Pro Kabaddi League 2018 highlights, U Mumba vs Bengal Warriors, Telugu Titans vs Jaipur Pink Panthers: U Mumba and Telugu Titans recorded comfortable wins on Saturday. U Mumba were looking to retake the Zone A top spot after Gujarat Fortunegiants overtook them on Friday.

The Titans, on the other hand were looking to get their home leg on track after losing the first to U Mumba. While Bengal Warriors were dominated by Mumbai for most of the match, Jaipur had managed to keep up with their opponents for much of the first half before falling behind.

Pro Kabaddi League 2018 highlights, U Mumba vs Bengal Warriors, Telugu Titans vs Jaipur Pink Panthers:

22:16 (IST)08 Dec 2018
THAT'S THAT! Telugu Titans beat Jaipur Pink Panthers 36-26

What started off as a close match soon dissolved into another disappointing performance from Jaipur Pink Panthers. This is exactly the kind of victory the Telugu Titans were looking for. What will be interesting to see is if they can build on it. 

22:07 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Titans 32-21 Jaipur

The gap is now up to 10 points. Jaipur suffered two more all outs. Three minutes left in the match but those would be only a formality it seems. 

21:57 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Titans 23-16 Jaipur

Well, the Titans have got a vice-like grip on the match now and it doesn't look they will let go any time soon. 

21:37 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Titans 17-13 Jaipur

Two all outs in Titans' favour and they pull away. Jaipur's raiders have done well but a leaky defence is costing them dear once again. 

21:27 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Titans 6-5 Jaipur

No dearth of points in these early exchanges. The two sides are going blow for blow which means they still have quite a few players on the mat.

So these are the players who will start in the second match of the day.

Jaipur Pink Panthers have been a team in almost unhindered free fall this season while Telugu Titans' ascendancy was halted in their last match against Gujarat Fortunegiants. Needless to say, a win is more important for the home side while Jaipur can do their damaged pride some good if they manage to end up on the right side of the scoreboard. 

21:02 (IST)08 Dec 2018
THAT'S THAT! U Mumba beat Bengal Warriors 31-20

Bengal were never in the game here. Apart from that brief lead during the first two minutes, they were second best in all departments of the game. 

20:54 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Mumbai 27-15 Bengal

Four minutes to go and Mumbai had plateued a bit as Bengal gained two successive points. But then Siddharth Desai got two points in a raid and restored the gulf. 

20:42 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Mumbai 24-13 Bengal

The lead has increased to 11 points. There are 9 minutes to go but this match looks done and dusted, which does not often happen in kabaddi. 

20:30 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Mumbai 15-9 Bengal at half time

That early lead was the only positive moment for Bengal so far in this match. U Mumba have pulled away and Bengal have a proper mountain to climb now. 

20:18 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Mumbai 10-7 Bengal

Rohit Baliyan takes two points each off successive raids and increases Mumbai's lead. Bengal are also finding it increasingly difficult to win raid points. 

20:12 (IST)08 Dec 2018
Mumbai 5-5 Bengal

Bengal raced to a 5-2 lead early on and U Mumba nibble back with a succesfull tackle followed by Siddharth Desai's raid.

Hello and welcome!

Bengal Warriors are third on the Zone B table but that doesn't mean by any stretch of imagination that they are through. The Zones seem to be two different leagues this season. Gujarat and Mumbai have dominated Zone A, which is why they are in the top two spots whereas no team apart from Bengaluru Bulls have enjoyed consistently good form, not even three-time champions Patna Pirates. Every match from here on will have big effects on the Zone B table.

Pro Kabaddi League 2018 Live Score Streaming, Telugu Titans vs Jaipur Pink Panthers Live Score Streaming Online: The mighty U Mumba face Bengal Warriors in the first match to be held at Visakhapatnam. U Mumba are already through to the playoffs and a win here will help them regain their top spot that they lost to Gujarat Fortunegiants on Friday. Bengal Warriors are temporarily in a playoff spot but they will know that they need whatever points they can get to stay in there.

Telugu Titans face Jaipur Pink Panthers in the second match of the day. The Titans were beaten by Gujarat in their first home match that was held in Hyderabad. A match against the struggling Jaipur is exactly what they would have hoped for to make amends.
