Thanks sameer. I had predicted it a few years ago, but hadn't followed kabaddi to know that we have already started losing to them. Crap! Damn Iran :)

India also beat Kazakhstan 100-90 to make the QF.
I watched highlights of the India-China match, and the notable feature was the selfless passing, especially as they approached the basket (wish the hockey team could learn from them!). Talwinderjit seems a real star.

And, of course...

Basketball: India crushed by Iran 47-77 in quarter-final of FIBA Asia Challenge

Was there a doubt? It's Iran we are talking about, after all! I mean, really, it's amazing what a hopeless feeling I get when I see "Iran vs India".

In the classification matches, we lost to Japan 66-77 but than beat Taiwan 80-68 to finish 7th. Very good win against Taiwan whom we had lost to earlier in the tournament.

It does looks as though there is some improvement in our basketball standards.

In the final, Iran thrashed Korea 77-47. So, it does look as though they are way ahead of rest of the Asian teams.
