Pro Kabaddi League 2017 Season 5: Top 7 players who did not make it to the playoffs
These seven players were exceptional, but they could not take their team to the finals.
The group stage of the PKL Season 5 is done and dusted and now the six teams from Zone A and Zone B will battle it out in the super playoffs due to start on the 23rd of October 2017.
The 2017 Season 5 played host to some excellent calibre of raiding and defending that witnessed some exciting moments from every game. In the end, six teams made it to the next stage while the other six teams were out of contention.
In this slider, we try and form the best team from the big names that missed out from taking part in the playoffs.
#7 Vishal Bharadwaj [Telugu Titans]
The lynchpin of the Titans defence in the absence of some big names, Vishal's presence on the left corner made life easy for the rest of the defence. The youngster showed an excellent presence of mind and put in fearless tackles on some big names to get the confidence going in the Titans' camp.
Vishal collected most of his points through his trademark ankle hold and more often than initiated the tackles. In 22 matches, the left corner made 68 successful tackles and collected 71 tackle points from 137 total tackles. In addition to this, his dashes and the support he provided to other defenders was also vital for the Titans this season although they did not make it to the playoffs.
