Several Pro Kabaddi stars were left out of the Indian team

The 2016 Kabaddi World Cup, which begins on October 7th, will showcase some of India’s greatest Kabaddi talents. The fans will have the chance to see some of the best Kabaddi players in the country play together after having traded blows in the Pro Kabaddi League.

But sadly, there are some players who will not feature in the upcoming tournament. Sportskeeda looks at 5 such players who were not selected for Kabaddi World Cup 2016 despite performing well in Pro Kabaddi Season 4.

#5 Amit Hooda

Amit Hooda (R) was one of the top defenders in Pro Kabaddi 4

The 20-year-old was arguably the best defender in the recently concluded Pro Kabaddi League. With 47 tackles to his name, he finished at the top of the leader board. Thrust into the Jaipur Pink Panthers side, Amit showed the world why he has every chance of being India’s next big thing.

With a hawk like vision, Hooda has the uncanny ability to dive into a tackle before a raider can sense it. He’s also blessed with agility and pace – a potent combination for any defender to have.

The right corner could have easily slotted himself into India’s first seven based on his current form.
