Jaipur Pink Panthers, Abhishek Bachchan, Pro Kabaddi League, Kabaddi

Jaipur Pink Panthers' owner Abhishek Bachchan said his wife and actress Aishwarya Rai is not just an avid follower of the Pro Kabaddi League side as well as Indian Super League football franchise Chennaiyin FC that he owns but also offers him valuable inputs which aids his functioning as a franchise owner.
Raider Jasvir Singh got four points for the Panthers from a single raid with 10 minutes left when he got a touch on the last two Mumba players standing to pack the rivals off for a second lona and two additional points. Things went neck to neck in the initial stage, the highlight being U Mumba captain Anup Kumar taking three rivals out to help his side take a 4-2 lead before the Panthers caught up and then jumped ahead to a two-point lead (8-6). For U Mumba, the points tally in raiding was expectedly led by captain Anup Kumar(11) but what swung the game the Panthers way was superior defending through which they secured 13 points as compared to their rivals'. Stout defending, especially from Prashant Chavan, also saw the Jaipur franchise pack off the star rival raider Anup Kumar on a few occasions to further push U Mumba, who were handicapped by the knee injury sustained by key raider Shabbir Bapu Sharfuddin that handicapped his staying on court, behind. Jaipur Pink Panthers proved too strong for U Mumba as they produced a clinical performance in the all-important final to emerge triumphant in the inaugural Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League at the NSCI Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday. The Abishek Bachchan-owned Panthers scored a 35-24 victory in an action-packed summit clash against U Mumba on Sunday. The Pirates, though handicapped by the absence of their star player and captain Rakesh Kumar, defended stoutly to keep their rivals at bay, especially in the first half, to win the third place in the eight-team tournament that concluded today. The Abishek Bachchan-owned Panthers scored a 35-24 victory in an action-packed summit clash in front of a full house with a number of celebrities in attendance. They kept up this slight advantage till half time though Mumba reduced the gap to four points at the end of the 20th minute of the game (18-14).
