Pro Kabaddi 2019 India 7 Vs World 7 : In build up to the seventh season of PKL, an PKL All-Star fixture to be held for the first time ever on Saturday
Looking to make this the most enthralling season of Pro Kabaddi League, Mashal Sports and official broadcasters Star Sports have decided to pull out all the stops. In the build-up to the seventh season of India’s frontier kabaddi tournament, the two parties have announced that a PKL All-Star match will be held on Saturday.
Making a foray into the land of Pro Kabaddi League for the first time, the encounter has been slated for a week before the commencement of the 2019 edition of the showpiece tournament. The PKL All-Star encounter will be contested between Indian 7 and World 7 on 13th June at 7:30pm.
The idea behind the conceptualization of the encounter will see Indian 7 be composed of world class Indian players partaking in the league while World 7 will be formed by the international star performers. The 2019 auction of PKL had seen names from 13 countries put their name in the foray for a spot at being bought by the 12 franchisees, making this one of the most widely represented season of the league.
“ ‘Indian 7’ will be led by Ajay Thakur and the outfit will be coached by Balwan Singh. The ‘World 7’ team will be captained by Iranian kabaddi player Fazel Atrachali”, said Mashal Sports and Star Sports announcing the details of the match.
The first of a kind encounter ever since the advent of the league will see two extremely strong outfits square off against each other to get the country ready for the impending Pro Kabaddi Season 7. The World 7 side has some of the most stalwart names in the fraternity with all-rounders Mohammad Esmaeil Nabibakhsh, Meraj Sheykh and corner defender Abozar Mighani in the squad. The raiding facet will be held fort by the deadly partnership of Jang Kun Lee and Kenya’s Victor Obiero.
Elsewhere, the Indian 7 unit matches World 7 in all the three departments of the game with an exceptional raiding department seeing this season’s costliest player Siddharth Desai being paired alongside last season’s top scorer Pawan Kumar Sehrawat. Alongside them, raiders Ajay Thakur and Rahul Chaudhari are among the four confirmed names of the side to make for a meticulous raiding segment.
The seventh season of the Pro Kabaddi League will take place from 20th July with the first match of the day beginning at 7:30pm while the second fixture will take place at 8:30pm. The three month long tournament will see 12 teams clashing heads against each other over 12 legs with each leg spread across the home city of each side. Bengaluru Bulls had won the 2018 edition of the tournament after defeating Gujarat Fortunegiants, 38-33 in the summit clash.
