Dubai: Hong Kong captain Nizakat Khan opted to bowl against India after winning the toss in their Asia Cup match here on Wednesday.


Fresh from his all-round exploits in the five-wicket win over Pakistan, India’s star all-rounder Hardik Pandya was rested, and Rishabh Pant returned to the playing XI as the team’s only change. ”Hardik is rested considering how important he is for us, Pant comes in,” skipper Rohit Sharma said at the toss.
