Asia Cup 2022: Pakistan will meet India, who topped Group A, on Sunday.

Pakistan set up a second showdown against arch-rivals India in as many weeks with a record 155-run win over Hong Kong in a must-win Asia Cup match in Sharjah on Friday. Mohammad Rizwan had to work hard for his 78 off 57 balls as Pakistan got a much-needed final flourish to post 193 for two against Hong Kong.

Hong Kong were simply blown away in the run-chase with Pakistani attack proving to be too good for them. Their innings folded up for just 38 in 10.4 overs, sending Pakistan into the Super 4s as the second placed team from Group A. It was Pakistan’s biggest win in the shortest format. Pakistan will meet India, who topped Group A, on Sunday.

Hong Kong had shown a bit of potential with the bat against India but they simply surrendered to the Pakistani attack. It was a procession after Naseem Shah struck twice in the third over of the innings. Then it was the turn of the spinners, Shadab Khan (4/8) and Mohammad Nawaz (3/5), to do the damage as they shared seven wickets.
