Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2 is officially entering the business end of its run, and here we are kicking off proceedings with the start of the penultimate round of fixtures.

The first game sees Mumbai Khiladis and Rajasthan Warriors battle in the hunt for morale-boosting final hurrahs of the respective beleaguered campaigns. Meanwhile, defending champions Odisha Juggernauts and Telugu Yoddhas will warm up for the Playoffs in their second meeting this term.

Here is what to expect from Matchday 13 of Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2.

Match 25: Mumbai Khiladis vs Rajasthan Warriors

With the Playoffs door shut for them, Mumbai Khiladis and Rajasthan Warriors will now play for pride with the first of their remaining two league games of the campaign.

Mumbai Khiladis, for starters, are coming off a disheartening defeat to Chennai Quick Guns last evening. However, they will enter the contest with the confidence that they have a 3-0 lead in the head-to-head record against Rajasthan Warriors and the fact that their solitary win in Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2 came against their upcoming opponents.

As for Rajasthan, each remaining game will be a miracle opportunity for the Warriors to end their campaign with a win on the board. Vrushab Wagh (8 Dream Runs, 8.13 minutes active time) has been the shining light in their underwhelming UKKS2, and he will be the player to watch out for in this fixture.

Match 26: Odisha Juggernauts vs Telugu Yoddhas

Defending champions Odisha Juggernauts saw their title defence remain on track following a narrow triumph over Gujarat Giants. With just two games left to wind up their league-stage program, the hosts will go all out and flex their muscles in defence and attack against the Telugu Yoddhas.

The Yoddhas, on the other hand, will look at the last two games as a stepping stone to finish the Ultimate Kho Kho group stage with a top-of-the-table finish. Captain Pratik Waikar, Aditya Ganpule, Arun Gunki and Rohan Mandal are among the significant flagbearers of the team’s success in UKK Season 2 and are poised to be the match-winners against the team that kept them one step short of lifting the Ultimate Kho Kho trophy.
