Even after four windows of competition in the Asian Qualifiers for the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, the teams competing in Group F have not yet been successful in qualifying for the World Cup. The next few days will most likely bring about a change in this situation.
All of these teams are rooting for a win as soon as they can so that they can secure a spot in the World Cup. At the moment, Australia is in the lead with a perfect record, but Iran, China, and Kazakhstan are all vying for second place.
As we move into Window 5 of the Asian Qualifiers, the following is how Group F currently stands in its standings:
The F Group
6 out of 18 games were played.
Every result from the first round will be carried over to the second.
*Eligible to compete in the World Cup
11 November 2022

- Kazakhstan vs Australia – 20:00 GMT +6 – Astana, Kazakhstan

- Iran vs Australia – 17:00 GMT +3.5 – Tehran, Iran
- Kazakhstan vs Japan- 20:00 GMT +6 – Astana, Kazakhstan
- Bahrain vs China – 19:00 GMT +3 – Manama, Bahrain
Iran’s match against China, which is also highlighted as one of the games to watch in this Asian Qualifiers window, is the matchup with the most attention-grabbing profile because it is the very first game. Since the two Asian powerhouses have not faced each other in a major competition since 2015, there is a good chance that tensions will be high right from the beginning of their matchup.
Even though the match between Iran and China is expected to be the most anticipated, the other games should still be played with the same level of intensity because each win brings the team one step closer to the World Cup… and maintain a greater distance between the two teams.
One to Keep an Eye On
- 187 centimeters tall or 6 feet 2 inches tall.”
- Statistics for each game played in the Asian Qualifiers: 22.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.0 assists
During the previous window, DJ’s scoring prowess earned him an average of 22.5 points per game, and it was this performance that won our hearts. As was to be expected, Vasiljevic had a spectacular first game with the Boomers, scoring at least 22 points in both of his team’s contests. The quality of the points scored by Vasiljevic was more impressive than the quantity of points scored because he shot 57.1 percent from the field, 50.0 percent from beyond the three-point line, and didn’t miss a single free throw.
The return of DJ for yet another window should improve the Boomers’ chances of ultimately securing that Qualification spot.
A Crucial Prospect
- POINT GUARD
- 172 centimeters tall or 5 feet 8 inches tall.”
- Statistics for the Asian Qualifiers: four points, two rebounds, and six assists per game
After making his debut this summer with the senior Akatsuki Japan team, fans of basketball in Asia should be very familiar with Kawamura at this point. Fans of Japanese basketball should be pleased with what they’ve seen from the young point guard in recent competitions such as Windows 3 and 4, as well as the Asia Cup. They should be even more pleased to learn that he is anticipating taking another step forward in his development.
Given what he already does well on the court, particularly on defense, whatever he improves on will be a welcome bonus for Japan’s performance at the World Cup, which it is co-hosting with Australia.
