Telugu Yoddhas to Odisha Juggernauts; While Rajasthan Warriors to face Mumbai Khiladis in UKK
Cuttack, December 30, 2023: Telugu Yoddhas will be aiming to get back to the winning ways when they take on the defending champions Odisha Juggernauts in the ongoing Ultimate Kho Kho Season 2 on Sunday, while Rajasthan Warriors will continue their hunt for the maiden win against Mumbai Khiladis at Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Cuttack.
Telugu Yoddhas faced a crushing defeat against table toppers Gujarat Giants in their last match and are currently sitting in the fourth position in the table with six points from four games. Captain of Telugu Yoddhas Pratik Waikar stated that they will be focused on not repeating the mistakes they made in the game against Gujarat.
Promoted by Amit Burman in collaboration with the Kho Kho Federation of India, Ultimate Kho Kho became a huge hit in the first season, emerging as India’s third-largest non-cricket league in terms of television viewership. It also became the first Indian sports league to secure Series A funding, courtesy of the UK-based BNP Group.
“We did well against Gujarat in the first innings and applied our plan perfectly but things went downhill after I got out during defending. Our team gave away a lot of fouls and we will work on it, so, we do not repeat the same mistakes in the next match against Odisha” commented Waikar.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Warriors are still searching for their first team in the league after narrowly going down against Chennai Quick Guns in their previous game. Prajwal KH won four points in the last game and recognized every upcoming contest as a do-or-die match.
Prajwal said, “We have six matches in hand and every match is a do-or-die for us from here on in the league. So, we will try to go on the mat with the right combination to do better in defence and register victories.”
The exciting action of Season 2 will be telecasted on Sony Sports Network’s channels and SonyLIV with live coverage of daily two matches starting at 7:30 PM IST.
