1. Mohammadreza Shadlou (Puneri Paltan): The Iranian wall, Mohammadreza Shadlou, was instrumental in Puneri Paltan's championship victory. With 99 tackle points, he fell just short of the all-time record by just 1 point.

2. Krishan Dhull (Patna Pirates): Experience defender, Krishan's defensive skills were invaluable for Patna Pirates. He amassed 78 tackle points, forming a formidable defensive unit that helped the team reach the semi-finals. They lost the semis against Puneri Paltan.

3. Yogesh (Dabang Delhi KC): A young talent brimming with potential, Yogesh emerged as a key player for Dabang Delhi KC. His agility and ability to read raiders' moves resulted in 74 tackle points, showcasing his bright future in the league.

4. Rahul Sethpal (Haryana Steelers): An underrated gem, Rahul Sethpal surprised many with his defensive masterclass. While his 73 tackle points were impressive, his ability to execute super tackles was unmatched, leading the league with 15. His heroics played a crucial part in Haryana Steelers' journey to the finals.

5. Ankush (Jaipur Pink Panthers): Having established himself as a defensive stalwart in Season 9, Ankush continued his dominance in Season 10. With 70 tackle points, he was a pillar at the back for Jaipur Pink Panthers, helping them reach the semi-finals.

While tackle points provide a quantitative measure of a defender's contribution, their true value lies in their ability to disrupt raiders' plans, create opportunities for teammates, and instil fear in the opposition. A well-coordinated defensive unit can turn the tide of a match, and Pro Kabaddi Season 10 was proof of that.

As Pro Kabaddi evolves, teams increasingly recognise the importance of investing in strong defensive units. Young talents like Yogesh are demonstrating that alongside raiders, defenders are the silent heroes who deserve recognition. With the right strategies and training, defenders have the potential to become game-changers in the upcoming seasons.

Pro Kabaddi Season 10 highlighted the significance of a balanced team where raiders and defenders complement each other. The exceptional performances of these top defenders not only secured crucial points for their teams but also sent a message that defensive skills is just as valuable as raiding skills in the exciting world of Kabaddi.
