Pardeep Narwal has created another record in the Pro Kabaddi League by becoming the first raider to reach the 1500 raid point milestone in tournament history. Narwal accomplished the feat while playing for UP Yoddhas earlier tonight (November 21) against the Gujarat Giants.

UP Yoddhas locked horns with the Gujarat giants in Game 93 of Pro Kabaddi 2022 at the Gachibowli indoor stadium in Hyderabad. The Yoddhas secured a 35-31 win in the match, with skipper Pardeep Narwal leading his side from the front.

Prior to the game against Gujarat Giants, Narwal had a total of 1495 raid points in his career. The Record Breaker was in excellent touch against the Giants as he scored nine raid points in the contest. He scored seven touch points while the other two were bonus points.

When Narwal scored his fifth raid point against Gujarat Giants, he completed 1500 raid points in the league. The Record Breaker has been the number one raider in the tournament for quite some time now, and it seems very unlikely that he will lose his top spot in the near future.

Can Pardeep Narwal lead UP Yoddhas to their first ever Pro Kabaddi League Championship?

UP Yoddhas have been part of the Pro Kabaddi League since the 2017 season but they have never won the title. The team has qualified for the playoffs in all editions of the competition, but has always fallen short of the championship.

Pardeep Narwal is a former three-time PKL winner. He won the competition twice with Patna Pirates without a captain, while in season five he led the Pirates to their third title.

Narwal is currently the captain of UP Yoddhas. The Uttar Pradesh-based franchise has nearly sealed a spot in the PKL 2022 playoffs. It will be interesting to see if they can end their title drought this year.
