Three Matchdays down, the Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2 has superseded all set expectations ahead of the season - be it entertainment, on-mat rivalry, surprise turnarounds, or fan support!
Today’s schedule sees Telugu Yoddhas up against Rajasthan Warriors, while champions Odisha Juggernauts entertain Mumbai Khiladis at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Cuttack. Wait! Does this sound familiar? Well, these four teams played on the opening day, and if you witnessed all the action on December 24, you know what is brewing…..
Let’s take a sneak peek into what to expect.
Match 7: Telugu Yoddhas vs Rajasthan Warriors
Telugu Yoddhas may have opened their Season 2 account with one win and one defeat, but in terms of what they bring to the table, the Yoddhas are a team that are climbing the stats charts and are looking to consolidate their position on the points table. Pratik Waikar has been at the forefront with 18 Wazir points, 14 Dive points, and 4 Pole Dives, and he will be a natural threat to the Warriors.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Warriors are searching for their first win of Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2. The Warriors fell to heavy defeats against Odisha Juggernauts and Gujarat Giants and will be looking for inspiration from skipper Majahar Jamadar to turn over a new leaf.
Match 8: Mumbai Khiladis vs Odisha Juggernauts
Mumbai Khiladis are coming off a 30-34 defeat to Gujarat Giants and will look to bounce back to winning ways on Matchday 4. Aniket Pote has been the torchbearer for the team this term, as was evident in the surprise fightback in Turn 4 against Gujarat on Matchday 3. Confident with how they were ready to take on the pressure, the Khiladis will fancy giving a headache to defending champions Odisha Juggernauts.
On the other hand, Odisha appeared complacent for the first time this season as they squandered the lead against Chennai Quick Guns and settled for a 34-34 stalemate on Matchday 3. The hosts, sitting second on the points table, will look to roar back to the top with a commanding performance against Mumbai Khiladis, with attackers Manoj Patil and Deepak Sahoo leading the march to a possible win.
