Prokabaddi Season 6, Match 23, Telugu Titans Vs. Patna Pirates Player of the Day – Vishal Bharadwaj (6 points)
Young left corner defender Vishal Bharadwaj led from the front as the Telugu Titans collected their third win of the season with a thrilling 35-31 win over the defending champions Patna Pirates at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune.
Captaining the team from the left corner, Vishal trumped over the Pirates’ raiders with a fabulous alliance along with Abozar Mighani, who also picked an important ‘High-5’ with his vicious tackles from the right corner.
Vishal’s primary calling card, the ankle hold was on display right through as the Titans skipper used his main weapon to effect a super tackle by bringing down Pardeep Narwal at the perfect time in the second half to tilt the scales in the Titans’ favour which ensured that the Titans cruised home comfortably in the end.
With six points from seven tackles including a decisive super tackle, Vishal was all smiles as the final whistle was blown and with his arms aloft, soaked in the atmosphere.
