Rahul Chaudhari Super 10 KreedOn

Rahul Chaudhari, known as the Raid Machine and the leading point scorer in Pro Kabaddi League history, currently ranks third in the list of top raiders. Initially, he remained loyal to Telugu Titans for the league’s initial six seasons before transitioning to Tamil Thalaivas and then Jaipur Pink Panthers.

Throughout his PKL journey, Rahul has exhibited unwavering consistency, amassing over 1300 raid points. In the league’s debut season, he secured the position of the second-best raider, accumulating 151 raid points. Following this, Chaudhari continued with impressive tallies of 98 and 87 points in the subsequent seasons.

Remaining a lone warrior in the Telugu Titans’ squad for the subsequent two seasons, Rahul continued his stellar form, accumulating 184 and 159 points in the fifth and sixth seasons, respectively. Regrettably, despite his outstanding contributions, insufficient support from teammates hindered their progress to the playoffs.

Maninder Singh stands as a stalwart in the realm of Indian Kabaddi, showcasing his prowess as a professional athlete both on the national stage with the Indian Kabaddi Team and within the dynamic arena of the Pro Kabaddi League. As the esteemed captain and primary raider for Bengal Warriors in the PKL, Singh embodies excellence and leadership. His skillful raids and strategic acumen have earned him the rightful acclaim as one of the league’s premier raiders, admired for his agility and tactical astuteness.

Singh’s legacy extends beyond personal prowess, extending to the broader success of his team. Under his leadership, Bengal Warriors achieved an extraordinary milestone in 2019, clinching their inaugural PKL trophy. Singh’s instrumental role in leading his team to this historic victory underscored not just his individual brilliance but also his ability to inspire and guide his teammates toward collective triumphs, cementing his status as a revered figure both within Bengal Warriors and the Pro Kabaddi League fraternity. In 122 matches played in PKL history, Maninder has 1231 Raid Points.

Pardeep Narwal | 1568 Raid Points

Why are Pardeep Narwal, Maninder Singh and other PKL stars not selected for Asian Kabaddi Championships?

The most outstanding raider in the history of the Pro Kabaddi League isn’t a seasoned veteran with 15 years of Kabaddi experience. Surprisingly, it’s the 26-year-old Pardeep Narwal, who rose to prominence starting from the third season. With a staggering 1568 raid points across just 153 games, he has etched his name into the league’s annals as the ‘Dubky King’. Narwal commenced his journey in the league during the second season, representing Bengaluru Bulls. However, it was when he joined Patna Pirates in the third season that something extraordinary began. He amassed a league-leading 116 raid points, propelling the Pirates to their inaugural championship. This marked the inception of his extraordinary run, as his tally of 131 raid points in the fourth season secured Patna’s consecutive title.

Unsurprisingly, Narwal continued his exceptional performance in the sixth season, amassing 233 raid points, placing him second in the league. Despite his heroics, Patna couldn’t secure a playoff spot. He reached the milestone of 900 points in the 2019 PKL season against Haryana Steelers. In the 2022 PKL season, Narwal gathered an impressive total of 188 raid points across 24 matches.

I might be a Mechanical Engineer on the paper, but I was a Sports enthusiast since childhood, screaming at the TV watching cricket at the age of 4. Not much excites me other than sports unless it's free pizza. I can watch literally anything remotely related to sports; Cricket, Football, Tennis, F1, Hockey, Athletics, Chess, you name it! And I love to write too, so at the time I'm not watching sports, I'm writing about it. Or eating pizzas, of course.
