Lineups & Stats
That will be all from your host Abhishek as I bid adieu. But do stay tuned to Sportskeeda as PKL 9 brings up another double header to entertain you. 
What a game of kabaddi that was! Tamil Thalaivas win in the end courtesy of a calculation error from Fazel. The Iranian thought it would be a Do or Die raid but there was only one empty raid prior to that not two. He tells Aslam to leave enough time for the Do or Die raid but that never happened. 

You have to feel bad for Aslam who picked up 15 points in total tonight. Mohit Goyat had seven to his name while not a single raider was able to complete his High Five. Tamil Thalaivas' Narender bagged 13 points to his name while Ajinkya Pawar replied with six. Like Pune, not a single defender was able to complete his High Five. 

The game was even steven right from the word go before Narender wiped out the entire Pune defense with a six point raid. Pune tried their best to trim down the lead, but they conceded a couple of bonus points and super raids in the end as the All Out came a little late for their liking. Time had the last laugh over them as Tamil Thalaivas extend their unbeaten run to five games. 
40' FULL TIME! Fazel's miscalculation costs his team the win! Puneri play a high line but Himanshu walks past the baulk-line. Fazel is complaining of Do or Die raid but the referees say it would have been a Do or die raid in the next one. Pune's unbeaten streak comes to an end.

Tamil Thalaivas have a slender one point lead in the game but in the larger scheme of things that is next to nothing. Narender is once again up to his mark with quick raids but majority of his raid points has come via bonuses. Sagar's crunching ankle hold has made life difficult for Mohit Goyat and Aslam Inamdar while the rest of the defenders are yet to prove their mark for Tamil Thalaivas. 

For Puneri Paltan, who is Aslam Inamdar who is leading the charts with eight points to his name - five touch points, two bonuses, and one tackle point. Mohit Goyat has four points to his name but the rest of the defenders and raiders are yet to pick up. Only one point separates the two sides as we get ready for an exciting next twenty minutes.

Who will win the encounter between Puneri Paltan and Tamil Thalaivas? Here is Sportskeeda's take on the same. 
Ajinkya Pawar bagged a six point raid against Tamil Thalaivas last time. Can he repeat the feat against Puneri Paltan tonight? Looks tough but let's find out. 
Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda for today's match between Puneri Paltan and Tamil Thalaivas. This is your host Abhishek and I shall be your eyes and ears for the contest. 

Puneri Paltan are unbeaten in their last seven encounters, winning six and drawing once. The steamrolled over UP Yoddha with a 40-31 win. The unbeaten streak is largely due to the presence of two Iranian defenders Fazel Atrachali and Esmaeil Nabibakhsh. With either one of Aslam Inamdar, Mohit Goyat, or Akash Shinde picking up Super 10's in each of their last four matches, Puneri have proven themselves why they are a side to beat and occupy the pole position in the points table. 

Things are not looking so bright for Tamil Thalaivas on the other hand. Although they are on a four-match unbeaten streak, they sit on the eighth spot. Ajinkya Pawar and Narender Hoshiyar have filled the shoes of an injured Pawan Sehrawat in the raiding department, but the push has not yet come from the defenders. They have to do slightly better to beat the table toppers Pune tonight. 

Don't go anywhere as the match will start from 08:30 PM IST. Do stay tuned till then.
