#5 Shabeer Bappu
U Mumba's Season 2 title win was an epic turnaround of an event which was scripted by Shabeer Bappu's heroic 3-pointer super raid which came in around the 36th minute of the match. That super raid with him taking a stroll around the court touching all defenders assured U Mumba's first ever title in the Pro Kabaddi League.
Shabeer Bappu has always been a valuable asset to the team as a supporting raider. Bappu has 160 raid points in 42 matches played with U Mumba with an average of 3.81 raid points. Alongside with U Mumba, Shabeer Bappu has the most appearances in finals in Pro Kabaddi history.
He was with the Pink Panthers in Season 4 and came back with U Mumba in Season 5 where he couldn't play many matches due to his injury. He will be a part of Dabang Delhi K.C. in Season 6.
