The first match of the Pro Kabaddi League ended with U Mumba winning the game by 6 points. U Mumba beat Telugu Titans by 31-25 to win the season opener. Abhishek Singh of U Mumba picked up his first super 10 of this season as he scored 10 raid points.
U Mumba skipper Fazel Atrachali scored 4 tackle points as he was looking in great form. The home team Telugu Titans lost the match by 6 points which means they will get a point for that. If the lost margin would have more than 7 they wouldn’t have got that point.
Siddharth Desai who made his debut for Telugu Titans this year did not have a great match as he scored just 5 raid points. Desai was in U Mumba last year which was also his debut in Pro Kabaddi League.
The next match is between defending champions Bengaluru Bulls and three-time champions Patna Pirates. The match will be played in the same venue at Hyderabad’s Gachibowli indoor stadium.
