Thrilling one-point win for Mumbai Che Raje

Thursday, May 16, 2019

Pune: Diljeet Chauhan and Karambir Singh led from the front to help Mumbai Che Raje take down the Telugu Bulls in a one-point thriller, winning 34-33 in the opening match of the Indo International Premiere Kabaddi League played at Balewadi on Tuesday.

Telugu Bulls started strong with their raiders picking out Mumbai defenders and taking an early 4-1 lead in the first quarter. Diljeet scored his first points in a do or die raid and with Vijay Rajput's quick raid and Ravi Desiwal’s ankle hold tackle Mumbai Che Raje managed to level the scores at 4-4. They traded blows for a while but Telugu Bulls managed to score 2 quick points in the last minute of the 1st quarter to lead the game 9-7.

Mumbai Che Raje came back strongly in the 2nd quarter with Diljeet claiming 3 points and also injuring his left shoulder in the process but he bounced back to take down Harhinder in his next raid. Suhas claimed the last victim to inflict the first all out and race to a 16-11 lead before closing out the second quarter at 20-14. Mumbai Che Raje did well to maintain the 6 point lead at 26-20 going into the final quarter.

In the final quarter, Telugu Bulls fought back to level the scores at 29-29 with 5 minutes on the clock. In a sudden twist, the umpires failed to inform Mumbai Che Raje about the do or die raid and an empty raid cost them 2 points with Telugu bulls now leading 32-30 with less than a minute to go.
