PKL 10: Simple Plan Worked For Fazel Atrachali as Gujarat Giants Beats Pawan Sehrawat's Telugu Titans

In a thrilling opening match of the 10th season of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), Gujarat Giants emerged victorious against Telugu Titans with a final score of 38-32. The seasoned captain Fazel Atrachali strategically led his team to success, executing a simple yet effective plan that kept Telugu Titans' star raider, Pawan Sehrawat, at bay.

Gujarat Giants' defensive brilliance was on full display as they successfully neutralized Pawan Sehrawat, keeping him off the mat for a significant portion of the match. The key to their success lay in a well-executed strategy that limited Pawan's impact and disrupted the Telugu Titans' offensive rhythm. Gujarat's defence kept Pawan Sehrawat out of action for more than 11 minutes.

However, Gujarat Giants quickly took control, with Fazel Atrachali leading from the front with advanced tackles and timely interventions. The first half ended with Telugu Titans holding a narrow lead of 16-13, but it was in the second half that Gujarat Giants truly shone.

The turning point came when Sonu, the lanky raider from Gujarat, executed a sensational 5-point raid, leaving Telugu Titans stunned. He also secured the first Super 10 of PKL Season 10. Pawan Sehrawat challenged the decision through a review, but the video referral upheld the massive five-pointer, securing a substantial lead for Gujarat Giants.
