Murder rape, robbery– off late Sonipat is in the news for quite a few dishonorable reasons. Last month a 23-year-old woman was gang raped & murdered her skull shattered wide open by bricks. The list of sinful & shameful behavior in this city runs long.
You can Google it knock bodily out. For the people in this district it’s easy & miserable to get caught up in this whirl wind.
But games always finds a way to put things into perspective. The best beneficiary of Pro Kabaddi league Season 5 is not a player who handled to pick up a cheque of Rs.93 Lacs, it is not U-Mumba Haryana Steelers or Dabang-Delhi. It’s a city whose people have lastly found a way to associate them-selves with amazing helpful.
At the auction this season 50 players from Haryana were successfully selected. Among them 18 are from Sonipat a town in the state of Haryana & all-rounder Sandeep Narwal received the 2nd highest bid. Puneri-Paltan managed to prize him away for Rs.66 Lacs.
In liability so he became the 7th most costly player at the auction which featured maximum 400 players.
With 171 raid points & 161 attempt points. Sandeep has by far been Pro-Kabaddi’s most reliable all arounder over the track of its 4 seasons. He was a crucial player for Patna-Pirates before he moved to Telugu-Titans where he shouldered extra responsibilities marshalling his defence with military accuracy.
beside ‘Deepak Hooda’ Narwal is set to form a potent company at Pune this season.
Bengal-Warriors made some shrewd signings as well which built-in raider Deepak Narwal & defender Virender Wajir Singh, together of whom hail from Sonipat. The conflicting but supremely brilliant Ravinder Pahal made his way to Bengaluru-Bulls along with defender Pradeep Narwal.
Ravinder was the first player ever from Sonipat to play at the state level. He will be keen to overcome his conflicting form & finally live up to his possible this year.
“Sonipat has had a wonderful tradition in kabaddi. But then still very little people used to play the game previously.
Arguably the best raider in the league:- Pardeep Narwal hails from you know where. The Patna-Pirates were very wise in retaining him for season five.
‘Kabaddi is extremely big in Sonipat, so I am sure that everybody back home watches each second that I play’ he said. Not one to articulate himself openly to the scribes Pardeep is very reclusive at press conference.
But when he enters the mat Narwal changes himself into a creature who persistently attempts to pick up at slightest a point every time he steps up to raid. All eyes will be on season 4th in second most successful raider “behind Rahul Chaudhari”.
U-Mumba’s defensive backbone this time will consist of 2 players from Sonipat:– joginder Narwal and Kuldeep Singh. Sing was selected up for a massive Rs.51.5Lacs.
Former Jaipur-Panthers all-rounder Mahipal Narwal & the relatively underused Rakesh Narwal will work their trade for new entrants Gujarat this season. The under-rated Sonu Narwal will be loving the reality that he gets to signify his hometown:– Haryana this time around.
But it is Sonu’s previous teammate, who is Sonipat’s most costly kabaddi player this season. The nimble footed all-rounder, Rajesh Narwal was buy by Uttar-Pradesh for a enormous Rs.69Lacs. reporters rarely talk regarding Rajesh like they do of the other astral names in the league.
Whether his group is on the up or lethargic, you can always imagine the all rounder to step up & lead by pattern. Technically speaking he’s perhaps one of the premium players in the PKL who rarely displays crabbiness on the mat.
Sonipat: received its name from Svarna-prastha which explains to ‘The Golden City’. I have no thought if one can find gold in this early town. But you are sure to locate a truck-load of brilliant Kabaddi players.
