MATCH PREVIEW

Hong Kong

  • 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.

Ireland

  • 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.

PROBABLE WINNING TEAM:

We back Ireland as favourites to win this second match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 against Hong Kong.
