The ‘Dubki King’ will be on the radar of several teams for the forthcoming season.

The Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) houses some of the best kabaddi players from the country. Pardeep Narwal is definitely amongst the best kabaddi players from India. He has broken plenty of records in the PKL and continues to be a fabulous player. The exceptional raider is capable of deciding games single-handedly. He has over 1600 points in the history of the competition. 

Pardeep Narwal helped Patna Pirates win the PKL title three times. The “dubki king” deserves credit for popularising kabaddi in India thanks to his sensational performances. He played for UP Yoddhas in the previous season of the competition. Despite not delivering up to his usual standards, Narwal managed 122 points in 17 matches. 

A player that is expected to score in the region of 200 points, was not an entirely satisfactory display. For the past three editions of the PKL, the star raider has been playing for UP Yoddhas. In these three seasons, he did not deliver the kind of performance the franchise was expecting. Thus, the raider might not be retained by the outfit for next season. In that situation, a lot of other teams in the PKL could take a swing and buy the player. 

Here is a look at the teams that would like to rope in Pardeep Narwal in their roster for the upcoming season of the PKL:

Gujarat Giants

Gujarat Giants are known for having a good defence in the PKL. They had the likes of Fazel Atrachali, Mohammad Nabibaksh, Sombir and Sourav Gulia all good defenders. But, the team desperately lacked the presence of an experienced raider. HS Rakesh, Sonu Jaglan and Parteek Dahiya were part of the squad but did not have the qualities to single-handedly decide the outcome of games.

Pardeep Narwal is a good option for the Giants. The coach Ram Mehar Singh has already worked with the star raider and done magic when both of them were in Patna Pirates also he is aware of Pardeep’s qualities and would utilise him well. He could bet on his former disciple and bring him to the Giants’ setup. If the star raider decides to join Gujarat, it could be a good move for both parties.

Patna Pirates

Patna Pirates owe their success to Pardeep Narwal. He deserves huge credit for helping the team become the most successful outfit in the PKL. Before the eighth edition, Narwal decided to step into the auction and was recruited by UP Yoddhas. However, the move from Patna to UP did not produce ideal results for the player. He was seen struggling and the intensity of his raiding was not the same.

The “Dubki King” should consider reuniting with the Patna Pirates. On the other hand, the franchise will certainly love to welcome the return of their hero. Their coach Narender Singh Redhu understands can utilise Pardeep’s experience and could use him effectively. The reunion of the team and the player could spell trouble for the rest of the competition. 

Telugu Titans

Telugu Titans desperately need a strong raider in their ranks. The team struggled for points in the previous seasons of PKL. They had brought Pawan Sehrawat, making him most expensive player in history of the competition, but the player didn’t get any support from the rest of the team. The team has finished on the bottom of the league table for three consecutive seasons now. While Pawan is a brilliant raider, there is always an air of doubt regarding the price tag. If the team decides to not retain Pawan and build a fresh team with money in the purse, they can look up to buy Pardeep Narwal in the auction.

Telugu Titans could place their trust in Pardeep Narwal during the upcoming auction. The outfit will get a sensational raider and a high-profile player like Narwal who is very popular. That will definitely give the team’s popularity a huge boost.
