Asia Cup: Shikhar Dhawan feels Hong Kong scare will help India in Pak clash
Opener Shikhar Dhawan hit a superb century as India survived a wobble to secure a 26-run victory over Hong Kong at the Asia Cup in Dubai on Tuesday. Batting first in the Group A fixture, Dhawan guided India to 240 for two from 40 overs, chalking up his 14th one-day international hundred before he was dismissed on 127, with 15 boundaries and two sixes. Ambati Rayudu had earlier made 60 off 70 balls, but the Hong Kong spinners responded following Dhawan’s departure with a late flurry of wickets to restrict India to 285 for seven. Kinchit Shah finished with three for 39.
