NAVEEN KUMAR ON TOP OF THE CHARTS IN PKL 7
Delhi’s Naveen Kumar, a 19-year0old, seems to have taken his game to a new level in Pro kabaddi 2019. Still an NYP, Naveen Kumar has already scored 31 raid points and is the joint-top raid point scorer at the moment along with Deepak Hooda. Naveen Kumar scored 172 raid points in his debut season last year, but at his current rate, will easily cross that total. He is averaging more than 10 raid points per game. It was only against Tamil Thalaivas (7 raid points) that he failed to get a Super 10. While he got 13 of his raid points deep in the left corner, he has managed to score across the mat using his speed and footwork.
