Game Time: Sushil Kumar, Aishwarya Pissay and Sports Awards

In this episode of Game Time, Daksh and Gaurav look back at this week’s biggest sports stories. First, they talk about wrestler Sushil Kumar, who sealed his berth in the India squad for the World Championship after defeating national champion Jitender Kumar in the final (and eventful) bout at the trials of the 74 kg category. Gaurav, who was at the event, shares what the room was like in moments such as when Sushil’s thumb entered Jitender’s eye. Next, they talk about Aishwarya Pissay, who is the ‘first Indian ever to win motorsport world title’ but who, it turns out, actually finished last in 3 out of 4 races that she took part in. And finally, with the awards season on, they discuss who all have won this year and who all should have won.
