Hong Kong quadrangular series is a tournament between the four teams Hong Kong, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Malaysia all set to take place between March 8 to March 12, 2023. Hong Kong will be delighted to host a series in their backyard which gives them a great opportunity to play against other nations outside World tournaments and qualifiers. Hong Kong and Bahrain are associate nations and ICC has provided them T20I status. Hong Kong last played T20I matches in 2022 Asia Cup against big nations like India and Pakistan while Bahrain played Malaysia Quadrangular series on Dec 23, 2022. We expect a good contest between these two teams in this match.
Hong Kong Skipper Nizamat Khan will open alongside Yasim Murtaza in this series. They have a strong middle order with the players like Babar Hayat, Kinschit Shah, Aizaz Khan, and Scott McKenzie. They have good depth in their line-up with all-rounders Zeeshan Ali and Ehsan Khan in their lineup.
Pacers Haroon Arshad and Ayush Shukla will open the bowling with Aizaz Khan expected to bowl in the middle and death overs alongside the duo. They have variety in spin attack with the trio of Ehsan Khan, Yasim Murtaza, and Mohd Ghazanffar
Key players: Nizamat Khan, Harron Arshad, Ehsan Khan.

Bahrain will be led by Sarfaraz Ali and he will open the batting partnering alongside Prashant Kurup in this series. The trio of Imran Anwar, Sohail ahmed, and Haider Butt will form the vital middle order for the team followed by the likes of Ahmed Nissar and Waqar in their lower middle order.
They have a strong bowling attack with pace quartet of Rizwan Butt, Sarfaraz Ali, Imran Anwar, and Imran Khan in their playing XI. Zeeshan Abbas will lead their spin attack in the middle overs with Waseeq Ahmed for support at the other end.

Mission Road Ground is a bowling friendly venue here bowlers will enjoy the slowness and uneven bounce on the track. We expect have a bright, sunny, and humid climate throughout the match with no interruptions expected.
Mission Road Ground is the only international cricket venue in the Hong Kong soil, and they have hosted ODIs & T20Is in both men’s and women`s cricket. We expect the average scores to be around 120-140 runs in this match.
Chasing is the best option in the T20I matches with batters nowadays confident of chasing down any target with their attacking mindsets. Both skippers will opt to bowl first if they win the toss.
Hong Kong has an experienced playing XI with a home condition to their aid in the match. But they have not played competitive cricket for a long time and might be rusty to begin the tournament. Bahrain will be high on confidence after winning the recent Malaysia quadrangular tournament. They have a good pace attack and a spin duo to complement them in the middle overs. But, we expect Hong Kong to win this match owing to their home advantage.
Hong Kong will win the match!
