The tournament has been nothing short of enthralling and just to cap it off, we have had an absolute edge-of-the-seat thriller! That caps off Ultimate Kho Kho 2022! The world of kho kho has entered into a new dawn with the birth of Ultimate Kho Kho and expect it to only rise from here on. Seems like just yesterday when the league kicked off with an Aniket Pote show to hand the Giants a win over the Mumbai Khiladis. And here we are, several action-packed days later, with the Juggernauts being crowned champions. Until the league returns in all its might then, this is me, Maanas Upadhyay, bidding you adieu for one last and final time! Good night!

The very animated Ashwani Kumar Sharma is absolutely pumped and he is out in the middle with the players! Tempers flare in the Yoddhas camp as the coach and the manager rush out to the court and argue with the umpires and match referee over a certain matter. They are contesting plenty of matters there but eventually they accept their fate. It is all over for Yoddhas. Nonetheless, they must hold their head high. They have played some brilliant kho kho over the past few weeks! Credit to the Juggernauts, they held their nerve in end and have just edged past the Yoddhas in what was a proper edge-of-the-seat thriller! Well don't go anywhere! Stick around for the presentations which are coming up shortly!

Odisha Juggernauts 27-35 Telugu Yoddhas

20:48 (IST)4 SEP 2022

4' A review is taken by Mahesha P as he believes there was no touch there. However, it was one as clear as day on his jersey, perhaps which he did not feel. The Juggernauts have lost their final review! It was Rohan Shingade who put in the dive to dismiss him. Review unsuccessful!

20:42 (IST)4 SEP 2022

Odisha Juggernauts 23-18 Telugu Yoddhas

7' A four-point Dream Run is converted into a SIX POINT DREAM RUN as the remaining pair continue defending pretty well. 

20:29 (IST)4 SEP 2022

6' A running touch by Subhasis Santra has tagged Arun Gunki. However, he has reviewed it once again. Perhaps a ploy to buy some time for the other defenders? Or did he genuinely believe it to be not out? Well, there was a touch there indeed and gunk has to depart!

20:29 (IST)4 SEP 2022

6' DREAM RUN! With all three defenders still on the mat, the Yoddhas have gotten a dream run in! They are not going to back down easily! 

20:26 (IST)4 SEP 2022

20:25 (IST)4 SEP 2022

Batch 2 of the Yoddhas is on the mat now - Arun Gunki, Adarsh Mohite and Rohan Shingade being a part of it. Can the Juggernauts pick up a big lead now?

20:24 (IST)4 SEP 2022
