Sawai Padmanabh Singh is the youngest ever player to represent Indian Polo team in the upcoming World Cup matches. This was for the second time that the Maharaja of Jaipur has led a team against Prince William and won.

Pune: The Dhamani 1969 polo team led by the 18-year-old Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur defeated the team of Prince William by half a goal to win the Maserati Royal Charity Polo match at the Gloucestershire-based Beaufort Polo Club.

The closely contested match was part of the UK leg of the Maserati International Polo Tour. The opposing team led by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, played on the Maserati Polo team.

Prince William took part in the game in aid of the charities of Child Bereavement of which he is the patron. 

However, Dhamani 1969 team led by Sawai Padmanabh Singh and teammates Karan Thapar, Nina Clarkin and Olly Tuthill just proved too strong and with their powerful play steered them to victory of 7-6½.
