DHAKA Bangladesh U-21 hockey team took 2-0 lead in

the five-match U-21 Test Hockey Series beating Oman U-21 hockey team by 2-0

goals in their third match held on Friday at Moulana Bhasani National Hockey

Stadium.

converting a penalty corner early in the 9th minute while Saiful Islam

Shishir sealed the victory scoring the second goal for Bangladesh in the 53rd

minute of the match.

vantage position would not return to play after hitting the side bar in the

third quarter.

at the same venue at 5.30 pm.
