Pro Kabaddi 2022 had a double-header contest in store for fans on February 9. The night opened with a match between the Tamil Thalaivas and UP Yoddha. Both Pro Kabaddi teams needed a win to enter the Top 6 of the standings.
Later in the night, the Gujarat Giants locked horns with the Telugu Titans in a must-win encounter. Now that both games have ended, here's a look at tonight's results.
Tamil Thalaivas vs UP Yoddha Pro Kabaddi result
UP Yoddha beat Tamil Thalaivas 41-39 in the first match of the night. Super 10s from Surender Gill and Pardeep Narwal helped the Uttar Pradesh-based franchise cruise to a two-point victory. While Gill scored 11 touch points and two bonus points, Narwal contributed 10 touch points.
Manjeet scored a Super 10 for the Thalaivas but the defense could not support him much. As a result, the Thalaivas lost by two points. Sagar, who is the number one defender in PKL 8, got out four times against UP Yoddha. His poor performance in a crucial game would have disappointed Tamil Thalaivas fans.
