Boosted by a thumping win over Japan, the Indian men's hockey team will look to continue their momentum when they take on hosts Bangladesh in their second Pool A match of the Asia Cup. India will aim to polish their skills further before heading into their final preliminary clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on Sunday.
Earlier, India started off their campaign with a 5-1 win over Japan at the Maulana Bhashani National Stadium on Wednesday.
S.V. Sunil (3'), Lalit Upadhyay (22'), Ramandeep Singh (33'), and Harmanpreet Singh (35', 48') were the goal-scorers for India as they emerged victorious.
It was also a winning debut for Sjoerd Marijne as the national coach.
The Asia Cup is India's only tournament prior to the year-ending FIH Hockey world league finals.
