FULL TIME! Patna Pirates 30-35 Jaipur Pink Panthers

An instrumental performance rom the Pink Panthers while the Pirates' game was found to be wanting. Did not play a fearless brand of kabaddi and were perhaps a little too circumspect. Their troubles against Arjun Deshwal's 17-point rampage was perhaps the story of the night. Sachin and Rohit Gulia made significant contributions but their defense did not live upto the expectations. In the end, it was smooth sailing for the Pink Panthers after surviving a scare towards the end of the contest. Their first win of the tournament and they will certainly be pleased with their display tonight!
40' Bhavani Rajput runs down the clock and proceeds to cross the baulk line after the match clock reads 00:00 minutes. And the Pink Panthers have won their first match in PKL 9!

HALF TIME! Patna Pirates 14-18 Jaipur Pink Panthers

Right, a topsy-turvy half where the Pirates were quick to get off the mark and assumed lead first up. However, the Pink Panthers made quite the recovery, solely on the basis of some terrific raiding by Arjun Deshwal, and have a slender 4-point lead going into the second half. Deshwal stealing the show for the Pink Panthers, notching up his Super 10 already. However, he is lacking support from the other raiders and we might just see Bhavani Rajput getting substituted in for the second half. As for Patna, Sachin is not raiding as often and it is Rohit Gulia taking more responsibility, perhaps workload management steps taken by the Pirates. However, their defense is what they need to address as they are being found to be clueless against Deshwal's onslaught. Be back in just a free minutes for the second half, promises to be an exciting one! Who will win this contest? Let's find out!
40' Do-or-die raid for the Pirates and Rohit strikes! An unnecessary ankle hold attempted by Sahul Kumar and Abhishek KS involuntarily rushes for support as well. Another couple of points to the Pirates, some much-needed ones for them. 
18' Arjun Deshwal ventures very deep and gets a hand touch on Yuvaraj. The right side of the defense should have responded there.

15' Another couple of points to Arjun Deshwal as he gets in a running hand touch on Sunil and turns his momentum towards the mid-line. Sajin is late on the dash and a weak attempt cannot stop him from crossing the mid-line.

9' Arjun Deshwal picks up speed and gets in a running hand touch on Sunil. 

However, the Pirates believe that there was no touch there before Deshwal went into the lobby. Patna review! 
The touch is as clear as day and there is absolutely no ambiguity about the touch there. Well, well, well, there was just a moment where Deshwal was close to having exited even the lobby. However, he had fingertips in the lobby followed by his left foot before hurling himself towards the mid-line. Quite a decent review in the end but it goes against them. Review unsuccessful!

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi League 2022. Day 3 will be a 'Triple Panga' Sunday which will kick-off with the game between the Jaipur Pink Panthers and the Patna Pirates at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium, Bengaluru. 

The Jaipur Pink Panthers lose their opening encounter against the U.P. Yoddhas by a narrow margin of just two points. Although they had the lead at half-time, they squandered it away and once the Yoddhas assumed lead, the Pink Panthers could never get back into the game. Bhavani Rajput, who came in as a substitute for the Pink Panthers, could get a position in the starting seven after a decent performance in the first game. 

Veteran raider Rahul Chaudhari just managed one point in that contest and we might just see the 'Showman' on the bench for this contest. In the defensive scheme of things, the Pink Panthers performed pretty decently and seem to have gotten most of their bases covered. Sahul Kumar, the right corner, failed to score a single point and his form might be the only cause of concern for the side from the Pink city of India. 

The Patna Pirates, on the other hand, were held to a tie by the Puneri Paltan in a game that ebbed and flowed continuously. It was quite an all-round showing by the Pirates, with all the players contributing well. However, they will be looking to make fewer mistakes in the defense while Sachin could certainly use a little more help from V Ajith Kumar and Rohit Gulia. It was quite an impressive debut for Yuvaraj in the left corner and he will attempt to continue playing in the same manner in this game as well. 

Right then, we are all set for a cracking encounter to start our Sunday kabaddi binge! Sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that unfolds over what promise to be an action-packed forty minutes.
