Player of the day – Abhishek Singh, Match Number 46, U Mumba Vs. Puneri Paltan (7 points)

 

Young Abhishek Singh was in fine touch in the Maharashtrian Derby as his clever raids fetched him seven raid points that ensured that U Mumba won 31-22 against the Puneri Paltan at Greater Noida, UP.

In the absence of Siddharth Desai, who has been U Mumba’s top-scorer, Abhishek Singh was entrusted with the raiding duties and the youngster did not disappoint, as he collected seven points and was tackled only on two occasions.

With Pune picking consistent super tackle points, Abhishek was also responsible for breaking Pune;s momentum as he powered through a dash from Sandeep Narwal and GB More to pick two important points, that ultimately led to an all-out on Pune.
