The second was game played at the same venue between Bengaluru Bulls and Telugu Titans. Telugu Titans were looking for some comeback as they have lost 5 out of 6 games that they played at their home. Both the teams were looking very confident today and the raiders were finding it very difficult to steal points.
A very close first half finish where Bulls were leading the game by just a point (9 – 8). The second game was much more exciting than the first half, with a fantastic climax. Bulls played really well in the second half with two all outs on Titans, with the last two minutes remaining they were 5 points ahead (20 – 15) against the Titans. A successful 2 points raid from rakshit, also getting a green card from umpire. Then Rohit Kumar’s unsuccessful raid following a 2 point raid from captain Rahul Chaudhary which level up the score 20 – 20.
Ashish Kumar and Rahul Chaudhary scored one point each in the last raid of their respective teams and the game ended in a tie with both team scoring 21 points. This is the second draw in Vivo Pro Kabaddi League Season 5.
This is why Rahul Chaudhary is the best raider in the history of Pro Kabaddi League:
