Speaking exclusively on Star Sports Show ‘TOTAL KBG – Auction Special’, former India captain and kabaddi legend Anoop Kumar believes that the captaincy band needs to be removed from Fazil., “Fazl’s performance has been adversely affected by the captaincy role. Take the captaincy off him and he will be a much better player who can focus on his game and win matches for his team.

Three-time champions Patna Pirates and Season 8 runners-up released Sachin Tanwar. The 23-year-old raider is turning into a proven match-winner and game-changer in the PKL. His ability to turn the game on its head for Patna Pirates earned Anoop Kumar praise.

“Sachin is a cool player who values ​​his performance above all else. He brings a lot of confidence and support to his team as he has scored more than 150 runs three times in the last four seasons,” said the former India captain. said

Meanwhile, Haryana Steelers did not retain one of their biggest superstars – Vikas Kandola. Anup Kumar is considered a master of high-pressure situations, with a knack for winning games at the end.

“Vikas Kandola is a game changer. The number of times he has changed the outcome of games in the last season is a testament to his performance. He is also a great defender,” said the kabaddi legend.

Many of Vikas’ spectacular performances have come in the last 10 minutes of games, making him the best buy for any franchise in this year’s PKL.
