– Ambarish Upadhyay

Puneri Paltan, one of the most loved Pro Kabaddi team from the inaugural season is ready to give some “Bhaari Performance” in PKL SEASON 8. Paltan have made a balanced squad in the auction roping in the Showman Rahul Chaudhari & the Dynamic Corner Duo of Baldev Singh & Vishal Bhardwaj.

Let’s have a look on Puneri Paltan’s Performance so far in the Pro Kabaddi League :-

Matches Played– 128

Won– 50

Lost– 67

Draws– 11

Paltan had a mixed performance throughout the 7 seasons despite having some big names in their squad like Deepak Niwas Hooda, Ajay Thakur, Manjeet Chhilar, Sandeep Narwal, Wazir Singh, Surjeet Singh and many more.

The reason of having the mixed performance was the team failed to perform as a unit on several occasions. The highest raid point scorer for Puneri Paltan is Deepak Hooda (367 raid points) and highest tackle points scorer is Girish Ernak (154 tackle points).

Paltan have shown trust on the young guns from their “club team” YUVA PALTAN by including three of their players AAKASH SHINDE, ASLAM INAMDAR & SHUBHAM SHELKE into the main squad for PKL SEASON 8.

Let’s have a look at their performance :-

1:- AAKASH SHINDE – Top scorer for Maharashtra & overall 4th best raider in 46th Junior National championship.

2:- SHUBHAM SHELKE – Impressive all-round performance in 38th All India India Men’s Kabaddi Championship.

3:- ASLAM INAMDAR – Top raid points scorer from Yuva Paltan in 38th All India India Men’s Kabaddi Championship.

It would be interesting to see how well these young lads will perform in their debut season for Puneri Paltan in season 8.
