BIO STATS FORM AUCTION

K. Prapanjan is one of the talented raiders in the Indian National Kabaddi team who comes from the bloodline of talented Kabaddi players. 

Childhood and Early Life

He was born on 29 May 1993 in a small town called Sankagiri in Salem district, Tamil Nadu. From childhood itself, Prapanjan had a lot of exposure to the Kabaddi world and he drove his inspiration for the game from his father Kumaravel who was a district-level Kabaddi player. His mother also supported her children the same way she supported her husband and encouraged them to never give up on their passion and love for the game.

Just like Prapanjan, his brother Subash and sister Yashini, later on, stepped into their family legacy. His siblings never missed any of his matches and observed him closely to learn from him and to help him correct his flaws.

 

K. Prapanjan Kabaddi Career

Prapanjan is a graduate of PSN Engineering College of Technology, Tirunelveli. During his school days, he showed an interest in volleyball, but it didn’t last long. After his education, he shifted on to his career path of achieving his true passion and moved to Chennai.

In Chennai, he got into the Sports Authority of India. From there he was selected to teams playing for national-level competitions. Later on, by showcasing his true raider potential he became the part of the national camp. The camp was a game-changing experience for Prapanjan. There he got a chance to meet the best professional raiders like Anup Kumar and Ajay Thakur and an opportunity to train with them. Prapanjan as a growing player showed enthusiasm to learn and watched other players closely to improve his skills and master their tactics. At the camp, he was trained by Kasinathan Baskaran. Prapanjan had very good reflexes that were required by a skillful raider and his coach trained him well to become a better raider.

 

K. Prapanjan PKL Career

Prapanjan made his debut in Pro Kabaddi League season 2 by earning 2 raid points out of 4 matches used as a substitute. In season 3 he joined U Mumba, but his statistics remained the same as U Mumba was brimming with talent in both raiding and defending departments and he didn't get an opportunity to make an impact. In season 4, he joined Telugu Titans and earned 12 raid points out of 11 matches played, mostly used as a substitute/impact raider in do-or-die situations. In season 5, he was part of the Tamil Thalaivas as deputy to Ajay Thakur and by had his best season scoring 123 raid points out of 22 matches played. He was known for scoring the highest Do-or-Die raid points for Tamil Thalaivas in season 5.

In season 6, he joined Gujarat Fortune Giants and was appointed as the vice-captain of the team. He maintained his striking statistics by earning 122 raid points out of 22 matches and took his team to the finals.

Bengal Warriors brought Prapanjan for Rs 55.50 lakhs to play in Pro Kabaddi League season 7. He became one of the key players to take Bengal Warriors to the title scoring more than 100 points for a consecutive third season. He complimented Nabibaksh, Maninder Singh and Sukesh Hegde perfectly all throughout the season.
