Bangladesh U-23 football team were in search of their first win in the SA games but were held to a draw against Maldives U-23 in their second match of Round Robin league in Kathmundu.
Bangladesh took the lead via an own goal from Akram Ghanee just before half time. But Maldives came back in the second half strongly and Ibrahim scored the equalizer in the 70th minute for them.
Bangladesh's striker Nabib Nawaz Jibon got many chances to score but failed to put the ball into the net.
Jamie Day's men had a chance to rise up in the points table, as they have been targeting the gold medal but tonight's result puts them in the bottom of the table.
Bangladesh will face Sri Lanka U-23 team in their third group match tomorrow at the same venue.
