Bangladesh team return home after finishing third in ABFI Baseball
Bangladesh team returned home Sunday after finishing third at the ABFI Presidential Cup International Baseball Championship. Bangladesh’s Taposh Das was adjudged best fielder of the tournament. The men in red and green defeated host India in their match before losing to Nepal in their next game. In the semi-final, India exacted sweet revenge over Bangladesh. India went on to clinch the title Friday after beating Nepal at Guwahati Indira Gandhi Athletic Stadium in Assam. It should be mentioned that key Bangladesh players and officials were unable to accompany the team to India after being denied the visa. The eight-nation tournament was organised by Amateur Baseball Federation of India.

The eight participating teams – host India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Iran, Iraq, Bhutan and Bangladesh – were divided into two groups. The top two teams from each group advanced to the semi-finals. The 28-member Bangladesh contingent, comprising 19 players and nine officials, left for Assam last week. It is mentionable that ever since the game of baseball was introduced in Bangladesh in 2006, the country has not taken part in any international tournament.
