Kenya finished second in this year’s Bangabandhu Cup International Kabaddi Tournament after a narrow 34-31 loss to hosts Bangladesh on Thursday.
Kenya like Bangladesh were unbeaten heading into the final played at Shaheed Noor Hossain Volleyball Stadium in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
The homeboys were hoping to carry out revenge on the hosts who upset them 34-28 last year, but they only managed to improve the margin of loss.
Kenya was using this year’s tournament to prepare for the World Cup in December 2022 in Dubai, a competition in which they also finished second last year.
Victor Obiero was voted the tournament’s best raider.
