The Asia Cup is into its third match as of Monday, with Sri Lanka battling for survival in the tournament while facing Afghanistan. India are the only side so far in the tournament to not have opened their account in the tournament, which they'll be doing on Tuesday when they take on Hong Kong in the second Group B clash.
India will look to brush aside the disappointment of the 4-1 Test series loss at the hands of England in their recently-concluded tour when they begin their Asia Cup campaign, in which they start off as the defending champions. The biggest absence from the Indian team this time around will be that of captain Virat Kohli, who was rested by the selectors, with the leadership duties being taken over by Rohit Sharma.
Rohit, who had earlier led India to title triumph in the Nidahas Trophy triangular series, will have MS Dhoni for company on the field as far as tactical inputs are concerned.
Hong Kong, meanwhile, were hammered by Pakistan in the second match of the tournament. Opting to bat first, Hong Kong hardly got any partnerships coming their way, with Usman Khan and Hasan Ali emerging the leading wicket-takers for Pakistan to bundle the minnows out for a lowly 120. In response, Imam ul-Haq hit a fine half-century as the former champions won with eight wickets and more than 26 overs to spare.
