India hammer Iran to lift Kabaddi Masters trophy
The last few seconds saw Iran taking few points but it was too late as India wrapped up the issue comfortably
Dubai: Skipper Ajay Thakur's brilliance helped India hammer Iran 44-26 in the final match to lift the Kabaddi Masters trophy at the Al Wasl Sports Club here in Dubai.
Iran, who impressed with their performance in this six-nation meet, were expected to give some fight to the mighty Indian team but they failed to do so. Right from the beginning, their defenders and raiders struggled in a match which was delayed for couple of minutes in the first half as the lights went out.
Unperturbed by the aggressive game, India played camly and slowed down the pace of the game. Coach Srinivas Reddy also made a few substitutions, brining in experienced Rahul Chaudhary.
