Nizakat Khan, the captain of Hong Kong, does not want to make the same mistakes that ultimately cost them the game against India in their 2018 Asia Cup match.
The Hong Kong captain was tired of the errors that cost them the match against the top-ranked T-20 side last time around by a slim margin of 20 runs, on the eve of their opening Asia Cup matchup against India.
The 30-year-old was eager for the match against India because they are the top-ranked squad in T20Is and will be a tough test for the team.
We Would Like To Test Ourselves Against India: Ehsan Khan
“Obviously the last Asia Cup, the format was different, it was played in ODI format. The way we played last time was exceptional but we made mistakes. So if we are in the same situation again, we would like to correct ourselves and win the match” Ehsan was quoted as saying by ANI.
The crew is fired up to take on the Men in Blue and perform just as well as they did in their previous meeting.
He mentioned the thrill of playing India, “India is one of the best cricket-playing nations and there is a buzz in the team to face them. The boys are pumped to replicate the last time’s performance. Virat Kohli is my favourite player. The changes he brought to the Indian team are incredible. I follow him closely and he is the best out there.”
On Wednesday, Hong Kong will face India in its opening Asia Cup game. They won the qualifying tournament, which also featured Kuwait, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates, and went undefeated to qualify for the event.
