Haryana Steelers, owned by JSW Sports, will look to enhance their performance in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL 2018) sixth season after reaching the playoffs in their first appearance last year. Haryana Steelers grabbed the headlines after they bought Monu Goyat for a record-shattering fee of Rs 15.1 million in Pro Kabaddi League auctions. In the previous season, Monu Goyat played for Patna Pirates and excelled in the shadow of star raider Pardeep Narwal. However in auctions surprisingly he became the most expensive kabaddi player ever. Apart from Goyat, the Haryana did extremely well in auctions to regain the services of captain Surender Nada, and raiders Wazir Singh and Vikash Khandola who were among the top performers in PKL 2017. Nada was the top scoring defender with 80 tackle points. Meanwhile, Wazir had 104 raid points to his name. In defence, cover defender Sachin Shingade was the only marquee purchase as the team management decided to keep faith in youngsters to do the job.
