The Pro Kabaddi League started off in scintillating fashion with Telugu Titans beating Tamil Thalaivas and Puneri Paltans thumping U Mumba in the Maharashtra Derby on the opening night of the season.
The action moves into the second day as inaugural champions Jaipur Pink Panthers look to start off their campaign in emphatic fashion against Dabang Delhi KC at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad. The match shall kick off at 8 pm Indian Standard Time.
The Rajasthan based franchisee shall be led by their new skipper Manjeet Chillar who shall form a formidable raiding combination with Jasvir Singh upfront while Dabang Delhi KC will look to put behind a dismal season under new skipper Meraj Sheykh. The Panthers have invaluable experience in the form of Manjeet and Jasvir, apart from another highly experienced Navneet Gautam.
Meanwhile, Delhi has a relatively inexperienced side boasting of a rather young squad as compared to their opponents Jaipur, the battle could boil down to a face-off between youth and experience.
