The Maharashtra players are jumping around, running around in circles and why not?! It's an amazing victory which will be remembered for years to come! 

Rishank Devadiga, the champion skipper has led his Maharashtra team to a 34-29 victory to clinch the 65th 2017 Senior National Kabaddi Championships!

21:54 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank Devadiga has undoubtedly been the star of the championships for Maharashtra and his 18 points in the game including a SUPER RAID in the start and in the end has taken his team across the line!

21:53 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The final raid is from Maharashtra and it's a SUPER RAID! Maharashtra win! Absolutely crazy scenes at the Gachibowli Stadium!

21:52 (IST)5 JAN 2018

He's been gifted an easy point!

21:52 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank Devadiga is only standing at the half-line. Buzzer raid to come in from Monu Goyat. 

21:51 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Services now get a point and Monu Goyat has been brought back onto the mat. 

21:51 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Oh, no Services! Pressure gets to skipper Surjeet and he goes in for a very very bad tackle only a couple of steps away from the mid-line. Tushar Patil scores a point!

21:50 (IST)5 JAN 2018

SUPER TACKLE on for Services on Maharashtra's DO OR DIE attempt, Tushar Patil the man in focus. 

21:49 (IST)5 JAN 2018

SUPER TACKLE on for the Services. Nothing from that. 

21:49 (IST)5 JAN 2018

DO OR DIE raid and the Services men pick up a bonus point!

21:48 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Services down to three men. 

21:48 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Tushar Patil in for the DO OR DIE raid. An uphill task against four defenders. 

Wow! Gets a touch point on Jaideep in the last second! Runs away with joy!

21:46 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Just four minutes left on the clock, Maharashtra lead by three points. 

21:45 (IST)5 JAN 2018

In the mean-time, Girish Maruti Ernak picks up a high-5!

21:45 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Ajay Kumar, who has not scored a single point in this game has been sent off to the benches. 

21:45 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank swears on the mat for a point! Services swear on the mat for a point! Drama, drama and more drama!

In the end, Rishank gets away with a touch point!

21:43 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Three men on the mat for Maharashtra. Another SUPER TACKLE! Monu Goyat is the raider again. 

He slips after getting a touch on the right corner and that was enough as the three men on the mat pounced on him. 

21:42 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Nitin Madane perishes on the DO OR DIE raid! 

Asks the umpire for a bonus point, but he just nods and points towards the Services men. 

21:41 (IST)5 JAN 2018

This time, Monu sees two points going against him! 

SUPER TACKLE from Maharashtra! Monu goes off to the benches. 

21:40 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Maharashtra down to just three men on the mat. Super tackle opportunity on. 

21:40 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Back live after the time-out. 

21:39 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Monu Goyat, you beauty! Two more points for Monu on the DO OR DIE raid!

Thinking of a new name for him. With his continuous two-point raids, safe to call him Monu Two-yat?

21:38 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank misses the middle-line by a cat's whisker! Services pounce on the opposition skipper and drag him back into their own half. 

21:38 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Ajay Kumar swears on the mat intently begging for a point but he has not been given the point, instead, he's been given a warning. 

21:37 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank gets another touch point. Maharashtra now in the lead. 

21:36 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Twelve more minutes on the clock and the scores are tied at 22 apiece. 

21:36 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Monu is dealing in bulk here. 

Two more points for the star raider, he's single-handedly keeping the Services in contention for a win. 

21:35 (IST)5 JAN 2018

SUPER-10 for Rishank Devadiga!

Rolls away into his own half and emerges like Hercules after getting a point on Mahender Singh. 

21:35 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Services get a bonus point.

21:35 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Nitin Tomar is doing no good to his team with weak tackles. 

Yet again, he looks to pin down Rishank Devadiga which only gives the Maharashtra skipper an easy point in the end. 

21:33 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Another point for Monu Goyat! Evades the dash from the right corner and also picks up his SUPER-10 in this game! What a match he is having!

21:32 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Now Monu strikes in defence! Bends now and pounces on the raider's ankle and pins him on the mat. 

21:30 (IST)5 JAN 2018

ALL-OUT has been inflicted on Maharashtra!

Monu Goyat cleans up for Services! Gets touches on both the Maharashtra men and returns back to his half. 

21:29 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Yet another spectacular raid from Rishank Devadiga! Error from Nitin Tomar who goes for an ankle hold, Rishank picks up a bonus and the touch point. 

21:28 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Nitin Tomar scores first blood and gets rid of Rituraj, Rishank the lone man left on the mat for Maharashtra!

21:27 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The second half has commenced!

21:27 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Defending champions Services will hope for a revival in fortunes in the second half but that will be a herculean task, given the pressure that will be playing antagonist to their style of play. 

21:25 (IST)5 JAN 2018

The score-line at halftime reads 17-12 in favour of Maharashtra who have been put on a clinical display today. 

Skipper Rishank has yet again enjoyed a fabulous outing while Nilesh Salunke's inefficiency has been masked by the defence unit's contribution to the scoreline. 

21:24 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank gives Maharashtra a life-line in the buzzer raid yet again! Picks up a bonus point and powers his way through a dash from Mahender to end the first half with some momentum.  

21:23 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Maharashtra down to just one man now at the stroke of half-time. Monu Goyat scores a point. 

21:22 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Rishank picks up a bonus point. 

21:22 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Yet another two-point raid for Monu Goyat! Gets a touch on the right corner and pushes away the dash from the right corner. He's giving the Services some hope here. 

21:21 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Oh, my! Nilesh fails yet again on the DO OR DIE raid. 

Excellent defending from Services, they waited for Nilesh's mistake and he caved in the end. 

21:20 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Time-out called in by the Services coach. Looks like this would also serve as some rest time for Monu Goyat. 

21:19 (IST)5 JAN 2018

OH NO! Has Monu Goyat picked up an injury here? 

He seems to be writhing in pain as he hides behind the defence. The game moves on. 

21:19 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Two-point raid for Monu Goyat! Gets two main men. 

21:18 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Nitin Tomar comes in and goes out in less than a minute. Maharashtra defence working like a well-oiled machine today. 

21:17 (IST)5 JAN 2018

DO OR DIE raid and Rishank Devadiga falls!

Jaideep goes in with the massive ankle hold and the rest of the defence pounce. 

21:16 (IST)5 JAN 2018

Time-out called for by the Services coach. 

They will need this to make a comeback in this encounter.
