With five teams contesting the round-robin preliminaries in Pool A, each participating team has to play four matches.

Toray, this year’s winners of Japan’s V-Premier League, have already beaten Thailand’s Chang 3-2, Vietnam’s VTV Binh Dien Long An 3-0, Iran’s Gitipasand 3-0 and add Asia World VC to their list of casualties as they finished top of Pool A with 11 points.

Hard-hitting Saki Minemura and Arisa Takada were central to the victory as they tore through their rivals’ defence with a number of exceptional spikes.

The loss means Asia World VC drop to fifth in the group and means they are yet to win a set. They will face Thailand’s Chang, who fielded every player in their team to beat Iran’s Gitipasand in straight sets (25-11, 25-19, 25-18) on Tuesday, in their final preliminary clash.

I admired every player in my team for their good performance in the match against Gitipasand,” Chang coach Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai, “The Iranian team also performed well up to their standard. I fielded all players in my team to this match because I wanted them to gain valuable experience, especially the young players.”

In the third set, I sent all seniors to the court to check if they are still in their good form,” he added. “As far as I see them play, their form is alright despite the fact that some of them came up with unforced errors.

Zhetyssu from Kazakhstan downed Malaysia’s San Barbara Polo & Racquet in three sets (25-13, 25-6, 25-15) in the only match from Pool B on Tuesday.

The Kazakh side will face Sri Lanka’s S.L.B.F.E in their final match on Wednesday.
