ABOUT HARISH NAIK:
Namma local raider, Harish Naik hails from Bhatkal, Karnataka. 20-year-old Harish was always interested in sports and initially tried his hand at cricket. Although he was a good fast bowler, it was on his uncle’s recommendation that the 15-year-old decided to try his hand at kabaddi; thereafter there was no looking back for Harish. Within 3 years he had already played his first senior game for Karnataka and at the age of 17 he made his debut for PKL with Bengaluru Bulls. In 2017, Harish was also a part of team Karnataka that won a bronze in the senior nationals.
As a raider, his strength is the hand touch. Harish is known to provide breakthroughs in tough situations and can be quite handy as a second raider. He perfectly demonstrated his skills in a match against Bengal Warriors in Season 5 where he scored a staggering 10 points and took home the award for the perfect raider of the match.
