    Thank you for joining in!

    And it is time we draw curtains on a thrilling first day of the PKL. If the first contest between the boys from Mumbai and Bengaluru was completely lopsided, the second match made up for it with nothing to separate the Telugu Titans and Tamil Thalaivas at the end of 40 minutes.

    Pardeep Narwal, on the other hand, made a forgettable debut for UP Yoddha as they crumbled to the defending champions Bengal Warriors in a tight contest.

    The defending champions start their campaign with a resounding 38-33 win over the UP Yoddha. They managed to keep Pardeep Narwal off the court for a long time, thanks to Nabibakhsh, and they reaped the rewards!
