Puneri Paltan Storms into PKL 10 Finals with Dominating Win over Patna Pirates

In a dominant performance, Puneri Paltan secured a dominant victory against Patna Pirates in the 1st semi-final of Pro Kabaddi Season 10, solidifying their spot in the finals. The final score stood at 37-21, showcasing Paltan's exceptional strategy and execution throughout the match.

The first half began with a close neck-and-neck battle. Aslam Inamdar, Puneri Paltan's captain and raider, opened the scoring with a bonus point in the first raid. Both teams traded points, with Patna briefly taking the lead at 7-5 thanks to a raid point by Sudhakar.

However, the tide started to turn around the 10-minute mark. Puneri Paltan's defence tightened, with Mohammadreza Shadlou playing a crucial role. He earned his first tackle point by bringing down Manjeet in a do-or-die raid, putting Patna on the back foot. Shortly after, Shadlou secured another crucial tackle point on Sandeep Kumar, triggering Patna's first All-Out with Puneri leading 13-9.


After the break, Puneri Paltan continued their dominance. Pankaj Mohite and Aslam executed successful raids, while Chiyaneh continued to shine in defense. He completed a "High 5" by securing an ankle hold on Sandeep, further extending Puneri's lead to 24-13.

Patna struggled to gain momentum, facing another All-Out with 8 minutes remaining in the match. Abinesh Nadarajan pushed Sandeep out of the mat, leaving Patna with only two players on the court. Despite a valiant effort by Patna's remaining raiders, Puneri Paltan maintained control, eventually securing a comfortable victory with a final score of 37-21.

Mohammadreza Shadlou Chiyaneh, the star performer of the match, played a pivotal role in Puneri Paltan's victory. His exceptional defensive performance, including a "High 5," significantly hampered Patna's raiding efforts.

This win marks Puneri Paltan's second consecutive appearance in the Pro Kabaddi League finals, demonstrating their consistent strength and strategic approach. Patna Pirates, on the other hand, will need to regroup and address their shortcomings ahead of next season.
