One of the lessons sports teach you is to keep moving forward, even when everyone around seems to be dragging you back. Gujarat Fortunegiants' Sachin Tawar provided a perfect example of the tenacity one must have in such situation as he completed one of the raids of the ongoing PKL season yesterday.

Gujarat Fortunegiants took on Dabang Delhi in their second match of the Pro Kabaddi League yesterday, but things didn't start off as planned as they managed to consecutive empty raids on their first two attempts. 

However, Sachin Tawar took on the responsibility of facing a do or die raid for Gujarat and did not disappoint. Just as Tawar managed his first raid point, a Delhi defender managed an ankle hold on him in return. However, the hold wasn’t strong enough as the Gujarat raider managed to break it with a leap.

Moreover, even though another Delhi defender came across to try and stop Gujarat’s no.99 from making it back to the halfway line, Tawar managed to get his hand over the line and secure two points for his side.

Thanks to Tawar's efforts which set the ball rolling for Gujarat, they managed to secure a convincing 26-20 win over Delhi yesterday.
