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.
