Jaipur: The clash be­tween Jaipur Pink Pan­thers and Gu­jarat For­tune­giants ended in a thrilla-minute 28-28 tie in the Pro Kabaddi League at the Sawai Mans­ingh Sta­dium here on Fri­day. With the draw, Jaipur re­main at the sev­enth spot while Gu­jarat stayed in the 10th place. In the sec­ond match, UP Yod­dha de­mol­ished Tamil Tha­laivas 41-19. With this loss, Tamil Tha­laivas broke their pre­vi­ous record of los­ing 11 matches in a row.

In the Jaipur-Gu­jarat match, raiders strug­gled to get a stran­gle­hold as the de­fend­ers kept putting in suc­cess­ful tack­les. The Pink Pan­thers, boosted by the re­turn of Vishal, looked slightly bet­ter, and the mar­ginal dif­fer­ence in qual­ity was all they needed to in­flict an All-Out on Gu­jarat. The teams were tied 24-24 with three min­utes to go. Both tried to edge ahead but it ended in a stale­mate.
