Kuwait posted 151/9 on the board in their first innings. Yasim Mortaza (46) and Nizakat Khan (50) laid the foundations at the top for a successful chase. Babar Hayat also made an incredible 53 off 30 balls to ensure that the total was chased down. Mortaza’s 2/11 also made him Hong Kong’s best bowler.

Hong Kong is at the top with four points from two wins in two matches. Their net run rate is 0.716. If Hong Kong loses, it will be tied with the UAE but could lose the top spot to the UAE due to its lower run rate.

Hong Kong are yet to beat the UAE in an official T20I match, their previous match being in the T20 World Cup Qualifiers in October 2019.

United Arab Emirates are second in the table with one win and two points from two matches. Their net run rate of 1.045 gives them an advantage over table toppers Hong Kong.

They suffered a shock defeat to Kuwait, followed by a crushing win against Singapore that boosted their net run rate.

The UAE have the advantage of playing the next match and Kuwait can calculate the margin of victory they need if they beat Singapore comprehensively.

Kuwait is third with two points from two matches and one win. To qualify, they need to win big in their match against Singapore and hope UAE manages a narrow win. Their current net run rate is -0.421.

A win of at least 78 runs or more or a successful chase in around 11 overs will keep their NRR at a higher level than UAE’s.
Singapore dropped out of the race and sit at the bottom with zero points and won. Their net run rate is -1.375. Despite their woeful state, they can still play a role in deciding the qualifier winner and cause some chaos in the points table.

A win against Kuwait would eliminate Kuwait and make the final match between Hong Kong and the UAE a de facto final.
After losing to Hong Kong in the first match, they were bowled out for 113 while chasing UAE’s 161, a huge blow to their qualification hopes.

In the absence of Tim Davids, who is expected to be called up to Australia’s T20 World Cup squad, Singapore have struggled for runs.

The Asia Cup 2022 will be played from August 27 to September 11 in the United Arab Emirates.

The six teams were divided into two groups with India, Pakistan and one qualifying team in Group A; And Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan form Group B. Each team will play each other in the group stage and the top two teams from each group will advance to the Super 4 round. The top 2 teams from the Super 4 will qualify for the finals.

India, the current defending champions, won the 2018 edition of the tournament, its seventh title. It is the most successful team in the history of the tournament.
