Full Name: Parvesh Bhainswal
Date of Birth: 12th April 1997
Team: Gujarat Giants
Parvesh Bhainswal is an Indian Kabaddi player who currently plays for the Gujarat Fortune Giants in the Pro Kabaddi league. Parvesh was born on April 12, 1997, in the town of Bhainswal, which has a history of producing top-level athletes.
His older brothers played for their school’s Kabaddi team, which inspired him to develop a strong passion for the sport from a young age. Parvesh was a teenager when he realized he had the potential to play Kabaddi professionally in the future. As a result, he competed in the U-14 nationals as well as the school nationals. Bhupender Malik, his coach, was impressed with how this young defender was performing.
While competing in the University Nationals, Parvesh caught Jaivir Sharma’s attention. Sharma, a coach at the Sports Authority of India in Gandhinagar, got Parvesh admitted to the facility to help develop his game.
Parvesh was born into a middle-class farming family in Howrah, West Bengal, India. He fell in love with the sport at a young age after watching his older brothers compete in district tournaments for their school. Parvesh began playing the sport on local fields with his brothers and friends.
As a teenager, he was encouraged and advised to pursue professional training for the sport due to his high strength and defending abilities. Soon after, he began training with Coach Bhupender Malik. He gained national attention after awe-inspiring everyone with his defending abilities at University Nationals. Simultaneously, he was selected for Haryana’s state kabaddi team to compete in national tournaments. Finally, in 2016, he was chosen to compete in the fourth season of the PKL.
Collaboration with Sunil Kumar, a cousin
Throughout their lives, Parvesh and his cousin Sunil Kumar have been extremely supportive of one another’s success. Parvesh and Sunil have been through every major life stage together. They finished school together and were both accepted into the same university team. Their coach was so impressed by their mutual understanding that he assigned them to the position of covers, which is a critical position that requires a great deal of understanding. Sunil’s journey mirrors Parvesh’s.
However, both of them were selected for the fourth season of the PKL. Sunil was chosen by the Patna Pirates, while Parvesh was chosen by the Jaipur Pink Panthers. They didn’t have a great season because they didn’t have each other’s support. However, both were signed by the Gujarat Fortune Giants in season 5. They contributed 108 tackle points to their team’s total and led them to the final in their first season. They have almost spent every minute of their lives together and have made it to the highest level of the sport together, and they hope to do the same in their bright future.
Parvesh Bhainswal Pro Kabaddi Career:
His heroics in winning two back-to-back university national titles earned him a spot in the Jaipur Pink Panthers for Pro Kabaddi Season 4. However, young Parvesh had a forgettable debut, scoring only three points in seven games this season. After only one season with the team, he was let go.
Parvesh was selected by Gujarat Fortune Giants at the Pro Kabaddi Season 5 Auctions after their coach Manpreet Singh was impressed with the player’s skill set at a national level tournament. Sunil Kumar, Parvesh’s cousin, was also picked up by the team, and the two were part of the young team that was set to make its league debut. The stories of the two defenders tackling raiders were already making waves, and it was time for them to shine on the PKL stage.
Parvesh and Sunil were key players in Gujarat’s first-ever PKL run to the finals. Parvesh made his debut on the stage after scoring 48 tackle points in 24 matches. Gujarat’s defence appeared to be in good hands, with Sunil, Abozar Mighani, and Fazel Atrachali on board. The team also signed Parvesh for the following season.
Parvesh improved his game significantly in PKL Season 6 and finished as the league’s second-best defender, trailing only Nitesh Kumar. He scored 86 points in 25 games and was an important member of the team as they advanced to the finals for the second year in a row. Parvesh’s performance in Pro Kabaddi 2018 earned him the title of Gujarat Fortune Giants’ highest-paid player, with the team paying him Rs. 75 lakh for his services. Gujarat ensured that their top defender would remain with the team for the next season by using the Final Bid Match (FBM) card during the auctions.
Parvesh lived up to expectations, scoring the most points for the team yet again. In 22 games, he had 55 tackle points.
