On Thursday, a crucial Asia Cup 2022 matchup will take place when Pakistan faces Hong Kong in Group A. The contest winner advances to the Super 4 and takes on India on Sunday. Both teams will be trying to get back to winning ways after losing their first games to India. Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, met with Nizakat Khan, the captain of Hong Kong, outside of a practise session prior to the important game. Nizakat praised Babar for his performance and requested batting advice. They then moved on to talking about hitting, the nature of the bat, and other topics, which made for a fascinating exchange. Babar then retorted, “Kya Tip Chahiye?”
Sunday’s encounter between India and Pakistan featured a spectacular all-around performance from Hardik as India maintained composure to win by a thrilling margin of five wickets. Under intense circumstances, Hardik (3/25 in 4 overs) demonstrated his high value by assisting India in bowling out Pakistan for 147. The middle order was under additional pressure because India’s seasoned top-three struggled during what should have been an easy chase.
A 52-run stand between Hardik (33 not out off 17) and Ravindra Jadeja (35 off 29) put India on the verge of a historic victory. India won the match thanks to the star all-three rounder’s fours against Haris Rauf off the 19th over. Hardik hit a six off left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz to end the game when the side needed six off three balls. The top three Indian players entering the competition were the centre of attention, and all three — K L Rahul (0), Rohit Sharma (12 off 18), and Virat Kohli (35 off 34) — had difficult middle innings.
