That's it from this game between India and Kenya! Tune into Sportskeeda tomorrow as the action continues with South Korea taking on Argentina in a dead rubber followed by the all-important Pakistan v Kenya encounter later in the day. 

Thanks for joining us for the live coverage of this exciting match, stay tuned to Sportskeeda for live updates from the Kabaddi Masters Dubai 2018 and more! Ciao!
...
India will now go into the semifinals against South Korea with a lot of confidence from the group stages while Pakistan and Kenya will battle it out for the second spot from Group 'A' tomorrow. 
...
India win 50-15!! 

Another complete performance from the World Champions, as they have finished with four wins from four group stage matches. Meanwhile, Kenya are now all but out of the tournament and will need a herculean effort to sneak into the semifinals. 
...
SUPER RAID for India and guess who it is! Surjeet Singh! 

What an effort from Surjeet as he picks up three points on the buzzer raid! Wriggles away from the ankle hold by the left corner, then sneaks through a dash from the rest of the defence to end the game on a high for the Men in Blue!
...
Just a minute to go as India lead 47-15!
...
Oops! An error from Rahul Chaudhari as he steps out of the court during Obiero's raid and Kenyan have an easy point there. 
...
Oh, wait! Some confusion as the bonus point has actually not been granted and India have challenged the decision. 

Review successful and Rahul has picked up the bonus point. Clincal execution of the bonus and the action continues. 
...
Rahul Chaudhari picks up a bonus point on the Do or Die raid! 
...
Back live now!
...
Time-out called. 

India lead 46-14 with little more than 3 minutes to go on the clock. 
...
Patrick Nzau strikes on the Do or Die raid as he stretches and powers through Surender Nada's ankle hold. He's now picked two points from two raids now. 
...
And now, Surender Nada is raiding for India. Pretty much sums up the dismal performance from Kenya. 
...
Wow! Surjeet now shows his raiding skill as he picks a point through a hefty touch on the left corner defender. 
...
The Kenyan raider steps into the lobbies without a touch, too much momentum on that occasion and gifts a point to India. 
...
India now down to just two men on the mat. 
...
SUPER RAID for Kenya! First one for a Kenyan and the man in focus is Victor Obiero! 

Gets a touch on Rahul Chaudhari and then twists through a dash from Deepak Hooda and an ankle hold from Raju Lal Choudhary to convert it into a super raid! Stellar effort!
...
Patrick Nzau picks up a bonus point on the Do or Die raid! 
...
Rahul Chaudhari's pace piles the pressure on the Kenya defence as the right corner defender slips and falls into the lobbies. 
...
Kenya's defending has been extremely haphazard in this game, highlighted by the bonus point picked by Pardeep Narwal on that occasion. 

The right corner and cover defenders just moved back and let Pardeep jump in and out, an easy gift in the end. 
...
Meanwhile, Deepak Hooda picks up an easy bonus point. He had acres to work for the bonus point, poor defending from Kenya. 
...
Victor Obiero picks a bonus point and wards off a strong dash from Mohit Chhillar to pick up two points!
...
Finally, first point of the second half for Kenya through Njoroge, who picks a point with a touch on Surjeet Singh. 
...
Deepak Hooda picks up a brace! 

The right cover defender is the culprit, goes in for the advance ankle hold, Deepak Hooda wriggles away and also benefits from an unecessary tackle by the right corner defender. 
...
Bonus point now awarded to the Indian team as the coach calls for a time-out. 

India comfortably lead 38-5. 
...
Extraordinary from Surender Nada! The raider looked to be contempt with an empty raid but Surender Nada had other ideas, his trademark ankle hold kept the raider trapped in the Indian half. 
...
THIRD ALL-OUT on Kenya!

Wow! What skill from Rahul Chaudhari! There were just two defenders left on the mat, Rahul ran in and teasingly cornered them to the right side of the mat and then outstretched both his hands to get both of them and inflict an all-out. 
...
Deepak Hooda picks his first point of the night with a running hand touch. Wonder what the defender was doing on that occasion, maybe was caught napping. 
...
REVIEW UNSUCCESSFUL! No bonus point given, Obiero runs away to the benches. 
...
Victor Obiero has been sent out on the Do or Die raid, since he has not picked a point. 

Oh, wait! Kenya have reviewed the decision. Obiero thinks he has picked a bonus. 
...
Rahul picks a point now! An extremely poor advance tackle from Izaac Njoroge, Rahul waits, gets a touch and runs away to the mid-line. Reminiscence of the famous Zidane headbutt? Probably. 
...
Empty raids to start the second half for both teams. 
...
The second half has commenced! 

Raju Lal Choudhary and Deepak Niwas Hooda have been substituted in for the second half. 
...
As expected, India have come out all guns blazing and have put up another masterclass, one that has completely left the Kenyans clueless, as they stare down the barrel of defeat with a huge 24-point lead only gaining on them over time. 

Can the Mosambayi-led men find a little spark to regain lost ground or will India pile on the misery? Stay tuned for an exciting second half!
...
Pardeep Narwal's empty raid is followed by the referee's whiste as the first half has come to a close! 

India comfortable placed in the driver's seat as they lead 29-5 as they go into the break. 
...
Mohit Chhillar continues his purple patch, puts in a colossal block to stop Chrispine Otieno in his tracks. What a game he has had so far!
...
A point each for Kenya and India through the raiders. Victor Obiero first got a touch on Ajay Thakur and then Pardeep Narwal adds another to his tally. 
...
Well, well! Manjeet Chhillar has entered the court for the first time in this competition. Comes in place of Girish Ernak!
...
David Mosambayi's attempted ankle hold goes in vain as Rahul Chaudhari jumps and twists over the ankle hold to pick a bonus and a touch point. 
...
Pardeep Narwal now picks up a comfortable bonus point. 
...
No luck for Victor Obiero as he succumbs to the Indian defense's might, SECOND ALL-OUT inflicted on Kenya!
...
Rahul Chaudhari now gets another point as Kenyan are down to just the one man on the mat. 
...
Have you seen a better chemistry than that between Mohit Chhillar and Surender Nada? Probably not. 

Mosambayi goes a little too deep, a look is all it took as the duo swoop in and throw Mosambayi on the court. 
...
Schoolboy error from Esau Otieno, who steps out of the court on Rahul's raid to gift-wrap an easy point for India. 
...
Rahul Chaudhari displays some top skill as he stretches fully to get a running hand touch on Chrispine Otieno, who was stationed at the right corner position. 
...
Do or die raid for Izaac Njoroge! The pressure tells on the Kenyan raider as he steps out of bounds without a touch point. 


...
Rahul Chaudhari opens his account with a bonus point! 
...
Chrispine Otieno's ankle hold is too strong for Pardeep Narwal, who fails on the Do or Die raid! 

Pardeep goes in deep towards the right corner, Otieno waits and pounces on Pardeep's ankles to bring him down. 
...
India have raced away to a dominating 15-3 lead with under 10 minutes to go in the first half. 
...
Victor Obiero claims a running hand touch on Surjeet Singh on the Do or Die raid! Point granted, Surjeet is not a happy man. 
...
Substitution for India! 

Rahul Chaudhari comes in for Rishank Devadiga.
