Bangladesh are set to face a strong Nepal side in their crucial third match of the Bangamata Asian Senior Women’s Central Zone International Volleyball Championship 2019, at Shaheed Sohrawardi Indoor Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka Tuesday.

Bangladesh kicked off their campaign in the tournament with a 3-0 victory over Afghanistan, before losing to Maldives by the same margin on Sunday. 

Meanwhile, Nepal have won both their first two games, against Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan, by 3-0 margins. 

All of the matches were held at the same venue.

Ahead of today’s match, Bangladesh head coach Golam Rasul Mehedi backed his newly formed team to perform well, although admitting the Nepal side had more experience and skill. 

Nepal declared volleyball as their national sport two years ago.

“We watched Nepal’s last game. They are far better than us in terms of skill, height and experience. They play volleyball all round the year, whereas it is only the first tournament for our girls. But considering the way we fought against the Maldives, I am hopeful. If we give our full effort, we can cause an upset,” Rasul said.

In the game against the Maldives, Bangladesh lost the opening set 25-16, but the latter two were much more tightly fought. The women in red and green lost the second set 27-25, and the third 25-22. 

With the top two teams of the round-robin stage set to compete in the final, Bangladesh need a victory over Nepal to keep hopes of winning the tournament alive.

Bangladesh will end their round-robin campaign with their match against Kyrgyzstan Wednes.
