Pawan Kumar Sehrawat was the name on everyone’s lips last season as he led Bengaluru Bulls to their maiden VIVO Pro Kabaddi title, scoring a season-high 282 points from 24 matches and winning the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in the process. Showcasing explosive acceleration and astonishing agility, ‘Hi-Flyer’ Pawan Sehrawat left opposition defenders chasing his shadow throughout Season 6.
His ascent to the pinnacle of VIVO Pro Kabaddi, however, has taken much time and effort. Having begun his career with Bengaluru Bulls in Season 3, Sehrawat finished as the team's leading raid-point-scorer with 45 points in his debut campaign.
He decided to opt for a fresh challenge with Gujarat Fortunegiants in Season 5 and mostly found himself coming off the bench as an impact raider. The raider then returned to Bengaluru Bulls ahead of Season 6 and the rest, as they say, is history.
Sehrawat took VIVO Pro Kabaddi by storm in Season 6, firmly establishing himself as Bengaluru Bulls' top raider. Armed with every raiding move in the book, Sehrawat is unpredictable on the mat and his flamboyant style made him a fan-favourite. He completed 12 Super Raids and scored 13 Super 10s in the season.
A big-match player, Sehrawat has the ability to almost singlehandedly win matches in crunch situations, showcased by his 13 raid points in Qualifier 1 and 22 in the final last season. Still just 24, the Bengaluru Bulls man is the perfect example of the new generation of stars taking VIVO Pro Kabaddi by storm. With Season 7 upon us, expect some more scintillating displays from the one and only Hi-Flyer.
