In the big contest of the night, South Korea came back from 0-9 down to lead at half time against Bangladesh and that scenario repeated itself in the second half too. Bangladesh retained their lead in the second half before Jang Kun Lee turned the game upside down with a Super Raid and then a touch to flip things from 28-31.

The win means Korea remain unbeaten in the Pool A standings and jump over India with three wins in three matches to post 15 points.

Thailand thrash Kenya 53-21 in Kabaddi WC

Thailand produced a dazzling performance to notch up a comfortable 53-21 win over Kenya in a group match of the Kabaddi World Cup.

Thailand captain Khomsan Thongkham led from the front and scored 14 points to lead his team to the impressive win. Thailand got their strategy spot on as they targeted

Kenyan dangerman David Mosambayi who was sent packing to the bench for more than 24 minutes.

It was a disappointing performance by Kenya who had shown so much spirit and heart in their previous match against Iran. David Mosambayi had a disappointing night and scored just two bonus points.

Thailand are now third in Group B with 10 points from three games whereas Kenya are fourth with six points from the same number of matches. (-PTI)
