Puneri Paltan would be at least looking to match their streak of reaching the playoffs in the sixth season of Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2018. They’ve been in the playoffs for three straight seasons and were in Zone A table last season. The team will be captained by Girish Ernak while the raiding responsibilites lie on Nitin Tomar in the absence of Deepak Hooda. Paltan have also held on to Rajesh Mondal for another season and could well be the
difference maker in the latter stages of the tournament. He has the second highest do or die raid points (119 DoD Raid Pts) in the PKL history. Defensively, Ernak will have the support of the third most tackle point collector Sandeep Narwal.
