The programming line-up will begin with the journey of Kabbadi heroes, which will show Pardeep Narwal’s magical Dubkis, Naveen Kumar’s daring raids, Fazel Atrachali’s powerful tackles, Pawan Sehrawat’s hi-flying moments and Maninder Singh’s impeccable season that help Bengal Warrior’s to win their maiden Vivo Pro Kabaddi title.

Stars Sports will also make fans nostalgic with some of the best moments of the heroes of Vivo PKL seven. In addition, fans will also be able to catch some of Season seven’s most thrilling matches, as well as a show on current champions, Bengal Warriors.

Star Sports has also lined up the best matches from India’s victorious 2016 Kabaddi World Cup campaign titled ‘India’s road to Glory’. Kabaddi fans across the country have been reaching out on digital platforms ever since Star Sports began broadcasting the winning moments of the cricket world cup.
