India made no errors in dismantling Thailand in the semi-final.

In what will be a repeat of the Kabaddi World Cup final, India will take on Iran in the eventual contest in Ahmedabad on Saturday after the hosts easily disposed off Thailand by a massive 73-20 margin. The harrowing win was made even better in the second half where India went 18 straight points without conceding.

Against a young Thailand side, the stalwarts of kabaddi left little room for error with Pardeep Narwal notching up the most points (14). Giving him good company was Ajay Thakur who picked up 11 points. Off the bench, Nitin Tomar did an excellent job to score seven points.
