    So we are playing two teams from Pot 3 & one team from Pot 2 in the Hero Cup next month.. Now we just need two friendlies before qualifiers. One team from Pot 1 & one from Pot 2..
    Let's invite China

  • @munna219777 Why cant Sri Lanka play in other venue if there is security threat? or they havent given gurantee of security ?  teams play in other venues right? or rules are different for WC qualifiers ?

    I think once draw is out, all teams would be interested in getting opponents from other pots (except the ones they are drawn with) so ideally we should play 3 friendlies,
    2 from pot 2
    1 from pot 3(own pot)

    I dont see point in playing against china, they dont pose same threat as japan/Iran and chances are high that we will lose game against pot 1 team no matter what (except may be UAE and China)
    instead test squad in home conditions away games will be tough , we should try and win all or most games at home 
    take one venue and test everything there , Bengaluru /Mumbai would be good

    Dream qualification scenario for India must be this group
    Pot 1 - UAE or China 
    Pot 2 - Lebanon or Krygyztan
    Pot 3 - India
    Pot 4 - Hong Kong or Maldives
    Pot 5 - Cambodia or Srilanka

    Whatever it is, hope we get a strong pot 1 team in our group. So that they can clean sweep the rest of the teams. Would suck to have a mediocre pot 1 team who draws with a pot 4 team

    How come Uzbekistan and Iraq are in Pot 2? I thought bothese were as good if not better then some of the Pot 1 countries like China or UAE...
