India head coach Igor Stimac will once again get to work with his men from October 3, in Guwahati, Goal can confirm. 

The Blue Tigers will next lock horns against Bangladesh on October 15, in Kolkata and the Croatian does not want to leave any stone unturned to pick up three points against India's neighbours. 

Although the coach is yet to decide on the final list of players that he wishes to summon, no major changes are expected in the squad. 

In their last outing, India pulled off a historic result against Qatar as the Maroons were held to a 0-0 draw at their own backyard. India were also missing several key players in Ashique Kuruniyan, Sunil Chhetri - both of them had good games against Oman last Thursday. But teamwork ensured they were not missed. Gurpreet Singh Sandhu stood tall under the sticks and made numerous saves to deny Qatar from finding the back of the net. 

India are now third on the table, a point behind Qatar and Afghanistan.
