The left corner defender is an experienced campaigner when it comes to the sport and has showcased his mettle whilst playing the role of a captain for the Haryana Steelers in the Pro Kabaddi League. Under him, the new entrants made the cut to the playoff's in their very first edition and the left corner defender led his team by example, finishing as the Best Defender in the fifth season.
