Defending Efficiency:
Best at Successful defensive actions and defensive duels in the league. These are elite stats for a fantastic CB

Ball Progression:
One of the best at progressing the ball in CBs. Not just with passing but also carrying the ball out of defence. Fantastic asset for playing out of the back

Aerial vs Ground duels:
Fantastic at both aerial and ground duels. Hard to find CBs who can do both with great effect. Fantastic stat which brings stability and reliability in both aspects. Rare in Indian CBs.

Defending space vs Ball:
Laldinpuia almost exclusively prefers to defend space. He looks to the intercept the ball a lot more and play in spaces to stop players from passing in gaps rather than charge the players down and over commit.
