Pro Kabaddi 2016: Puneri Paltan and Dabang Delhi Clash Ends in a Tie

Puneri Paltan began their campaign of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi Season 4 with a loss against the Telugu Titans. Coming on to this game, the expectations were riding high. Dabang Delhi too on the other hand, failed to win their opening game of the new season. With both sides dying to register their first win, this had to be a special Tuesday evening for the game of kabaddi.

And the teams didn’t disappoint. In a nail-biter of a game, the captain Manjit Chillar stole a last minute point for the Paltans tying the score at 27-27.

A poor start

Paltans started the game poorly though, going down 5-0 in no time. Then Sonu Narhwal started rallying the team with his raid point that opened the books for the Paltans. Thereafter the game was a roller coaster ride which saw both teams exchanging leads on multiple occasions.

The first lead for the Paltans came in the 12th minute and by half time rolled around, Dabang Delhi was trailing 10-14 despite having a strong start.



Comeback of the opponent

It was now time for the Dabangs to mount a comeback as the second half kicked off. They successfully tied it up at 18 each soon enough. As the game moved on, it became impossible to pick a winner – it was that close an encounter. At the very last minute, ManjitChillar who had a very quiet game so far scored a crucial raid and a tackle point that ended up tying the score at 27 points all.

The concerns remain for both teams, though regarding the number of errors committed during the course of the match. Either side would be disappointed not to have secured a victory at the Dome @NCSI. However, the fans went home contented after such a cliffhanger of a match.

PuneriPaltans remain seated at the top of the table with 14 points after this tie while Dabang Delhi struggled down at the sixth spot with three.

He was adjudged the Most Valuable Player (MVP) the season before the last one. Good news is, he was retained by the Paltans for the upcoming season. He is undoubtedly one of the most skillful all-rounders in the entire league. You wouldn’t want to disappoint the captain now, would you?

In Great Form

They finished third, last time out. Some of the matches were etched in memory, the lads performed so well. This time can only be better. With the core of the team retained, Paltans are being touted to go all the way in the upcoming season starting on 25th June. Who are they kicking off against, you ask? Telugu Titans. Remember last time they met?

New Kids on the Block

The new guys bought in the auction are already being hyped a lot. Why not, if the biggest of them are RavinderPahal, the ex Dabang Delhi defender and SonuNarwal, previously the raider of Jaipur Pink Panthers!

#Gheuntak and #MePanPaltan

You cannot be seriously using these trends on Twitter with passion and not thinking about going to the stadium to cheer your hearts out clad in that saffron jersey.

For the Love of the Game

If you really love kabaddi and happen to be a Paltan fan living in the vicinity of Mumbai, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be at the Dome@NSCI.

Photoblog: Khursheed Jah Devdi -Hyderabad


Nawab Khursheed Jah Paigah was the maternal grandson of the third Nizam of Hyderabad. Khursheed Jah Baradari was his residence, near the Charminar. It is a gorgeous Palladian mansion with imposing pillars and a strikingly European design. While it is commonly referred to as a baradari (literally means having 12 doors) or a devdi (sort of like a haveli) it is counted as one of Hyderabad’s best palaces._MG_3318-1

The construction of the palace was started by Sir Khursheed Jah’s grandfather, and completed by his father. It is said, that when the Paigah family lived in this palace, it was full of expensive furniture, chandeliers and paintings, and that the extensive grounds adjoining it, had immaculately kept gardens with fountains and little reservoirs. Apparently, in addition to the horses in his stables, Sir Khursheed Jah also kept ostriches!

In 1956, the Hyderabad state was dissolved as part of the linguistic reorganisation of states and Telangana was merged with former Andhra State to form Andhra Pradesh. Following a movement for separation, it was awarded separate statehood on 2 June 2014. Hyderabad will continue to serve as the joint capital city for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for a period of not more than ten years.
