ISLAMABAD: Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) has postponed the Asian Junior Cup that was scheduled to be held in Dhaka (Bangladesh) from June 4.

Besides Pakistan and host country Bangladesh, the event was to be participated by Malaysia, Korea, India, Japan, China, Chinese Taipei, Oman and Uzbekistan teams. Asia Cup was supposed to serve as qualifying round for the next year World Cup scheduled to be held in India.

The decision was taken in wake of COVID-19 outbreak that had already crippled sports activities around the globe. The AHF is expected to announce new dates for the event once outbreak gets settled down.
