Kabaddi Masters: Confident India eye top spot

Dubai, June 24: India will aim to continue their winning momentum and secure the top spot in Group A when they face arch rivals Pakistan in their third match of the Kabaddi Masters at the Al Wasl Sports Club here on Monday. Having won both their previous matches against Pakistan and newbies Kenya, the Indians’ spirits are high as their raiders as well as defenders have made things look easier on the mat.

In the first game against Pakistan, the Ajay Thakur-led Indian team started off sensibly, gauging the weakness and strength of their opponents in the initial minutes before thrashing them by notching up a tsunami of points. The second game against Kenya also went the same way when Indian raiders Rishank and Monu Goyat along with defenders put Kenya on mat and won by a huge margin. India took full advantage of both team’s weakness. The strategy of first gauging their strengths and weaknesses paid off really well. In the upcoming match India will try the same tricks as two more raiders joined the Pakistan squad for the crucial tie. IANS
