...
India win 41-17 and have qualified for the semifinals of the Kabaddi Masters Dubai 2018! 

An absolute masterclass from the Indian team led by Monu Goyat, who came into the match in the second half and picked seven raid points, overshadowing strong performances from Ajay Thakur and Rishank Devadiga, both of who picked six raid points on the night. 

In the defence front, the faith retained on Girish Maruti Ernak paid off as the burly left corner defender notched up his first 'High 5' of this tournament and made life difficult for the opposition. 
...
A final raid point for Pakistan on the buzzer raid, just a consolation point in what has been a complete decimation at the hands of an extremely strong Indian setup. 
...
Monu Goyat looks for a bonus but gets more as Nasir Ali is Monu's bunny with a strong scorpion kick that sees the Services pick two points on the Do or Die raid!
...
Waqar Ali runs into the chain of Surjeet Singh and Deepak Hooda on the Do or Die raid! Pakistan continue to lose the plot. 
...
Meanwhile, India's left corner superstar Girish Maruti Ernak has notched up a 'High 5'!
...
THIRD ALL-OUT inflicted on Pakistan! 

Monu Goyat continues to make merry as he sneaks through the defense chain and inflicts more damage on the Pakistan setup. 
...
India strike immediately post the break! 

Girish Ernak comes in with a strong body block, Rishank covers it up with a back hold as India extend the lead. 
...
Time-out called in by the Indian coach with his wards comfortably in the lead. 

India lead 33-16 with just over four minutes to go. 
...
Monu Goyat picks up a brace! 

Goes in deep into the left corner, gets a touch on the right cover defender and also manages to power through the back hold from the left corner and tumbles away to safety!
...
Ajay Thakur comes in for the Do or Die raid with three Pakistan defenders left on the mat! 

SUPER TACKLE! Muhammad Nadeem stands tall and pushes Thakur backwards to collect a tackle point to his name. 
...
Monu Goyat has claimed a running hand touch but Pakistan have reviewed it. REVIEW SUCCESSFUL! 

No touch given to Monu on that occasion and Pakistan have made a good call. 
...
Surjeet Singh lives up to his name as he runs to the center of the court and blocks the raider's path as he gets support from the rest of the defense and gathers a point. 
...
Monu Goyat looks for an ankle hold, albeit a poor one and Muhammad Nadeem runs away from his grasp to collect a point. 
...
A poor dash from Nasir Ali as Rishank Devadiga turns away with ease and evades Ali to collect yet another point. 
...
Monu collects his second point from two raids, gets a running hand touch on the right corner! He's already made an impact with only two raids in the game. 
...
Girish Ernak comes to the party as he puts in an impressive ankle hold to stop Mudassar Ali in his tracks. 
...
Monu Goyat picks up a bonus point on his very first raid tonight!
...
Rishank Devadiga fails on the Do or Die raid! The pace during his raid does not work as a strong thigh hold brings him down on the mat. 
...
Muhammad Nadeem picks up a bonus point! Well, well! He did not cross the red line on that occasion but he's been granted the point! Lucky!
...
Substitution for India. 

Monu Goyat comes in place of Rohit Kumar. 
...
Sajjad miscalculates on the Do or Die raid! What a mistake from the talented raider! 

He comes running in to the half, manages to unsettle the defence but then runs into his own half with six seconds left on the clock. Since he did not collect a point, he has to go away to the benches. 
...
Wow! A majestic running hand touch from Ajay Thakur on Muhammad Imran and he calmly jogs away into the Indian half. 
...
Substitution from Pakistan. Nasir Ali and Sajjad Shauqat make their way to the mat. 
...
SECOND ALL-OUT inflicted on Pakistan! 

Ajay Thakur runs in, gets a hefty hand touch on one defender and then slides his fingers on the man running in from the right corner to pick two points and also affect the all-out. 
...
Ajay Thakur now powers through a dash from Mudassar Ali to pick up a point! Mudassar did well to wait and then go for the dash but the power was lacking which made it easy for Thakur in the end. 
...
Rishank Devadiga picks up a brace on the Do or Die raid!! 

Goes in deep into the right corner, lures a tackle from Wasim Sajjad and as he escapes from it, wriggles through the dash from the right cover defender to pick up two points. 
...
Mudassar Ali continues to have a good night! First picks up a bonus point and then collects a gift-wrapped point through Deepak Niwas Hooda's half-hearted dash. 
...
The second half has begun! Ajay Thakur to kickstart the proceedings. Pakistan have only four men on the mat. 
...
Pakistan have managed to collect most of their points through the defense front and will need to put in a much-improved performance to have a chance at clawing their way back into this contest. 

An exciting second half coming up! Stay tuned!
...
India lead 18-9 at half-time! 

A fine all-round performance on show yet again from India as the Pakistan men have not been able to find their bearings yet in the contest. Rohit Kumar has made the most of the start given to him and collected a super raid very early in the match that shifted all the momentum towards India. Girish Ernak has continued from where he left off last night and looks in fine touch. 
...
SUPER TACKLE for Pakistan! Two points, courtesy of Wasim Sajjad's defensive prowess as he brings down Rohit Kumar with a massive block in the center of the court. 
...
And now, Do or Die raid for Pakistan and Surjeet Singh gets the better of Muhammad Imran with a strong tackle on the mid-rib area! 
...
Rishank Devadiga claims a toe touch on the Do or Die raid! He's been granted the point and looks full of confidence today!
...
Whoops! Ajay Thakur slips during his raid but all's fine as he goes back with an empty raid. 
...
Nadeem comes in for the Do or Die raid and he's been stopped in his tracks by a strong ankle hold from Ajay Thakur! The skipper has contributed in the defense front in this tournament as well. 
...
Back live now. 


...
Oh, no! This looks bad for Pakistan. Seems like Nasir Ali has copped a serious blow on his abdomen in the previous raid and is wriggling in pain. 

Time-out called.
...
Rohit Kumar has been pinned down yet again! Goes for a kick on Nasir Ali and gets it but is too late to turn and has been brought down by the rest of the defense.
...
India now lead 15-6 with under five minutes to go in the first half. 
...
Ajay Thakur continues his good run, gets a firm running hand touch on Mudassar Ali! 
...
Muhammad Nadeem comes in for a Do or Die raid and has no answer to Girish Ernak's mighty dash! 

Turns his back just for a split second and Girish converts the chance into a point as he runs in from the left corner and pushes Nadeem off the court. 
...
Pakistan slowly making their way back into the contest! 

Rishank Devadiga now has to endure the same plight as Muhammad Imran's dash is too strong to get past. 
...
The Pakistan defense wakes up as Rohit Kumar has been thrown off the court on the Do or Die raid!

Tried to go in deep on the left corner as he attempted a touch on Nasir Ali but the rest of the defense senses the opportunity and put in a strong dash to rob Rohit of a point. 
...
Mudassar Ali picks up a bonus point. Only the fourth point for Pakistan tonight. 
...
DO OR DIE raid for Nissar and he runs into the mighty Indian defence! 

Girish Ernak comes running in from the left corner and puts in a colossal block, Nissar runs into his open arms and then rest of the defense unit swoops in. 
...
Substitution for Pakistan. 

Muhammad Nisar comes in for Kashif Razzaq. 
...
India have now raced away to a 12-3 lead with just less than 12 minutes to go in the half. 
...
FIRST ALL-OUT inflicted on Pakistan! 

Rohit Kumar goes in for the raid with just Nadeem left on the mat who plays around but has to succumb in the end.
