The Indian contingent, who were camping in Ahmedabad for the past one and half months, will be travelling to Dhaka on from Mumbai on Monday morning.

India, placed in Group B along with the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Iran and hosts Bangladesh, will be opening their account against Iran on October 17 at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka.

Hosts Bangladesh will lock horns with India in the next game two days later with UAE and Jordan following up next on October 21 and 23 respectively.
