Asia Cup today match, IND vs. HK full highlight: India is in charge of the match against Hong Kong in Group A of the Asia Cup. Aizaz Khan's dismissal has left Hong Kong down by four wickets in their 193-run chase. Babar Hayat, who had given Hong Kong hope in the game with his lusty smashes, had earlier been dismissed by Ravindra Jadeja, who earlier claimed his crucial wicket. Jadeja also used a direct stroke from the point to finish Nizakat Khan's time in the middle.
As Hong Kong lost starter Yasim Murtaza, Arshdeep Singh gave India an early breakthrough. Murtaza misjudged his pull, and Avesh Khan caught him at the fine leg. KL Rahul was dismissed after scoring a savage 36 off 39, and captain Rohit Sharma (21) also failed to contribute. Ayush Shukla and Mohammad Ghazanfar each selected a wicket for Hong Kong. Rishabh Pant replaced Hardik Pandya, who was rested, in India's starting XI from the previous match.
Team India wins the game by 40 runs with a single on the final ball. The team led by Rohit Sharma has now qualified for the Super 4.

The way we started with the ball, until the 13th over we were amazing. Our fielding was amazing as well. But we slipped after that. The way Suryakumar batted, it was good to watch. It was a good opportunity for all the boys. We were away for a long time, credit goes to boys and I am really proud of them. We are gonna sit down tomorrow, we'll have a look at our death bowling. We will improve. Hong Kong skipper Nizakat Khan
We batted pretty well to start with, got to a very good score. Came out and bowled reasonably well, we could have done slightly better with the ball. (SKY) The kind of innings he played today, the words will be short. We have seen that with him every now and then. He comes up with suck kinds of knocks. He just comes out and bats fearlessly which is what the team expects from him. Some of the shots he played today, those are not written anywhere in the book. It was very pleasing to watch. Shot selection was also crucial. We know he can play all around the park. We have also informed the group about this as well. Most of the guys are ready to take the opportunity and be ready to bat wherever required. That's the flexibility we need. We'll take those chances. We are going to try and use the right match-ups. India skipper Rohit Sharma
