Bangladesh finish sixth in Asia Cup

Bangladesh national hockey team ended their Men’s Asia Cup Hockey 2022 campaign by claiming the sixth position after conceding a 0-8 goal defeat to Pakistan in the place-decider in Jakarta, Indonesia on Wednesday.

Ali Mubashar scored two while Rizwan Ali, Afraz, Shahid Abdul, Umar Bhutta, Ahmad Ajaz and Ghazanfar Ali added one each for the winners.

However, Bangladesh have improved their world ranking from 29th to 27th after beating the hosts Indonesia by 4-2 goals in another place-deciding match (fifth to eighth) of the meet at the same venue earlier this week.
