It was debutant Sunil's day as he blocked Jaipur’s best player of the day, Jasvir who with his marathon raids had garnered a whopping 11 points. At the halfway stage the winners had a 14-12 advantage after trailing 5-8 at one stage.
In the overall context it was a fine outing for the winners. Though their new captain, Manpreet Singh, a former Asian Games gold medalist failed to make an impact, the other three acquisitions, Rohit Kumar, Sunil Jaglan and Pradeep Narwal displayed good form to help their team win.
The winners were slow off the blocks. Jaipur on the other hand lost Sonu Narwal early and the whole burden of the attack was shouldered by Jasvir after his flop show against Mumbai for most part of the match. Today he improved his performance which kept his team in the fray only to falter in the end.
He scored as many as eight points in the first session but was super-tackled once.
