Indian fans felt that the biggest challenge India would face during the 2022 Asia Cup would be against arch-rivals Pakistan. India faced Pakistan in their opening match of the 2022 Asia Cup and ended up winning by 5 wickets.

Their second match in this tournament is against Hong Kong which is arguably the weakest team in the Asia Cup. India will play Hong Kong on 31 August at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

India vs Hong Kong T20 Match Odds

India are the defending champion and are the favorites to win against Hong Kong as well as the 2022 Asia Cup. These are the betting odds on Bet365 as of this writing.

Team Odds On Bet365
India 1.01
Hong Kong 29.00

Very rarely do you get such one-sided betting odds but in this case, the odds are justified as India is a T20 powerhouse while Hong Kong is still trying to find its feet in the T20 format.

If you end up betting on India, there’s really not much that you can win due to the low odds. However, if you are willing to take a risk and put your money on Hong Kong, there is a big risk-to-reward ratio due to the odds.

Afghanistan surprised Sri Lanka in the opening game of the tournament and caused an upset. Will Hong Kong be able to surprise India and cause the biggest upset of the tournament?

2022 Asia Cup: India vs Hong Kong Winner Prediction

We don’t think so as we expect India to cruise to victory and teach Hong Kong that there are levels to T20 cricket in this game.

Hong Kong does not have the firepower in its batting and bowling departments to cause any threat to the men in blue.

On the other hand, India has an excellent bowling attack with both their pacers and spinners having the ability to run through the Hong Kong batting line-up.

We expect this game to be a rather one-sided affair and we don’t think Hong Kong will be able to pull off a surprise upset against India as the men in blue have too many match winners in their squad.

India vs Hong Kong Top Runscorer Betting

We expect this to be a rather one-sided affair with India piling on the runs and hence we are going to back one of the Indian batsmen to finish as the top run scorer.

Since Hong Kong does not have a great bowling attack, we expect the top three batsmen to score most of the runs.

We have also included the captain of Hong Kong Nizakat Khan as he will look to lead from the front and make a big score.

Prediction: Rohit Sharma failed against Pakistan and will be looking to make up for that against Hong Kong. Virat Kohli (35) found form against Pakistan and will want to carry that form into the game against Hong Kong. We are going to back Kohli to win the top runscorer betting market.

India vs Hong Kong Top Wicket-Taker Betting

We are not going to feature any Hong Kong bowlers on this list as we don’t think they have the arsenal to run through the Indian batting order.

We do think India’s bowling attack will make quick work out of Hong Kong and hence all of our featured bowlers are from India.

Prediction: Bhuvneshwar Kumar did a great job against Pakistan taking four wickets and was supported by Hardik Pandya who took three wickets. We think Bhuvneshwar Kumar will once again to win the top wicket-taker betting market.

India vs Hong Kong Player Of The Match Betting

Since we expect India to win this game comfortably, we are going to feature all Indian players on our list as key man of the match contenders.

Prediction: We are going to back Virat Kohli to play a match-winning inning and win this game for India along with the man of the match award.

India vs Hong Kong Expected Team

India: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (C), Virat Kohli, Surya Kumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Arshdeep Singh.

Hong Kong Squad: Nizakat Khan (C), Aizaz Khan, Babar Hayat, Kinchit Shah, Yasim Murtaza, Zeeshal Ali, Shahid Wasif, Scott McKechnie, Ehsan Khan, and Aftab Hussain.

India vs Hong Kong T20: What Can We Expect?

Hong Kong will go into this game with nothing to lose as no one expects them to win. They will relish the opportunity of playing against India and their players will treasure the experience for a lifetime.

India will most likely retain the same playing XI against Pakistan as they look to build momentum in the tournament. We had earlier posted an India vs Pakistan T20 betting preview as well.

Their batsmen did not have a great game against Pakistan, so this will be a perfect opportunity for the likes of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and SK Yadav to get some runs.

If India bat first, expect them to set a big score in excess of 200. If Hong Kong ends up batting first, India will look to bowl them out for below 150 and then chase that total down in 12-15 overs, which should make it an exciting outing for the fans.
