Pakistan will take on Hong Kong in a virtual knock-out match in Group A of the Asia Cup 2022.
The Men in Green had lost the first game against India by 5 wickets at the Dubai International Stadium, while Hong Kong also lost to the same opposition by 40 runs.
The winner would move to the Super Four stage, where India, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka have already qualified.
Ahead of the game, Babar Azam met with the captain of Hong Kong, Nizakat Khan.
The Pakistan Cricket Board’s Twitter handle posted a video of their conversation where the Hong Kong skipper is seen urging Babar to provide him batting tips.
Hong Kong played well against the Men in Blue when they dismissed Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, but Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli took the game away from them. Chasing 193 was never going to be easy, and the minnows fell short in the end.
