India thrash Bangladesh in Kabaddi World Cup
Bangladesh kabaddi team conceded their first defeat in the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup as they lost to favourites and hosts India 57-20 in their second match in Ahmedabad on Tuesday. Bangladesh captain Aruduzzaman Munshi scored six points while raider Pardeep Narwal scored the game's highest eight total points for the home side. Bangladesh raiders began their campaign with a crushing 52-18 victory over England on the second day of the tournament on Saturday, outplaying their opponents in all the departments. Aruduzzaman and Mohammad Sabuj Mia scored eight match points each, while Tuhin Tarafder scored six points.

Meanwhile, for England, Tope Adewalure was the top-scorer with eight match-points. Seven of his points came from successful raids. Captain Someshwar Kalia was given the first yellow card of the tournament, after he slapped a Bangladesh raider. Bangladesh have seven new faces in the squad and prepared for the tournament for the best part of the last two months. They did not play any practice matches during this time. Bangladesh Edible Oil Limited is sponsoring the side. Prior to their departure, Arduzzaman said they are targeting a silver medal in the World Cup where they have finished third in both the previous editions. The World Cup is being held after a nine-year hiatus. “We desire to retain the bronze medal but our target is to claim the silver. India are hot favourites in our pool so our main opposition are South Korea. If we can defeat them, we can rightfully expect a silver,” said Arduzzaman. They will face South Korea on Thursday. India, on the other hand, started with a shocking defeat of 34-32 against Republic of Korea in the inaugural match on Friday before returning to winning ways, beating Australia 54-20 a day later.
