The Pro Kabaddi League, abbreviated to PKL, is an Indian men's professional Kabaddi league that was launched in 2014. The popularity of kabaddi at the 2006 Asian Games inspired the league's inception.

It caught the attention of rural and metropolitan viewers alike, given that the sport is practiced in every nook and cranny of our country at the grassroot level. It follows the regular double-round-robin format from the 2019 season. Let us take a look at the all-time stats and certain stars of the league:

Successful Raids:

The Pro Kabaddi League would be incomplete without the "dubki king," Pradeep Narwal. He tops five out of the 11 all-time stat tables and is the league's leading raider in both numbers and points, and holds the record for most Super 10s too.

He was the first to cross the 1,000-point milestone in the league during Season 7 of the PKL. The Haryana based raider has appeared regularly for the Indian Kabaddi team in international tournaments since 2016, and is an integral member of the same.

Raid Points:

Another name echoes in the record books right after Pradeep Narwal. The Punjab based Maninder Singh stands second table-wise despite his 3-year absence from the league.

His statistics speak for themselves: a dream start to the PKL as the best raider on the inaugural champion team, the Jaipur Pink Panthers, the fastest raider to 500 points, and numerous other records to his name. He proved his mettle again by leading the Bengal Warriors to their maiden title during Season 7 of the PKL.
