The Pro Kabaddi League Season five kicks off next month & for the 1st time it will facet 12 teams that will challenge over 130 matches across a time phase of 13 weeks. The 4 new teams have been selected from the states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu were part of the auction in May that saw over 400 players go under the hammer.
The side from Haryana who have been named the Steelers have built a dreadful squad full of knowledge that includes priority pick Surender Nada & veteran raiders Wazir Singh, Sonu Narwal & Surjeet Singh. The JSW Group owned side also pulled off the good deal pick of the auction, signing up star defender Mohit Chhillar for a sum of just Rs.46.50 Lakh.
Chhillar was the most costly player in the season four auction & it is shocking that he went for a sum that was less than his earlier price last year despite being one of the best players in the globe in his position.
How is your training for Season 5 going? What are your potential from it?
I am actually excited for the new season & we are sure it will be even superior the previous four. previous time we gave it our greatest effort with the Bengaluru team but it was not sufficient as we could not reach the semifinals.
I’m pleased that once again Surender Nada & I will be in the same team. We are appreciative to the JSW team for showing faith in us & we hope to repay it by success the final in Season 5.
How would you rate the other teams in the session? Any clear favorites in your view?
It is really hard to decide a favorite at this moment. All teams are well matched & the difference between them is minor.
I would say that every team has its own strengths & weaknesses & will look to make upon them before the period starts. Who will win or lose we can only locate out once the games begin.
What are your opinion on your auction cost, particularly after it fell from last period?
The cost is something I have no manage over & I am happy with anything I have got. I appreciate the reason why teams didn’t bid for me, given the condition that was going on in the room.
Surender was already selected as precedence pick by Haryana & thus other teams knew that they will go to any amount to pick me. I am happy that both of us are in the similar team & I can’t wait for the new period to begin.
