Name: Nitin Tomar
Team: U.P. Yoddha
U.P. Yoddha have had a rocky season in VIVO Pro Kabaddi so far. In spite of their raiders getting them points, they have often been guilty of allowing oppositions to come back late in the game due to lapses in concentration. Their captain Nitin Tomar has been their biggest asset though, contributing in both defence and offence and keeping the side together more often than not. He showed the same level of commitment on Wednesday and played a big role in the Yoddha pulling off the biggest victory of the season in terms of points margin (45-16).
Tomar scored 14 raid points and 1 tackle point but more importantly he was willing to give the younger members of his side a look-in against a frail Delhi defence instead of going for personal glory. He marshalled his resources perfectly and often took a back seat to allow the youngsters to gain precious experience, thus bringing to the fore his commendable qualities as a leader.
With their captain in such good form, U.P. Yoddha will look to keep up their dominance and seal a play-off berth in the upcoming matches.
