To reach this milestone in only a handful of matches is no mean feat.
Indian kabaddi players are gearing up for the Senior National Championships which is set to be held by the start of next month. Several records were broken after the successful completion of Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) season 9. Players have kept themselves occupied by playing in the state leagues and district tournaments. Indian Junior kabaddi side won the World Junior Championships defeating rivals Iran in the final.
PKL has made several players shine and attain recognition on the global stage. In this article let us look at the 3 fastest raiders to get to 100 raid points mark in PKL.
Rahul Chaudhari (9)
Rahul Chaudhari known as “showman” had a tremendous start to his Pro Kabaddi League career scoring 151 points and was the second-best raider in the inaugural season. The athlete from Uttar Pradesh started his career with Telugu Titans and got to the 100 raid points mark in his ninth match, making him the joint fastest to notch up 100 raid points.
He is one of the few raiders to cross the 1000 raid points mark and needs 61 more raid points to get to 1100 points. Only two players (Pardeep Narwal and Maninder Singh) have breached the magical mark in the history of the Pro Kabaddi League.
