Pro Kabaddi League Season 5: Combined 7 team of the tournament
The Pro Kabaddi League season 5 came to a close with much fanfare, as the Patna Pirates made it a hattrick of titles, after defeating Gujarat Fortunegiants in the final.
With new teams being added, and certain new rules being implemented, the 2017 season of the Pro Kabaddi League broke all record books, as the likes of Pardeep Narwal, Rohit Kumar, and Rishank Devadiga shot to fame. Here, we take a look at 7 of the best kabaddi players from the recently ended season.
Pardeep Narwal (Captain) – 369 points in 26 matches
For all practical purposes, this season could well be called the Pardeep Kabaddi League. Pardeep scored a staggering 369 points in just 26 matches with 19 Super 10s. His raid-points tally was 150 more than anyone else. Be it eight-point raids, back hops or between-the-legs escapes, the dubki king let his raiding do all the talking and led by the sheer weight of example. He almost scored 100 points in just four playoff matches, in the end falling just five points short of a century.
