Sandeep Kumar Dhull was born on the 10th February 1996 in the district of Kaithai in Haryana and belongs to the Jat family. Sandeep Kumar was passionate about Kabaddi from his childhood and stepped into the mat at the tender age of 10. From the very beginning, he was a very observant student and tried to learn as much as he could from his mentor Joginder Narwal. He was very much fond of Narwal’s ankle hold and found ways to master it and add it to his arsenal.
Sandeep Kumar is a graduate from Kurukshetra University. His coach, Shri Rajbir Singh was the one who identified Sandeep’s unique talent for swift movement and quick reflexes ideal for a defender. He trained him harder to make him the best player and motivated him through tough times like injuries.
His talent and performances at the college level took him to Junior National Indian Camp. From there he, later on, advanced and got selected to the Inter Senior National Indian Camp where he got to show his true potential in Kabaddi. Sandeep Kumar always stood as the youngest and the best-left corner defender whose performance brought the feeling of excitation in the game and also to the fans.

Sandeep Kumar Dhull began his campaign with Dabang Delhi K.C in Pro Kabaddi Season 3. He is a left-corner defender who has already cemented his place as one of the best left-corner defenders in the game.
Using his textbook tackling techniques, Dhull was able to achieve six Super tackles in Pro Kabaddi Season 3, most by any player in the season.
Even after an extraordinary performance in Season 4 where he scored 35 points from 12 matches. But his passion for Kabaddi retrieved his true potential and kept his name alive as one of the best-left corner defenders who put his heart and soul into his game. Although he did not play in Pro Kabaddi Season 5 because he went unsold at the auction but it didn’t stop Sandeep Kumar to work even harder and make a comeback.
He returned to Pro Kabaddi Season 6 with Jaipur Pink Panthers. The Pink Panthers bought him for Rs 66 lakhs which was among one of the highest amounts paid till then for a young left corner defender and was retained in Season 7.
In season 6, he earned 67 points out of 22 matches played. In Season 7 although he improved his performances and earned 74 points from 22 matches, he could not take the Panthers to the playoff stages.
