The Pink Panthers beat Dabang Delhi on Day 5 of the Rivalry Week.
Jaipur Pink Panthers have been performing very well since the onset of Pro Kabaddi League Season 8. The team are especially known for the coordination of their brilliant raiders and defenders. Jaipur’s captain and star defender Sandeep Dhull has also acknowledged the performance of his teammates in the league so far.
Sandeep Dhull’s team also displayed great coordination during the last match against Dabang Delhi. Jaipur defeated Delhi 36-30 in a close contest on Thursday, to strengthen their position in the points table. Praising his team after the match, Dhull remarked, “We have played this match to the best of our capabilities. Our raiders and defenders have played really well.”
Sandeep Dhull commented on his team’s strategy as well. He stated, “We have been following the same strategy since the very beginning of the season and have been doing good.”
The star raider of Delhi, Naveen Kumar was back in the match against Jaipur after a lengthy injury layoff, but failed to shine. Delhi’s balance in defence seemed to have been affected by Naveen’s comeback and Jaipur were quick to make the most of it.
The upcoming Pro Kabaddi League matches of Jaipur Pink Panthers will be worth watching. Jaipur are also looking confident to face Puneri Paltan in the next match. Sandeep Dhull praised the team’s exceptional defensive performances in the league and said, “The defence’s overall performance is excellent. They are all in great spirit and form”.
Jaipur Pink Panthers’ assistant coach Upendra Kumar also complimented the extraordinary teamwork of his players. “The coordination between the defence and raiders was exceptional, which led to our victory in the match. As long as the defenders perform, the team will move upwards,” Kumar said. “We took the lead in the first half. This benefitted us a lot. The lead was continued throughout the match,” he signed off.
Jaipur Pink Panthers currently stand at fourth position in the Pro Kabaddi League’s points table, with 45 points after 15 matches.
