Bangladesh have won the first match against Chinese Taipe (3-2)

Check this story:
"The Sri Lankan team, which was reportedly coming here by road, will reach the capital Thursday, the opening day of the meet."

Unbelievable. national team travelling thousand miles to play a tournament by road in this day and age. I am sure they will be one tired team in the tourney. Just think about the journey back if they don't qualify.

Indonesia didn't come I guess. Thats why BD played Taipe. Good win but I would like to see a larger margin. Thanks Miraz bhai for the score.

Though the tourney consisted of the weaker teams, it is good to see that bd hockey players are still doing good and fighting hard. Congrats ...
