- Vikash Khandola – INR 1.7 Cr – Bengaluru Bulls
for this season we will see Vikash Khandola in a bulls jersey. as Bengaluru Bulls spent Rs 1.7 Cr for this young talented raider. Vikash Khandola is the 2nd highest-paid kabaddi player in the history of Pro Kabaddi. as Bengaluru bulls know that Pawan’s Bidding amount will go above 2 Cr. it would be difficult for them to make a balanced team after remained purse amount. so Randhir Singh Sehrawat bought Vikash instead of Pawan.
Vikash is one of the best skillfully raiders in kabaddi. in the previous seasons, he handled the Haryana Steelers’ raiding department strongly. it would be interesting to see how he will perform under Randhir Singh Sehrawat

Sultan of kabaddi Iranian Fazel Atrachali sold to Puneri Platan for INR Rs. 1.38 Cr. As puneri Paltan have star raiders Aslam Inamdar, Mohit Goyat, Pankaj Mohite, and Akash Shinde they were looking for Defenders in the auction. so they bought Fazel for 2 reasons. first, he is one of the best corners in the world and second all the other players are young so they need some experienced players to handle the team. after buying Fazel Pune has both strong corners Fazel & Sombir.

- Guman Singh – INR 1.21 Cr – U Mumba
It came as a little surprise that guman Singh got a huge amount of 1.215 crores by U Mumba. He has not performed so well in the previous seasons. while playing for Patna pirates in season 8 he has just scored 97 points which are below average performance. But U MUMBA thought some other way. We can just hope that guman Singh will do his best in the upcoming season 9 and prove he prize-worthy.

- Pardeep Narwal – INR 90 L – UP Yoddha
The most successful raider of the PKL history Pradeep Narwal could not even manage to get the amount he got in the previous season. In the previous season, he was bought by up yoddhas for 1.65 crores which was the highest price for a player at that time, but in this season he got a price of 90 lakhs. Up yoddhas bought him for this price by using FBM*.
This decrement was due to his bad form in season 8. He scores 188 points in season 8 which is low according to his standard. We will see him playing for UP yoddhas again this season and hope that he will come back stronger, perform well and get a much more amount in the next season.
