Five players to watch out for on Day 2 of Pro Kabaddi League Season 5 playoffs
With the second day of the playoffs set to get underway, we take a look at some of the players to watch out for.
The focus shifts to the second day of the playoffs in PKL season 5. If the eliminators played on the first day were any indications to go by, then the fans are in for a treat. Table toppers in their respective zones, Gujarat Fortunegiants will take on the Bengal Warriors in Qualifier 1 where the winner goes into the finals while the loser will have another shot at qualifying as they get a chance to lock horns with the winner of Eliminator 3 where Puneri Paltan will face defending champions Patna Pirates. In this let us have a look at the top 5 players who have the quality to take their teams into the finals.
#5 Sunil Kumar (Gujarat Fortunegiants)
While all the eyes were glued to the Iranian pair of Fazal Atrachali and Abozar Mighani, the 20-year-old Sunil Kumar has quietly built a reputation of performing big in crunch situations. With 52 tackle points the former Patna Pirates' defender has been in splendid form throughout the season in his right cover position.
Alongside Parvesh Bhainswal he has provided the much needed support to both the corners and helped his team finish on top in their zone. Coach Manpreet Singh will be hoping that his protege slots in and delivers another match winning performances from right cover and take down the threat of Maninder Singh.
