Sports rivalry between India and Pakistan has always been a hot topic of discussion be it for Cricket, Hockey or our very own Kabbadi.
While unveiling the 14 Kabaddi players who would be representing India at the upcoming Kabaddi World Cup, former Cricketer Kapil Dev lost his cool when a scribe questioned about Pakistan’s absence from the tournament.
