Pro Kabaddi Season 7 Auctions ended with the bang with 2 players breaching the 1 Crore mark as opposed to 6 players in Pro Kabaddi Season 6. We look at the costliest buys of Pro Kabaddi Season 7 Auctions. The list features 4 raiders and a defending all-rounder.
Siddharth Desai (Telugu Titans):
The giant raider fetched 1 Crore 45 lakhs becoming the costliest player of Pro Kabaddi Season 7 and the 2nd most expensive player in Pro Kabaddi History. The 27- year was the break out star of Pro Kabaddi Season 6 and was named the best debutant of PKL 6. Telugu Titans will hope that Sid Desai replicates his last season’s performances and leads the Titans to the play-offs.
Nitin Tomar (Puneri Paltan):
Puneri Paltan exercised the FBM option and bought back Tomar after Tamil Thalaivas and U.P Yoddhas had slugged it out for him. The 24-year old became only the first player to command in excess of 1 Crore in successive Pro Kabaddi League auctions.
Rahul Chaudhari (Tamil Thalaivas):
“Raid Machine” Rahul Chaudhari was signed by Tamil Thalaivas for 94 lakhs ending Rahul’s 6- year stay with the Telugu Titans. The Poster boy of Kabaddi will form a deadly double act with Ajay Thakur, the Captain of Tamil Thalaivas.
Monu Goyat (U.P Yoddha):
The most expensive player in Pro Kabaddi Season 6 Auctions Monu Goyat was picked up by U.P Yoddhas for 93 lakhs making him the 4th most expensive player PKL Auctions 2019. The “Silent Assasin” will feature for his 4th team in 4 years after turning out for Bengal Warriors, Patna Pirates, Haryana Steelers and now for U.P Yoddha in PKL 7.
Sandeep Narwal (U Mumba):
The “Beast” Sandeep Narwal was picked up by U Mumba for a massive price for 89 lakhs. The all-rounder is the only non-raider to feature in the list highlighting his class and consistency over the years. U Mumba fans can salivate at the prospect of a corner combination of Fazel Atrachali and Sandeep Narwal which will surely terrify the opposing raiders.
