It is being reported that foreign kabaddi players are facing problems in coming to India. Bengaluru Bulls owner Uday Wala said that the players are facing problems in acquiring visa for India.
He said, “We are facing visa problem. We are waiting for the external affairs ministry to give visa permissions …. Let us say that if everything goes well inside one week or so, we will have them here.”
He further added, “Personally, I want them to be in India as early as possible. Then they can blend and bond with the team. Personally, I have hopes on Sino but then we need him to bond with us. Earlier he comes it is better for us.”
Wala added that despite such problems, there has not been any lack of excitement in the players as they have been practicing hard.
“Despite that (Visa problem), the foreign players have been training to our regimen already. Our coach and our physios have already briefed them of what they have to be doing individually there.”
The foreign players of Bengaluru Bulls are in constant touch with the franchisee, discussing their problems. Wala concluded:
“We have been talking to them regularly both on phone, email, skype so and so forth. Hopefully, when they land here we don’t have to push them into readiness.”
