Rishank Devadiga wrote his name in history books by scoring 28 points as UP Yoddha hammered Pink Panthers 53-32 in a Pro League match, here today.

Devadiga created the record for most points scored by a raider ever in a Pro League match.

UP Yoddha also recorded the highest number of points scored by any team in Vivo Pro Season 5.

From the first minute, UP Yoddha dominated proceedings and were relentless throughout the match.

It was Pink Panthers' Navneet Gautam's last match in Pro Kabaddi League and it ended on a sour note.

Gautam, who captained his team on the night, couldn't get on the score sheet. Tushar Patil scored eight points for Pink Panthers.

Jaipur Pink Panthers remained fifth in Zone B with 51 points from 21 matches. UP Yoddha have all but qualified for super playoff and are third in Zone A with 59 points from 20 matches.
