UP Yoddhas’, a consistently strong team in Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), boasts a formidable lineup for Season 10. Led by the prolific Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill in raiding, the team aims to clinch the elusive title. Narwal, the most successful raider in PKL history, demonstrated his prowess with 220 points in the previous season. Gill, despite injury setbacks, scored 140 raid points and showcased versatility in defense.
Vijay Malik, a potent assist raider from Dabang Delhi, adds depth to the raiding unit. In defense, UP Yoddhas’ lineup is well-defined with Nitish Kumar, Sumit, Ashu Singh, and Harendra Kumar. Sumit, the standout performer in the last season with 54 tackle points, solidifies the left corner, while Nitish Kumar’s experience anchors the right corner. Ashu Singh and Harendra Kumar contribute as right cover and left cover, respectively.
With a playoff berth in the previous season, UP Yoddhas, determined to break the playoff barrier, retained their core team during the auction for PKL 10. The predicted starting seven includes raiders Pardeep Narwal, Surender Gill, and Vijay Malik, along with defenders Nitesh Kumar, Sumit, Ashu Singh, and Harendra Kumar.
As the team eyes championship glory, the blend of experience and emerging talent positions UP Yoddhas as formidable contenders in the upcoming PKL season.
