Super Kabbadi League is set to start on the 2nd of May and the final will be played on the 10th. The opening ceremony will take place a day earlier, on the 1st of May. Players from Sri Lanka, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Malaysia, Japan, Bangladesh, and Kenya have put their names in the draft.
It is a fantastic initiative and kudos to Telenor for taking up the title sponsorship. Kabbadi is an extremely popular sport especially in rural areas and such events give an opportunity for a larger audience to see the performers in action. It will encourage more youngster to take up the sports. It will also help lessen the rural-urban divide, which is crucial for our growth as a country.
