Pro Kabaddi League 2016: 5 best raiders to look out for in season 4
The Pro Kabaddi League is around the corner and it will be the first year which will see two seasons held in the same year. The excitement has reached fever pitch as teams were reshuffled post the third season of the league in the auctions. The fourth season promises lots of new stars and more breathtaking action. With not even two weeks left for the event, the time is perfect to take a look at 5 raiders who can light up the league with their performances
Here are the 5 raiders to look out for in the 4th edition of the tournament.
1. Anup Kumar
U Mumba has been the most consistent team in Pro Kabaddi League and why won’t they be when they have the most prolific raider leading them in the form of Anup Kumar. A sub-inspector with the Haryana Police posted at Rewari, Anup Kumar is one of the major reasons behind U Mumba’s spectacular feat of featuring in all the three finals of Pro Kabaddi League. While his calm and composed captaincy has attracted all the plaudits, his raids haven’t gone unnoticed for sure.
The 32-year-old has made 247 successful raids in the 42 matches and has rarely disappointed when the team looked up to him for some inspiration. A traditional raider who relies more on touch points, Anup was team’s most successful raider in the first two seasons of PKL. Apart from his exploits in the Pro Kabaddi League, Kumar is also a two-time Asian Games medalist and an Arjuna Awardee and easily the most decorated of the raiders and captains playing in Pro Kabaddi League’s 4th season.
