That's it from me, Vinay Chhabria! Hope you enjoyed Sportskeeda's coverage of the 2nd match of Pro Kabaddi 2021.Switch tabs to follow all the commentary from Match 3, Bengal Warriors vs UP Yoddha right here.
Okay then, the 2nd match of Pro Kabaddi 2021 is in the history books. All eyes will now be on the final match of the night. Pardeep Narwal will make his PKL debut for UP Yoddha against the defending champions Bengal Warriors. 
Manjeet scored 12 points and was the best player of the match. Siddharth Desai scored 11 points as well, while Sandeep Kandola registered a High 5 in the defense. 
At one moment, it seemed like the Tamil Thalaivas would win the match, but Siddharth Desai's super raid brought the Telugu Titans back. Manjeet failed to score a raid point when it mattered the most and the successful tackle from the Titans in the buzzer raid gave fans the 1st draw of the season. 
It's the fourth time that we have seen a tied encounter between Telugu Titans and Tamil Thalaivas. What a game we have had here!! Manjeet, Prapanjan, Surjeet, Sandeep Kandola, Siddharth Desai and Mohit were the stars of the match. A total of 80 points were scored but there was nothing to separate the 2 teams.

Some big names present in both squads, have a look at how the two teams can stack up for tonight's big clash! 🔥
For the first southern derby of Pro Kabaddi 2021, we've made your job of picking a good Dream11 team a lot easier! Take a look! 👆
Both squads look solid on paper. It will be exciting to see which team comes out on top in the second match of PKL 2021. 
Ahead of PKL 2021, both franchises released a majority of their PKL 2019 stars. Telugu Titans signed their season two's superstar Sandeep Kandola and former two-time Pro Kabaddi League winner Rohit Kumar at the auction. On the other side, Tamil Thalaivas added the trio of Surjeet, Manjeet and Prapanjan. 
In the previous season, Tamil Thalaivas had several experienced players in the squad, including the likes of Ajay Thakur, Manjeet Chhillar, Rahul Chaudhari, Mohit Chhillar and Shabeer Bappu. Still, the Chennai-based franchise failed to perform well. They took the wooden spoon home in PKL 2019 after registering only four victories in 22 matches. 
Tamil Thalaivas and Telugu Titans have not achieved much success in the Pro Kabaddi League. The Titans have been a part of the league since its inception but they have finished in the Top 4 only twice. Despite being home to some big names like Rahul Chaudhari, Deepak Niwas Hooda, Rakesh Kumar, Sandeep Narwal and Meraj Sheykh, the Titans have never made it to a single PKL final. On the other side, the Tamil Thalaivas have finished last in all three seasons they have played so far.
