Obilo and Ogak star in Kenya win over Japan (48-27).



Kenya needing a win to remain in the fray for a semi-final berth did it in grand style by routing Japan 48-27 with the help of four all-outs. They won by a lead of 21 points (48-27) against Japan. As compared to the earlier game between Thailand and Kenya, this game had a more conservative approach but was more tactically engaging. Japan did not look like they were a team already qualified and without a couple of key players. They kept on piling the pressure on Kenya, who responded in great fashion through James Obilo and their defence. Kenya raced into a lead of nine points with just ten minutes remaining in the second half (26-17). Kenya finished fourth in the Kabaddi World Cup 2016 by defeating Japan at The Arena by TransStadia, Ahmedabad on Sunday.
