Pro Kabaddi League 2021 Highlights: Ajith Kumar’s heroics with raids was not good enough for former champions U Mumba as they settled for a 30-30 tie against Tamil Thaliavas in their Pro Kabaddi League match on Bengaluru on Monday. The raider scored 15 points in the match to help U Mumba take a lead after trailing for long periods, but a last-minute blunder by the season 2 champions helped Thalaivas escape with a tie, their second of the season. In the second match of the night, Deepak Hooda starred in Jaipur Pink Panthers’ 32-29 win over UP Yoddhas.
For the third match in a row, Thalaivas had allowed a team to make a comeback and take the lead. But the team from Chennai calculated the last raids effectively to ensure Mumbai had to make a do-or-die attempt in the last move of the match. Ajith Kumar went for the touch instead of sacrificing himself for a bonus point and the Thaliavas defence rounded him off to clinch a tie.
The second fixture was played between UP Yoddha and Jaipur Pink Panthers. Jaipur Pink Panthers emerged victorious. They pipped UP Yoddhas by 32-29 in a closely-contested tie. Deepak Hooda was the star of the match for Pink Panthers.
