So Iran will now face South Korea in the men's kabaddi finals of the 2018 Asian Games. 

That's all from the high-voltage clash between India and Iran. Until next time, this is Prasen Moudgal signing off! 

Stay tuned to Sportskeeda from all the live updates and more from the Asian Games!
...
The Men in Blue are in tears, in disbelief. 

What was to be a gold medal will now only be a dream that was shattered by an Iran team, which has managed to achieve, if I am allowed to call it, 'The Impossible'. 
...
The Indian men's Kabaddi team crashes out of the 2018 Asian Games. 

Take a moment, let this sink in. The Iranians have come out all guns blazing and are dancing on the court as they celebrate this massive win. The players have their families around them as the Iranian women's team too, join the celebrations. 

This is one of the biggest moments in India's Asian Games history. Iran has managed to open up a new chapter in the history of Kabaddi. 
...
It's all over! The Indian dream run has come to a resounding halt in the Asian Games 2018! Iran win 27 - 18!

For the first ever time in the history of the Asian Games, the Indian Men's Kabaddi team will not be participating in the Kabaddi finals, let alone win a gold medal. 
...
Rahul Chaudhari comes in for the buzzer raid. Nothing from that. 
...
Iran lead 27 - 17 with just a minute left to play. 
...
However, he has been pinned down on the next raid! Fazel Athrachali goes in with a double thigh hold and it was all over for Rishank. 
...
Rishank Devadiga manages to pick two points as he struggles away from an ankle hold. 
...
Two minutes left on the clock. 

Dejected faces all over the Indian camp, who are all in disbelief. 
...
There's no stopping the Iranians here. Pardeep Narwal is the bunny again, as Abozar Mighani just lazily puts in an ankle hold to pin him down. 

Iran leads 26 - 14. 
...
Iran leads 25 - 15 with just three minutes left on the clock. 
...
Ajay Thakur does come in, but he has been pinned down in just a matter of seconds. The Indians look all out of steam. 
...
ALL-OUT inflicted on India! Is this the game? 

Nabibaksh gets a touch on Mohit Chhillar, Girish Ernak comes in with the dash but it is too late in the end. 
...
Rahul Chaudhari has been pinned down on the court! Fazel comes in with a sweeping ankle hold, swivels on his back and pins the lanky raider down. 

India now down to just two men on the mat. 
...
Five minutes left on the clock folks. 
...
Fazel Athrachali slams his chest with a huge grin as he throws Rishank Devadiga off the court! India in deep, deep trouble here. 

Iran leads 19 - 14. 
...
Yet again, the tension soar up as Nabibakhsh claims a toe touch on Deepak Hooda and claims it and he has been granted the point. 
...
This is just sheer madness! Rahul and Abozar at each other's necks as the raider claims a touch on Abozar, who goes against him as he swears repeatedly on the mat! 

Rahul granted the point and Abozar storms off the court. 
...
Monu Goyat continues to have a bad game. Goes in too deep into the left corner and it was all too easy for Fazel Athrachali to pounce. 

Iran leads 17 - 13. 
...
Rahul Chaudhari strikes, but in defense! Goes in with a strong ankle hold and pins the raider down. 
...
It seems as if Ajay Thakur is seriously injured and might not take further part in this match, sitting on the sidelines with his eye heavily bandaged. 

That said, Kabaddi is all about passion and playing for the country and being the captain of the team, we might just see him get back on the court. 
...
Well then, Rahul Chaudhari is on the mat and has gone in to raid!
...
Time-out called for by Iran. 

A little more than ten minutes left on the clock and the Indians need to pull up their socks to make a move for victory. 
...
The Iranian defense continues to accumulate points as Fazel gets the better of Pardeep Narwal on this occasion. 

Iran leads 16 - 12. 
...
This time, the Iranians get the point! 

Yet again, Girish Ernak is in question as Mohammad Maghsoudlou claims a toe touch but Girish is not amused. Tension all over as the Iranian is granted the point.
