Pro Kabbadi League

Recommended Posts

Watched the 1st half of Mumbai-Jaipur. I had no idea Kabaddi was so interesting. Will definitely follow this League. BTW Jaipur is owned by the Bachchans so you've got a lot of star power in their side - Goddy, SRK,Amir Khan, Sunil Shetty etc. Mumbai is owned by Ronnie Screwala.

1st match was very good with mumbai dominating and then jaipur coming back , but this match is too one sided and delhi looking very bad. I am waiting for my team Patna Pirates. :aha: Indian national team captain also the captain of my city. :aha:

@Bold: Maybe that's the reason. There will be no competition. :--D Well i am enjoying this league.:dance: But i agree with your blood comment. matches in school were violent and much more aggressive than these matches.

Patna won today. :yay: The Telugu team were going with a tried and tested strategy to block the best player and they succeeded too in blocking the no 1 player and captain Rakesh but forgot about others and the 2nd best player of Patna became the man of the match. :giggle: BTW in yesterdays match a korean player JAN KUN LEE single handedly gave Bengal team their first win and he was not played in first match. :haha: Seems less violent but except for few matches every match has been a close one. Mumbai is clearly the team to beat and Telugu team the weakest but they stopped mumbai to a draw somehow. :cantstop:

Makes sense to have a more less blood thirsty format.....take a look at UFC for example....back in the day it used to be a no holds barred fight with lots of blood and knockouts....pretty gruesome and no one took it seriously .Once it became more strategy based with all the different aspects of MMA ,with submissions,K.O's and all these rules it is taken seriously as a real sport now. I support this initiative....Blood and Gruesome nature will get viewers for short term but to be taken seriously as an actual sport this is a good start

Agree. Less violence means more crowd because not everybody likes blood and excessive violence.

Mumbai are just too strong, they are still undefeated after 3 rounds :hatsoff:. Need something special from teams to beat them. Battle between No 1 mumbai and no 2 bengaluru was too one sided in favour of mumbai. Bangaluru and jaipur are running for 2nd spot. Patna and Bengal are next 2 teams. Jaipur has the best defence and Patna has the best attack but Mumbai has a good balance and thats why they win. The bottom 3 teams are just like IPL. :giggle: Telegu Titans (Won 1 out of 4) Dabangg Delhi (Lost 3 out of 4 home games. :haha:) Puneri Paltans (Won 1 out of 5) Mumbai are confirmed a place in Semi's. Rest spots still open. This was the move of the round from 3rd round from Pakistan's Wasim Sajjad: http://www.starsports.com/kabaddi/matchvideos/index.html?v=1343837 Now time for 4th round in Patna. :dance: Go Patna. :ohyeah:

On another note' date=' how many tickets do they even sell on average? Around 2,000? That too with two back-to-back matches in one stadium. Is that enough to keep running the franchises?[/quote'] Dont know about the exact numbers but i assume its around 2000 seeing the crowd. The price is Rs 250 for lowest ticket here.

Brilliant Match between Patna and Mumbai. Second tie of the tournament. But this mumbai team is seriously awesome. Patna is the only team that can currently compete with them. They are no 1 with 36 points and the 2nd team patna is at 19 points only. :hatsoff:

Abhishek Bachchan in town and the atmosphere was electric. :rock: One of my friends was in the stadium. The best crowd thanks to ABJr. We need more stars to make it more popular. Jaipur are looking another fixed team in semis. They were trailing by 4 points during Half time but destroyed telugu team in 2nd half. They won 49/29 . :haha: And hats off to Patna's fighting spirit. India cricket team could take some lessons. 2nd match in a row they came back from behind to tie the match. Trailing by 11 points at half time and then match finished as a tie. :clap:

Pro-Kabaddi is 2nd-most viewed tournament First week TV reach of the tournament touch 218 million he Pro-Kabaddi League (PKL), which debuted with a bang a couple of weeks back, has managed to continue to attract viewers. The first week reach of the Anand Mahindra and Charu Sharma promoted tournament is 218 million, second only to the annual twenty-20 extravaganza Indian Premier League's reach of 420 million in the 2014 edition. The PKL telecast on Star India’s sports channel Star Sports 2 (English feed) and its Hindi movie channel Star Gold (in Hindi), has outdone tournaments like the recently concluded FIFA World Cup (93 million), the 2013 edition of the Hero Hockey India League (62 million), Indian Badminton League 2013 (45 million) and Wimbledon 2014 (41 million). It has thus emerged as the country's second most viewed tournament this year. http://www.business-standard.com/article/companies/pro-kabaddi-is-2nd-most-viewed-tournament-114080900493_1.html Excellent.

U Mumba finally lose a game. Well played Bengaluru Bulls. This looked like the No 1 v No 2 Match. :clap: Still Patna v Mumbai was the best game till now in this tournament. :D Patna, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Jaipur are almost decided for top 4 unless some huge upsets happen.
