These players are continuously performing in the league.

For every Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) game this season 9, our respective correspondents and editors rank their three best-performing players from the match in order. The player ranked at the top of the list is awarded five points. The player finishing second earns three points, whereas the one at the bottom (third place) is given one point.

Such points are carried forward for every player involved in the league, once he’s chosen by our team. Eventually, the total number of points that they accumulate will decide their final position on the leaderboard at the end of PKL season 9. The Khel Now Power Rankings will be published in a series of articles, as we have divided PKL 9 into equal phases of 22 games each for the same. This article includes the rankings for the fifth set of series (89-110) in PKL 9.

Aslam Inamdar (28)

Aslam Inamar has dropped three places to the 10th spot in phase 5. The youngster got injured in the middle and was not an active part in a few matches. Puneri Paltan in his absence brought in Pankaj Mohite who stood up to the expectations becoming the second team to qualify for the playoffs and are currently fighting for the top 2 spots.

Guman Singh (31)

Guman Singh from U Mumba retains the 9th position from the last phase. He hasn’t performed similarly to the way he performed in the middle of the season but is the primary raider for U Mumba. Apart from Ashish, Guman hasn’t got much support for his revival with the team also playing with a (5-2) combination.

Who is your favourite raider between these two?
Pardeep Narwal
  • 12785 ( 74.76 % )
Rahul Chaudhari
  • 4317 ( 25.24 % )
VS VS

Manjeet Dahiya (31)

Manjeet Dahiya from Haryana Steelers too has retained his 8th position from the last phase. He has been the primary raider and is one of the consistent players for the franchise in season 9. For Haryana to qualify Manjeet has to play a very crucial role.

Mohit Goyat (31)

Mohit Goyat like Aslam Inamdar hasn’t featured in all the games Puneri Paltan has played in this phase. Even though the star all-rounder couldn’t feature in many matches he still retains his spot in the top 10 and has moved only one place below to the 6th spot compared to phase 4.

Pardeep Narwal (32) 

Pardeep Narwal is making his maiden entry to the top 10 of the power rankings in season 9. After a moderate start to the season, the star raider has caught up with the pace and has been scoring super 10s consistently in the absence of Surender Gill. With UP Yoddhas almost booking a playoff spot the onus on PArdeep Narwal will be more of being an experienced raider and having won the title thrice as well.

Narender Kandola (38)

Narender Kandola from Tamil Thalaivas has jumped two places above and occupies the fourth spot. Recently the youngster became the fastest to score 200 raid points eclipsing the record held by Siddharth Desai. Narender in his debut season has featured in almost all the phases of power rankings and is turning out to be a star at such a young age.

Naveen Kumar (42)

Naveen “Express” retains the 4th spot but has improved a lot since his dismal form in phase 4. The Dabang Delhi’s captain for the first time after a long time has not scored 10 in three successive games but has gotten back to form with the help of secondary raiders and the defence at times performing well. Dabang Delhi stays firm in the qualification for the playoff.

Maninder Singh (57)

Maninder Singh from Bengal Warriors has retained the 3rd spot and has been one of the most consistent raiders for Bengal Warriors. The defence has not stepped up at the right time which is the reason for the Bengal Warriors’ downfall and at times MAninder has not got enough support in raiding apart from Srikant Jadhav.

Bharat (58)

Bharat has featured in all the phases of power rankings and has led Bengaluru Bulls from the front. The tall lanky raider has single-handedly won Bulls many matches and is one of the main reasons for Bengaluru Bulls’ success.

Arjun Deshwal (67)

Arjun Deshwal for the second time in a row has retained his top spot in the power rankings. Jaipur Pink Panthers has been heavily dependent on Arjun in the raiding department with not enough support from the secondary raiders. Ajith Kumar has been on and off for the entire season but still, Arjun has stood up showing his confidence to perform under pressure.
