As an anchor Emcee for Vivo Pro Kabaddi season 5 on Star Suvarna Plus I, Reena Dsouza got a brilliant exposure learning about the sport – Kabaddi and speaking on the same.
Kabaddi a high energy quick sport where in a fraction of few seconds the game can be changed.The team which is leading in the first half can be making no points in the second half or may be gets “All out” again and again.
As Kabaddi popularity is increasing we can get to see kids canting kabaddi while it was cricket all these years. These sports have definitely created the importance of understanding the sport and opening new career choices in sports for the youth. Today, the kabaddi stars Anup Kumar from Umumba, Rohit Kumar from Bengaluru Bulls, Rahul Chaudhuri from Telugu titans, Jasvir from Jaipur Pink Panthers, Pardeep Narwal from Patna Pirates, Manjeet Chhillar are on everyone’s minds.
