Kabaddi Teams. Also, Mr Salunke worked as Asst. Coach for Puneri Paltan in season 2
and Jaipur Pink Panther Team Jaipur in season 5. They have trained a lot of top players
and out of that Mr B.C. Ramesh and C. Honappa have gone on to receive Arjuna
Shashank Wankhede, arguably one of the best raider & defender will be the backbone
of the team marshalling the defence. He has the big match experience, having played
for teams like Bengal Warriors and Telugu Titans in the Pro Kabaddi League. The team

Police and were a key part of the gold medal-winning team in the All India Police

players have bonded well together and the team spirit is very high,”

board and we are confident that with them at the forefront the team will deliver their best
in the tournament”.

about the team’s prospects they jointly said “We have a very balanced side with
experienced players and newcomers who have shown a lot of promise in training. All
the players are fit and raring to go out and prove themselves”.

When asked about the shift from Pro Kabaddi to this league they further added, “We
have been fortunate to play under the management of Mumbai Che Raje. We have
been provided with all the top-notch facilities like Physios, Doctors, Dieticians, Masseurs
and Gym facilities and they have ensured every small need of ours was fulfilled
promptly. If all the teams get the same treatment that we have been getting it won’t be
long before we compete with Pro Kabaddi”.
