For all the 21st century 'liberals' who still turn up their noses at the idea of women in sports, here's a little wake-up call. The grit and ruggedness constituting Kabaddi may have once been thought beyond the calibre of women, but it is now going to be redefined by women determined to dance only to their own rhythm.

After hosting three seasons of Men's Kabaddi, Star Sports Pro Kabaddi has returned to our TV screens with the first ever Women's Kabaddi Challenge. Comprising three teams - Fire Birds, Ice Divas and Storm Queens - the challenge will set the stage for women gearing up to #CrossTheLine and claim what was thought as the man's field as their own.
