Bengal Warriors put up a stellar performance to finally edge Jaipur Pink Panthers 39-38 in their last match of Season 2 of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi after enjoying a commanding lead of 13 points going into the last quarter of play. 

The last man on the field for Bengal failed to enter for the last raid with seconds left on the clock. But he delayed and Jasvir appealed for a replay and the result was a technical point to his team. But Jasvir claimed an all-out which would have given the Panthers three points but as per the rules when a technical point is awarded a player is not given out.

The result has boosted Bengal’s tally to 27 points and given them the sixth place above Dabang Delhi who finished with 26 points today to finish the league stage. Jaipur have 37 points in 13 matches and play Patna next. The Pirates have 31 from 12 and need to win both their matches. Jaipur can escape to the semis with a draw against Patna with a tally of 40 points. But before that Patna have to get the better of Pune.

Bengal thus escaped by the skin of their teeth. The heroes for Bengal were captain Sunil Jaipal (9 raid, 3 catching points), Mahendra Rajput (10 raid, 1 catching points) and Deepak Dhull who trapped Jasvir and made Sonu Narwal ineffective for 7 catching points. Sunil had two super raids of 4 and 5 points each. Both brought an all-out upon their rivals at 12-6 and 22-10 to put them in a commanding position.

For Panthers it was Rajesh Narwal scored 10 plus two bonus points, Jasvir Singh’s contribution wasn’t significant. He had five raid points with one super raid but he was super tackled twice, once each by Vikas Kale and Deepak Dhull. The latter also trapped him on four other occasions. Panther’s lack of defence skills tonightcost them the match and has put their playoff chances in a spot of bother.
