Name: Surender Nada
Team: Haryana Steelers
In a do-or-die game against Haryana Steelers, Jaipur Pink Panthers ran into the defensive wall known as Surender Nada and were unable to make any significant inroads. The Haryana captain scored 8 tackle points and was instrumental in keeping the Pawan Kumar-led Jaipur attack from getting away.
Nada was already on top of the defenders list in Season 5 with 67 points and after Wednesday’s performance he increased his tally further to 75 points. The Jaipur raiders had no answers to his strong ankle holds and massive blocks and they were able to return just 15 raid points in the entire game.
Haryana are now placed second in Zone A but they still have hopes of finishing on top of their zone to get an advantage going into the playoffs. Nada, however, will have to continue his fine form if they are to achieve that target.
