By Sportskeeda Desk | Last ModifiedAug 24, 2022 21:52 IST

The match will begin at 8:45pm IST.


21:52 (IST)24 AUG 2022

A topsy-turvy game that, in the end, the Mumbai Khiladis have snared by a healthy margin of 14-points courtesy of their defense. They have done perhaps the unthinkable here and have shown that defense can win you games as well! And they have announced their comeback into the tournament in style. Right then, that will bring an end to our coverage. Join us back tomorrow for another couple of action-packed games. Until next time then, this is me, Maanas Upadhyay, bidding you adieu! 

21:46 (IST)24 AUG 2022

FULL TIME! Mumbai Khiladis 56-42 Rajasthan Warriors

11 points to the Warriors, 10 to the Mumbai Khiladis in Turn 4,
where the Warriors were attacking! That should perhaps paint the picture of what a showing it has been from the Mumbai Khiladis! An embarrassing defeat for the Warriors, perhaps even more than their 38-point loss to the Yoddhas. With just a deficit of 15 points, Rajasthan were expected to cruise to a win but on a day that their defense came to the party, the attack flopped completely. The trio of Durvesh Salunke, Avik Singha and Gajanan ensuring that the Khiladis get eight points while skipper Vijay Hajare ensured another couple of points in the end. Whew! What an exciting game it has been, one of the firsts where a defense has dominated proceedings!

21:45 (IST)24 AUG 2022

7' DREAM RUN! Vijay Hajare evades the attackers and ensures that the Khiladis get another couple of points courtesy of a defense bonus!

21:44 (IST)24 AUG 2022

6' A couple of running touches from Mahajar Jamadar and Hrushikesh results in Sreeejsh S and Abhishek being sent back to the bench. 

21:43 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' Well finally a sky dive sends back Durvesh as he runs out of gas completely and falls to the mat after being tagged.

Mumbai Khiladis 54-38 Rajasthan Warriors

21:42 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' UKK RECORD! Take a bow Durvesh Salunke! The Dream Run continues and it is an 8-point DREAM RUN! Whew! What a showing from him and he continues going!

Mumbai Khiladis 54-35 Rajasthan Warriors

21:41 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' THE DREAM RUN CONTINUES! Durvesh has extended the dream run to six points now!

21:41 (IST)24 AUG 2022

4' A dive from Suresh Sawant sends back Avik Singha. Was quite a terrific showing from Sawant but not enough to qualify as a sky dive. Durvesh continues to survive! 

21:40 (IST)24 AUG 2022

3' DREAM RUN! Defender bonus for Mumbai Khiladis and the pair of Durvesh Salunke and Avik Singha continue to evade the defenders. And they have lasted another thirty seconds! Another DREAM RUN!

21:39 (IST)24 AUG 2022

3' A running touch from Mahajar Jamadar on Gajanan Shengal sends him back just moments before the Dream Run was announced. 

21:31 (IST)24 AUG 2022

At the end of Turn 3: Mumbai Khiladis 46-31 Rajasthan Warriors

Just a 15-point lead going into the final turn for the Khiladis and they have been pretty tentative and a tad sluggish on the mat today. Sengar, who put in a couple of Dream Runs, led the Warriors' recovery and ensured that they go into the fourth turn with a short deficit. Rajasthan's game to lose from here on certainly unless Mumbai can pull off a miraculous defense. 

21:31 (IST)24 AUG 2022

7' A sky dive from Avik Singha on Abhijit Patil just at the stroke of the buzzer finishes the turn. 

21:30 (IST)24 AUG 2022

6' Sushant Hajare is SELF OUT once again! Second self out for him in the game as he steps into the lobby.

Mumbai Khiladis 43-31 Rajasthan Warriors

21:29 (IST)24 AUG 2022

The Mumbai Khiladis have opted for the Power Play! Too little, too late? 

21:29 (IST)24 AUG 2022

6' Quite a desperate sky dive from Milind and he just about manages to get a touch on Sengar to send him back finally.

Mumbai Khiladis 40-31 Rajasthan Warriors

21:28 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' DREAM RUN! Defender bonus for Sengar as he has lasted for two and a half minutes. And he lasts another thirty seconds as well! Another couple of points!

Mumbai Khiladis 37-31 Rajasthan Warriors

21:27 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' A sky dive from Gajanan has tagged Hrushikesh. Although the touch has been granted, Hrushikesh has decided to review it! The review is unsuccessful as Gajanan had indeed gotten a slight touch on the sleeve.

Mumbai Khiladis 37-27 Rajasthan Warriors

21:24 (IST)24 AUG 2022

4' Mumbai Khiladis have reviewed as they believe there was a touch which has not been granted by the umpire. However, the attacker had stepped on the central lane before putting in the attacking action and the review is unsuccessful!

21:23 (IST)24 AUG 2022

3' A terrific sky dive from Gajanan as he leaps through the air and puts in a full-length dive to send back Suresh Sawant. 

21:22 (IST)24 AUG 2022

2' Mahajar Jamadar finally perishes as Sreejesh S traps him in the cross lane. Clever from Jamadar to just allow a simple touch and not concede a self out or a sky dive.

Mumbai Khiladis 31-27 Rajasthan Warriors

21:21 (IST)24 AUG 2022

2' Mumbai leave the pursuit of Mahajar Jamadar and go after Nikhil B. And almost immediately, they taste success as Sreejesh S sends him back. 

21:20 (IST)24 AUG 2022

1' Mumbai Khiladis start off in good fashion, getting in a running touch on Taseen. It was Faizankhan Pathan who did the damage there.

