Pro Kabaddi Season 6 is expected to be bigger than the previous editions, where some outstanding players battle it out to take home the glory. There are several stalwarts in the ranks of every team who can lift their teams on their own. Likewise, there are youngsters who have the opportunity to exhibit their talents against the best players in the sport.
Ahead of the start of the Pro Kabaddi 2018 season, let’s take a look at the youngsters who can steal the show.
This young gun has been absolutely sensational in the last couple of years, although he does not get enough credit in the shadow of Deepak Niwas Hooda and Anup Kumar. The all-rounder accounted 65 points in the 21 appearances last season. Sure, there are signs of brilliance! The upcoming Pro Kabaddi Season 6 can be his breakout season.
Sachin Tawar was a revelation for Gujarat Fortunegiants last season. In his debut Pro Kabaddi season, Tawar scored a total of 159 points. However, it was sad to see him miss out on the selection for Asian Games, but the youngster will be all pumped up to show his mettle to earn the Indian jersey.
This youngster has been touted as the next big thing in the sport. After beginning his journey with U Mumba, the raider’s stature has grown by leaps and bounds over the years as he also played for Bangalore Bulls and Jaipur Pink Panthers. In season 5, his astonishing athleticism and strength earned 122 raid points despite unavailability for the entire season.
