India`s kabaddi team drubs Pakistan to lift title

Chandigarh: The Indian Kabaddi team on Tuesday lifted its first ever Circle Style Championship title by defeating archrivals Pakistan 53-38 at Tabriz in Iran.

India and Pakistan were almost on even terms at the half- time score of 24-22, but in the second half India dominated proceedings, opening up a huge 15-points difference.

It is for the first time that the championship is being played outside India in which eight nations participated.

Punjab`s Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, the man behind popularising the traditional game at international level, said that the Asia Cup was a trailor of the second World Cup, to be held in in the state from November 1.
