The 39th match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Hong Kong and Nigeria at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium Nursery 1 in Abu Dhabi.

Hong Kong have fallen short of expectations and have managed only two wins, while losing three of their five games. The team has four points and a net run rate of -0.383.

Kinchit Shah is the top run-getter for Hong Kong with 194 runs from five games at an average of almost 40 and best of 79. Nizakat Khan has also made 118 runs from five games at 23.60.

Their troubles have been with their bowling as none of their players have stood out. The team would be expecting good returns from Kyle Christie in this match.

Nigeria are placed at the last spot in the group B of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019. The team has lost all of its four matches. The performance is best described by their terrible net run rate of -3.782.

Nigeria played their last match against United Arab Emirates which they lost by five wickets. Batting first, the team scorecard looked quite weird. After losing both openers Daniel Ajekun and Sulaimon Runsewe for just two runs, 
Nigeria went into a shell.

Although Chimezie Onwuzulike and Joseph Adedeji remained unbeaten for 46 and 51 respectively, they made no attempt to put their foot on the pedal, both batting at a strike rate of under 110 as Nigeria ended at 111-3 from their 20 overs.

Sylvester Okpe has shown some fight for the team with ball in hand.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Hong Kong- Nizakat Khan, Ahsan Abbasi, Kinchit Shah, Aizaz Khan, Waqas Barkat, Simandeep Singh, Scott McKechnie, Haroon Arshad, Ehsan Khan, Raag Kapur, Kyle Christie

Nigeria- Daniel Ajekun, Leke Oyede, Joseph Adedeji, Isaac Okpe, Ademola Onikoyi, Chimezie Onwuzulike, Sulaimon Runsewe, Chima Akachukwu, Abiodun Abioye, Daniel Gim, Sylvester Okpe
