Babar Azam will lead Pakistan against Hong Kong in the last group match of ACC T20 Asia Cup 2022 on Friday in Sharjah. This will be the first match between the two teams in the shortest format.

Pakistan’s opening pair of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan are currently placed at the first two spots in the ICC T20 Batters Rankings.

Pakistan is confident of clinching a place in the Super 4 stage of the tournament by defeating Hong Kong, who were beaten by table-toppers India on Wednesday in Dubai.

Pakistan lost a nail biter against India on Sunday as well.

Fakhar Zaman: “It was a tight game against India, the morale is high in the camp and all our players are confident of doing better in the upcoming game.

“T20 is a short format which provides an equal opportunity for both teams to show-case their strengths. To aim for the Super 4 we have to ensure we minimise our errors and put up a good show.

“Hong Kong has played good cricket in the qualifiers but we will try to stick to our plans.

“The weather is hot here in UAE but we are trying to keep ourselves hydrated. We’ll be playing against some competitive teams in Super 4 and for that we need to be in perfect shape.

The match will be played at the historical Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
