early life

Pardeep Narwal, aka Dubki King, is an Indian Kabaddi player who was born on 16 February 1997 in a Hindu farming family in Rindhana, a small village in Sonepat district of Haryana. His father’s name is Mr. Dharambir Narwal and mother’s name is Smt. Birmati Devi.

Kabaddi career

He was just seven years old when his uncle Ravindra Narwal introduced him to the sport of Kabaddi. At the age of eight, Pradeep chose his passion for kabaddi for his school’s under-11 kabaddi team. 

He joined the Haryana Kabaddi Academy at the age of twelve under the tutelage of Naresh Narwal and learned all the basics of Kabaddi from him, especially the ‘Dive.’ A boy who was shy to play Kabaddi, Pardeep would become the most aggressive raider in the Pro Kabaddi League. 

Narwal made his VIVO Pro Kabaddi debut in Season 2 against Patna Pirates against Bengaluru Bulls and made six appearances in that campaign, scoring a total of nine raid points.

Narwal moved to Patna Pirates in season 3 and became one of the best raiders in the league. He scored his first career Super 10 in Pirates’ 29–25 win over Kolkata’s Puneri Paltan, where he led both sides with 11 points on the night, along with Rohit Kumar, Narwal formed the league’s most potent raiding duo. Kumar scored 102 in 12 matches and Narwal 92 in 14 matches to collect 194 red points in the league stage of the campaign. 

Narwal scored his fifth Super 10 of the season against Puneri Paltan in the semi-final but missed the final due to injury. Pirates, however, defeated U Mumba’s defense by a score of 31–28 to clinch their first VIVO Pro Kabaddi title.

After Rohit Kumar’s departure to Bengaluru Bulls, Pardeep took over as Pirates’ chief raider and enjoyed another sensational campaign, scoring 107 raid points in 14 league stage matches including four Super 10s, the first of which came in a 36–36 draw.

A 34-run win over U Mumba in Jaipur, where the Raiders scored a match-high 18 points. Narwal continued to bear the brunt of the uphill battle in the playoffs and scored eight points in an easy 37-33 win over Pirates’ Puneri Paltan in the semi-finals to take them to their second-straight VIVO Pro Kabaddi final. In the final against the Jaipur Pink Panthers, Narwal scored a brilliant 16-point performance to lead the Pirates to a 37–29 win and their second VIVO Pro Kabaddi title and second consecutive VIVO Pro Kabaddi title.

Narwal’s third season with the Pirates was the best in the history of VIVO Pro Kabaddi, as the raider scored 369 raid points and led the league in every raid category. 

Narwal scored Super 10s in 19 of the 26 matches he played in that campaign, with one in each of Patna Pirates’ first three matches. He made only one appearance in the next four matches but after that relatively lean patch, he played eight consecutive matches with the Super 10s, eventually ending against Tamil Thalaivas, falling just one point short of 10 red points. .

After finishing second in Zone B, Narwal and the Pirates faced the Haryana Steelers in the playoffs, where the raider scored, a VIVO Pro Kabaddi record, 34 raid points including an eight-point raid, as the Pirates defeated the Steelers 69-.

30. In Eliminator 3, Narwal again led by example by scoring 19 raid points in his team’s 42–32 win over Puneri Paltan. 

In Qualifier 2, Narwal scored 23 raid points in his team’s narrow 47–44 win against Bengal Warriors, helping Pirates reach their third consecutive VIVO Pro Kabaddi final. Narwal continued his incredible form in the final, scoring 19 raid points against Gujarat Fortunegiants to lead the Pirates to a 55-38 win and their third consecutive VIVO Pro Kabaddi title.

Narwal scored a Super 10 in each of his side’s first three matches of Season 6 before falling short against Telugu Titans. Narwal saw a similar trend in the next four matches as he scored three consecutive Super 10s before failing to do so against the same opposition in Patna. 

Narwhal continued to produce quality performances but Pirates struggled for form in the latter stages of the season and needed a big finish to their campaign to retain any chance of qualifying for the playoffs. Narwal scored three Super 10 runs in Pirates’ final five matches of the season but the team failed to register a single win and were eliminated in the league stage of the campaign for the first time in franchise history.

In Season 7, Narwal got off to a slow start, but still became the first player to reach the 1,000-point mark in the PKL. Pardeep Narwal has been playing regularly for the Indian Kabaddi team since 2016 and has won gold medals in three of the four tournaments he has played.

The beginning of the journey 

Pardeep started his career by participating in local competitions in his district. Ram Mehr Singh, head coach of Seva and Air Force teams, saw Pardeep’s performance and guided him to play for the national team. Pardeep represented the Air Force in the national competition and won the title. 

Pro Kabaddi debut

In 2015, Pardeep Narwal made his debut as a raider for Bengaluru Bulls in the second season of the PKL; Led by Asian Games gold medalist Manjit Chhillar, the Bulls had phenomenal attackers like Ajay Thakur and Rajesh Mondal. 

Undermining young talent, Pardeep was barely brought on the mat and didn’t get much chance to showcase his skills, spending most of his time on the bench.

He played 6 matches in PKL II and managed to score 9 raiding points (1 Super Raid), but in the third PKL season he became a sensational player and scored 121 raid points for Patna Pirates.

Patna Pirates had the ball in his court in season 3 which really helped him develop his potential and he blossomed into the superstar raider he is today. 

Along with Rohit Kumar, he performed brilliantly throughout the season and led Patna Pirates to the Vivo Pro Kabaddi title against defending champions U Mumba. 

He finished the season as the Alliance’s leading scorer with 121 red points. However, he adjudged Rishank Devadiga as ‘Best Raider’ and partner Rohit Kumar as ‘Most Valuable Player’.
