Bangladesh are placed in the same Group B with Hong Kong, China, Nepal and Sri Lanka in the Women’s Junior AHC Cup 2019 scheduled to be held in Singapore on September 9-15

Ahead of the Junior Women’s Junior (U-21) AHF Cup 2019 next month, newly-reformed Bangladesh women’s hockey team will play their first practice match out of total six against visiting Indian national hockey academy players at Maulana Bhashani Hockey Stadium on Tuesday.

The Indian academy team under the Sports Authority of India (SAI) landed in Dhaka on Monday evening. The six friendly matches will be held from Tuesday to August 28 with only three rest days in between them.

The BHF recently appointed experienced Indian coach Ajay Kumar Bansal as a coaching consultant. Bansal will pick 18 players from 26 in the camp after watching the first three friendly matches. The new female hockey players have earned praises from Bansal already.

“I was little bit afraid earlier but what I found after coming here is that these female players are very talented. But it wouldn’t be wise to expect success from this girls now because they are still learning.” said the 60-year-old coach during a press conference yesterday.

Bansal added, “The SAI national hockey academy team of India is involved in training throughout the year. They recently played a series in Kenya. Bangladesh should give more focus on gaining experience than win or loss.”

Meanwhile, Bangladesh are placed in the same Group B with Hong Kong, China, Nepal and Sri Lanka in the Women’s Junior AHC Cup 2019 scheduled to be held in Singapore on September 9-15.
