PKL Season 10: Fazel Atrachali & Mohammad Nabibaksh Join Gujarat Giants Camp Ahead of Pro Kabaddi League 2023

As the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) gears up for its highly anticipated 10th season, the Gujarat Giants, owned by Adani Sportsline, are leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of glory. The team, which has twice reached the finals without clinching the title, is eyeing its first PKL championship this time around. The recent addition of international players Fazel Atrachali and Mohammad Nabibaksh to the squad has injected a new level of dynamism and experience as they embark on an intense pre-season training camp.

Under the strategic guidance of coach Ram Mehar Singh, the Gujarat Giants are orchestrating a meticulously planned training regimen, emphasizing a blend of intensity and precision. The team's focus is crystal clear – a triumphant start to the 10th season, set to commence from their home ground in Ahmedabad on December 2, 2023.


The arrival of Fazel Atrachali and Mohammad Nabibaksh to the training camp adds a layer of international prowess to the Gujarat Giants. Atrachali, known as the most successful defender in PKL history, not only fortifies the team's defense but also assumes the crucial role of captaincy. Nabibaksh, an all-rounder, brings versatility and strategic depth, making the Gujarat Giants a force to be reckoned with in PKL 10.

Reflecting on their performance in the previous season, the Gujarat Giants faced challenges under new leadership, managing to secure only nine victories out of 22 matches and finishing eighth in the points table. Despite a strong finish with four wins in the last five matches, they fell short of a playoff berth. The team, led by coach Ram Mehar Singh, is determined to redeem itself in the upcoming season, driven by a desire for a better showing in PKL 10.


The Gujarat Giants exhibited shrewd tactics during the auction for PKL 10, acquiring a total of 14 players to fortify their squad. Fazel Atrachali's inclusion, secured with a bid of Rs 1 crore 60 lakh, not only adds a seasoned defender but also a leader on the mat. Complementing him, players like Mohammad Nabibaksh and Rohit Gulia further enhance the team's capabilities, creating a robust lineup.

As the countdown to PKL 10 intensifies, the Gujarat Giants are poised for a compelling season. With a blend of experience and youth, strategic acquisitions, and a hunger for redemption, the team aims to script a memorable chapter in their PKL journey. Kabaddi enthusiasts can anticipate thrilling encounters as Fazel Atrachali and Mohammad Nabibaksh lead the charge for the Gujarat Giants in their quest for the coveted PKL championship.
