Will the return of Surender Nada be beneficial for Steelers?
In any sport, injuries are inevitable. Sometimes they are minor sometimes they are major. Kabaddi is a contact game. Injuries are considered as ‘part of Kabaddi’. Injury can force a player to take a break from sport against his wish. The eighth season of Pro Kabaddi League will begin from 22nd December. One player making a comeback for this season is Surender Nada.
Surender Nada is one of the most successful defenders of PKL history and Indian Kabaddi team. He has scored 222 tackle points in 71 matches. He has 19 high 5s. His average is 2.9 tackle points per match. He was also the leading tackle points scorer in season 5.
In season 6, ankle hold specialist Nada suffered from shoulder injury during the match. But it was so serious that he was ruled out for the whole season. Then after, he did not take part in the seventh season also. Hence he had to stay away from Kabaddi mat for two years.
Haryana Steelers bought him for Rs. 20 lakh. In the upcoming season, Surender Nada will mark his comeback. After a long wait of two seasons and three years, he will show his skills on the mat once again. Nada will defend his team with the help of Ravi Kumar and Rajesh Narwal. No doubt he will look forward to prove himself and win the trophy for his team.
