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!
...
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!
...
The final raid is from Maharashtra and it's a SUPER RAID! Maharashtra win! Absolutely crazy scenes at the Gachibowli Stadium!
...
He's been gifted an easy point!
...
Rishank Devadiga is only standing at the half-line. Buzzer raid to come in from Monu Goyat. 
...
Services now get a point and Monu Goyat has been brought back onto the mat. 
...
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!
...
SUPER TACKLE on for Services on Maharashtra's DO OR DIE attempt, Tushar Patil the man in focus. 
...
SUPER TACKLE on for the Services. Nothing from that. 
...
DO OR DIE raid and the Services men pick up a bonus point!
...
Services down to three men. 
...
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!
...
Just four minutes left on the clock, Maharashtra lead by three points. 
...
In the mean-time, Girish Maruti Ernak picks up a high-5!
...
Ajay Kumar, who has not scored a single point in this game has been sent off to the benches. 
...
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!
...
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. 
...
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. 
...
This time, Monu sees two points going against him! 

SUPER TACKLE from Maharashtra! Monu goes off to the benches. 
...
Maharashtra down to just three men on the mat. Super tackle opportunity on. 
...
Back live after the time-out. 
...
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?
...
Rishank misses the middle-line by a cat's whisker! Services pounce on the opposition skipper and drag him back into their own half. 
...
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. 
...
Rishank gets another touch point. Maharashtra now in the lead. 
...
Twelve more minutes on the clock and the scores are tied at 22 apiece. 
...
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. 
...
SUPER-10 for Rishank Devadiga!

Rolls away into his own half and emerges like Hercules after getting a point on Mahender Singh. 
...
Services get a bonus point.
...
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. 
...
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!
...
Now Monu strikes in defence! Bends now and pounces on the raider's ankle and pins him on the mat. 
...
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. 
...
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. 
...
Nitin Tomar scores first blood and gets rid of Rituraj, Rishank the lone man left on the mat for Maharashtra!
...
The second half has commenced!
...
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. 
...
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. 
...
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.  
...
Maharashtra down to just one man now at the stroke of half-time. Monu Goyat scores a point. 
...
Rishank picks up a bonus point. 
...
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. 
...
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. 
...
Time-out called in by the Services coach. Looks like this would also serve as some rest time for Monu Goyat. 
...
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. 
...
Two-point raid for Monu Goyat! Gets two main men. 
...
Nitin Tomar comes in and goes out in less than a minute. Maharashtra defence working like a well-oiled machine today. 
...
DO OR DIE raid and Rishank Devadiga falls!

Jaideep goes in with the massive ankle hold and the rest of the defence pounce. 
...
Time-out called for by the Services coach. 

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