VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season VI marked an unprecedented fourth straight campaign where Patna Pirates captain Pardeep Narwal finished among the league’s top two point-scorers, a feat no other player has achieved more than twice.
The Dubki King was dominant throughout Season VI and floored oppositions with his raiding prowess consistently over the course of the campaign, even breaking some records en route to another historic season. Here’s a look at some of the impressive records that Pardeep broke in VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season VI:
Since the inception of the league, Tamil Thalaivas raider Rahul Chaudhari had been the trendsetter for raid point milestones, however, that changed in Season VI as Pardeep beat his compatriot to the 850-raid point mark and is currently the only player to have achieved the feat. Pardeep currently has 858 raid points in 85 matches at a staggering average of 10.21 points per game and is also one of only two players, alongside Siddharth Desai, to average over 10 raid points a game in the league’s history.
After finishing Season VI with 233 raid points, Pardeep became only the second player in VIVO Pro Kabaddi’s history to score 200 raid points in back-to-back campaigns alongside Tamil Thalaivas’ Ajay Thakur. Both Pardeep and Thakur have achieved this feat over the last two campaigns, however, the Patna Pirates ace remains the only raider in league history to have multiple campaigns with ten or more Super 10s.
Speaking of Super 10s, Pardeep led the league in that category for the third time in the past four seasons, making him the only player in history to do it more than twice. His 15 Super 10s in Season VI are the second-most in a single VIVO Pro Kabaddi campaign and were enough to earn him his second-straight Best Raider Award. With this win, Pardeep joined Rahul Chaudhari as the only players to win the award multiple times.
Against the Puneri Paltan in Vizag, Pardeep had his most prolific game of the season, scoring 27 points, the most by a player in VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season VI. This was the seventh time that Pardeep managed over 20 points in a single match, which also includes his 34-point performance in Season V which to this day remains the record for the most points scored by a player in a single game in VIVO Pro Kabaddi history. While eight other players have managed to score 20 or more raid points in a single match in VIVO Pro Kabaddi, seven of those have done it only once, with only Pawan Kumar Sehrawat achieving the feat multiple times, doing it thrice.
