Now if they want to qualify for the main round, they need to beat the Hong Kong team by a big margin and pray that Oman beats UAE in the match that will be played following the Afg Vs HK match.
The Afghani team had played really well in the recent past and has set huge expectations as far as the upcoming two major tournaments approaching. One being the Asia Cup itself and other the ICC World T20, which is going to begin in a couple of weeks time.
Apparently, team Hong Kong has played well but not enough to get the victory and has been ruled out from the preliminary round.
If the Hong Kong makes an upset against the Afghani team, then chances for Afghanistan will also end to reach to the main stage and the battle will remain between UAE vs Oman as the match will be played in the evening tonight.
No matter how disappointing this tournament has been for the Hong Kong team, but they have got one-star player getting a huge amount of runs, B Hayat, who scored a century in the first match followed by a half century against UAE and he would be the player to watch out for in today’s match.
