7:00 pm: Khel Kabaddi Khiladi:
The Titans talisman was having a hard time before giving up captaincy brought him back to his devastating best. He is presently on a Super 10 spree and will aim to bow out with a hero’s display.
The Warriors skipper has fulfilled his captaincy duties perfectly this season and is definitely a mastermind on the mat. If he can be taken out of the equation, the Titans can break Bengal’s foundation. With his solid dashes and powerful blocks, Surjeet is a man every attack needs to be wary of.
