Indoor Asia Cup: BD start with 6-0 defeat

Bangladesh began their Indoor Hockey Asia Cup campaign on a losing note as the debutants suffered a 6-0 defeat against three-time runners-up Malaysia in Chonburi, Thailand yesterday.

Bangladesh, playing the six-a-side indoor hockey for first time, conceded two goals within the first five minutes before settling down a bit on the rubber surface. 

The Bangladesh team, featuring players of the national team with experience of playing only on traditional turf, went to the lemon break trailing by four goals before conceding two more goals in the second half of the 40-minute game.   

Bangladesh will play their second match against seven-time defending champions Iran today.
