Pro Kabaddi League: List of 3 Best captains in PKL History
Former U Mumba captain and current Puneri Paltan coach, Anup Kumar is considered one of the best captains of PKL. U Mumba was champion in the second season and runners up in the first and third season of PKL. His ability to read the game, and stay calm and composed made him such a good captain. He was also named “Captain Cool” by his fans because of his ice-cool head.
Manpreet Singh played only one season where he led the Patna Pirates. The Patna-based franchise qualified for the semifinals in the first two seasons but failed to capture the trophy. Ahead of the third season, the Pirates signed Manpreet and assigned him the team’s reins. With players like Pardeep Narwal and Rohit Kumar in the squad, Manpreet led the Patna-based franchise magnificently and guided them to their maiden PKL title. He did not score many points for the team, but he used his players well and altered the game’s speed as per the situation properly. His leadership skills helped him become a PKL-winning captain in Season 3.
Veteran defender Joginder Narwal will lead Dabang Delhi KC in Pro Kabaddi 2021. Although Joginder has never won the PKL as a captain, he is one of the top leaders in the league’s history. He joined Dabang Delhi KC in Season 6. Before the tournament, Delhi played five PKL seasons and failed to qualify for the playoffs even once. After Narwal became the team’s captain, Delhi made it to the playoffs for the first time in Season 6. In Season 7, Delhi qualified for their maiden PKL final under Narwal’s leadership.
