Player of the Day – Deepak Niwas Hooda, Jaipur Pink Panthers Vs. Haryana Steelers, Match Number 50 – (12 points)

 

Deepak Hooda’s first ‘Super-10’ of the season, incidentally the first ‘Super-10’ for the Jaipur Pink Panthers this season lifted the inaugural champions to a 38-32 win over the Haryana Steelers at Greater Noida, UP.

Coming into this game, the Panthers faced a huge task of arresting the spate of losses that has rocked their campaign this season. Thankfully for the Anup Kumar-led side, Deepak Hooda brought out his bag of tricks as his pacy raids kept the Steelers defenders on their toes and picked 12 points.

In the end, the Panthers held on to their lead as they closed out a comfortable win to win their first game after four losses in a row.
