India won match 4 against Hong Kong by 40 runs and also secured their spot for the Super 4 set of the Asia Cup 2022. However, Hong Kong showed great intent by not giving up and hitting Indian bowlers all over the park while chasing 193 runs, especially during the powerplay and death overs.
India while batting first, Rohit Sharma looked in good touch but he failed again to convert his good starts into big knocks.
