The famous adage 'The best defense is a good offense' is something we have seen in full authority in Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2. Be it close encounters or one-sided affairs, the defenders were a vital asset for teams to pull off a victory in UKK Season 2 with their Dream Runs and massive active time on the mat.
So here we are, listing out those top three defenders who owned every inch and corner of the mat with their prowess and ultimately earned a spot in the Hall of Fame of Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2 for their defensive attributes.
Ramji Kashyap - 33:03 minutes
The record-breaker, the icon, the legend. Ramji Kashyap had all the opposition attackers dancing at his fingertips and at the tune of his movements on the mat. The Chennai Quick Guns star registered an active time of 33:03 on the mat while scripting 20 Dream Runs.
