However, he injured his knee in the very first match for the Thalaivas and was ruled out for the entire season and needed a surgery. Tamil Thalaivas eventually decided against retaining the 27-year-old.

Pawan finished season 8 of the PKL with a whopping 314 raid points, including 18 super-10s.

Earlier this month, India led by Pawan, eked out a close 33-29 win against Iran in the Asian Games 2023 men’s kabaddi final to win the gold medal.
