Virat Kohli becomes the co-owner of Bengaluru Yodhas in Pro Wrestling League

Bengaluru Yodhas, the JSW Group owned franchise in the Pro Wrestling League, has announced India's Test captain Virat Kohli as the co-owner of the team.

 The Pro Wrestling League, whose inaugural edition took place on 10 December in New Delhi's KD Jadhav stadium, pits six city-based franchises against one another in the wrestling tournament. Kohli's Bengaluru Yodhas faced Rohit Sharma's UP Warriors in their opening match.

 On the new venture, Kohli said, "I was thrilled on hearing about the Pro Wrestling League and JSW Bengaluru Yodhas. I am no stranger to the city of Bangalore and it is wonderful that I can extend my association by way of the Yodhas."

He added, "I am confident that the Yodhas will be a vital cog in the scheme of things. I am excited and cannot wait to follow all the action on the mat.”

 Parth Jindal, Director, JSW Sports, said, "Virat is currently one of the biggest names in Indian sport and one of Bengaluru's favourite athletes. We are delighted to welcome him on-board as a co-owner of the Yodhas. Virat's intensity and passion for sport has always been his hallmark and I am sure the same determination will be transferred to the Yodhas as we look forward to a successful first season in the Pro Wrestling League.” 

 The Bengaluru Yodhas are wrestler Narsingh Yadav. The team include Sandeep Tomar, Bajrang Punia, Ukraine's Pavlo Oliiynik and Georgia's Davit Modzmanashvili in the men's section. Five-time World Championship medallist Yuliya Ratkevich of Azerbaijan is the Yodhas' star in the women's draw. She is joined by USA's Alyssa Lampe, India's Lalita Sehrawat and Navjot Kaur.
