The 11th match in Group B of the ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup 2019 will be played between India Emerging Team and Hong Kong Emerging Team at the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protisthan No 3 Ground in Savar.
The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (3:00 AM GMT) (8:30 AM IST).
A surprise defeat to Bangladesh team put the chances of a semi-final place in a spot of bother for India Emerging Team. They got full points against Nepal in the first match but suffered a big defeat against Bangladesh. This affected their NRR as they are now placed below Nepal in the Group A points table which is topped by the home team. A comfortable win against Hong Kong will see India into knockouts unless Nepal stuns Bangladesh on Monday. Hong Kong will have an outside chance if they beat India comfortably and Nepal losses to Bangladesh by a similar margin.
The Savar’s BKSP No.3 Ground is unlikely to receive any rain during the match.
Coming into the tournament, the BKSP No.3 Ground recorded 300+ totals in four of the last five List A matches. However, the first two games in this tournament produced only 193 and 246. Compared to the other three venues, the numbers here are slightly better. If India bat first again, they are sure to put on a big score which they missed in the first match.
