Right Cover: Sunil Siddhgavali
Hailing from Maharashtra, Sunil Siddhgavali made his debut with Jaipur Pink Panthers back in season 5 as a replacement for Manjeet Chillar, who picked up an injury mid-season.
He did not get too many chances in the team back in his debut season. In season 6, he replaced the team's primary right cover defender, Bajirao Hodage and played brilliantly throughout the tournament from the cover position.
Sunil Siddhgavali is an expert of dashes and blocks and can execute them with sheer strength and force. He improvised on his advance tackling in his second season with the Panthers as he scored 33 tackle points in 16 matches. Overall, Sunil has 49 tackle points in 28 matches at an average of 1.75 tackle points.
With the Pink Panthers entrusting faith on this exciting cover defender, the burly player can be pipped to enjoy yet another classy season.Published 13 Jul 2019, 02:18 IST
