sachin prathapMangaluru : The Central Kabaddi Association temporarily suspended Sachin Prathap, the talented kabaddi player selection for training which started on Friday.

He was selected for India’s probable 28-member squad, but his hopes have dashed after temporarily suspended.

Sachin Prathap from Paleppady in Ivarnadu village is a student of SDM College and has played over 50 state tournaments. He represented Karnataka in Senior National Kabaddi League held in Jaipur, Rajasthan a few days ago. In the tournament, his team lost in quarter finals, but he was named ‘Best Rider’ in two matches.

Based on his performance, he was selected for the Pro-Kabaddi league bidding. Trained by Krishnananda, his coach from SDM college, he is the only Karnataka player to be selected for the national probable team. “The first phase of online training, which was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, was completed a few days ago.

The National Amateur Association Delhi has responded and said my selection process is on hold temporarily,” Sachin told The New Sunday Express.Sources from the District Kabaddi Association have blamed infighting among state kabaddi associations for this decision.

“Sachin is a budding kabaddi player from the state and rural talents like him need to be supported. He had high hopes of playing for the country but it is disappointing to know that his selection process has been put on hold,” said ZP member S N Manmatha.

Manmatha said, “This decision could have been justified, had he failed to perform well in training. It is an injustice to a budding sportperson from a rural area,” he said Meanwhile, Youth Empowerment and Sports Minister C T Ravi assured to resolve the issue after holding talks with the National Kabaddi Association after Sachin met Belthangady MLA Harish Poonja in Bengalur.
