U Mumba hold leaders Telugu Titans in an exciting tie
Telugu Titans managed to claw back from defeat to hold a resurgent U Mumba 25-25 in a match that would have gone either way. With this the teams earned three points a piece in Pro Kabaddi League Season 4. The Telugu Titans remain in third place with 40 points and the U Mumba with 35 remain in fourth place. In the first half of Pro Kabaddi League 4, when the two teams met in Jaipur, Telugu Titans had beaten the U Mumba 33-22.
The hero of today’s humdinger was undoubtedly the tall Rahul Chaudhary who was trapped just once by the rival defense. He had a whopping tally of 8 points including three bonus points. And most of them came in the second half as he ran through the U Mumba to help his side inflict an all-out within ten minutes of resumption after the local side led at the break. The score stood at 18-23 to give hopes to the visitors in the last 5 minutes
Earlier, in the first half, a fine show by Anup had put Telugu Titans in a bad position with an all-out within seven minutes. He started with a super raid of three points and followed with a couple in another raid.
Rakesh too was his usual self. Having started confidently before the break he pocketed seven points in the latter half. His heroics brought his team back from the brink of defeat. Having been dismissed by their rivals for the second time when they were trailing, Telugu Titans held their nerve with Sandeep Narwal too pulling his weight. He got two points in the dying minutes which proved crucial in the ultimate analysis.
The applied pressure from the visitors began to weaken the home side. Eventually, U Mumba suffered their 1st all-out of the match to make it a 1 point game with 14 minutes left to play in the second half.
