#1. Pawan Kumar Sehrawat

Pawan Kumar Sehrawat is at the top of raiding points table with 187 points. Pawan exhibited a stunning 29-point performance against the Bengal Warriors– the third-highest individual score by a single player in a match in Pro Kabaddi history. This proves that the raid machine of Bengaluru Bulls is at the peak of his game this season. Talking about his records, Pawan said, “I play for the team, not records. I play according to the match situation. Towards the end, our defence was outstanding. Records are not as important as the team is. So, ‘team-first’ is my mindset.”
