Asia Cup 2018 in pictures: India survive Hong Kong scare with record opening stand of 174 runs

India were lifted to 285-7 by a punishing 127 by Dhawan -- his 14th one-day international hundred -- and an attractive 60 by the recalled Ambati Rayudu at Dubai Stadium. The Group A match was expected to be a one-sided affair, but Nizakat Khan scored a brilliant 115-ball 92 with 12 fours and a six, with skipper Anshuman Rath adding 73 to make India sweat for victory.
