Pool A comprises the nations of Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Japan, and Singapore, while Pool B encompasses South Korea, Malaysia, China, Oman, Thailand, and Indonesia. Bangladesh is scheduled to engage in competitive activities with India, Pakistan, Japan, and Singapore.
Bangladesh performed well in the 2018 Asian Games held in Indonesia, earning a commendable sixth-place finish which matched their notable achievement in the 1978 edition of the games. Although they were defeated by South Korea in the match for fifth place, they had a strong showing in Pool B where they ranked third. Pakistan and Malaysia were the champions and runners-up in Pool B, respectively, and advanced to the semifinals.
Bangladesh will face tough competition in their upcoming matches as they compete against strong opponents like India, Pakistan, and Japan to secure a spot in the top three of Pool A. If they fail to meet this goal, they will have to compete in a classification match to determine their placement in the seventh or eighth positions. This outcome is dependent on whether they can achieve fourth place in the six-team pool.
Bangladesh will be participating in the upcoming multidiscipline event in Hangzhou, China. They are set to compete against Japan on September 24, which is a day after the opening ceremony.
Pool A: Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Japan, Uzbekistan, Singapore
