Rahul Chaudhari to play for pride against Fazel Atrachali and Mumba defence
Rahul Chaudhari is second in the all-time list of leading raid point scorers with 942 raid points. But PKL 2019 has perhaps been his most disappointing season in PKL and with his team already eliminated will have nothing but personal glory to go for. He will be up against two of the top 5 defenders in PKL – Fazel Atrachali and Sandeep Narwal – both of whom are aiming to cross the 300 tackle point mark.

PKL 7 has been one of the most disappointing seasons in Rahul Chaudhari’s career. Initially it was just the fact that his performances have been below his own previous highs. But in the last few games, he has to deal with his younger teammate outperforming him.
