An all-round performance from young Nitin Rawal highlighted the Jaipur Pink Panthers’ 33-36 win over the hosts Haryana Steelers at the Motilal Nehru Sports School in Sonipat, Haryana.

Rawal, who came into the game at the back of a good show against U Mumba was expected to fire and that is exactly what transpired as Rawal contributed in both departments to lead his team to their first victory of the season.

The all-rounder’s terrific show overshadowed a good show from Deepak Niwas Hooda and Anup Kumar, who both picked six points but were made to watch from the sidelines as Rawal made the Steelers’ sweat with each of his raids and vicious tackles.

Apart from a super raid, Rawal was also involved in a super tackle in the game that underlined his efficiency as a utility player in the squad. At the end of the game, Rawal finished with 11 points, 8 raid points and 3 tackle points as he received a warm embrace from skipper Anup Kumar at the end of the game, in a hope to see the youngster perform even better in the near future.
