Kabaddi WC 2016: Bangladesh crush Australia by record margin

Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], Oct.18 (ANI): Bangladesh produced a terrific performance as they thrashed Australia by a record margin 80-8 in their league tie of the ongoing Kabaddi World Cup at the TransStadia Arena here last evening.

The victory margin of 72 points was the biggest at the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup.

Aruduzzaman Munshi scored 17 points for Bangladesh whereas Sabuj Mia scored nine tackle points. Australia suffered the ignominy of being the first team to not reach double figures in the World Cup.

Bangladesh still have an outside chance to make it to the semi-finals but will have to rely on England to upset India in their next match. Australia's World Cup journey ended on a low as they put on a disappointing performance.

Bangladesh made a solid start as they led 6-0 after three minutes and Australia were staring at an all out. Bangladesh duly inflicted an all out in the next minute to lead 9-0. Australia's raiders struggled to get a foot in the game. Aruduzzaman Munshi scored four raid points for Bangladesh in the first 10 minutes.

It took Australia nine minutes to open their account as their defence made a tackle to trail 1-14. Bangladesh were cruising to a comfortable win as they led 16-1 after 10 minutes. Australia suffered the second all out of the match in the 12th minute to trail 21-1. Neither Australia's attack nor their defence could cope with Bangladesh's intensity and crumble under pressure.

Not a single raider could score a point for Australia in 15 minutes as they trailed 1-25. Zia-ur-Rahman scored five points in the first half for Bangladesh. Australia earned their second point - a technical point --in the 18th minute but Bangladesh inflicted another all out in the 19th minute to lead 32-2. Australia suffered further humiliation as Bangladesh made a super raid in the 20th minute to lead 36-2 at the end of the first half.

Australia scored two points at the start of the second half as two Bangladesh defenders went off the court while making a tackle. Bangladesh inflicted another all out in the 24th minute to lead 43-4. Australia were yet to make a successful raid after 25 minutes as it was turning out to be the most one-sided match of the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup. In the 28th minute, Bangladesh inflicted another all out to lead 53-4.

Australia finally managed to get their first raid point in the 28th minute as Nicholas Cunningham scored as they trailed 5-56. Sabuj Mia achieved a high five for Bangladesh as they continued to dominate and led 60-6 in the 32nd minute. A sixth all out was inflicted by Bangladesh in the 34th minute to lead 67-6.

Nothing went right for Australia as Bangladesh continued to increase their point tally and led 69-6 with less than five minutes left on the clock. Bangladesh inflicted the seventh all out of the match to lead 75-7. Bangladesh scored 42 raid points and 18 tackle points to record a massive 80-8 win.(ANI)
