Former India player turned veteran commentator Aakash Chopra expects Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to make good contributions with the bat in the game against Hong Kong. They will lock horns with Nizakat Khan’s side in their final Group A match in Dubai on Wednesday (August 31). Kohli and Sharma, who spent some time at the crease against Pakistan, will hope to do well.

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra predicted: “Kohli and Rohit will together score more than 75 runs. There is a good possibility that only the top three get to bat if India are chasing; the others might not get to bat. If India bat first, they might lose just two or three wickets; there is a strong possibility. I feel Avesh and Arshdeep will together pick up five or more wickets. Arshdeep – left-arm and new ball – he is going to hit the pads or the stumps, he is going to do something or the other. He will do a good job.”

Meanwhile, he dismissed Fakhar Zaman in India’s first game against Pakistan but gave away 19 runs in the two overs he bowled. Arshdeep Singh, on the other hand, finished with decent figures of 2-33 as well, despite bowling his final two overs with five fielders inside the 30-yard circle also.

“Avesh, who bowled only two overs in the last match, I feel he will bowl the entire quota of four overs in this match because if you know captain Rohit well, he gives chances to the youngsters in such matches. I feel two guys will be either leg-before or bowled. The situation will become bad because the ball will move like a snake. It’s a foregone conclusion; I am saying India will win. Don’t count this prediction at all because India is going to win, both you and I know that,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
