Let’s of have a look at the probable contenders who can end PKL 2018 with most raid points to their name.
Siddharth Desai (UMumba)
Siddharth has had a dream start to his career. Roped in by UMumba at the start of the season, Siddharth has played each and every match so far for UMumba and has emerged as he highest scorer in the raid department with 97 points to his name from just 7 games. Going by his form, it will take him only a solitary game to surpass Nitin Tomar‘s tally.
Pardeep Narwal (Patna Pirates)
With the home leg of Patna in play, this is apparently the best chance for Pardeep Narwal to clinch the prime spot and become the highest raid scorer for the season as of now. With 92 points fro 8 games, Pardeep Narwal is currently placed at the third spot and with a rich history of raiding. He looks determined to end the season with maximum raid points, having already achieved the accolade of highest raid points scorer in the history of Pro Kabaddi League.

Ajay Thakur (Tamil Thalaivas)
Though his team is struggling in every facet of the game, there is nothing stopping the skipper of Tamil Thalaivas who is leading the way in the raid department for Tamil Thalaivas with raid points from 8 games. After completing 600 raid points already this year in PKL, he would be eyeing to end the season with glory both individually and on the team front.
Pawan Kumar Sehrawat (Bengaluru Bulls)
The rise of a modern dawn has definitely arrived in Bengaluru Bulls, and the future looks belligerently bright for the Bulls. With seasoned campaigners like Kashiling Adake and Rohit Kumar already in the side, it was never going to be a walk in the park kind of stuff for the 20-year-old who has now cemented his place in the side and is looking indeed stronger to go places. With 60 raid points from just 4 games, this lad is surely a prize raider.
