Pro Kabaddi League: Sonu Narwal powers Pink Panthers to 35-26 win over Telugu Titans
Patna: Sonu Narwal had outstanding support from the courageous allrounder Rajesh Narwal, who stuck to his job despite becoming injured, after receiving six stitches and returned. The Victor also lost Samarjeet Singh with a twisted knee, and they have to be expecting it is not quite as serious as the record of victims is rising daily. As it was realized in the absence of Jasvir Singh, this success is creditable, and it’d boost their morale.
The first half saw the victor leading 19-11 which was a reasonable indicator of the narrative that will unfold. Mohammad Maghsoudlou also chipped in with three as the victor scored an all out in the ninth minute.
Telugu Titans had anticipated a good deal from super star Rahul Chaudhari, but he was completely out of place. Perhaps another environment with different teammates after a difference of four days may have influenced him. It’s a fact that after Rahul gets trapped a few times he loses his composure and that’s what occurred today.
Sukesh Hegde, an associate of the national side, had limited success in the first half. He was trapped several times, and the Iranian Meraj Sheykh also wasn’t ineffective at all.
A spate of injuries shoved on the Jaipur Pink Panthers back marginally after they’d kept their impetus to stay ahead at 23-14 by the 26th minute. But with the Telugu Titans striving to make a match of it through an all out in the 28th minute the border was down to 18-23 and then 22-26 in the 32nd-minute courtesy Sukesh Hegde and Meraj Sheykh. The losers scored 10 points in a span of 11 minutes.
Jaipur Pink Panthers pulled away then, through Rajesh Narwal, who till that time had 11 empty raids out of 12 to show. He touched out Manoj Kumar and hit a flying kick on Vikas Kale to boost the lead. The stocky Rajesh came up with two vital tackles on Meraj Sheykh and Prashant Rai to employ the finishing touches as this wasn’t enough. At 32-22, the game was sealed in the 37th minute.
