Without further ado, here is what to expect from the teams who play in the first semi-finals of Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2.
Chennai Quick Guns
For Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2 fans, the very mention of Chennai Quick Guns means ‘complete team’. Why? Because they dominate the charts for attack and defence and have been the team that has, more often than not, stunned onlookers with their prowess to win games majestically. Boasting of a powerhouse and record-breaker in Ramji Kashyap (74 Attack Points, 18 Dream Runs), Laxman Gawas (22 Attack Points, 10 Dream Runs) and Madan (18 Dream Runs), the Quick Guns have been simply unbeatable in UKK Season 2 except for one particular team - the Telugu Yoddhas.
Just as Chennai Quick Guns, the Telugu Yoddhas have never stopped in their tracks to keep pushing themselves beyond the limit to chase success in Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2. The Yoddhas will enter this tie with the confidence of being the only team to beat the Quick Guns this term and also that they were the side that eliminated their opponents today in their last Playoff matchup. The likes of Pratik Waikar (52 Attack Points, 5 Dream Runs), Rahul Mandal (50 Attack Points, 7 Dream Runs), Aditya Ganpule (34 Attack Points, 8 Dream Runs), Arun Gunki (32 Attack Points, 5 Dream Runs) and Avdhut Patil (8 Attack Points, 8 Dream Runs) will look to intrude the party of the Chennai Quick Guns and cut short their ‘Dream Run’ in UKK Season 2.
Overall, the Telugu Yoddhas have a narrow advantage in the head-to-head record with three wins in five meetings in Ultimate Kho Kho against the Chennai Quick Guns. Regarding their matchups this season, both teams have claimed a win each, with the Yoddhas having the last laugh in the latest encounter.
