HK Vs MAL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Final group sage encounter to determine which side makes an advent into the Asia Cup qualifiers
Paired on level points to sit right adjacent to each other in the ACC Eastern Region T20, when Hong Kong and Malaysia clash heads in the middle today, this encounter will define their future in the cricketing arena. With the one win and one defeat apiece, today’s winner will emerge into the ensuing round of the qualifiers for the Asia Cup as they assure themselves of second berth in the points tally.
Handed their first defeat in 8 T20s by Singapore the last time around, for Malaysia the result was a sharp awakening. After dominating sides in the Asian region, the side were comprehensively outplayed and decimated by Singapore who sent them back to the pavilion for a mere 111 after piling on an extremely hefty 239 while batting first.
Elsewhere, Hong Kong were also given their first defeat of the competion by Singapore but the manner in which it came about was massively better than Malaysia’s defeat. The side fell short by 16 runs in pursuit of Singapore’s 168, a performance filled with fight and character, traits they’ll be needing in abundance when the two sides face off in the middle once again.
This will be an extremely closely contested affair, one where either side will leave no stone unturned to emerge on the winning side especially given the ramifications emerging from the encounter. What should work in Malaysia’s favour is the batting heavy unit it comes equipped with, one which will guide the side to a win on the day.
