England will take on Australia in the ninth match of the 2016 Kabaddi World Cup at the Arena by TransStadia in Ahmedabad, Gujarat on Monday (10 October). The two sides are pitted in Pool A and will play against each other in their second match of the tournament.

England and Australia suffered defeats in the first match of the world cup and have a chance to bounce back on Monday.

Bangladesh registered a crushing victory over the English side as the final scoreline was 52-15 in the Asian nation's favour. England will be looking to put this defeat behind them when they face their second opponent in Ahmedabad.

Australia, on the other hand also suffered a humiliating defeat against India. The defending champions were looking to bounce back following their defeat to South Korea and Campbell Brown's side.

Having the likes of South Korea, India and Bangladesh, it will be a tough task for either England or Australia to make it to the next round of the tournament.
