Despite being old, these players can win the match for the team on their own.
The Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) has been entertaining kabaddi fans worldwide since 2014. Some players have been part of this league for a long time, but now their count is increasing among the experienced players. Kabaddi is a sport of fitness, so the impact of growing age is less on players’ performance. With just a few weeks left for PKL 10 to begin, let’s learn about the 5 oldest players joining this season.
5. Rahul Chaudhari – 30 years
Rahul Chaudhari started playing for Telugu Titans in 2014 as a young player. He has consistently performed well, and now, at the age of 30, Jaipur Pink Panthers has decided to keep him for PKL 10. In the ninth season, he earned only 73 points, aiming for a better performance this time.
