HIL match timings advanced due to Pro Kabaddi

first_imgMumbai, Jan 28 (PTI) Hockey maybe Indias national game and procurer of eight of the countrys total haul of nine gold medals in the Olympic Games thus far, but it seems the stick and ball sport has taken a back seat in popularity charts as compared to the rustic rural game of kabaddi. “The timing of our matches has been advanced to 5:50pm daily so that it does not clash with the start time of the broadcast of Pro Kabaddi League matches,” informed a source connected with the Dabang Mumbai HIL franchise team today. The hockey league games were normally scheduled to commence at 7 pm. But with the new Pro Kabaddi season set to kick off in two days time, the national sport has taken a back seat in terms of the telecast schedule set out by the events broadcasters. Both the events are telecast on Star Sports network. PTI SSR NRB AT ATlast_img read more
