The 26th match of ICC T20 Qualifiers 2019 will feature a battle between Jersey and Hong Kong where Jersey will look to capitalize on the momentum they had generated last night by recording a win over the hosts, U.A.E. Their opponents, Hong Kong had lost their previous match against Oman by 7 wickets.
Jersey has a chance to move to the top of the points table if they secure a win against Hong Kong tonight, while a victory for the Hong Kong team will help them snap their three-match losing streak and open their account on the points table. They have already lost to Ireland, Oman and U.A.E. in this tournament and a defeat in tonight's match will potentially end their hopes of finishing in the top half of the points table.
Talking about the players to watch out for, Kinchit Shah will have the onus of scoring the runs for Hong Kong whereas Jersey will expect Jonty Jenner to continue his fine form in the tournament.
In the bowling department, Jersey will rest their hopes on captain Charles Perchard and, from the opposition bowling attack, Kyle Christie will be the player to watch out for.
