The unexpected twists and turns have come early in 2024, courtesy of Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2.

Gujarat Giants, who ended 2023 with four wins in four games, would see their unbeaten status end at the hands of new table-toppers Chennai Quick Guns. The Giants will quickly look to bounce back when they lock horns with Mumbai Khiladis. But before that, they will be keen to watch how Chennai can preserve their five-game unbeaten run in UKK Season 2 as they take on defending champions Odisha Juggernauts.

Here is what to expect from Matchday 9 of Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2.

Match 17: Chennai Quick Guns vs Odisha Juggernauts

Chennai Quick Guns began 2024 by ending Gujarat Giants’ reign at the summit of the UKK points table, but now they face a stern test against current holders Odisha Juggernauts. If one can remember, the Quick Guns came from behind to secure a 34-34 draw when the teams last met in Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2.

With Chennai asserting their status for their splendid ‘comebacks’ while Odisha are championing the cause in the powerplay, Kho Kho fans can expect a fiery contest tonight. 

Match 18: Mumbai Khiladis vs Gujarat Giants

It’s the Western Derby tonight! Gujarat Giants, who until recently held the 100 per cent record in Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2, will be on the hunt for points against the Mumbai Khiladis.

Regarding the head-to-head record, the Gujarat Giants maintain the ascendancy with three wins in three meetings. This also includes the recent matchup where a late Dream Run ensured the Giants steered clear of the Khiladis.

What will be the outcome of the 4th Western Derby in Ultimate Kho Kho? Will the Mumbai Khiladis condemn a surprise defeat to the Gujarat Giants, or conversely, will the Giants ‘Sky Dive’ to a 4-0 lead?
