It all started with the Iranian defender Fazel Atrachali breaching the Rs 1 Cr-mark, as he was lapped up by U Mumba. It seemed that this is a record breaking buy in PKL history and things would not stretch any further, but we were fools to believe that. Five more players joined the league of Crorepatis including, the poster boy of Indian Kabaddi team, Rahul Chaudhary (1.29 Cr), the others were Nitin Tomar (1.15 cr), Deepak Nivas Hooda (1.15 cr) and Rishank Devadiga (1.11 cr). The last but not the least, Monu Goyat became the costliest buy ever in the PKL history. He got sold to Haryana Steelers for an astounding Rs 1.51 Cr.
