Press Release: Hockey Asia Cup: Pakistan Face Hosts Bangladesh on Opening Day
10th Men’s Hockey Asia Cup starts on Wednesday at Maulana Bhashani Hockey Stadium in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka.
On the opening day, all the four teams of pool A will be in action.
In the first match, India would face Japan while the second game would feature hosts Bangladesh and Pakistan; starting at 4.30 PM PST
This will be the fifth meeting between Pakistan and Bangladesh in Asia Cup.
Pakistan have won all the four previous encounters without conceding a goal.
However, when Dhaka last staged the Asia Cup in 1985, Bangladesh gave Pakistan a good run for their money, losing only by the score of 0-1.
Pakistan, at that time, were the undisputed king of hockey holding all the titles: Olympic, World Cup, Asian Games and Asia Cup.
