Puneri Paltan

  • Top Signing

Iran’s top performer, Mohammadreza Shadlou. The fact that he was the center of attention during the auction and that he could defend and raid flawlessly justifies his asking price of 2.31 crore. In the annals of the PKL, he commands the highest foreign player fee.

Great job getting Shadlou to join this incredibly talented young team, but they will need to swiftly find a leader because they suffered without Fazel last year.

Tamil Thalaivas

  • Top Signing: 

Amirhossein Bastami.a standout right corner defender for Iran at the Asian Games, where they took home silver. But where does young Sagar go if he plays right corner?

The team has added one intriguing raider and two good defensive players, but it is still missing a major leaguer. The youth will still be expected to excel.
