U Mumba arrived, it was not the night meant for big names from Jaipur Pink Panthers stable
The star performer from the U Mumba side Siddharth Desai started the raid and scored a bonus in the first raid, that's the statement he made in front of all the Pink Panthers stalwart on the mat. This phenomenon from Maharashtra will rule prokabaddi season 6. Though later Jaipur Pink Panthers were able to keep Siddharth Desai away from the mat for about 8 minutes and that was time when they were leading and inflicted the first all-out in the 10th minute. But In the absence of Siddharth Desai it was Rohit Baliyan who kept the score moving for U Mumba.
It was a disappointing for Jaipur Pink Panthers as they could not take forward the healthy first half advantage. In the first half Jaipur Pinkpanthers defense worked in tandem and scored seven tackle points as Mohit Chhillar and Sandeep Dhull showed some brilliant tackle skills, at the half time score was 13 - 15 with Jaipur in lead.
It was the second half when U Mumba bounced back, Siddharth Desai 2 point raid in the 25th minute and organized defense of U Mumba inflicted the all-out against the Panthers in the 28th minute and the score was 1st time leveled in the 31st minute 23 - 23.
The brilliant double thigh hold by the substitute Vinod was the moment of the match, by the time Siddharth Desai was high in his 2nd consecutive super 10. In the mean time Fazel Atrachhalli was brilliant with his blocks and in the cover Rajguru's support was incredible. It was the last 5 minute when the game completely took a turn and match slipped away from the Panthers.
All the big names from Deepak Niwas Hooda to Anup Kumar in Jaipur Pinkpanthers side had a disappointing performance.
