The men’s Indian basketball team registered a resounding 65-point victory over Bangladesh by 106-41 to win the South Asian Basketball Association (SABA) Championship 2021 on Friday for the sixth time.

With three wins in three matches, India was at the top of the four-nation tournament, which was conducted at the Shaheed Suhrawardy Indoor Stadium in Dhaka. Led by captain Vishesh Bhriguvanshi, India were the clear favourites to win the title as they faced little to no resistance in all the matches they competed in this year’s tournament.

Earlier, India defeated Maldives by 57 points (88-31) in their opening match of the SABA
Basketball championship. India (rank 78) played against Maldives (rank 142), defending
champions Sri Lanka (rank 132), and Bangladesh (rank 146) in this tournament

In their second match, India defeated Sri Lanka by 114-48.

This was the eighth edition of the SABA Championship, organised by the South Asia Basketball Association (SABA). India won the inaugural edition of the competition in 2002, followed by each of the five editions they have participated in — 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and now the 2021 edition.
