Wazir Singh is an Indian Kabaddi Player. He is one of the well known names in Pro Kabaddi League, the national level franchise Kabaddi tournament. Wazir was born on 3 September 1988 in the state of Kabaddi players and wrestlers, Haryana. Wazir plays for Haryana Steelers.
Wazir is a sub inspector in Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). The Haryana born raider is well known for his typical raiding strategy where he pins his opponent in the corner with agility and his thigh-high-five celebration.
Rise to glory
Wazir began his Pro Kabaddi career with Puneri Paltan where he emerged as one of the top 10 leading raiders in the first two seasons with 104 and 65 raid points. His average of 8.67 was the third best in the first season, only behind Rahul Chaudhari and Anup Kumar. Despite of such heroics Wazir Singh turned out to be the forgotten hero as he was kept out of the tournament for succeeding two seasons in a row due to his knee injury.
Comeback from the injury
The ligament injury was perhaps the worst thing that could have happened to Wazir Singh as it kept him on the sidelines for approximately two years. Wazir made his comeback with Haryana Steelers in the fifth season of PKL. Wazir scored in his first return raid for Steelers against a formidable U Mumba. He finished with six raid points in that match, but unfortunately lost the game by just one point. Many hold Wazir responsible for this loss as he gave away two vital points in the finishing moments of the game. Wazir is currently captaining Puneri Paltan in the 2018 season of Pro Kabaddi League.
Signature Move : Running Hand Touch
In this move the raider uses his agility and combines it with the element of surprise to run and touch a defender with a full extension of his body and escape quickly to safety.
Wazir racked up 107 raid Points in season 5 for Haryana Steelers. He was the top raider for Puneri Paltan in both season 1 and 2 and then for Haryana Steelers in season 5.
