The fifth season of Pro Kabaddi Season is right around the corner and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before. With the league’s upcoming season so close, it is the right moment to pay tribute to some of the greatest teams that ever played in the four editions so far of the PKL. The league has seen many great players exhibiting their skills, prowess and abilities on the mat but no matter how many great individual players you have unless the team starts playing as a unit, it is difficult to establish a sustained winning momentum.
Dominating a competition collectively as a team is a completely different story. A team might boast of the greatest individual players on planet earth but if they can’t gel, mesh and perform as a well-functioning team, they will not succeed. The following are some of the best teams that have played in PKL’s history.
1) Jaipur Pink Panthers – Season 1
The season 1 win for Jaipur Pink Panthers was a historic one. That side comprised of warriors and gladiators who played out of their skin throughout the edition and ultimately emerged victorious when all was said and done.The usual suspect, Jasvir Singh was the MVP, picking up a massive 106 raid points.
Buit was Maninder Singh who took the league by storm, scoring a whopping 130 raid points. He was responsible for Jaipur winning 10 of their 14 matches in the league stage.
He was supported by an all-rounder, Rajesh Narwal who contributed with a crucial 72 points of his own. Defenders, Rohit Rana and Prashant Chavan were among the very best in season 1, scoring 70 tackle points between them. There others who went under the radar but had a positive impact were an Singh and veteran Navneet Gautam.
