The young raider playing his first season of Pro Kabaddi fetched points with ease, producing classic Kabaddi moves such as the ‘Dubki’ in the process, as Pune clinched their first All-Out with seven minutes remaining in the first half.Rohit Kumar produced flashes of brilliance to lead a mellowed comeback for Bengaluru but Surjeet’s High 5 and Mohite’s 9 raid points meant Pune went into the half time with a five-point lead (20-15).Pune secured their second All-Out of the match in the fifth minute after the restart to open up a nine-point lead as Mohite secured his Super 10. But Bengaluru were not ready to be tamed without a fight and multi-point raids by Sehrawat and Rohit Kumar reduced the deficit to five points. But facing an All-Out, Krishna produced three successful tackles including two Super Tackles to help Pune open up the lead again.Titans play out thrilling tie with PiratesTelugu Titans played out a highly entertaining 42-42 tie against Patna Pirates in a Pro Kabaddi match at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Mahalunge, Balewadi, Pune on Friday.Pardeep Narwal, with 17 raid points, was once again the star for Patna as they came back from being six points down to nearly winning the match.
