Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4: 5 most memorable player performances from Jaipur leg
The Jaipur leg of Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 had some really interesting matches with close finishes, and most of them were nail biters that went down to the wire. The first five matches of the leg saw matches finishing with a difference of hardly a couple of points between the winning and losing teams. In the first match, Jaipur beat Hyderabad by four points (28-24). The second match saw Patna beating Mumbai by just two points (36-34).
The third match between Jaipur and Bengaluru was a tie (28-28), and the fourth match between Mumbai and Pune finished with a miniscule difference of 2 points (27-25). The fifth match had Jaipur beating Bengal by 3 points (36-33). The sixth match had Delhi beating Bengaluru 32-24, and the last match of the Jaipur leg was disappointing for the home team as table toppers Puneri Paltan defeated Jaipur Pink Panthers quite comprehensively, with the final score reading 33-28.
The league now moves into the Hyderabad leg and Telugu Titans would be expected to win some matches in their home turf. Let us now take a look at 5 of the most phenomenal performances of the Jaipur leg by players who fought really hard to give their team the victory:
1) Jasvir Singh vs Bengal Warriors
Jaipur Pink Panthers had a phenomenal run at home, winning 2 and drawing one of their first three matches. They beat Bengal Warriors 36-33 after their draw against Bengaluru Bulls (28-28), and had Shabeer Bapu and Jasvir Singh to thank for the victory, who gave amazing display of their skills on the court to lead his team.
The captain led from by example as he went for 17 raids, out of which 8 were successful, 6 were empty and 3 were unsuccessful. He was adjudged the Best Raider of the Match as he had a total of 11 touch points and 2 bonus points to his name to give him a total of 13 raid points, the most in the match. If not for him, his team would have found it really difficult to beat Bengal Warriors, who themselves had quite a decent game, but couldn’t manage to be the better team of the 2 in the match.
