Asian Games: India beat Iran to win record 6th kabaddi gold

NEW DELHI: Indian men's kabaddi team continued their golden run by winning record sixth Asiad kabaddi gold after beating Iran 37-20 in the finals.

With the addition of this gold medal, India have so far won 12 golds, 15 silvers and 32 bronze medals at the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou, China on Friday.

The indomitable Indian kabaddi team dished out a brilliant performance right from the start as they outwitted their opponents to take a convincing lead of 24-3 at the lemon-break.

However the Iranians bounced back strongly in the latter half and fetched some crucial points to reduce the margin.

In the semifinals on Thursday, Indian men registered a convincing win over Japan. India did not let Japan score much in the game with the final score read as 52-17.

Earlier in the day, the Indian women fashioned a comprehensive 28-14 victory over Thailand to clinch the inaugural women's kabaddi gold of the Asian Games.

The Indian women led 17-7 at half-time after Thailand failed to secure a single lona against India's two. The Indian women team also got a couple of bonus points in the opening half.

The second half followed a similar script and India once again dominated by securing a couple of lonas and getting 20 outs to emerge triumphant.

Bangladesh clinch historic gold, break Afghan hearts

GUANGZHOU: Bangladesh cricketers won their nation's first ever Asian Games gold medal by ending Afghanistan's dream run in the inaugural final on Friday.

Mohammad Ashraful's men ensured their place in history with a five-wicket victory in a thrilling Twenty20 final in front of 2,000 excited spectators at the Guanggong cricket stadium.

The Afghan bravehearts, who had stunned Pakistan by 22 runs in Thursday's semifinal, fought till the end despite being restricted to 118-8 after they won the toss and elected to bat.

Bangladesh were reduced to 75-5 by the 16th over, before the sixth-wicket pair of Naeem Islam and Mohammad Shabbir put on an unbeaten 44-run partnership to secure a memorable win.

With 19 needed off 12 balls, the pair hammered 17 runs in the penultimate over bowled by off-spinner Karim Sadeq, including two towering sixes by Shabbir, to seal Afghanistan's fate.

Naeem returned unbeaten on 34 and Shabbir smashed 33 not out off 18 balls to clinch victory that will spark wild celebrations in the cricket-mad South Asian nation.

Afghanistan, a non-Test playing nation, took part in the World Twenty20 in the Caribbean this year and narrowly missed qualifying for the 2011 World Cup.

Naeem had earlier taken two wickets for eight runs from three overs to keep Afghanistan down to a modest total.

Afghanistan were 66-6 by the 13th over, before Mohammad Asghar revived their chances with an unbeaten 38 off 36 balls, sharing a crucial stand of 44 for the seventh wicket with Shabbir Ahmed (25).

Asghar boosted the total with 16 runs in the 17th over bowled by Nazmul Hossain that included a massive six over the straightfield.

Pakistan, meanwhile, clinched the bronze medal with an emphatic six-wicket win over Sri Lanka.

Skipper Khalid Latif led Pakistan's charge with an unbeaten 53 off 42 balls which helped his team overtake Sri Lanka's 135 all out with two overs to spare.

Latif, whose five one-day internationals made him the only capped player in his young team, hit four sixes, three of them in one over from leg-spinner Malinga Bandara.

Bilawal Bhatti returned unbeaten on a quickfire 24 off 14 balls that included the winning hit for a six off Nuwan Zoysa.

"It was important to stay at the wicket till the end, something I could not do against Afghanistan, but managed it today against a top side like Sri Lanka," said Latif.

"Of course we would have wanted to win the gold medal, but at least we will go home with a bronze."

Sri Lankan captain Jehan Mubarak dismissed suggestions his team, with 11 international players in their ranks, took the tournament lightly.

"Not at all, we all wanted to win, but I think we did not adapt to the conditions quickly enough," he said.

"One of best-ever" Asian Games coming to a close


GUANGZHOU, China (AP) Just five gold medals to be presented Saturday provided a rather slow-paced denouement for the Asian Games, an event the Olympic Council of Asia president referred to as "one of the best ever." While Zhou Chunxiu won the women's marathon, giving China its 198th gold medal of the games, and Myanmar took the men's doubles final in the sport of sepak takraw, giving the country its first, OCA chief Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah told a closing news conference that even a military conflict on the Korean peninsula during the games could not damage the event's image.

Al-Sabah said Korean athletes "stood shoulder-to-shoulder to compete" despite North and South Korea waging a military skirmish last Tuesday.

Vijender to be India's flagbearer in closing ceremony



Guangzhou, Nov 27 (PTI) World number one boxer Vijender Singh, who braved a dislocated thumb to clinch a gold medal at the Asian Games, will be India's flagbearer at the closing ceremony of the mega-event here today.

Olympic and World Championships bronze-medallist Vijender defeated two-time world champion Abbos Atoev in the middleweight (75kg) finals to fetch a gold.

The 25-year-old has a plaster on his injured hand right now but national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu said he would still have no trouble lifting the flag at the ceremony this evening.

Spectacular fireworks bring curtains down on Asiad

Guangzhou, Nov 27 (PTI) The skies lit up with dazzling fireworks as an emotional China brought the curtains down on the biggest Asian Games in a riot of colour, foot-tapping music and a cultural extravaganza at the Haixinsha Island on the Pearl River here today.

If the opening ceremony held at the same riverside venue on November 12th was high on technical wizardry, the closing was a heart-touching display of warmth by the people of this South China city whose infrastructure has improved remendously as a result of hosting the Games which saw India record their best-ever medal haul till date.

India finished sixth on the medal rostrum with a record 14 gold, 17 silver and 33 bronze for an overall tally of 64, eclipsing their earlier record of 57 medals in the 1982 Asian Games in Delhi.
