Iran runner-up at Kabaddi World Cup
Iran was defeated against arch-rival India 38-29 in the Kabaddi World Cup final in Ahmadabad, India on Saturday.

India trailed 13-18 at the half way mark but came back strong in the second half of the game.

 Ajay Thakur, who was India’s key raider throughout the tournament, was top scorer of the game with 12 raid points.

Iranian skipper Meraj Sheykh gave a tough fight with his 5 points.

India and Iran’s rivalry has been a one to watch out for. The two sides have met in four major finals (two World Cups and two Asian Games) and India have beaten them in four encounters.

However, at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, Iran squandered an eight-point lead in the dying minutes to lose 27-25, a loss which still haunts them to date.
