Hailing from Kerala, the tall raider primarily uses his pace and sudden changes in direction to his advantage. It’s with these skills he fit well in the Tamil Thalaivas squad in his debut VIVO Pro Kabaddi season where he impressed in his debut match. He has performed exceptionally as back-up raider and usually comes off the bench to score vital points for his team. Athul is steadily stepping up the ranks under the eye of seniors like Ajay Thakur and Jasvir Singh.
As a substitute, he scored 7 points in his debut match, second only to Ajay Thakur.
After the first six matches, he was the second highest raid points scorer for Tamil Thalaivas, only behind Ajay Thakur.
Athul was a member of the Senior State Championship in 2016.
