The Kabaddi Masters Dubai 2018 - The 5 foreign players to look out for
All the six nation teams are gearing-up for the Kabaddi Masters Dubai 2018. Scheduled to start from 22nd June at the Al Wasl Sports Club in Dubai featuring teams from India, Pakistan, Argentina, Iran, Republic of South Korea and Kenya.
Team India has the strongest attacking as well as the defensive side, but if you talk about Iran the veterans like Fazel Atrachhali, Abozar Meghani & Meraj Sheykh are missing. May be the Iranian federation wanted to give proper rest to their main players for Asian games 2018.
Kenya in group A with India and Pakistan is a newcomer wherein Argentina in group B with Korea and Iran is a newcomer. Championship may be tough for the newcomers or we may see the emergence of new talents.
