No matter how skilled the soldiers are, a battle fought without proper direction and guidance is a battle lost. As Vivo ProKabaddi League 2018 knocks at the door, the skilled Yoddha battalion also needed those leaders to guide them through the challenging opponents, and the difficult games. Our selectors had a vision about it already, as they appoint Rishank Devadiga as the captain of the team and Jeeva Kumar as his deputy.

These two are perfect definitions to passion, consistency and experience, which make them the pillars of their own contingent in the team. Rishank is undoubtedly the most accomplished raider in the Yoddha squad, having made appearances in all five seasons so far, Rishank has gathered 490 points from 80 matches.

Our deputy Jeeva is the veteran wise owl among the defenders. Just like Rishank, Jeeva has also played in all the previous seasons of PKL, 74 matches to be exact, and has gathered 156 points.

With a young and bright team at our disposal, UP Yoddha are all ready to set the mat on fire in the sixth edition of Vivo ProKabaddi!
