59Views 0Like

Looking ahead to the 2023 Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) auction, Bengal Warriors, who emerged as champions in Season 7, are gearing up with a resolute strategy as they step into the kabaddi arena. Established in 2014, the Bengal Warriors achieved significant success in 2019, leaving a lasting mark in the annals of PKL history.

Nonetheless, their recent performance presented a stark contrast, as they managed only eight victories in 22 matches throughout the league stage. Their disappointing 11th-place outcome stood in sharp contrast to their earlier achievements. This decline has paved the way for the possibility of a comprehensive reevaluation and transformation.

Leading up to the PKL 2023 Auction, the Bengal Warriors took a surprising step by releasing their primary raider and captain, Maninder Singh. With two consecutive seasons without making it to the playoffs, the team has felt the need for a strategic overhaul.

As the PKL 2023 Auction approaches, the Bengal Warriors are facing a pivotal moment, positioning themselves for a comeback. Armed with the largest budget and the opportunity to reshape their team, the Warriors are currently at a significant juncture, where the path to revival stands before them.


A Showcase of Talent: Rohit’s Standout Performances

1. Fazel Atrachali

Originating from Iran, Fazel Atrachali commands great respect in the realm of kabaddi and is renowned as one of the most formidable defenders on the international platform. Additionally, his leadership prowess came to the fore when he led Puneri Paltan during Season 9, leading them to their inaugural appearance in the final.

Since his debut in the PKL in 2015, Atrachali has consistently stood out as a model of reliability in the league. His performances earned him the Best Defender award on two occasions, in 2016 and 2019. Fazel’s remarkable achievement lies in his unprecedented record of 424 tackle points, establishing the highest count in PKL history.

Renowned for his robust defensive tactics, Fazel Atrachali’s leadership and seasoned experience could inject fresh energy into the Warriors’ lineup. Collaborating with coach Kasinathan Baskaran, this partnership could potentially spark their resurgence, reshaping them from a struggling team to a formidable contender once more.

His remarkable record of 424 tackle points, which includes 24 super tackles, coupled with an impressive tackle success rate of 55%, underscores his significance beyond mere statistics. Across teams like U Mumba, Patna Pirates, Gujarat Giants, and Puneri Paltans, Fazel has displayed his leadership skills and strategic aptitude to guide his squads’ success.

2. Pawan Kumar Sehrawat

Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, a top raider in the league, has consistently performed well in the PKL. He has scored over 200 raid points each season and has a total of around 987 raid points in his career. He was the best raider in Seasons 6, 7, and 8, highlighting his consistency.

Bengaluru Bulls surprised everyone by releasing Pawan Kumar Sehrawat last season. He was then bought by Tamil Thalaivas for a record-breaking INR 2.26 crore in Season 9, making him the most expensive player in auction history. Unfortunately, he couldn’t play the entire season due to an injury.

His impressive athleticism and ability to score important raid points make him excel even under pressure. There are high hopes for his successful comeback. He’s also expected to have a significant impact on Bengal Warriors, serving as both the lead raider and captain, which will be extremely valuable.

3. Mohammadreza Shadloui

A name to watch out for in the upcoming auction is Mohammadreza Shadloui. This 20-year-old talent from Iran has captured attention in the PKL. In Season 8, Shadloui made his debut and impressed by earning 89 tackle points in 24 matches, including 10 High 5s.

His standout performance as the top defender of the season earned him a well-deserved spot in the PKL Season 8 Dream Team. In Season 9, he continued his dominance with 84 tackle points in just 20 games.

What sets Shadloui apart is his agility and versatile skills, which also make him an effective raider capable of securing crucial points. He holds the league record for the highest number of tackle points in a single match, an impressive 16. Given his strong all-round abilities, he could greatly enhance the Bengal Warriors’ lineup.
