Mumbai: Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli opened the Mumbai leg of Pro Kabaddi Season 7 at the NSCI in Worli on July 27. The number one ranked Test batsman also sang the national anthem to start the leg between U Mumba and Puneri Paltan.

The seventh season of the current Pro Kabaddi shifted to Mumbai on Saturday and Kohli was invited as a special guest for the Maharashtra derby match. After opening the leg, Kohli was spotted among the crowd, enjoying the highly tense match.

 

Speaking on the lines of Pro Kabaddi League, Kohli said, “Kabaddi has taken a leap in the sports culture in our country since the inception of Pro Kabaddi League. Seeing a sport that we all have played as kids get to this stature today gives a different feeling altogether, especially when you know that the Indian kabaddi team is one of the best ones in the world.”

Lastly, Kohli added, “Then seeing how players from all over the globe come to India to be a part of the PKL shows that the level of the sport has been escalated exponentially. The reason kabaddi has become a world recognised sport is due to the fitness and determination of Indian kabaddi players.”

 

Before the match got started, Kohli tweeted about his appearance at the Pro Kabaddi match.

After Virat sang the national anthem, his fans totally went crazy as they tweeted about his wonderful voice.
