The coronavirus pandemic has changed the dynamics of the game worldwide, it has restricted many clubs financially, however opportunities will arise through adversity and this is very much an opportunity for me to lead a wonderful club.

Thank you to hosts Bangladesh and good luck to India and Maldives in the final.
