Puneri Paltan seem to be rocking this season as they put on clinical performance against gaint team U Mumba. It was one side game as Puneri Paltan beat U Mumba 41-19 in a comfortable way. Let us take a look at the result and Highlights.
It was second consecutive victory for Puneri Paltan in this season 4 of Pro Kabaddi League 2016. Ajay Thakur was the hero of the match. He dominated the U Mumba side with his attacking raids. In reply U Mumba really looked unorganized team. The U Mumba defense was absolutely weak last night. Nothing went right for U Mumba.
The night belonged to Puneri Paltan. Infact it was Ajay Thakur who did all the damages. He was absolutely on top of the game. He achieved 3 super raids in the match. It is very rare that a single player achieve 3 super raids in a single match and that also against team like U Mumba. But one has to say that the U Mumba’s defense was really poor. There was no co-ordination among them.
It was a major setback for U Mumba as it was the first time in the history of Pro Kabaddi League that Puneri Paltan has defeated U Mumba. One more stat to add, U Mumba were never defeated by any team in Pro Kabaddi League by this much big margin. So one can imagine how Puneri Paltan could perform in upcoming matches.
Till first half time it was 25-10 where Puneri Paltan were ahead with 15 points. Everyone hoped that U Mumba would come back in second half. But U Mumba did not perform to expectations and there was no sign of improvement. It looked like they were trying hard. Even captain Anup Kumar achieved a super raid in second half. But it was too little too late. It was Rakesh Kumar’s failure that hurt the U Mumba a lot. We can say that it was off day for U Mumba and they must forget it and should move forward because that’s what real champions do.
The things ended up with Puneri Paltan’s victory 41-19 and they must be very happy about the way things are going for them. At the moment Puneri Paltan tops the points table.
