The fifth edition of Pro Kabaddi League is in full flow and the match between Jaipur Pink Panthers and Puneri Paltan produced a spectacular highlight reel moment. Girish used his brute strength to single-handedly stop Jasvir Singh, completing a super tackle and earning his team two points.

Season 1 winners Jaipur Pink Panthers were leading comprehensively against Puneri Paltan in a zone A match with the scoreboard reading 20-29. 

Only two Pune players were left on the mat and it looked as if Jaipur were on their way to inflict an all-out. The Pink Panthers sent Jasvir Singh to accomplish the task and a super tackle was on the cards too. From Pune, Ravi Kumar and Girish Ernak were watching their half as Jasvir started strongly by moving swiftly towards both the defenders alternately who were situated at the right and left ends of the mat.

Jasvir continued to use his quickness to find an opening and with the Puneri side trailing, Ravi and Girish were in the hunt for a super tackle. Ravi tried to use ankle hold to bring Jasvir down but the Panthers' raider quickly escaped his grip and moved towards the half way line. However, Girish was well aware that his team wouldn't be able to claw back if an all-out was inflicted on them and rushed to stop Jasvir. He blocked him perfectly and used his full body weight to counter Jasvir and tumbled him to the ground to fetch his side two crucial points.

The super tackle, however, did not prove enough for the Pune side who eventually went down 28-30.
