Dhaka: Bangladesh and Laos, the finalists, have been announced as joint champions of Bangamata U19 Women’s International Gold Cup 2019 as the match was called off due unplayable conditions caused by cyclonic storm Fani.
The local organizing committee of Bangamata U19 Women’s International Gold Cup 2019 and the tournament committee jointly agreed to call off the game considering the situation.
