Pro Kabaddi: Ankush Rathee of Jaipur Pink Panthers become first defender to score 50 tackle points in PKL9

Jaipur Pink Panthers are one of the top performing team in this VIVO PKL9. And the reason behind their success is none other than their star defender Ankush Rathee.

Ankush has been a dark horse this season. He came out of nowhere and has clinched the title of top defender in the PKL9.

His ascension to the throne of top defender this season has challenged a lot of veterans of the game. Including his own teammate and captain Sunil Kumar.

Ankush Rathee picks 3 points against U Mumba

However, in the game against UMumba, Ankush unlocked another milestone. He became the first defender of the PKL9 to score 50 tackle points.

Ankush picked up 3 tackle points in the game against UMumba to unlock this feat. He now has 51 points to his name from just 14 games in this season.

The young defender has been a vital part of this Jaipur set up. And he proved his worth yet again in the recently concluded derby game between Jaipur and Mumbai.

He might not have been the top defender for his side as Sahu picked up 4 points. But he certainly was instrumental to Jaipur Pink Panthers’ victory.

This is something that Ankush Rathee has done over and over in this season. And if Jaipur are to pick up their second title in 8 years, then they’ll require for Ankush to keep firing on all cylinders.
