Pro Kabaddi League 2018, Tamil Thalaivas vs UP Yoddha as it happened: Yoddhas beat Thalaivas 37-32

UP Yoddha were too good for Tamil Thalaivas and beat them 37-32 in their first match of the tournament.

By HT Correspondent | Oct 08, 2018 23:10 IST

UP Yoddha started brightly and never looked back to beat Tamil Thalaivas 37-32 in a Pro Kabaddi League 2018 match on Monday. Prashant Kumar Rai (8 points) led the Yoddha’s scoring chart while Narender did the damage with his tackles. Mistakes from Thalaivas defence didn’t help as they conceded as many as three technical points in a match where they fell behind early on and never recovered. Ajay Thakur scored 12 points for Tamil Thalaivas but it just wasn’t enough.
