FT: Jaipur Pink Panthers win 31-26 over the Puneri Paltan. 

Well then, the Pink Panthers finally found a way to halt their losing streak and pick up an important 5-point win that now sees them occupy 7th spot in the Pro Kabaddi 2021 points table. For the first time in many matches, Arjun Deshwal's Super 10 (11 points) was complemented by a fine defensive performance, with corner defenders Sandeep Dhull (4) and Sahul Kumar (4) keeping the Paltan raiders at bay.

As for the Anup Kumar-coached side, none of the starting 7 players found form, and despite some late scoring from Nitin Tomar, they eventually fell to an all-out in the last few minutes that proved to be the final nail in the coffin. 
40' Mohit Goyat plays it safe on the final raid of the match and spends some time at the mid-line. 
40' Arjun Deshwal in for a Do or Die raid and he's been pinned down by yet another ankle hold from Aslam Inamdar! Vishal joins in on the tackle and they keep their man down. 

Jaipur 31 - 26 Paltan
40' Nitin Tomar jumps out of an ankle hold from Sahul Kumar to sprint away with a point.

Jaipur 31 - 25 Paltan
39' Aslam Inamdar has been given a point! Vishal Lather's dash is in vain on this occasion. Jaipur review! They feel Inamdar was dashed out before he got across the mid-line. Review SUCCESSFUL! 

Jaipur 31 - 24 Paltan
38' All-Out on the Paltan! Baldev picks up a bonus, but there's no way he was getting away from Sahul Kumar's ankle hold!

Jaipur 30 - 24 Paltan
37' Arjun forces an error from Vishal Bhardwaj, the Paltan captain dives on his ankles but didn't have the power! Point to Deshwal!

Jaipur 27 - 23 Paltan
37' Mohit Goyat comes in for a Do or Die raid and he's brought down by a double thigh hold from Sahul Kumar! Coach Anup Kumar is certainly not happy. 

Jaipur 26 - 23 Paltan
36' An empty raid from Mohit followed by one from Deepak Hooda. 
Time-out in place. 

Jaipur have a slender two-point lead and momentum on their side, with Nitin Tomar on the bench. Paltan will need to exhibit patience now, for even a small error with only three men on the court could cost them some vital points.
25' Deepak Hooda gets a touch on Nitin Tomar on the Do or Die raid! Tomar is absolutely furious that the Paltan defenders didn't look for a dash!

31' Quick footwork on display from Nitin Tomar, but the Panthers have done well to keep away. No point there. 
Time-out in place!

Arjun Deshwal's notched up his 7th consecutive Super 10, and the Paltan are under pressure. Their raiders have misfired all match, and they'll need some magic from Nitin Tomar to get them back in this game. 
29' Super 10 for Arjun! He's claiming a touch point on Abinesh Nadarajan in the right corner on the Do or Die raid. He's been given it, much to Abinesh's disappointment.

Hello folks, welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 39 of Pro Kabaddi 2021 between the Jaipur Pink Panthers and Puneri Paltan! 

Both sides have failed to get going so far in this edition of the PKL, picking up only 2 wins from their 6 matches so far. Puneri Paltan find themselves languishing at the bottom of the points table while their opponents on the day, the Pink Panthers are 10th. In terms of form though, the Paltan will be slightly better placed, having clinched a 33-26 win over the Gujarat Giants in their last encounter. 

That means there's a lot of work that the Panthers will need to put in to halt their three-match losing streak, all of them coming in despite Arjun Deshwal's red-hot form on the raiding front. Panthers' skipper Deepak Hooda has looked far from his dynamic best, and that, in turn, has piled all the pressure on Deshwal. Defence-wise, the Panthers are last on the table with just 44 points from 6 matches, and against a hot-and-cold Paltan raiding unit, this might just the game for the former's defenders to jump back into form. 

With some crucial points up for grabs, we're in for a riveting contest! I'm Prasen Moudgal, and I will take you through all of the action today!
