Pro Kabaddi 2017: In Match 104 of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017 Inter-Zone challenge week, Bengal Warriors defeated Jaipur Pink Panthers in the last gasp effort, 32-31. The turning point of the match was Maninder’s last raid, where he managed to get a lucky bonus point which took Warriors a point clear on the scoreboard. Before this raid the match was a draw and if Jaipur could have managed to stop Maninder from getting any point they could have either won or even settle for a draw. A nail-biting finisher and a stellar performance put up by both the teams but it was the Bengal Warriors who stand tall at the end of the day with Maninder Singh’s 16 raid points. This is the first win for Bengal Warriors in the Inter-Zone challenge. Although, Manjeet Chillar tried his best to keep the Panthers defence together,but some sloppy defending by the Panther defenders made them pay the price.
