    FT India 57-20 Bangladesh

    A complete performance from Anup Kumar's men. The Indian defense that looked shaky in the first two games was right on their game today. Raiders Pardeep Narwal and Ajay Thakur broke the early resilience of the Bangladeshi defense and since then it was all India. Substitute Surender Nada claimed a high five after coming on in the second half and has staked claim for the left corner position. Mohit Chhillar and Nitin Tomar also impressed after coming on. Great win for India

    Timeout takes and India leading 44-17 with seven minutes still to go!

  • 21:45 (IST)

    Everyone is coming to the party for India. Surender Nada and Mohit Chhillar among the points. Deepak Niowas Hooda who was substituted earlier gets a raid point. This is good from India who will now look to rack up more points. 

  • 21:37 (IST)

    Second half starts. India lead 29-12.  Ajay Thakur has kept India's score ticking and the Bangladeshi defense has no answers at the moment

  • 21:31 (IST)

    HT: India 25-10 Bangladesh

    Easily India's best half. The hosts have clicked as an unit. The cover combination of Manjeet Chillar and Surjeet has worked. Sandeep Narwal has been immense at right corner. Pardeep Narwal has always looked like picking up points and Ajay Thakur has just put up a strong claim for a staring spot. Great half for India!

  • 21:25 (IST)

    Another all-out! The wheels have come off Bangladesh and the Indian raiders Ajay Thakur and Pardeep Narwal have pounced on every error. Good kabaddi from India

  • 21:21 (IST)

    Ajay Thakur comes on for India and comes away with a point. Pardeep Narwal has unsettled the Bangladesh defence which looked so well at the start of the game. India lead 18-7

  • 21:16 (IST)

    India pulling away. Pardeep Narwal is having a good evening and the Indian defence has looked very assured today. Great signs. India lead 9-4

  • 21:09 (IST)

    Pardeep Narwal tackled well by Bangladesh who level the score at 2-2. Good defensive play from the visitors who showed plenty of patience

    Anup Kumar succumbs to an ankle-hold as Bangladesh take the lead. But Pardeep Narwal takes point back

    ​Live action next. Stick around

    After Iran's hard-fought win over Kenya, it's time for India to take on Bangladesh in a must-win game for the home side. Can Anup Kumar and co. show their class

  • 20:44 (IST)

    The game remains in the balance as few basic raiding mistakes from Iran has given Kenya a chance with five minutes left. Iran's Fazel Atrachali has picked up form in the last few minutes with his trademark ankle holds troubling the Kenyan raiders. Iran  lead 27-14

  • 20:35 (IST)

    Kenya reducing the deficit through the bonus points. Their defence has kept the Iranian raiders at bay for the last few minutes. David Mosambayi's team are hanging in there and giving themselves a chance. Good play!

  • 20:31 (IST)

    Iran playing it wisely. Not giving away the super tackles. Kenyans getting the bonus points, but can they earn a few revivals. Iran Lead 22-15

  • 20:25 (IST)

    A solid half from Iran who are without a few key players for this clash. Abolfazl Maghsoudlou has been in good form for Iran and has already claimed a high five. n the other hand the Iranian defence has given nothing away and kept David Mosambayi in check. However, the Kenyan captain's super tackle and a few raid points has kept the African nation in the hunt. Stay tuned for the second half

    India may be favourites, but they need to be wary of the fact that a loss to Bangladesh could put their campaign in real trouble

    Welcome welcome welcome!!!

    India are back in action in the Kabaddi World Cup 2016 today. The hosts brought their campaign back on track with big win over Australia in their last match, but a loss against South Korea means, India face a must win situation against Bangladesh who have so far shown that they aren't here to just make up the numbers. In the other group, Iran take on Kenya in another crucial fixture. So stick around for all the Live updates from a pivotal day in the Kabaddi World Cup.

India vs Australia Report: India bounced back in style as they crushed Australia 54-20 to record their first win of the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup here on Saturday. After losing to Korea in their opening match on Friday, India needed to make a statement and they did it in an emphatic manner.

In the match against Australia, India benched Rahul Chaudhari and Jasvir Singh and started with Pardeep Narwal and Sandeep Narwal in their place. Indian substitutes played a key role in the victory as the bench contributed 20 points. Ajay Thakur was top scorer for India and scored seven points - all scored after coming on as a substitute.

Australia scored their first point as Campbell Brown got a bonus in the sixth minute. Deepak Niwas Hooda scored with a raid as India led 13-1 after seven minutes. India came out all guns blazing as they inflicted another all out in the 11th minute to lead 20-2.

Such was India's dominance that all Australia could score were bonus points in the first half.

Pardeep Narwal scored five raid points while Manjeet Chhillar got a high five for India. Kuldeep Singh scored three points for Australia in the first half. India were well on top at the end of first half and led 32-7 at the break.

Rahul Chaudhari came on in the 29th minute and immediately scored with his raid as India led 41-12 after 30 minutes. Australia's defence had a nightmare and failed to score a single point throughout the match. Rahul scored two points with a raid in the 34th minute as India took an unassailable 45-14 lead.

A fourth all out was inflicted by India in the 36th minute to lead 49-15. Australian captain Campbell Brown scored five points for Australia. Kuldeep Singh scored Australia's first super raid in the dying seconds of the match but India had far too much in their locker and won 54-20.
