Hong Kong chose to bowl vs India
This is Hong Kong’s first match at the 2022 Asia Cup; they made it to the tournament by winning all three of their games in the qualifying event in Oman. The last two of those wins had come while chasing and Nizakat said the team wanted to adopt the same strategy against India. They also picked the XI that had helped them script those two victories.
