What a wonderful game of Kabaddi we witnessed here! Thanks for tuning into this LIVE coverage with me, Saikrishna MD. There's another big game that's underway up next. Don't miss out on it. Until then, adios!
FULL TIME! Bengal Warriors 24 - 39 Jaipur Pink Panthers

The inaugural edition champions were absolutely on song this evening. A fantastic result here for the men in pink. This game didn't go as per the Warriors' plan; it was an off-day for the Mighty Mani. Shrikant Jadhav, Deepak Hooda, and Girish Ernak did all they could, but they fumbled in the face of a fiery attack by the Pink Panthers. On the other hand, Arjun Deshwal recorded yet another Super 10, while there were a few commendable raid efforts from the likes of Ajith Kumar and Bhavani Rajput, and their defence was solid with Sunil Kumar and Ankush forming a strong defensive fort. It was a show of pure dominance by the Jaipur Pink Panthers here and they were truly scintillating throughout the game, for which they deserved those five points. A key point to note here is that this is the Pink Panthers' fourth straight win and they firmly sit in second on the PKL 9 table.

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda’s coverage of the PKL season 9. Two exciting matches are lined up for tonight, and the first match is set to feature two champion teams, the Bengal Warriors and the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Both teams appear to be confident in their start to the season, and they have assembled strong squads to help them reclaim their glory. 

The Warriors and Pink Panthers will enter the mat on Tuesday evening on a bank of victories in their previous matches, respectively. The Mighty Mani, as they call him, will be all pumped up to have a go and bag maximum points, while the men in pink will hope for some brilliance from their top star, Arjun Deshwal, to wreak havoc on their opponent's defence.

All right, it’s about go time. Which of these two champions of the past will get the last laugh and who will prevail as a top force in this battle between Maninder Singh and Arjun Deshwal? This should be a cracker of a contest and you don’t want to miss it. Taking you through all the live action will be me, Saikrishna MD. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the live coverage!
