Telugu Titans appoint Ravinder Pahal as new captain for Pro Kabaddi 2022


Telugu Titans have named defender Ravinder Pahal as their new captain for the upcoming Pro Kabaddi 2022 season. Pahal was one of the new players signed by the Titans at this year’s PKL auction.

The Titans had a horrible season eight, where they finished last in the PKL points table, registering just one victory. Rohit Kumar and Siddharth Desai were members of the leadership group last season.

While the Telugu Titans still have Siddharth Desai in the team, they have opted to hand over the reins of the team to Ravinder Pahal. Announcing their new captain ahead of PKL 9, the Titans wrote on Instagram:

“Meeru anukunnadhi correct boss. Ravinder Pahal, AKA THE HAWK, is the captain of Telugu Titans this season.”

Pahal is one of the most successful defenders in Pro Kabaddi League history. Playing in the right corner, he scored 338 tackle points in 120 games. His average successful tackles per game is 2.82, while his success rate is 45%.

Fans must note that Pahal has recorded 23 High 5s in his PKL career so far. Nicknamed “The Hawk”, he also executed 19 super tackles.

Can Ravinder Pahal lead the Telugu Titans to their first ever PKL Championship?

Pahal has a ton of PKL experience under his belt, having been part of the competition since the inaugural season. He was the most successful defender in season two, but he didn’t have a great outing last season with the Gujarat Giants.

Due to fitness issues, Pahal was only able to play eight games for the Ahmedabad-based franchise, scoring 12 points. It will be interesting to see if he can stay fit throughout the 2022 Pro Kabaddi season and lead the Telugu Titans to their maiden championship.
