UP Yoddha scripted their win in the 93rd match of Pro Kabaddi League season seven. The Nitesh Kumar’s men like warriors against one-time champions Jaipur Pink Panthers on Monday. The UP lads dethroned Panthers by the 38-32 verdict in front of the vibrant crowd at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Pune. All thanks to the all-round performance of stalwarts Surender Gill, Shrikant Jadhav, and Rishank Devadiga. Three of them have scored maximum raid points for their team’s win.

The match started with a solid raiding performance by Jaipur Pink Panthers with the help of Sushil Gulia. Jaipur grabbed the three-point lead within two minutes of beginning. But their silly errors in defense gave the opportunity to UP Yoddha to bounce back in the game. Top-three raiders of UP Yoddha, Gill, Jadhav, and Devadiga produced an impressive raiding performance after which UP inflicted its first All Out of the night on Jaipur Panthers. After the All-Out Jaipur lost its confidence in the match as a result, Jadhav picked up an easy three-point raid when only two minutes were left for the halftime. The first half ended with a  20-13 lead in the favour of UP.

In the second half also, tensed Panthers struggled a lot to reduce the gap between both the teams as it was hard to break UP’s defence last night. Within few minutes of the restart, UP boys secured their second All-Out and trailed with an 8-point lead which became quite impossible to dodge. As a result, UP Yoddha came out as the winners of the game.

Here’s see the match highlights of the worth-watching battle between Jaipur Pink Panthers and UP Yoddha at Pro Kabaddi League 2019:

With this outstanding win, UP Yoddha improved much better in current Pro Kabaddi League Standings as they reached to the fifth position along with 47 points in account. While on the other side, Panthers moved down to the seventh spot along with 43 points in recent standings.
