When it comes to sports, India is coming up a winner in the international arena in a variety of games and giving everyone reason to celebrate. The latest feather in our hat is the trophy at the 2018 Kabaddi Masters, Dubai. Read on to know how India scored this majestic win.

1. Establishing itself as World Champions yet again, the Indian team delivered it’s best as they defeated Pakistan and Kenya in the group stages, which was followed by an attack on the Republic of Korea and finally defeating Iran to take home the trophy. The whole of Dubai was witness to India’s dominance on the mat.

3. The team trained for three long months at Sonipat, a city dubbed as the Kabaddi capital of India. In an interview, coach Srinivas Reddy said, “The training camp was divided into stages which were modelled to improve the player’s fitness and develop their technique. The training modules were designed to ensure every facet of the players was monitored and developed properly.”

6. Leading India into victory was captain Ajay Thakur, who instilled an aggressive approach and picked up two Super 10s in the five matches he was featured in. Interestingly, he was a key player in the World Cup 2016 as well.

7. Another great asset to the India team was Monu Goyat, who was dubbed as the highest paid non-cricket athlete during the Pro Kabaddi Season 6, bought by Patna Pirates a whooping 1.51 crores. Goyat managed to secure a Super 10 and would always come to the need with Ajay Thakur whenever the chances looked bleak
