New Zealand cricketers Trent Boult, Mitchell Santner, and Tom Latham were interested in kabaddi after seeing some highlights from the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) while in India for the ICC Cricket World Cup.
“It appears to be a nice physical game.” It appears to be similar to Rugby, with players working together to prevent one player from crossing the line. Glenn Phillips is my choice for this sport. “He’s a powerful pocket rocket,” wicketkeeper-batter Tom Latham stated when discussing the game, according to a PKL release.
Meanwhile, Trent Boult encouraged his teammates Daryl Mitchell and Tim Southee to try their hand at kabaddi, saying, “I’ve watched it a few of times. I believe the sport requires strong legs. I’d put Daryl Mitchell and Tim Southee’s names up for this game.”
Furthermore, all-rounder Mitchell Santner would want to see colleague Glenn Phillips play kabaddi, saying, “I probably have the squirminess for the sport, but not the strength.” Kabaddi requires agility and strength. Lockie Ferguson has the potential to be a good player. He has a strong core and large legs.”
The tenth season of the Pro Kabaddi League will begin on December 2, 2023, in Ahmedabad.
