South Asia’s upcoming eight team party in Nepal gives an opportunity for Bhutan to try and claw their way off the foot of the World Rankings with a whopping three fixtures, their only fixtures so far in 2013.
Bhutan are in Group B alongside Afghanistan, Maldives and Sri Lanka. Naturally all of these teams are ranked higher than Bhutan, but not so far above that we can’t get a little giddy at the prospect of a little upset here. Afghanistan are the highest ranked at 139, followed by Maldives at 153 and Sri Lanka at 170.
Bhutan’s fixtures are as follows:
|2ndSeptember 2013||v. Afghanistan||Halchowk Stadium, Kathmandu, Nepal||4thSeptember 2013||v. Maldives||Halchowk Stadium, Kathmandu, Nepal||6thSeptember 2013||v. Sri Lanka||Halchowk Stadium, Kathmandu, Nepal|
The other group is made up of Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan.
