Iran beat India in the semifinal of the Kabaddi event on Day 5 of the Asian Games 2018. TheSportsRush brings India vs Iran Kabaddi highlights.

Day 5 at the Asian Games 2018 has been a day of massive upsets. After the South Korean women’s team failed to qualify in the archery recurve event for the first time in Asian Games’ history, India’s men Kabaddi team soon followed.

India faced a huge upset in the semifinal of men’s Kabaddi, as the team lost to Iran 27-18. The men’s team, without the likes of Surender Nada, Manjeet Chhillar and Surjeet Singh, went down to Iran’s solid defensive game-play.

The Indian team was highly inexperienced, and many players were participating in a major tournament for the first time. Previously, India also lost to South Korea in the group stages of the tournament.

With the loss in the semifinal, India’s men team have won the bronze medal at the Asian Games 2018. India’s women team, meanwhile, will take on Iran in the gold medal match tomorrow.
