The Anup Kumar-led India kabaddi team will take on England in their final group game of the Kabaddi World Cup 2016 on Tuesday in Ahmedabad. The hosts are already close to making it to the knockout stages of the tournament following three consecutive wins from their four matches so far.
South Korea have made it to the last four of the tournament from Group A. If India beat England, they will be the other team to enter the knockout stages from Group A. From Group B, Iran will be joined by either Japan or Thailand in the last four.
After the opening game defeat against South Korea, the India team have showed all the grit and determination to record dominating wins against Australia, Bangladesh and Argentina in their last three games. Anup as well as the likes of Ajay Thakur and Pardeep Narwal have performed brilliantly so far and the momentum definitely seems to be with the team at the moment.
England, meanwhile, have two wins and two losses from their four games in the tournament and seem to be the underdogs in the match. However, having said that, the away side have made improvements in the tournament following their defeat against Bangladesh in their opening game.
Defender Tejash Depala and skipper Someshwar Kalia are the two players to watch out for England in the match.
India vs England is scheduled for a 9 pm IST (4.30 pm BST, 9.30 am EST) start on October 18.
