The Australian national team was yesterday thrown out of the kabaddi "World Cup" in India after failing multiple drugs tests as the tournament struggles to overcome a series of doping scandals.

The event, being held in the northern state of Punjab, has brought 14 teams together from across the world to play the popular and highly physical South Asian game. So far, 29 players have tested positive for banned substances since it began on November 1.

Five Australians failed dope tests and two others refused to give urine samples, leaving the country unable to field a team for their match against Afghanistan yesterday.
