Hockey team's losing practice
Bangladesh national hockey team went 2-1 down to mighty Pakistan in a practice match ahead of the South Asian Games at the Maulana Bhasani Hockey Stadium yesterday.
Despite having dominated the first-half from the word go, the visitors could manage only a 1-0 lead by the breather.
After the break, Bangladesh regrouped to step up the attack for the equaliser and found it soon when defender Mamunur Rahman Chayan converted a penalty corner.
But Pakistan had the last laugh through a last moment goal.
Bangladesh will play their first match of the Games against Sri Lanka on January 30 while Pakistan start their campaign taking on Nepal the next day.
