New Delhi: Indian star wrestler and two-time Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar got injured during his practice session on Friday (January 12). Sushil injured his knee during the practice session and now has been advised by the doctor to take two days rest.
Sushil is representing the Delhi Sultans in the third season Pro Wrestling League in the 74 kg category and would be replaced by Praveen next match. Parveen is a bronze medalist of Senior National Championship 2017.
Sushil was picked up at a whopping amount of Rs 55 lakh for the Delhi team, the highest amount ever in the history of Pro Wrestling League auctions, which was kick-started on January 9.
Recently, Sushil said that he wants to focus on his game, which will speak about his capabilities in a much better way.
“Players get very short time, in that case, they can decide whether to do politics or concentrate on their game,” Sushil told ANI when asked about the allegations made by wrestler Parveen Rana.
Earlier in December, wrestler Parveen Rana, had accused Sushil of cheating in the trail bout for 2018 Commonwealth Games and had said that he will take the revenge of his defeat in the next face-off with the Olympian.
“I played a good bout yesterday (against Sushil Kumar), but there was a lot of cheating there and due to that I was made to lose,” Rana had told ANI.
