In vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9, having two players capable of scoring raid points consistently was needed to be a successful team as putting too much pressure on any one individual doesn’t leave much chance for error. With that in mind, teams had a couple of players who were capable of scoring raid points in the starting 7.
Having said that, let’s have a look at the top raiding pairs in vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9.
Bharat and Vikash Kandola (Bengaluru Bulls)
Bharat was a bankable choice in raiding for Bengaluru Bulls. Bharat was superb with his raids and was the best raider for his side with 279 raid points.

Naveen Kumar and Ashu Malik (Dabang Delhi K.C)
