PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Weather at Sheikh Zayed Stadium looks good for this match and no rain threat is seen.
- Hong Kong will surely depend on their batsmen as Haroon Arshad who scored 64 runs off 40 balls against the Netherlands in the team’s last game.
- Nizakat Khan and Shahid Wasif are two players who have been consistent with the bat.
- Ehsan Khan, Kyle Christie and skipper Aizaz Khan will make up the bowling attack.
- Ehsan has taken ten wickets in eight T20Is and the off-spinner is more likely to trouble the Irish batsmen in these conditions.
- Kinchit Shah will also try to make an impact on the match with the ball.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI OF Hong Kong
Nizakat Khan, Ahsan Abbasi, Kinchit Shah, Waqas Barkat, Haroon Arshad, Aizaz Khan (c), Scott McKechnie (wk), Shahid Wasif, Ehsan Khan, Kyle Christie, Nasrulla Rana
- Ireland will expect their batsmen Paul Stirling, Kevin O’Brien, Andy Balbirnie and Gary Wilson to score runs for them.
- Paul Sterling, who has been consistent, scored 59 runs against Nepal in the previous match. Paul will be opening the innings against Hong Kong.
- Andrew Balbernie will also be among the players to watch out for.
- Boyd Rankin, George Dockrell and Mark Adair are the main bowlers of their team.
- George Dockrell took three wickets against Nepal and will pose a threat to Hong Kong’s batsmen.
