Pro Kabaddi League 2017 Season 5: Top 5 defenders from Haryana leg
The Haryana leg of the Pro Kabaddi League was by far the most interesting and surprising leg so far. Out of form teams like the Telugu Titans and the Bengaluru Bulls both registered shock victories over the Haryana Steelers and the Puneri Paltan respectively. Tamil Thalaivas, meanwhile, edged past U.P Yoddha in a nail biter.
These shocking results have once again thrown open the league and also breathed life into the race for the playoff spots. On that note, let's take a look at the best defenders from this week.
#1 Surender Nada
This was always going to be a challenging task for Surender as a defender. But captaincy responsibilities this time meant he had to ensure his team didn't crumble under the hectic schedule. With 13 tackle points in five matches, Haryana's captain led by example.
Nada was in fine form and looked at ease playing on home turf. A renewed passion was visible in his game play. He's no doubt keen to prove there's more to him than just ankle holds. Last minute dashes, blocks - we saw it all from Surender in the Haryana leg.
