Pro Kabaddi League 2017 Season 5: Top 5 players to watch out for in the Super-Playoffs
The playoffs will commence on Monday at the Dome, NSCI in Mumbai.
The league stage of the fifth edition of Pro Kabaddi came to a close on Friday with the completion of 132 matches across 12 teams which were divided into two zones. Post a good two and a half months of exciting, edge-of-the-seat humdingers in the form of some stellar matches, six teams made the cut to the all-important playoffs which are scheduled to begin on Monday.
By virtue of finishing on top of the points tally in their respective zones, the Gujarat Fortunegiants and Bengal Warriors will have two shots at sealing their place in the finals while the rest of the four teams in the likes of Puneri Paltan, Haryana Steelers, UP Yoddha and Patna Pirates will have to tread past each fixture akin to a knockout.
In this light, Sportskeeda looks at the 5 players that one should keep a close eye in the upcoming fixtures:
#5 Surender Nada (Haryana Steelers)
The captain from the hot-bed of kabaddi, Surender Nada will have a menacing presence in the left corner position for the Haryana Steelers given his expertise with the lethal tackles that are inflicted to perfection.
Watch out for his ever so strong ankle holds that can pin down the best of the raiders and his blocks in tandem with partner-in-crime, Mohit Chhillar. He will look to add more tackles to his tally 79 points which have him perched atop the leaderboard.
