The Pink Panthers roll past Steelers without breaking a sweat !

Match No. 18 between Haryana Steelers and Jaipur Pink Panthers started with a bang at the SVP stadium, Mumbai, with the crowd going wild with enthusiasm as they were witnessing one of the last few matches of the Mumbai Leg. The head to head between these teams in the last 5 encounters was 3-2 with the Pink Panthers in the lead. But due to their head to head being almost neck to neck, it was hard to tell which team would have the upper hand in terms of performance and that added up to the spectators' excitement even more!

How Jaipur Pink Panthers won the Match with Haryana Steelers - 5 Reasons Why

1. Again, the Jaipur corners combined well. Sandeep Dhull with his ankle holds and diving holds completely took Naveen out of the game.
2. The failure of their lead raider completely affected Haryana with Selvamani not being able to fill the void, despite of starting well with some toe touches on the fantastic Dhull.
3. Tight defending by Panthers, when the match was close and Vishal doubling up in corner when Dhull was off the mat.
4. Vikas Kale had an off day. Got touched and wasn't able to put in relevant tackles.
5. Deepak Niwas Hooda was almost unstoppable after he figured out what the defence had planned against him.


Unbeaten Panthers take comfortable lead in the race to the title by beating helpless Steelers.

Jaipur was unbeaten entering the contest and that confidence showed in their approach clearly as they took control over the first half. With successful tackles and raids, the Panthers were inching ahead. However, the Haryana defenders made sure they were closing in on the gap. Heading into the 2nd half, the scores were 8-13 with Haryana struggling to make an impact. Coming to play post the interval, there was no looking back for Jaipur as they refused to let go of their monster grip over the Steelers. Couple of all-outs from their focused players just made it impossible for Haryana to make a comeback. The Pink Panthers rallied on to completely destroy the opposition with a final score of 37-21 to remain unbeaten in the competition.
Jaipur Pink Panthers Captain Deepak Hooda was the star performer of the match with 14 points.
