Tamil Thalaivas VS Jaipur Pink Panther: First Half
The Thalaivas came out firing with Manjeet and K Prapanjan looking in great form. Even the defence supported well that gave them an early advantage. But the Panthers bounced back soon, thanks to the efforts of Sandeep Dhull. After that, the match remained pretty even till the mid of the first half. The Jaipur raider Arjun Deshwal tried to inflict all out on the Tamil Thalaivas. He managed to pressure one defender out of bounds but couldn’t escape Surjeet Singh’s Thigh hold before the raid clock expired, giving Thalaivas two points and delaying the reset.
In the Pink Panthers’ next raid, skipper Hooda went in and picked up a touchpoint on Mohit, and in the subsequent raid, Jaipur’s defence pinned Surjeet down to inflict the game’s first All Out. Both teams added a couple of points to their total before the halftime whistle and went into the break with the Pink Panthers leading 17-13.
Tamil Thalaivas VS Jaipur Pink Panther: Second Half
The Thalaivas went off to a strong start in the second half. Manjeet then went in, tagged all three defenders before wrestling his way past the midline for a five-point Super Raid that helped the Thalaivas inflict an All Out and take a 21-18 lead. The Pink Panthers did not let the All Out deflate their spirits and responded strongly.
After fighting off Jaipur’s attempts at a comeback to retain their lead, Ajinkya Pawar delivered another two-point raid to push his team’s advantage to four and leave the Pink Panthers with just three players on the mat.
With the game slipping away from the Pink Panthers’ grasp, Naveen stepped up to help them claw their way back into the game. He picked up a bonus and then Super Tackled Pawar to cut his team’s deficit down to just one. Sagar then tackled Deshwal to push the Thalaivas’ lead back up to two and leave the Pink Panthers with just three players on the mat again.
Manjeet came in for the game’s final raid and entered the lobby after claiming a touch on Sahul Kumar. But the referees judged that he did not get the touch, which gave the Pink Panthers two points for a technical Super Tackle, ending the game in a tie.
