Pro Kabaddi 2018 Highlights, Puneri Paltan vs Tamil Thalaivas, U Mumba vs Telugu Titans: Pune have won three matches in three days.

Pro Kabaddi 2018 Highlights, Puneri Paltan vs Tamil Thalaivas, U Mumba vs Telugu Titans: Puneri Paltan are doing exactly what Tamil Thalaivas could never do. They lost their first home match but have since managed three wins in as many days, which is an astonishing streak. These points will come handy in the latter stages of the season when the other teams would get done with their home legs, which normally is not kind on a team. Nitin Tomar has been in incredible form and has been the driving force behind Pune’s hat-trick of wins.

Rahul Chaudhari takes a review for a bonus point so early on in the game. That review turns out to be unsuccessful. An utter waste from Chaudhari. A review so early and that too for a flimsy bonus point.

Hello and welcome!

Iran has been good on these two teams. U Mumba raided well last season but had practically had no defence. Fazel Attrachali came and changed that. Telugu Titans were so wretched in the start that they did nothing well. Abozar Mighani came and suddenly, they have balance. They are two of the most improved sides in the league at the moment. It should be an interesting contest.
