A right corner to a deadly raider – how was the Pawan’s journey?
Speaking on the occasion, Pawan said, “Before I started playing as a Raider, I played as a Right Cover and Right Corner. When I joined the Indian Railways team, I was recruited not as a Raider but as a Right Cover and a Right Corner. Even in Pro Kabaddi when I got the chance, I got it as a right corner. Later I started playing as a raider.
Initially, I played mainly as a right corner. I used to raid for some times when needed. Then I started playing as a raider when the team needed me. My coaches then told me, “You’re playing right corner. Keep raiding too. Stop raiding if you stop scoring points.”
