India has secured its position in the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup semi finals by defeating England on Tuesday.
TransStadia arena was in for a treat as the raiders Pradeep Narwal and Ajay Thakur showed what they are made of by scoring 13 and 11 raid points respectively. India is now at the second position in the group A tally, South Korea being undefeated. On the other hand, England finished fourth in Group B, continuing its poor performance in the sport.
India started its campaign with a defeat from South Korea but came back in the tournament by winning all the matches against Australia, Argentina, Bangladesh and England.
The win over its former rulers triggered a sense of joy among Indians and Virender Sehwag could not control his wit and congratulated the Indian team in his own style.
You can consider it as a troll if you want you.
