PKL: Top 5 kabaddi players who emerged in 2017
There are some things that don't change. Rahul Chaudhari and Pardeep Narwal continued to light up the kabaddi world in 2017. Fazel Atrachali continued with his hard-hitting tackles.
But 2017 also saw a host of new players making their mark. Amidst the hectic competition, these players set themselves apart from the chasing pack with consistent, impressive and most importantly, match-winning performances. Sportskeeda looks at 5 kabaddi players who emerged in 2017.
#5 Monu Goyat
With Pardeep Narwal firing on all cylinders for Patna Pirates, not many would have imagined there was room for another raider to impress in the team. But Monu Goyat was vital in Patna's title-winning season this year.
With 191 raid points to his name, he finished as the fourth most successful raider in the league and aided Narwal when the going got tough. Monu also had a massive nine super 10's to his name, a testament to his consistency during the year that went by. Goyat was smart and made timely impacts, every time he went to raid for Patna. We're expecting bigger and better things from him in 2018.
