Asia Cup 2022: Rohit Sharma one win away to break MS Dhoni’s record – India vs Hong Kong

India defeated Pakistan by five wickets to start Asia Cup on an excellent note. At one point, it seemed as though India could find it hard in the end. However, Hardik Pandya‘s calm knock helped India cross the line. In the first innings, it was a brilliant display by the bowlers to get Pakistan all-out for just 147. The Indian captain Rohit Sharma was also influential with his captaincy. Now, he is on the brink of breaking an important record. Rohit Sharma is on the verge of beating MS Dhoni‘s record in the India vs Hong Kong Asia Cup 2022 match.

India vs Hong Kong Asia Cup 2022 could see Rohit Sharma achieve an important record

With the win against Pakistan, Rohit Sharma now has six continuous wins in the Asia Cup. In 2018, India remained unbeaten under the leadership of Rohit. Only the game against Afghanistan was tied and the teams had to share the points.


MS Dhoni and Moin Khan also have six consecutive wins in the Asia Cup history. Hence, if India wins the game against Hong Kong, Rohit will go to the top of the list. It will be an important record for Rohit to accomplish.

The men in blue would want the important players to step up on Wednesday

Team India will be keen for the seniors to get some form in the game against Hong Kong. The likes of KL Rahul and Virat Kohli looked rusty against Pakistan. Rohit Sharma, too, struggled to time the ball. Hence, it is necessary for them to get some form against Hong Kong on Wednesday.


India could also be inclined to try someone like R Ashwin for the match. Since Hardik Pandya is doing well with the ball, Avesh Khan can be excluded and Ashwin can be given a chance. The Tamil Nadu man will also add depth to the batting unit.
