Top 3 teams in PKL 10 Who can buy the Mighty Maninder Singh
Punjab-born PKL's 2nd most successful Raider Maninder Singh has become a household name in Pro Kabaddi League. All because of his exceptional skills and awareness of the sport. His career is a testament to his unwavering caliber and willingness to be the best.
Maninder Singh's standout attributes includes extraordinary agility, which has carved out a niche and something he has used well time in time out to terrorize opposing defenses. His rapid footwork and fluid motions were on full display on Season 9 as well due to which he finished in the top scoring charts.
He finished with 238 raid points in 21 appearances last season but Bengal Warriors had a very bad season. The season 7 winners finished 11th in the league table, winning only 8 and losing 11 matches.
As an aftermath of their down trodden season 9, Maninder Singh was axed and left out of Bengal Warriors' retained players list. It is just another shocking decision made by a PKL side ahead of Season 10 auctions.
Bengal have retained only 4 players which includes 3 inexperienced raiders and right cover Vaibhav Garje. As a result of their squad wipe out, the Warriors have the highest purse of INR 4.22 Crores. They are looking for a fresh start and PKL 10 auction will give them the opportunity.
Bengal can choose Maninder with the FBM card and even if they do, here are 3 teams that can target Maninder Singh.
1. Patna Pirates - The 3-time champions had a turbulent last season, finishing 10th in the points table. That was mainly due to a lack of a raider who could compliment Sachin Tanwar and for season 10, the Pirates need a player who can be a constant threat to opposing defenses.
Strategic brilliance is another name of Maninder's gameplay. He possesses an innate ability to decipher opponents' tactics, allowing him to dynamically adjust his approach. This will definitely help Patna Pirates and they can also put him in the leader role. Pirates have a purse of INR 3.09 Crores and can spend on Maninder Singh.
2. Dabang Delhi K.C - The Capital city outfit do not have a shortage of Raiders but they do lack experienced Raiders in their arsenal. If they pick Maninder Singh during the auction, their offensive front will boost and Delhi will have 2 main raiders to destroy opposing defenses.
The Season 8 winners will be rebuilding their squad and defensive re-structure is also required.
Delhi have a purse of INR 3.12 Crores and they can get into the bidding war for Maninder.
3. Gujarat Giants - The 3rd team that might go for Maninder Singh is Gujarat Giants. The one-time finalists do not have any leader type of a player who can lead from the front.
Beyond his on-mat performance, Maninder Singh's leadership qualities is exceptional.
He motivates his teammates to deliver their utmost. His commitment to training and personal growth serves as a wellspring of inspiration and will help Gujarat Giants have a squad that can challenge for the title.
In essence, Maninder Singh's Kabaddi skills encompass a harmonious fusion of agility, strategy, strength, and leadership. The Pro Kabaddi League season 10 Auction will take place on 8th and 9th September at Mumbai.
