PKL Auction 2019: 5 players who earned a bigger contract from last season
- Here are five players, who have earned a contract of over two and a half times their salary last season.
#4 Rohit Baliyan - (₹12 lakh to ₹35 lakh)
Turning out for U Mumba in season six of the Pro Kabaddi League, Rohit Baliyan played the supporting raider's role to fine effect for the team as he notched up 108 points from 19 matches and finished as the second-best raider behind Siddharth Desai.
With buckets of experience having played five seasons of the league, Rohit Baliyan added an extra dimension to U Mumba's offensive strategies and played a massive role in keeping the scoreboard ticking at times when even Siddharth Desai failed to have a good run on a particular day.
One of the most technically-sound raiders, Baliyan's ability to turn at pace and also produce the sudden kick on the defenders and catch them unaware is certain to come to the party as he will yet again turn out for U Mumba, albeit this time he could don the lead raider's role in the absence of Siddharth Desai.Published 09 Apr 2019, 08:30 IST
