The Pro Kabaddi League will return to television screens and the mat on December 22nd after a two-year break. The competition will not be hosted in different cities this year, unlike past years. The entire league will be held in Bengaluru, with the players enclosed in a bio-bubble and no fans permitted in the stadium. With the league set to run two months rather than three, squad depth, rotations, and injury management will be far more important this time around. The PKL has been a very competitive league in its past seven versions, with no team other than Patna Pirates winning the title more than once. Furthermore, each of the last three seasons has had a different winner.
Season 8 of the Pro Kabaddi League will begin on December 22nd, 2021. On the Star Sports network and Disney+ Hotstar, fans can now watch their favourite kabaddi stars compete LIVE. The multi-city setting is being stayed away from for the eighth period of PKL 2021 due to the COVID-19 limitation.
The Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel and Convention Center will organize all Pro Kabaddi League 2021 Season 8 league matches without any people participating.
Government-mandated COVID-19 insurance rules will likewise be followed, and specific offices have been utilized for wellbeing and upholding the essential cleanliness all through the association. A bio secure air pocket will be maintained throughout the season, and extensive testing will be performed to ensure the highest level of safety.
Starting 7 Predictions of Jaipur Pink Panther:
The Jaipur Pink Panthers, the initial PKL winners, are on the verge of a return. Abhishek Bachchan owns the squad, which is one of the most popular in the Pro Kabaddi League.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers dominated the first half of Pro Kabaddi Season 7, winning seven of ten matches and controlling the rankings for a lengthy period of time. However, injuries and illnesses to a few key players disrupted their campaign. The Panthers were only able to win two of the final 12 games, falling short of making the playoffs for the third straight season.
At the Pro Kabaddi Auction 2021, the Jaipur Pink Panthers were able to retain key players of their PKL Season 7 roster. Deepak Niwas Hooda and Sandeep Dhull were added to the retained core of Amit Hooda, Vishal Lather, and Nitin Rawal at the auction utilizing the Final Bid Match (FBM) card.
Arjun Deshwal, a former U Mumba raider who had a fantastic season in the PKL Season 7, was the Panthers’ most notable signing. The Panthers also underwent a management change, with former U Mumba head coach Sanjeev Baliyan taking over for Srinivas Reddy.
Gujarat signed a few senior players at the PKL Auction 2021, and here’s a look at them.

Starting 7 Predictions of Bengal Warriors:
Bengal Warriors, the league champions, will began their Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2021 campaign on December 22 against the Nitesh Kumar-led UP Yoddha group. The Kolkata-based establishment won their maiden Pro Kabaddi League title in 2019 by beating Dabang Delhi KC in the last.
The Bengal Warriors had big names like Maninder Singh, Mohammad Esmaeil Nabibakhsh, and Rinku Narwal from their PKL 7 squad in their lineup for the eighth season. However during Pro Kabaddi League 2021 auction, the defending champions signed some seasoned players as well as some young talent. As the Warriors start preparing to compete in PKL 8, here is a glance at their predicted starting squad:
- Centre – Maninder Singh
- Right Corner – Abozar Mighani
- Left Corner – Rinku Narwal
- Right in – Esmaeil Nabibaksh
- Left in – Sukesh Hegde
- Right Cover – Darshan J
- Left Cover – Parveen
Baldev Singh’s departure from the Bengal Warriors raised some eyebrows. Last year, Baldev was the team’s best defender as they won the PKL. For the eighth season, the Warriors have signed Iranian star Abozar Mighani as their right-corner defender. Mighani, a back hold expert, is one of the world’s best right-corner defenders, with 160 PKL tackle points. When he dons the Bengal Warriors jersey, he’ll be hoping to make a big impact.
Bengal Warriors Squad:
Raiders: Maninder Singh, Rishank Devadiga, Sukesh Hegde, Ravindra Kumavat, Anand V, Akash Pikalmunde
Defenders: Vijin Thangadurai, Amit Nirwal, Abozar Mighani, Rinku Narwal, Darshan J, Sachin Vittala, Parveen Satpal, Rohit Banne
All – Rounders: Tapas Pal, Mohammad Nabibakhsh, Rohit, Manoj Gowda
Team Information for the Bengal Warriors:
