The tournament which will be held in Sri Lanka from June 24 to July will be participated in by two young chess players from Bangladesh; national sub junior champion Fahad Rahman (U-14) and National Junior champion Abdullah Al Saif (U-16).
Niaz initially volunteered to accompany Fahad for the tournament of his own accord, but later when the newly elected committee of the federation approached him, the first Grand Master of the country decided to accompany the team as coach-cum-manager in the Asian Youth Chess Champion-ship, said BCF’s joint-secretary elect Morsalin Ahmed.
