An example of that was last season when Anup fumed over the referee’s decisions during that match. The second match of the day is between hosts Tamil Thalaivas and Bengaluru Bulls.

Pro Kabaddi 2018 Highlights Tamil Thalaivas vs Bengaluru Bulls, U Mumba vs Jaipur Pink Panthers:

THAT'S THAT! Bengaluru Bulls 48-37 Tamil Thalaivas

Thalaivas could never get out of that five point raid. Even after Shehrawat was injured, there was such a big gap that Bengaluru simply needed to keep their calm. They did that and come out on top. A hat-trick of wins then for Bengaluru Bulls. 

Bengaluru Bulls 48-37 Tamil Thalaivas

Thalaivas could never get out of that five point raid. Even after Shehrawat was injured, there was such a big gap that Bengaluru simply needed to keep their calm. They did that and come out on top. A hat-trick of wins then for Bengaluru Bulls. 

Bengaluru Bull 43-29 Tamil Thalaivas

There is no lack of points. Both sides have defences that seem to be as leaky as the roof of a Mumbai local during monsoons. It's just that the Pawan's five-point raid in the first half has helped Bengaluru keep their distance. 

Thalaivas 20-37 Bengaluru

Ajay Thakur picks up two points and that takes his tally in this match to 8 points. Kashiling Adake then goes in and takes another. Time out called after that. 

Thalaivas 17-36 Bengaluru

20 points for Pawan Shehrawat but he landed awkwardly on his knee while taking that last point. He has to be helped off the court. That is not a good sight. 

Thalaivas 14-34 Bengaluru

Points just flowing hot and quick for Bengaluru Bulls and most have been through raids. Pawan Shehrawat is now on 19 points. 

HALF TIME! Thalaivas 12-28 Bengaluru

Pawan Shehrawat has claimed 17 points on his own. Unreal stuff this from the young man. He has taken the Thalaivas apart in this first half. The match was a rather close affair up until Shehrawat's five-point raid. 

Thalaivas 11-20 Bengaluru

Super Raid Thalaivas' Pawan Shehrawat does a FIVE POINT RAID. The match has been handed to Bengaluru Bulls on a platter now. 

Thalaivas 9-13 Bengaluru

With just three people remaining in the Bengaluru half of the mat, the Super Tackle was on. Ajay Thakur was the raider and it looked like he had reached the line with touches from all three. But it was declared as a Super Tackle and Bengaluru extended their lead. 

Tamil Thalaivas 5-9 Bengaluru Bulls

Big lead to start the match for Bengaluru Bulls and that is all thanks to Pawan Shehrawat. The youngster has collected 8 points already. 

Up next, Tamil Thalaivas vs Bengaluru Bulls

Bengaluru Bulls had a torrid time last season. Despite Rohit Kumar's brilliant performances, they could climb too high on the points table and it did look at times that they were completely dependent on their captain. Tamil Thalaivas made a statement of their first match by thrashing the defending champions Patna Pirates but have since slumped to two losses on the trot. 

THAT'S THAT! U Mumba beat Jaipur Pink Panthers 39-32

How about that! U Mumba were simply gifting points away in the first half. But once they came back from the all out, they were a changed side. In the last two minutes, U Mumbai have picked up 10 points as opposed to Jaipur Pink Panthers' two. An incredible performance from them. 

Mumbai 38-30 Jaipur

Well U Mumba are shredding Jaipur apart now. Since they were all out in the 1st half, momentum in this game has completely shifted in their favour. 

Mumbai 27-30 Jaipur

Anup Kumar with two successive succesfull raids, the second of which sends Fazel to the bench. Jaipur maintain a three point lead with just over 4 mins remaining. 

Mumbai 24-24 Jaipur

Nothing to separate the two sides now. Just 7 mins to go and the scores are level. 

Mumbai 22-23 Jaipur

Jaipur pegged back once again. Anup Kumar is taken down and the Jaipur players pick him up rather respectfully. 

Mumbai 16-20 Jaipur

Super tackle on Siddharth Desai and Jaipur pull away once again. They were right on the edge with their kead reduced to two points and with just two players on the mat. 

Mumbai 14-16 Jaipur

Just three people left on the Jaipur side now. Now they are on the verge of an all out. We have a see-saw here. 

HALF TIME! Mumbai 13-15 Jaipur

Since the all out U Mumba have put the Pink Panthers under considerable pressure. The latter reinstated their five point-lead but that was a momentary repreive. Mumbai got three consecutive points to cut the lead down to two points. 

U Mumba 7-11 Jaipur Pink Panthers

First all out of the match and it is against U Mumba. It came after Nitin Rawal was stopped from getting a successful raid. 

U Mumba 2-7 Jaipur Pink Panthers

U Mumba were reduced to two and it did look like they had managed a Super Tackle. But it turned out that Fazel had accidentally stepped outside and so he was dismissed for Jaipur to extend their lead to five. 

Mumbai 1-2 Jaipur

Siddhart Desai takes first raid for U Mumba and it is a succesfull one. Jaipur managed to nick one back by dismissing Abolfazl Maghsodlou. Deepak Hooda then raids succesfully to take Jaipur into the lead. 

The two teams are out

They have lined up on opposite ends of the mat at Chennai's Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor stadium and are going through the motions. 

The two teams

In their previous match, U Mumba showed off their newly acquired defensive props. Fazel Attrachali and Dharmaraj Cheralathan were the chief sources of their points as they remained in the lead for much of the match. A late surge by Puneri Paltan denied them a victory. They will be up against the likes of Anup and Bajirao Hodage today and their raiders will have to find a way to snatch points out of a defence that will be led by Mohit Chillar and Deepak Niwas Hooda. 

The teams

So here are the starters for both sides

Hello and welcome!

Anup Kumar has been synonymous with the sport of kabaddi and U Mumba since the first season of Pro Kabaddi. This also means that he has been one of the foremost individuals involved in the team's heated matches against Jaipur Pink Panthers. It will hence be pretty interesting to see him wearing the pink jersey. U Mumba started off with a thriller of a 32-32 tie against fellow Maharashtra team Puneri Paltan. It was a match that was decided in the last second. They would hope now that this particular match doesn't turn out to be as close an affair.

Pro Kabaddi 2018 Highlights Tamil Thalaivas vs Bengaluru Bulls, U Mumba vs Jaipur Pink Panthers: They won season one but since then have met with little success. Now they have got a big name at the helm in the form of Anup Kumar. Under the leadership of Anup Kumar, the Pink Panthers will go in with renewed vigour. Their most expensive buy is Deepak Hooda for a whopping sum of Rs 1.15 crore. Defenders Bajirao Hodge and Mohit Chillar provide the additional experience which will help the Panthers go all the way.
