Jaipur Pink Panthers’ raider Jasvir Singh

The first leg of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi Season 3 saw the Vizag crowd thoroughly entertained, with 4 days of continuous, enthralling action. The home team, Telugu Titans, finished the leg with 2 wins and 2 losses, but ended up as table-toppers, with 11 points. Bengaluru Bulls, Bengal Warriors and Patna Pirates left the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium with a 100% win record.

There were some players, however, who stole the show with splendid individual performances.

We pick the best ones that could be a part of the ‘Team of the Vizag leg’.

Kashiling Adake – Dabang Delhi

Although Dabang Delhi lost both the matches they played, the 23-year-old was the bright spot for his side, with a cumulative 20 points in two matches. Kashi scored 8 points in his first match vs Bengaluru Bulls, while he amassed 12 in a high-scoring loss vs the home team, Telugu Titans. The Eagles would rely heavily on the high-flying raider’s prowess as they look to make a quick comeback this season.

Jasvir Singh – Jaipur Pink Panthers

The smiling assassin, as Jasvir is fondly called, lived up to his name in the first two matches, as he was a thorn in the side for his team's opponents. Jasvir, with 6 points, helped Jaipur Pink Panthers beat defending champions, U Mumba. He was the lone fighter for his team in a narrow 28-29 loss suffered vs Patna Pirates, as he gathered 11 points out of his team's total.

Pardeep Narwal – Patna Pirates

Patna Pirates' stalwart, Pardeep Narwal put up an all-round effort to hunt down Jaipur Pink Panthers. With 9 raid points and 2 defense points, the 18-year-old performed admirably well, beyond his tender age, to find a spot in the team of the tournament so far. Impressed by his performances in training, the coach picked him in the playing 7 and he repaid his boss' faith and how! Pardeep is surely one to look out for in the future.
