Live Score, Asia Cup 2018, Pakistan vs Hong Kong ODI Match: While Pakistan have won all their last five ODI matches, Hong Kong have won only two.
Hong Kong will be hoping to prove to others that they are not there just to make up the numbers. Hong Kong are in Group A along with Pakistan and India and made this year's Asia Cup by beating UAE in the final of the qualifying tournament. Before the tournament begun, ICC awarded ODI status to all the Asia Cup matches. That announcement meant that all the matches involving the Hong Kong cricket team - the only team in the tournament without ODI status - will be classified as ODIs. Hong Kong, after playing Pakistan, will face India on September 18.
Pakistan will be the favourites going in the match as it is nearly three years that they lost an ODI in the UAE. The last loss for Pakistan in the UAE had come against England in November 2015 and since then they have won all the eight matches played there. While Pakistan has won all their last five matches, Hong Kong has only won two of their last five matches and lost three.
