HK-Y vs SIN-Y Dream11 Team : Frontrunners for the glistening trophy, Hong Kong and Singapore set to light up the marquee tournament today
Two of the finest sides in this edition of the ACC U19 Eastern Region Cup , both equally deserving finalists and both will be clashing heads against each other today for a shot in the semi-final. Both Hong Kong and Singapore have regaled us in an engrossing brand of cricket, intertwining both the batting and bowling departments pristinely to find themselves making it all the way to this stage.
Now up against each other, the two sides are set to dish our way a riveting clash, one where either side will leave no stone unturned to make it to the summit clash. Touted as one of the biggest tournaments in the Asian continent for the upcoming countries, for all the partaking semi-finalists, their journey so far in the crucial encounters is a massive testament to the unprecedented progress they have made in the cricketing fraternity.
Hong Kong without a doubt are heading into this encounter as the firm favourites, a team who is yet to be defeated in the matches they have made an advent in. It was their win against Malaysia in the previous match which captivated us the most as the side went onto pummel one of the strongest side in the frontier event by 3 runs.
Posting a healthy 172 while batting first, the defence of the total was even more impressive as Hong Kong maintained the requisite composure to get through a cliff-hanger of a match. Elsewhere while Singapore were extremely impressive in their opening two fixtures, the side were brought crashing down against a clearly better Nepal side who defeated them by a massive 217 runs after putting on 326 while batting first.
While the resolute nature of Singapore’s side has left us extremely impressed with the relatively new entrant into the field showing massive determination and resolve to find themselves in this position, Hong Kong are just going to be too good for them on the day. The Hong Kong is currently one of the best team in the tournament, a flawless side who have failed in no facet and we see them coming out of this match with a win as well.
Wicket-Keeper for HK-Y vs SIN-Y Dream11
The sole player in the opening segment of our side with Aarush Bhagwat coming in for us here from Hong Kong’s side.
Batsmen for HK-Y vs SIN-Y Dream11
We’ll begin with the players from Hong Kong with Kalhan Mac Challu and Mehran Zeb coming in. Not only are both of them among the top scorers for their side this tournament but have also been given a outing with the ball, making them indispensible from our side for this one.
Only the one player from Singapore for us in the form of Hari Kukreja, their leading run getter. In a batting line-up that has crumbled when put under pressure, he’s kept waging a lone battle and we envision him delivering the runs once again for us.
All-Rounders for HK-Y vs SIN-Y Dream11
The second highest scorer in the tournament, Nasrulla Rana makes a way into our side from Hong Kong with Mohammad Hassan Khan accompanying him given the astuteness he’s shown to prevail and come up with important cameos.
The highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far with the 9 wickets to his name, Singapore’s Vinit Mehta has been one of the most formidable bowlers to navigate past this tournament. A massive reason for bundling out Chine for a petty 28 runs, he’s got to lead his bowling department if Singapore are to have a chance of coming out of this with a favourable result. Chandramauli Sridev is the second pick from their side.
Bowling Order for HK-Y vs SIN-Y Dream11
2 matches and 7 wickets sees Hong Kong’s Vikas Sharma become the first option we went for while crafting out this department of our Dream 11 side. Singapore were bundled out for just 109 against Nepal, along with losing 2 wickets in their pursuit of 29 against China, epitomising how unstable a batting unit they are. Based on this narrative we have also opted for Mohammed Hasan to come into our side for this one.
From Singapore its Pranav Sudharshan who comes in for us as the lone selection from the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain for HK-Y vs SIN-Y Dream11
Vikas Sharma is chosen as our captain for this one while we have gone with Nasrulla as the vice-captain today.
