Kabaddi Masters: India bests Pakistan again


India shut out Pakistan 41-17 in the Kabaddi Masters Dubai 2018, at Al Wasl SC here on Monday. India’s status as tournament favourite remained unchallenged, as the side recorded a second-straight group stage victory over Pakistan.

A ‘Super Raid’ by Rohit Kumar early in the encounter gave India a 12-3 lead, and there was no looking back from there. A few minutes later, Rohit landed a hard side-kick to Nasir Ali’s stomach, which left the Pakistan skipper down for the count on the mat.

Nasir was forced to take a medical timeout, which affected Pakistan’s chances of making a comeback.

Earlier, Iran edged out South Korea 31-27 in an exciting outing.

The results: Iran bt South Korea 31-27; India bt Pakistan 41-17.
