Bangladesh scripted a remarkable comeback to beat Kyrgyzstan by 3-2 sets in an entertaining tie to clinch their second victory in the Bangamata Asian Senior Women’s Central Zone International Volleyball Championship on the last day of the round-robin league at Shaheed Suhrawardi Indoor Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka Wednesday. 

Kyrgyzstan were off to a flying start by winning the first set by 25-09 points before maintaining the same tempo in the second set, which they won 25-15. 

From 2-0 down, Bangladesh girls staged a brilliant comeback to level the game winning the next two sets 25-21 and 25-17. 

The host won the final set 15-11.

Bangladesh, who defeated Afghanistan by 3-0 sets in the first game before losing to Maldives and Nepal in the following matches, will face Kyrgyzstan in the third-place deciding match at the same venue Thursday.

Bangladesh earlier lost to Kyrgyzstan in a warm-up match two days before the tournament.

“I told my players not to lose hope after we fell behind 2-0. The girls realized their mistakes, that’s why they came back stronger. We play Kyrgyzstan again today and hopefully we will give a good fight and seal third spot,” said Bangladesh coach Golam Rasul Mehedi after the win.

Meanwhile, Nepal are favorite to win the title when they face Maldives in the final Thursday. 

Nepal outplayed Maldives by 3-0 sets in the other match yesterday to top the round-robin league with four consecutive wins, all by the same margin.
