India beat Bangladesh in a must-win contest by 57-20 margin.

Hosts India outclassed Bangladesh 57-20 in a league clash of the Kabaddi World Cup. In a must-win encounter in Group A, India lived up to their reputation to beat Bangladesh. Ajay Thakur scored 10 points for India after coming on as a substitute whereas Pardeep Narwal led India’s charge in the first half and ended with eight points. India have got their World Cup campaign firmly back on track after suffering a setback in the opening encounter against South Korea. India’s defence put on a tremendous show as they kept the Bangladesh raiders in their pocket for most of the match.

Iran held off a terrific second half performance by a spirited Kenya to register a 33-28 victory in a hard fought clash. It was Iran’s third consecutive win but they were made to work extremely hard by Kenya. Iran captain Meraj Sheykh missed the game due to a stomach bug and his absence was felt by his team. Kenya will take a lot of heart from the performance as they actually outscored Iran in the second half. Fazel Atrachali scored five points for Iran whereas captain David Mosambayi scored seven points for Kenya. Iran hold on to the top in Group B with 15 points from three games and remain on course to seal a semi-final berth.
