The Kabaddi World Cup 2016 saw its second upset as Poland shocked Iran 41-25 in what was a one-sided affair in the end. Iran, expected to dominated Poland, committed silly mistakes in the match and ended up on the losing side. They have already qualified for the semi-final. In the second match of the night, Bangladesh humbled Australia 80-8 and complete the rout. Australia were in contention against Bangladesh and were all out six times the complete match. With the two results on Monday, Iran can now move to the second spot in the points table in the Pool B and avoid India in the semi-final. South Korea is the other team that has qualified for the semis for the Pool A. India play England on Tuesday.

    It's a perfect strategy by Iran. They fielded second rate players and lost the match. Riders jumped onto defenders as if they wanted to snared into the clutches and they are so many advance tackles.They didn't play to lose they pla to commit harakiri.

    People who are thinking of it as an upset are just stupid. It was a deliberate effort from Iran to avoid India in the semis. There should be an enquiry over the Iranians performance and should be banned from world cup.

    rightly said Rajat Anand. Iranians did not wanted to face India. it was a clear cut strategy. This sort of things will ruin the game

    You call it strategy or plan or whatever, even a layman could easily see through the game plan that Iran had unfolded against Poland. This sort of open exhibition of unsportsmanlike like demonstration will bring unpority to the game. May be this sort of strategies are quite common in all sorts of sports, but a budding sport of Kabaddi can hardly afford this type of luxury at this juncture.
