Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League: Jaipur Pink Panthers beat U Mumba
Power packed play from Rohit Rana ensured an emphatic 27-18 win for the Jaipur Pink Panthers over last season's defending champions U Mumba on Sunday night at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Vizag.

There were a lot of speculations over the match, as both U Mumba and the Panthers have won a season of each of the Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League, but in the end Jaipur Pink Panthers proved to be more than handful for U Mumba.

Sonu Narwal, the lanky raider of the Panthers also chipped in by getting four valuable points with his sound technique. He also accounted for the rival skipper Anup Kumar twice.

To add to U Mumba's problems, even Jasvir rose to the occasion to put his side at a 20-15 lead by the 36th minute.

On the other hand all three raiders of U Mumba, Rakesh, captain Anup and Shabber Bapu could not contribute much to the score. The ploy of substituting Rishank Devdiga with Shabber also did not work for U Mumba, as the raider was overpowered at least four times on Sunday.

U Mumba's defence was good with Sunder Nada and Mohit Chillar getting 4 points each, but Rana by far outshone his opponents by bagging 8 points.
