5 Outrageous records that prove Naveen Kumar is PKL’s best raider

After a thrilling action that spanned 13 weeks and some 136 odd hard-fought games, we are finally into the most important stage of the Pro Kabaddi League– the grand finale between Dabang Delhi and Bengal Warriors. The final is more special because both teams will be fighting for their first-ever title.

Dabang Delhi have been the most convincing of the two sides, and a large part of that success belongs to one man- Naveen Kumar. The young raider’s swift footwork and spiderman-esque 6th sense in beating defenders have enthralled everyone. It, thus, comes as no surprise that tacklers have yet to get hold of Naveen’s coveted ankle. Here’s a list of record that prove Naveen may be the best raider in the league.

Most Super 10s
