Name: Abolfazl Maghsodlou

Team: Dabang Delhi K.C.

Position: Raider

The Ahmedabad leg of VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season 5 ended with a bang on Thursday as two thrillers were played out with the very last seconds deciding the outcome. The evening saw incredible individual performances from each team in action but the player who stood out the most was none other than Abolfazl Maghsodlou from Dabang Delhi K.C.

Maghsodlou was introduced in the second half as a support to captain Meraj Sheykh. However, in those few minutes, he picked up a mammoth tally of 11 points to end the match as Delhi’s top scorer. With Delhi’s back against the wall, his resolute composure proved to be the game-changer. Not only he picked up 9 points through raids but also got two tackle points.

Maghsodlou was the initiator of Delhi’s first super tackle of the match that saw them narrow the gap, while his quick bonuses were a clear indication of how well he uses his height and reflexes. Though Sheykh’s last-minute super raid was the moment of the match, the fightback and the eventual 30-29 win would not have been possible without his fellow Iranian.
