India will take on Hong Kong in the 4th match of the Asia Cup 2022 on Wednesday. India held their nerves in a high-pressure game against Pakistan to open their account with 5 wicket win. Hardik Pandya’s splendid all-round display and Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s disciplined bowling performances were the main highlights of the match. Dinesh Karthik’s inclusion ahead of Rishabh Pant was the talking point of the town. India missed a left-hander in the middle which forced them to promote Ravindra Jadeja up the order which proved to be a match-winning one. They have hinted to make subtle changes in the playing eleven for this match,
Hong Kong, on the other hand, played some extraordinary cricket in the Qualifiers, winning all 3 matches to finish at the top of the standings. They will kick start their Asia Cup campaign from this match and will face a tough challenge from in-form India. Yasim Murtaza was their top performer with the bat in the Qualifiers while Ehsan Khan stood out with the ball, picking up 9 wickets. They believe they can upset India this time as they came so close in their previous meeting in 2018 though it was a different format.
What is the pitch report for IND vs HK, Asia Cup 2022, Match 4?

What are the Top Picks, players for Dream11, My11circle and MPL for IND vs HK, Asia Cup 2022, Match 4?
Top Pick – Batter
Rohit Sharma didn’t look convincing in the last game against Pakistan. India’s skipper managed to score only 12 runs at a lower strike rate of 66.66. He is expected to return to the form in this match.
Top Pick – All-Rounder
Hardik Pandya’s sheer all-round heroics against Pakistan won the game for India. We witnessed one of the greatest all-round performances in recent times. He picked up his all 3 wickets with well-directed short deliveries and later scored an unbeaten 33* runs.
Top Pick – Bowler
On the surface which was favorable for the quicks, Yuzvendra Chahal failed to pick a wicket against Pakistan. He is still a good pick for your fantasy teams considering his experience.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
Scott Mckechnie is lightning behind the stumps however he generally bats down the order. Consider him as the 2nd option in the wicket keepers category as there is still unsure of who will make it to the final eleven between Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant.
Yasim Murtaza was the leading run-scorer in the Qualifiers, scoring 130 runs in 3 matches at an average of 43.33 and even picking up 3 wickets at an economy of 4.5.
What are the fantasy suggested teams for IND vs HK, Asia Cup 2022, Match 4?
1. Scott Mckechnie, Babar Hayat, Nizakat Khan, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Lokesh Rahul (c), Yasim Murtaza (vc), Hardik Pandya, Ehsan Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh
