Pawan Sehrawat

Bengaluru Bulls captain also known as Hi-Flyer is this season’s top raider so far with a score of 141. During the last season, Sehrawat stole the scene for Bengaluru Bulls when Rohit Kumar’s form took a dip. Sehrawat was able to finish last season as the top scorer with 353 points. It will be interesting if he’ll be able to reach this number again this year.

Dabang Delhi’s 21-year-old Naveen Kumar is the youngest kabaddi player we’ve seen on the PKL state so far. He already scored 130 after participating in 8 matches this year. Last season, he was the fastest raider to score 300 raid points.

Maninder Singh

Singh is the captain of the Bengal Warriors since last year with a running score of 111 this season. Last season, during a match against Patna Pirates, he was named as the second-quickest raider to reach 600 points in the entire PKL.

Arjun Deshwal

Deshwal is one of the youngest raiders in this season of the PKL. He was part of U Mumba in the last season when his overall raid strike rate was 54 percent and tackle strike rate was 33 percent. In all 19 games that he played, he scored 106.

Vikash has been part of the PKL since its fourth season. During the seventh PKL season, he played a total of 20 matches with a 49% raid strike rate and 25% tackle strike rate. He earned a total of 195 points last year. His running score this year is 77 out of 9 matches.
