They were the far more dominating team within the tournament as they proved it with a 30 goal difference to take the top spot at the concluding match at the Men’s Asian Challenge 2017, Yangoon, Myanmar. Throughout the tournament the team seemed as they did a metamorphosis and showed a persistent lust for goals. After defeating Brunei in the final they go on to become champions of this year’s tournament.
The Asian Challenge was introduced by the Asian Hockey Federation in 2013 to provide the second-tier hockey nations in Asia with more opportunities to compete on the international level against opponents of a similar standard. The event’s inaugural edition was held in Bangkok, Thailand, two years ago and won by the team from Sri Lanka, ahead of Myanmar and Thailand, with Thailand B coming fourth.
