Pro Kabaddi League 2018, Panchkula Leg: Top 5 defenders from Jaipur's home leg
#4 Mahender Singh - Bengaluru Bulls
Bengaluru Bulls' young defender Mahender Singh was the top scoring defender for them in the Panchkula leg of the competition. He continued to be a strong force in the backline with his ability to execute effective blocks from the cover position and get tackle points on the board.
Mahender formed a strong cover combination with his fellow teammate Ashish Kumar Sangwan and the two ensured the Bulls provide strong coverage to their raiding unit in the backline. He picked up a couple of points in their comfortable win over the Telugu Titans and was a handy contributor with his assists to the corner defenders Amit Sheoran and Raju Lal Choudhary.
In the Bulls' second game against the Patna Pirates, the young Mahender was the key man in the defence as he kept the 'Dubki King', Pardeep Narwal in check by putting in strong blocks and dashes.
