Kabaddi World Cup 2016 Final India vs Iran Highlights India are champions

India will face Iran in the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup in Ahmedabad.

India will face rising Asian power Iran in the summit clash of the tournament tomorrow.

Iran had earlier defeated South Korea in a low-scoring thriller. Iran came back from 11-13 down to beat the Koreans by 28-22.

In the second semifinals, it was total domination from the experienced Indian side against a young and energetic Thailand team.

Such was India's domination in the tournament that they gave away just 20 points to their opponents in four out of six games.

India, who had lost just one encounter in the tournament -- first against Korea -- scored 42 raid points as against Thailand's 15.

In tackle points also, India were in complete control as they scored 18 points against Thailand's just four, while the hosts had 12 all outs.

Earlier in the day, Iran also ended Korea's unbeaten run in the tournament.

After losing the toss, Iran was asked to make the first raid of the game and Meraj Sheykh made sure that he does not disappoint his side.

However, Koreans managed to put pressure on Iran till the end of first half as they lead 13-11. Jang Kun Lee remained their top scorer tonight with four raid points.

Meraj was the top scorer for Iran as he finished with seven points followed by Abozar Mighani adding four crucial points for his side.

Last four minutes of game saw Iran not getting any point through raids but it was their defence, which made sure that they do not let the game slip from their hands.
