India vs Hong Kong, Asia Cup 2022: Recap: When Dhoni, Raina, Sehwag destroyed HK in 2008 in Karachi

0

Hong
Kong
is
a
rare
opponent
for
India
in
international
cricket
as
they
are
still
an
associate
nation
and
they
get
to
play
the
big
boys
only
if
they
qualify
for
the
global
tournaments
conducted
by
the
ICC
or
ACC.

So
much
so
that,
India
have
played
Hong
Kong
only
once
in
international
cricket,
incidentally
in
the
Asia
Cup
when
it
was
held
in
Karachi
in
2008.

Here’s
a
recap
to
that
match.


1
India
bats
first

After
winning
the
toss,
India
captain
MS
Dhoni
decided
to
bat
first.
Virender
Sehwag
and
Gautam
Gambhir
opened
the
innings
for
India
and
the
former
was
in
fine
touch
as
the
Men
in
Blue
raced
off
the
block.
Sehwag
hammered
a
44-ball
78
and
Gambhir
made
a
rather
sedate
54-ball
51
as
India
reached
127
in
the
15th
over.
HK
bowler
Najeeb
Amar
dismissed
both
the
openers
in
quick
succession
and
Rohit
Sharma
soon
got
run
out
as
India
lost
three
wickets.

But
Dhoni
(109
not
out
off
96
balls,
6×4,
6×6)
and
Suresh
Raina
(101,
68
balls,
7×4,
5×6)
hammered
the
Hong
Kong
bowlers
around
as
India
rattled
374
for
4
in
50
overs.

HK
batters
falter

Once
India
made
a
total
as
imposing
as
374,
Hong
Kong
never
stood
a
chance
but
you
might
have
expected
them
to
reduce
the
margin
of
defeat
with
a
spirited
batting
effort.
But
there
was
none.
They
lost
wickets
at
regular
intervals
and
could
not
handle
the
leg-spin
of
Piyush
Chawla,
who
bagged
4
wickets
conceding
23
runs
in
10
overs.
Sehwag
bagged
the
last
two
HK
wickets
as
they
were
bowled
out
for
118
and
India
emerged
winner
by
a
massive
256
runs.

Trivia

Rohit
Sharma,
who
made
his
international
debut
in
2007,
is
the
only
surviving
member
from
that
team
as
all
others
have
retired
from
top-flight
cricket
and
Robin
Uthappa
is
still
active
in
domestic
cricket.
In
the
14
years
since,
Rohit
has
seen
many
ups
and
downs
in
his
career
and
is
currently
the
India
captain
in
all
three
formats,
succeeding
Virat
Kohli.
