The defending champions Bangladesh confirmed their place in the semifinals of the ongoing AHF Cup after they defeated Iran by 6-2 goals in their third Pool B match at GBK Hockey Field in Jakarta on Tuesday.

Bangladesh, who defeated Indonesia and Singapore by 7-2 and 7-0 goals respectively in their opening two matches, continued the same form against Iran and notched up their third successive win.

Ashraful Islam scored a hat-trick while Khorshadur Rahman, Milon Hossain and Roman Sarkar added one each for the winning side. Iran’s Mohammad Salehipour and Navid Taherirad scored one each that only reduced the margin of defeat.

Bangladesh will now face Oman in their last group match on Thursday at the same venue and the match will finalise their semifinal opponent.
