Hong Kong came into the ACC Eastern Region T20 on the back of a record 0-5 series whitewash in the hands of Malaysia. However, they earned success straight away in the tournament as they thumped Nepal by 43 runs in their first game. Nepal were fresh off a record win against the USA during the CWC League 2 tournament at home. Hong Kong will now be up against the home team Thailand on Tuesday afternoon. The Thailand team suffered defeats in both the matches they played in the tournament thus far.
No threat of rain is forecasted at the Terdthai Cricket Ground where we might see periodic clouds on Tuesday.
The Terdthai Cricket Ground has provided a better deck for the batters in the afternoon matches compared to that of in the morning games. The fresh tracks get settled by the 2nd match of the day as they get rolled 2-3 times. However, the game between Hong Kong and Nepal witnessed the ball gripping during the 2nd innings. Hence, chasing is not advisable in the afternoon matches.
Average first innings score: 120 (T20Is in the afternoon)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 1
(Will be added when there is an update)
Probable Playing XIs:
Daniel Jacobs, Wanchana Uisuk, Henno Jordaan, Naveed Pathan, Ziaul Hoque, Robert Raina, Mahsid Faheem, Phiriyapong Suanchuai, Nopphon Senamontree, Vichanath Singh (C), Sorawat Desungnoen.

Bench – Mohsin Khan, Hamed Khan, Hassan Khan Mohammad, Nasrulla Rana.
Nizakat Khan’s string of low scores with the bat finally came to an end during the match against Nepal. Nizakat scored 48 from 29 balls with six fours and two maximums over a strong Nepal attack which will give him the confidence before big matches. Henno Jordaan has been easily the best player for the hosts Thailand in this tournament thus far. He scored 19 off 21 balls against Singapore and top-scored for his team against Malaysia with 37 from 47 balls with 4 boundaries. This tournament could well be a breakthrough one for the Hong Kong skipper Aizaz Khan who put on all-round performances during his team’s 0-5 series defeat. During the game against Nepal, he went wicketless but scored a 20-ball 29.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Kinchit Shah, Aizaz Khan, Nizakat Khan.

Batters – Nizakat Khan, Haroon Arshad, Daniel Jacobs, Henno Jordaan (VC)
All-Rounders – Kinchit Shah, Aizaz Khan (C), Ziaul Hoque
Bowlers – Nopphon Senamontree, Aftab Hussain, Mahsid Faheem
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Scott McKechnie
Batters – Nizakat Khan (VC), Shahid Wasif, Henno Jordaan
All-Rounders – Kinchit Shah (C), Aizaz Khan, Ziaul Hoque
Bowlers – Ehsan Khan, Aftab Hussain, Mahsid Faheem, Vichanath Singh
Hong Kong’s Haroon Arshad offers an interesting role in the fantasy team. He is slated as a batsman in Dream11 and he does bat inside top four. With the ball, he picked up a 5-fer against Nepal and a 4-fer in the last match of the T20I series against Malaysia. But Arshad picked only one wicket across the 14 innings in his professional career before these two hauls. Hence, he can be considered a risky pick in the fantasy team.
Hong Kong is expected to defeat Thailand as they are a much stronger and experienced side.
