Bangladesh faces powerful SKorea in opener today

The host Bangladesh will meet stronger South Korea in the opening match of the fourth edition of the Bangabandhu Cup 2024 International Kabaddi Tournament today (Sunday) at the Shaheed Suhrawardy Indoor Stadium in Mirpur.

The prestigious Kabaddi tournament named after Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman will begin with an exciting match today that will also be an acid test for the host.

For the hat-trick champion Bangladesh, a team like two-time World Cup semi-finalist South Korea is a much stronger opponent.

 South Korea is considered one of the best teams in the tournament and the match result will say a lot about the next matches.
The host which won the first two editions beating Kenya and won the hat-trick trophy beating Chinese Taipei will try to do well in the first match and have a good start.

In the other matches today, Nepal will meet Kenya at 5:00 pm, Iraq will engage with powerful Japan at 6:00 pm, and Thailand will take on Uganda at 7:00 pm.

A total of 12 teams from the three continents of Europe, Africa and Asia are going to participate in the meet. Poland, Kenya, Uganda, Japan, South Korea, Iraq, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka and host Bangladesh are participating in the eighth-day meet.

Japan, South Korea and Uganda are participating in this tournament for the first time.

The grouping and fixtures were finalised in the managers meeting on Saturday. Bangladesh is in Group-A with Nepal, Poland, Indonesia, Malaysia, and South Korea. On the other hand, Group-B gets Iraq, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Uganda, and Japan.
