Puneri Paltan PKL 2022: Squad, Players List and Schedule for Pro Kabaddi League Season 9

Puneri Paltan will look to better their sixth place finish from season 8 and go all the way in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) season 9 with the addition of experienced Iranian duo to their young squad.

Aiming for their first title, Paltan have opted for title-winning coach in the form of BC Ramesh, who led Bengal Warriors to the PKL crown in season 7 and also title-winning players Fazel Atrachali and Mohammad Nabibakhsh.

The Iranians, who come in with immense experience, moved on from U Mumba and Bengal Warriors with the management paying a whopping amount to bag the duo. The left-corner Atrachali was bought at ₹1.38 crores whereas the all-rounder Nabibakhsh was added at ₹87 lakhs.

Before the auction, Puneri Paltan had retained and drafted in 11 players, but retained none of their elite players, opting instead for the youngsters, who did well last season.

The Paltan had retained the rising raid duo of Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat alongside the young defenders in Sombir, Sanket Sawant and Abinesh Nadarajan. The Pune side also retained Pankaj Mohite, who will provide excellent cover in the raiding department.

Puneri Paltan, who have finished four of the eight seasons in the playoff or semifinal spots since their PKL debut in 2014, will open their season 9 campaign against three-time champions Patna Pirates on October 8.

Here is a look at the Puneri Paltan PKL 2022 Squad, Players List, Best Starting Seven and Schedule:
