Pro Kabaddi League Season 5: Top 5 Performers of Day 74
On the second day of playoffs the Bengal Warriors were pitted against the newly PKL debutants Gujarat Fortunegiants in the first qualifier where the latter were too hot to handle for the boys from Bengal and emerged winners with the scoreline reading 42-17.
Whereas in the second game of the evening the winners from last night locked horns with defending champions knocking out Puneri Paltans 42-32. Let us have a look at the top 5 performers from the night.
#5 Mahendra Rajput (Gujarat Fortunegiants)
A selection that surprised many when coach Manpreet Singh handed Mahendra Rajput a place in the starting 7 ahead of regulars Sukesh Hegde and Chandran Ranjit turned to be inspiring in the end. Mahendra Rajput dealt telling blows in the first half where the teams were evenly matched by continuously attacking the left in of the Bengal Warriors and catching the defence off-guard on more than one occasion. Usually brought in as a substitute throughout the campaign, Rajput didn't disappoint his coach Manpreet as he notched up 8 raid points on the night.
