Hyderabad, 29.11. The Jaipur Pink Panthers will seek to maintain their winning streak with a spectacular 48-28 victory over the Telugu Titans on Monday, especially with the playoff stages rapidly approaching.
Sunil Kumar, the captain of the Jaipur Pink Panthers, suggested that the matchup with the Bengaluru Bulls could determine who occupies the top slots after the league’s conclusion.
“It’s always do-or-die in Kabaddi, and the matchup versus the Bengaluru Bulls may determine who occupies the top slots by the end of the league. If we defeat the Bengaluru Bulls, we’ll be in a wonderful position to finish in the top two “said Sunil Kumar.
“Our defensive unit and our raiders must perform effectively and in sync, else it would be difficult against the Bengaluru Bulls, since they are a fantastic team and in good form,” he continued when discussing the Jaipur Pink Panthers’ strategy.
Coach Upendra Kumar also emphasised the importance of playing as a team, but he also had kind words for the defender Ankush, adding, “This is a team game, and even if Ankush is playing well, Sunil Kumar is also contributing significant points. Ankush, though, has the team very impressed since he always comes through when we need him to.”
When the Jaipur Pink Panthers play the Bengaluru Bulls on Wednesday, they’ll be looking to clinch a spot in the postseason. However, both teams have been scoring points with relative ease. The Jaipur Pink Panthers, led by Arjun Deshwal, will rely on his offensive prowess, while the Bengaluru Bulls will rely on Bharat and Vikash Kandola.
