#5 Naveen Kumar and Chandran Ranjith (Dabang Delhi)
In season 6, the duo wreaked havoc on the opposition teams as they scored a combined 325 raid points last season. This duo will continue their partnership in the upcoming season and they will hope to repeat their achievements from the previous season.
Both these players are young and although a lot of experience is not on their side, unpredictability and mobility on the mat could work to their advantage. A number of veterans of the game such as Meraj Sheykh, Ravinder Pahal, and Joginder Narwal would be present on the mat to guide these youngsters and hence, this duo could well do wonders in the upcoming season.
