Vishal Mane and Rishank Devadiga, who were teammates in the last season, talk about each other and their respective strengths and weaknesses. The battle between the two of them is going to be pretty intense and could end up deciding the game. Meanwhile, the colossal and intimidating Rana Daggubati talks about Telugu Titans. They could do with player of his size within their ranks.
Good evening people and welcome to the live coverage of Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 from the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad. The Hyderabad leg of the world’s premier kabaddi competition begins today with home side Telugu Titans taking on defending champions Patna Pirates, who are the only remaining unbeaten side in the tournament. Both teams have played only two games till now and those have resulted in exactly opposite fortunes.
While Telugu Titans have lost both their matches and sit at the bottom of the Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 points table, Patna Pirates have begun their campaign where they left it last season, winning both games to acquire the fourth position on the chart. Not only this, Patna Pirates have managed to beat Puneri Paltan and U Mumba, both of which are exceptionally strong teams and were playing at home.
The team from Hyderabad looks a little on the weaker side but still have enough firepower with the likes of Rahul Chaudhari and Sukesh Hegde to give Patna Pirates a run for their money. Also, despite losing both their games, Telugu Titans’ score difference is just -8, meaning that they have not been defeated heavily and they are likely to take some heart from the manner they have played.
Patna Pirates, on the other hand, do not have a lot to worry about as their plans have worked in both matches with their biggest players performing exceptionally well. The defending champions have been led by the likes of Pardeep Narwal and Rajesh Mondal in attack while their captain and star defender Dharmaraj Cheralathan has hardly put a foot wrong in the game.
To make things a little more difficult for Telugu Titans, their former player and star Pardeep Narwal will be on the opposite side this time and given his performances so far, it would be really hard for the side from Hyderabad to stop him. Just to put things into perspective, Patna Pirates have played only two games till now and yet, Pardeep Narwal is third on the list of most successful raids with 19. If that is not an indication of good form, I do not know what is.
However, kabaddi is a game in which, more often than not, the team that defends better ends up winning the match, something that we saw last night when Puneri Paltan defeated Jaipur Pink Panthers. Puneri Paltan, who are sitting pretty at the top of the Pro Kabaddi 4 table, worked ever so hard to lock down Jaipur Pink Panthers’ captain Jasvir Singh. Even a Super Ten performance from Jaipur’s young star Ajay Kumar could not prevent Puneri Paltan from winning the game.
We have seen a really closely fought Pro Kabaddi till now and the current state of the table is not an exact reflection of how teams are playing in the tournament. For instance, it might seem as if Jaipur are doing really well but in reality, should other teams win a couple of more fixtures they have in thei hands, the Pink Panthers would be pushed down.
