In­dia aim to iron out flaws vs Bangladesh

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

A great start to the tour­na­ment achieved, the In­dian hockey team would look to iron out a few flaws when they take on hosts Bangladesh in its sec­ond Asia Cup clash here on Fri­day.

Bol­stered by the dom­i­nat­ing 5-1 win over Ja­pan in their cam­paign opener and con­sid­er­ing the fact that Pak­istan steam­rolled Bangladesh 7-0 on Wed­nes­day, In­dia will start as over­whelm­ing favourites and are ex­pected to win the tie eas­ily against the home team on Fri­day.

The In­di­ans, play­ing their maiden tour­na­ment un­der a new coach Mar­i­jne Sjo­erd less than a month af­ter he took over the reigns, looked im­pres­sive from the word go against Ja­pan.
