Born on 30th October 1996 in Delhi, Manjeet Dahiya is one of the new young sensations in Kabaddi.
Manjeet Pro Kabaddi Career
In PKL season 6, Manjeet was bought by Patna Pirates for 20.4 Lakhs as support to lead raiders Pardeep and Deepak. He is also a decent defender and helps the team when needed. He made his mark in his debut appearance in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 6 by scoring 8 points, just 3 short of his captain Pardeep Narwal. He got this chance as Deepak Narwal failed to impress coach Ram Mehar Singh. Standing over 6 feet in height, this raider bolts through the defensive lineup before the opposition understands what hit them. He uses his height to his advantage and escapes the defense using a variety of techniques.
He makes use of his height and reaches of arms for quick touchpoints. His long legs have taken him across the mat and strike fear in the opposition defense. The deadly combination of experience and grit has paid off and he got a super 10 only in his 9th match in the league. In PKL Season 7, after a lot of intense bidding Puneri Paltan took this young raider into their squad for 63 lakhs.
