Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's LIVE coverage of the practice Kabaddi match between India and South Korea!
...
We are just one day away from the Kabaddi Masters to commence. India will be taking on Pakistan on June 22. However, a practice match was organized for the Indian team before the tournament commences in Dubai.

The Indians have a really strong contingent and the practice match against South Korea will serve them really well, not only to analyze the opposition but also to see if there are any tactical changes to be made in the final squad.

The six-nation tournament is highly anticipated and it would be interesting to see how India fares in this 10-minute practice match against the strong South Korean team.

The Indian side features quality raiders in Rahul Chaudhari, Pardeep Narwal, Rohit Kumar, Rishank Devadiga, Monu Goyat, and not to forget the 'Flying raider' Ajay Thakur, who is also the captain. Deepak Hooda, Manjeet Chhillar, Surender Nada, and Girish Ernak are also extremely capable players and will be seen giving it their all to fight for India's glory.

South Korea, on the other hand are banking on their star raider, Dong Geon Lee, who is not unknown to the Indian fans thanks to his exploits at the Pro Kabaddi League.

Besides India and South Korea, the tournament will see Iran, Pakistan, Kenya, and Argentina.
