Pro Kabaddi League: Pro Kabaddi Season 8 kicked off in Bengaluru as the action returns to the mat after a gap of two years with the last year being devoid of action due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Bengal Warriors beat UP Yoddha while the match between Telugu Titans and Tamil Thalaivas ended in a tie.
Earlier, in the first match of the day, Abhishek Singh was the star for U Mumba as they beat Bengaluru Bulls 46-30 in the Pro Kabaddi League season opener on Wednesday. The U Mumba raider clinched a Super 10 (19 points) and was ably supported by the team’s defence in a statement victory by the season 2 champions.
Pawan Sehrawat had an off day for Bengaluru Bulls who missed a quality third raider to support Chandran Ranjit and Pawan. There were no spectators at the stadium due to the COVID-19 threat but that certainly didn’t take the energy away from the match.
