Watch : Video of “Greatest Tackle of Pro Kabaddi”, Nilesh Shinde dashes out Sandeep : Video of “Greatest Tackle of Pro Kabaddi”, Nilesh Shinde dashes out Sandeep

Kabaddi sees its share of ferocious tackles and raids with players fighting tooth and nail for each and every single point.

Over the years, Pro Kabaddi has grown even more competitive and that can be understood with the rising number of teams in the tournament that has gone up to 12. The activity too gets intense as the season moves forward. One such instance came on the first day of the Nagpur leg of action in the PKL.

On the day that Bengaluru Bulls beat Tamil Thalaivas in a thriller which started off with a dominant start by the Bulls before Thalaivas got back in the second half to reduce the gap. In the end, Bengaluru won 32-31. In the second match of the day, Puneri Paltan got the better of Dabang Delhi in a 26-21 contest that was neck-and-neck till the half time break before Pune drew lead with steady play to win.

However, despite the loss, the moment of the match, or perhaps even the tournament, was a truly extraordinary tackle by Delhi defender Nilesh Shinde, one which left the commentators and audience stunned. It was the kind of tackle that rarely comes once a season perhaps, such was the audacity and timing of it.

It was the eighth minute of the second half when this amazing episode took place. Coming in to raid for the Paltan was all-rounder Sandeep Narwal. With his side in command, he came in looking to milk the clock and use up the full 30 seconds of his raid, and in the process, try and coax the Delhi defenders into an error.

Halfway through the raid, he retreated towards the midline and started walking across the court from right to left. As he did so, he turned his back towards Shinde, Delhi’s right corner and trotted towards the opposite end. The veteran defender quite smartly tiptoed his way towards the midline without Narwal knowing and when the opportune moment arrived, he produced a powerful dash to send the man known as ‘the Beast’ flying off the court, who had no clueg what hit him.

The win took Puneri Paltan to the top of the Zone A standings with two wins in two matches while Dabang Delhi have won just once in three matches to be placed third.
