Patna Pirates’ 38-26 win over Puneri Paltan and Haryana Steelers’ 39-27 win over Telugu Titans were among the highlights of the Pro Kabaddi League 2021.
Highlights from the Pro Kabaddi League in 2021: Three-time champions Patna Pirates defeated Puneri Paltan 38-26 in a Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 match in Bengaluru on Tuesday. Patna’s defence three of Sunil (4 points), Mohammadreza Chiyaneh (3 points), and Sajin C. combined for a Super 10 (10 points). (three points)
Despite promising performances from youth, the Puneri Paltan’s lack of a competent raider will be a source of concern after their second loss in three matches. All eyes were on Pune’s Rahul Chaudhari once again, but despite starting the game, coach Anup Kumar substituted the young Mohit Goyat in the first half.
Raiders like Aslam Inamdar and Pankaj Mohite caused problems for the Patna defence, while Prashant Kumar Rai and Sachin were equally effective on the other end. Patna was on the edge of a ‘All Out’ with six minutes to go before halftime, but their defender Sajin C produced a Super Tackle to turn the tide.
Later in the game, the three-time champions struck gold when Monu Goyat made a last-ditch attack into the lobby without making contact, only to be tracked down by three Pune defenders who had been tricked by his movements. At the end of the first half, which ended 14-14, Pune had only two players on the mat.
In the second match of the day, Haryana Steelers defeated Telugu Titans by two points. The Haryana Steelers won with a score of 39-37. For the first time of the event, the Haryana Steelers were victorious.
