Playing in front of the full house, Thailand had no fear against the Queens of the Caribbean, trading blows with the tall and powerful opponents before falling 29-31 25-13 28-30 25-20 14-16 in the most entertaining showdown of the Bangkok stop so far.
The Kingdom failed to return the favour to Dominican who beat them 3-0 12 months ago at this venue. Out of eight matches since week No 1, Thailand have lost five with three wins from each of the three Pools.
Thailand face a daunting task against Turkey, the 2018 silver medalists, who outclassed Bulgaria 3-0 (25-14 25-9 25-23), in the last match of the Pool on Thursday. Turkey extended their impressive run to 7-1, Bulgaria still have yet to win a match from eight attempts.
