Life before Pro Kabaddi League
Ankush Rathee, a 22-year-old Chandigarh native and kabaddi player, is from Chandigarh. He is a left-handed defender who is renowned for having an iron-clad grip. There is no way to escape from either an ankle hold or a thigh hold once he has applied them.
He reportedly used to play for ONGC before being discovered and acquired by Jaipur Pink Panthers. Ankush even played for the Chandigarh team in the Junior Nationals, finishing as the competition’s third-best defender. He then became the defender with the most tackle points in Senior Nationals.
