As Babita Kumari done her approach to a wrestling mat, her elder sister and teammate Geeta Phogat had a grave demeanour on her face. Even as a 3000 spectators let out a shrill hearten for Babita, there was no change in a Geeta’s expression. 46 seconds later, it went blank, both for Geeta and Babita. That was a time Sofia Mattsson took to pin down Babita in their 53kg hitch during a Pro Wrestling League tie between Haryana Hammers and UP Dangal. Sofia, representing a former team, done small work of a UP group wrestler and dumbfounded an roughly packaged KD Jadhav stadium.
Babita’s hitch opposite Mattsson was a must-win for UP as they were trailing 3-2 in a best-of-seven competition and had their wrestler won, they would have leveled a score. But that never happened. It never looked like happening.

Before a start of a league, Babita had been bustling in compelling and screening of Dangal, a biopic on a life of her father and manager Mahavir Phogat, in that her impression alongwith Geeta’s have been shown as leads.
“Now that a film has been made, we feel additional vigour to infer myself and make certain that we live adult to a expectations of a fans. we am all set to combat on a pad now,” Babita had pronounced final week.
But that was distant from reality. After her initial turn detriment during a Rio Olympics in Aug final year, Babita motionless to skip a comparison nationals that were reason in dual months behind in October. It positively influenced her compare aptness as she looked heedful on a pad opposite Mattsson and even after removing out of her reason once, her competition was means to pin her.
The fans had also collected to see India’s initial womanlike wrestlers in Olympics Geeta on a pad though her blocked a category, a condition in a joining format where one weight difficulty is blocked by possibly teams. The fans cheered each time she was shown on a large shade though after Babita’s match, many fans had a same grave demeanour as a Phogat sisters.
