Arjun’s heroics help Jaipur to overcome UP Yoddha

On day six at Vivo Pro Kabaddi League season eight, Jaipur Pink Panthers managed to beat UP Yoddha 32-29. A very dominating performance by Jaipur Pink Panthers made them winner of the match.

Jaipur Pink Panthers took the lead in initial minutes. Skipper Deepak Niwas Hooda took charge of raiding department. His raiding partner Arjun Deshwal also made UP Yoddha defense unstable.

UP Yoddha raider Surender Gill’s super raid was given a reply with 7 pointer raid by Jaipur skipper Deepak Hooda. The half time score was 19-12 in favour of Jaipur Pink Panthers.

The same story was there in the second half too. Jaipur’s strategy of keeping Pardeep on the bench for maximum time worked for them. On the other hand, UP Yoddha team could not revive him soon.

As a result Jaipur won the match. Arjun Deshwal scored his third consecutive super 10 in PKL 8. Deepak picked 9 raid points. Nitin took 4 tackle points. UP Yoddha’s Surender Gill had a super 10.
