"Taking a serious note of the refusal by the players, the technical committee (of World Cup kabaddi) held a meeting and decided to impose ban on the US team for rest of the matches," a spokesman of the organising committee said.
Earlier, on Monday (Nov 14), the disciplinary action has been taken after the refusal of US team players to give urine samples to National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) officials in Hoshiarpur.

Tournament host country, India and Canada have already entered to the semi-final. Pakistan is also likely to reach the next round.
