The Pro Kabaddi League has played host to some spectacular talents in the previous five seasons and this season has been no different with teams going in for varied strategies and in the process, unearthing new talents.

While local talent has been a spectacle to witness and in abundance, the contribution of the foreign stars to these teams has also been a major crowd-puller. With each team looking to make a mark in the league, the presence of foreign stars in some teams has made a huge difference to the outcomes of games this season.

Some of these foreign stars have had a huge impact on their respective teams and given their dexterity, the men have stamped their authority in the league. Here are five such foreign internationals who are at their best this season.

#5 Abolfazl Maghsoudlou

Standing at well above six feet in height, Abolfazl has made optimum use of his great height to procure easy raid points for Dabang Delhi.

The Iranian did not find a starting spot in the initial couple of matches but after consistent performances as a sub, the lanky raider found a place in the starting seven and has managed to get Delhi out of troubled waters on more than just one occasion.

In the eleven matches this season, Abolfazl has picked up 58 points with his quick hand touches and cunning extension of his arms and legs. Although Delhi has not managed to have the best of seasons, Abolfazl's good form has been a bright spark in the campaign.
