Watched the men's Kabaddi semis. Korea was pretty good and in next 4 years time they will be a team to watch. Most probably India will play Iran in the finals and it is not going to be easy.

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

In women's Kabaddi India looked very sloppy in their semi final match with Thailand today and Iran demolished Bangladesh. The against Iran is going to be an extremely interesting match. In the last Asian games India just about managed to beat Iran by a weird tie breaker.
