I am happy with PKL being played twice a year, helps popularize the game: Screwvala

THE PRO KABADDI LEAGUE (PKL) has been extremely successful in generating tremendous interest and fan flowing for the sport in our country. The league has also encouraged and supported the Kabaddi players in every way possible. 

Such has been the success of the PKL, many youngsters in India are talking about the sport and the television ratings too have gone up for the event. Now, Ronnie Screwvala, owner of Pro Kabaddi League franchise U Mumba, says that it is the right way to promote the game. 

As reported by PTI, Screwvala said, 

"Kabaddi cannot become popular if we have a six-week event and then a break of 11 months. Now it's being held for six weeks with a gap of six months. I am happy with the development.” 

Team U Mumba skipper Anup Kumar too expressed his views on the same. 

"All I said was that kabaddi is a game in which injuries happen and the prospects increase (if it's held twice in a year). But having two seasons (in one year) is good for the game.” 

Currently, the PKL is in its closing stages, and the semis will be held in Delhi on March 4 and the final on March 5.
