A look at players who did not perform as per expectations in Pro Kabaddi 4

Things are hardly surprising, for fans or experts, when star players deliver with great performances. Simply because they are always expected to compete and excel at the highest level. However, sometimes things don’t work out, maybe due to lack of team chemistry or purely the individual himself. Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4, which is heading towards its business end, saw some exceptional performances but there were some big names that did not live up to expectations. Here are five big players who could replicate the brilliance from past seasons in Pro Kabaddi 4.

1. Vishal Mane (Bengal Warriors)

Vishal Mane
Vishal Mane (L) was a big let down for Bengal Warriors

When Vishal Mane left U Mumba for Bengal Warriors, it seemed like a big loss for the former and profit for the latter. Given how crucial a role he played for U Mumba, Mane was expected to lift the Bengal Warriors side to the next level. Unfortunately, Mane was not able to justify his move and failed to deliver as right cover. To put it simply, he could not manag to read the game and opposition raiders got the better of him on numerous occasions.

The thirty-one-year-old was quite loose with his tackles, which he managed on 28 in Pro Kabaddi Season 4. On several occasions, he was extremely petulant in his approach, thereby gifting points to the opposition. The timing of his blocks were not the best either. As a result of all this, he ended up conceding cheap points to the opposition and raiders who found it arduous to unlock Mane previously, thoroughly enjoyed their outing this time around.