Mumbai Khiladis 27-27 Rajasthan Warriors

21:16 (IST)24 AUG 2022

HALF TIME! At the end of Turn 2: Mumbai Khiladis 25-27 Rajasthan Warriors

Well, the game hangs in balance, with the Warriors just having their noses ahead. The Warriors were pretty good in attack, especially when they opted for the Power Play, sending back one of Mumbai Khiladis' best batches in inside a minute. It will be interesting to see who emerges on top in this encounter and we are certainly in for a close finish!

21:14 (IST)24 AUG 2022

7' Dhananjoy Singh puts in a dive, which is not enough to qualify as a sky dive, gets the better of Devendra Dagur.

Mumbai Khiladis 25-27 Rajasthan Warriors

21:13 (IST)24 AUG 2022

7' Mohammed Taseen tags Durvesh close to the pole while Avik Singha loses his footing, allowing a simple touch from Nikhil B.

Mumbai Khiladis 25-25 Rajasthan Warriors

21:12 (IST)24 AUG 2022

21:11 (IST)24 AUG 2022

21:10 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' Akshay Ganpule puts in a hand touch on Gajanan Shengal and it is the latter who has to depart. 

21:08 (IST)24 AUG 2022

4' Well, they have wiped out this batch in absolutely no time! It started off with Sengar sending back Vijay Hajare, a move that was largely done by the Mumbai skipper to perhaps protect Sreejesh. However, it is to no avail as Mohammed Taseen traps the ace defender in the cross lane followed shortly by a sky dive from Mahajar Jamadar to get the better of Abhishek!

Mumbai Khiladis 23-19 Rajasthan Warriors

21:06 (IST)24 AUG 2022

Batch 2 of the Mumbai Khiladis is on the mat and the Warriors have opted for the Power Play!

21:05 (IST)24 AUG 2022

3' A sky dive from Nikhil B just moments before Mumbai got the defense bonus, has resulted in Rohan Kore being dismissed!

Mumbai Khiladis 23-11 Rajasthan Warriors

21:04 (IST)24 AUG 2022

2' Nikhil B is mighty confident that he had gotten a touch, which has not been granted by the on-field umpires. The review is successful! There was a touch there indeed and what more, it is a sky dive as well! Milind Kurpe makes his way back to the bench. 

21:02 (IST)24 AUG 2022

2' A sky dive from Suresh Sawant opens the Warriors' account where attacking is concerned. It is Pathan who has to make his way back.

Mumbai Khiladis 23-5 Rajasthan Warriors

20:58 (IST)24 AUG 2022

At the end of Turn 1: Mumbai Khiladis 23-2 Rajasthan Warriors

It has been a much better showing by the Warriors where defense is concerned. That has been the problem area for the Warriors but they have not leaked nearly as many points in the defense this time around. The Mumbai Khiladis will perhaps rue the fact that they were not able to cross the 25-point mark. Nonetheless, they will look to defend well now. 

20:56 (IST)24 AUG 2022

7' Gets chased in the cross lane and a running touch from Milind Kurpe on Sushant fetches them a couple of points. A sky dive follows from Avik Singha who sends back quite a tired Bharat Kumar, who collapses on his chest after being tagged.

Mumbai Khiladis 23-2 Rajasthan Warriors

20:55 (IST)24 AUG 2022

6' A comfortable touch for the Wazir, Durvesh Salunke, as it is Dhananjoy Singh who tries to change directions in front of the Wazir. 

20:54 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' DREAM RUN! Akshay survives the two and a half minute mark has been breached! And almost immediately after, he surrenders to the attacker and that will be adjudged as a self out!

Mumbai Khiladis 16-2 Rajasthan Warriors

20:52 (IST)24 AUG 2022

5' A pole dive fetches the Khiladis three points as Sreejesh S sends back Abhijit Patil, who was putting in quite a good show. 

20:50 (IST)24 AUG 2022

4' Self Out! Sushant Hajare goes into the lobby as he was pursued in the cross lane.

Mumbai Khiladis 10-0 Rajasthan Warriors

20:50 (IST)24 AUG 2022

Batch 1 of the Warriors is in now and the Khiladis have opted for the Power Play!

20:49 (IST)24 AUG 2022

2' Dilraj Sengar has to make his way back to the bench as Avik Singha gets in a running touch after following him in the cross lane. And soon after, a relentless pursuit from Durvesh Salunke sends back the Warriors' ace player, Hrushikesh!

Mumbai Khiladis 5-0 Rajasthan Warriors

20:47 (IST)24 AUG 2022

Mumbai Khiladis 3-0 Rajasthan Warriors

20:45 (IST)24 AUG 2022

Right, change of strategies for the Warriors as they send in Batch 2 to begin proceedings first up. 

20:41 (IST)24 AUG 2022

The Mumbai Wazir, Durvesh, hinted that there will be a few changes to the side, with the youngsters being given an opportunity to showcase their talents on the big stage.

20:37 (IST)24 AUG 2022

Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 16 of Ultimate Kho Kho 2022 where the Mumbai Khiladis will square-off agains the Rajasthan Warriors at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Pune. 

Right, both teams desperately need a win here, don't they? The Khiladis and the Warriors are languishing at the bottom of the points table and as the gap between them and the other side increases, the players will start getting more desperate for a victory. Mumbai Khiladis only have a solitary win to their name, one which incidentally came against the Warriors themselves. Their Wazir, Durvesh Salunke, has been fantastic thus far and is the third-best Wazir in the tournament. The Rajasthan Warriors have not had anything to write home about this season, crashing to four defeats on the trot. They will be looking to exact revenge but more than a change of plans, the Warriors might just need a change of mindset going into the second half of the tournament. 

Right then, it promises to be an absolute nail-biter as both sides battle it out for a much-needed win. Sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that unfolds over the course of this contest!
