According to IRNA, the Asia Cup competition started last Tuesday, hosted by the city of Jakarta, Indonesia, in a situation where all eyes are on this competition. On the one hand, the host Indonesia is looking to be among the top eight teams and participate in the world competition, and on the other hand, the contending teams are looking to prove their merits and win the title in this event.

In the seventh place, Japan is one of Iran’s teammates in the Asia Cup, and the Philippines is in the next place. Bahrain, Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia are also seen higher than Iran, and the national basketball team of our country is surprisingly included in the twelfth rank, which is worthy of consideration.
After the Iranian skyscrapers, 4 other teams; Chinese Taipei, host Indonesia, India and Syria can be seen, of course, in the same report, the reason for this ranking is also announced, according to which, the loss of the Iranian national basketball team against Kazakhstan in the World Cup window is one of the reasons for Iran not being in the top ranks of this table.

They have seen Iranian basketball in this position.
