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.

And that’s it! Bangladesh 80-8 Australia

Bangladesh have ended up with the highest total by any team in the Kabaddi World Cup. The Australians have been absolutely taken apart in this match and Bangladesh still technically have a chance to make it into the knockouts but that is hanging on England upsetting India tomorrow. But Bangladesh have shown that they can get it going and that they are a team to beat.

Iran look to continue unbeaten run

Iran notched a tough 38-34 win over Japan to continue their unbeaten run at the Kabaddi World Cup at the TransStadia Arena on Saturday.

Iran survived a scare against Japan to emerge eventual winners and remain on top of Group B with 20 points from four outings. Japan, on the other hand, are second with 10 points from three games.

On Saturday, Iran began brightly and led 6-1 after six minutes as Japan struggled to get a foothold in the game.

Considered as one of the title favourites, Iran looked in brilliant form as they barely gave Japan an inch in the game. Kazuohiro Takano scored Japan’s second point as they trailed 2-12 in the ninth minute.

Meraj Sheykh then added four points to help Iran dominate the first half and go 19-9 up at the break.

Iran began the second half in the same dominating style as Sheykh’s raid culminated into an all out with Iran leading 26-9 after 23 minutes.

Japan put up a strong fight in the second half and matched Iran for the last 20 minutes before Iran forced another all out in the 33rd minute to lead 35-18.

Japan mounted a strong comeback in the last seven minutes as they scored 10 points in a row to trail 28-35 in the 37th minute. Masayuki Shimokawa scored eight points for Japan in a valiantly attempt to take his team over the line.

In the end, Iran used their experience and held their nerves to fight back against Japan’s late show before wrapping up the tie in their favour.
