UAE take on Hong Kong with Asia Cup Spot at stake

The sixth and final match of the Asia Cup Qualifier is likely to be the virtual Final.

The top two teams on the points table will be facing each other for a lone Asia Cup Spot. Hong Kong have made two wins from two matches, beating Singapore and Kuwait.

Whereas UAE started with a 1-wicket loss against Kuwait on the second day of the tournament. UAE then thumped Singapore by 47 runs.

If they beat Hong Kong, they are the likelier side to finish at the top of the table, having superior NRR. [ However, In the worst-case scenario, UAE might not qualify for Asia Cup even if they get past Hong Kong, if Kuwait register a big win over Singapore]

It means Hong Kong, despite two wins, still need to make three wins in a row to stay top of the table.

The team that finishes top of the table joins India and Pakistan in group A. Six-team tournament will take place from August 27 in UAE.
