This marks the end of a tough international season for the team, but they have done us all proud by qualifying for the World Championships in 2014, won the 3rd Qatar Invitation Tournament in 2013 and competed well at 17th Asian Men’s Championships in 2013.

Thank you to all those who followed along with the team as well as those who helped provide updates for matches etc.
