Forces teams in semifinals

Bangladesh Navy, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB), Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh Police moved into the semifinals of the Bashundhara Presents Independence Day Kabaddi tournament at the Shaheed Suhrawardi Indoor Stadium yesterday.

Bangladesh Navy beat Barisal 49-24 to emerge group A champions while Bangladesh Army handed a massive 106-32 defeat to Dinajpur to finish Group B runners-up behind Bangladesh Police, who were declared winners after Bangladesh Air Force refused to play at one stage in protest of a referee's decision. Police were leading the match 9-7 at that time.
