Raider Aslam Inamdar was the star for Puneri Paltan as they beat defending champions Bengal Warriors 39-27 in Match 43 of Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 in Bengaluru on Sunday.
Inamdar scored a Super 10 (17 points) while Abinesh Nadarajan clinched a High 5 (five tackle points) for Puneri Paltan who had a near-flawless performance on the mat.
Captain Maninder Singh clinched a Super 10 for the Warriors, but he proved to be the sole performer for a team desperately short of confidence.
In the second match on Sunday, UP Yoddha’s defence produced a night to remember as they pinned Bengaluru Bulls’ raiders and helped the team win 42-27.
Yoddha claimed six Super Tackles in the win that helped the team jump to sixth on the points table.
Shrikant Jadhav scored a Super 10 (15 total points including 3 for tackles) while all the defenders chipped in with tackles.
This was the best performance ever by a defence (22 tackle points) in PKL history and will certainly set the tone for the rest of the campaign.
