Pro Kabaddi League Seson 5: Best Playing 7 from the Chennai Leg
The Chennai leg ended with the Tamil Thalaivas becoming the second team in PKL 5 to lose all their home matches after Dabang Delhi. Their poor form means they have now lost 13 matches, the most by any team in Zone B and are the only team in Zone B out of the contention for the play-offs.
Gujarat’s brilliant win over Patna means they have 3 defenders featuring in the starting 7. The Chennai leg features 2 of the best corners of PKL 5, best cover defender pairing of PKL 5, a raider performing miracles, and 2 superstar raiders leading by example.
Right Corner: Abozar Mighani
Right corner Abozar Mighani produced a superb display against defending champions Patna Pirates scoring a High 5 consigning Patna to their first inter zone defeat. It was Abozar’s 2nd High 5 of PKL 5. Abozar’s performance helped Gujarat tame PKL 5’s best raiding team. He became the fourth player to reach 50 tackle points in PKL 5, having scored 52 tackle points so far. The Iranian’s well-timed dives and ankle holds proved impossible for the raiders to escape.
