Full Time! Odisha Juggernauts 48 - 39 Telugu Yoddhas.
The Odisha Juggernauts' juggernaut goes on as they register an incredible sixth win in a row and look on course to finish at the top of the table. The Telugu Yoddhas had the advantage at the innings break, holding a 4-point lead. However, their attack fell flat in Turn 3, with the Juggernauts showing why they're among the best defensive teams in the league. Vishal did incredibly well to secure a 6-point Dream Run, turning the game in Odisha's favour. There were no miracles for the Yoddhas in Turn 4 as they slumped to a third successive defeat. Despite not looking like it, they're now only a point ahead of the Chennai Quick Guns on the points table and need to buck up in their last two matches.
That brings to an end the coverage of this intriguing encounter. That's not all the action for tonight, however. Switch tabs to catch the Rajasthan Warriors take on the Gujarat Giants. Until then, this is me, Shreyas, signing off!

7' Another decision reviewed by the Juggernauts and it's a self-out! The Yoddhas can't take anything from this game. Can Arun Gunki do some damage limitation? That's a negative! Another Skydive from Subhasis Santra increases the Juggernauts' lead.

6' The Yoddhas can't score any more points and they'll look to keep the score difference to within 3 points, if not dare I say, tie the match! Well, that aged well. A Sky Dive makes it increasingly improbable for them to even get a point from this.

20:12 (IST)28 AUG 2022

7' Vishal is gunning for the 6-pointer but is given out. He reviews and after some deliberation, he's declared Not Out! Can he make it a 6-point Dream Run? Indeed he can! Vishal single-handedly changing this match! A Skydive does eventually get the better of him but terrific work nevertheless!

Half-Time! At the end of Turn 2, Odisha Juggernauts 18 - 22 Telugu Yoddhas:
The Telugu Yoddhas will definitely be the happier side and rightly so. They have defended better in this match, with captain Pratik getting a Dream Run. Also noticeable was the Juggernauts' struggle to score attacking points. Key attacker Subhasis Santra couldn't impact the game much, and they'll expect him to do better in Turn 4. This game still hangs in the balance and how the Juggernauts defend in this Turn could determine which way this game goes. The second half coming up!

A cagey first turn as the Odisha Juggernauts manage to keep the Yoddhas to a manageable 20-point lead despite not scoring any defensive points in their own. The quality in Odisha's defense and the Yoddhas' attack was highlighted as neither side could really get the better of the other. Can the Yoddhas defend their lead or will the Juggernauts strike back with their attack?

19:42 (IST)28 AUG 2022

Good Evening! Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda's coverage of Match 23 of Ultimate Kho Kho 2022!
The Odisha Juggernauts and the Telugu Yoddhas go head-to-head in a battle of the heavyweights in match 23 of Ultimate Kho Kho 2022. The Juggernauts and the Gujarat Giants are the first two teams to qualify for the playoffs. Odisha is in top form heading into this match and looks like the team to beat this season. They have won all their last five matches and will look to consolidate their position at the top of the points table with a win here. 
Despite losing three matches, the Telugu Yoddhas' points difference of 63 is only one less than the Juggernauts. It shows how dominant the Yoddhas can be when they're on song, and they'll look to do just that. They come into this one after successive defeats and will be desperate to turn it around. 
We saw two one-sided contests yesterday, and here's hoping we see a nailbiter to kick off this Super Sunday. Stay tuned as I, Shreyas, bring you all the action from this cracking encounter.
