UP Yoddha: PKL Season 10 Retained and Released List

In Season 9 of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL), UP Yoddha was one of the best performers without any doubt. They went on to finish at number four in the points table. They played 22 matches in the league and went on to win 12 out of those 22 matches. They finished with 71 points, which was certainly one of the best in the league. However, this is not the best of the tournament. The best performers of season 9, in terms of points, were the Jaipur Pink Panthers. They were able to collect 82 points for their team. Now it is going to be interesting to see the plan UP Yoddha has for PKL season 10.

Statistics of season 9 for UP Yoddha

Played - 22
Win - 12
Loss - 8
Toss - 2
Points - 71 

This is certainly a brilliant performance they have given in the last season. However, it is certain that they are going to try their best to go up the ladder of the Points table. The biggest threat for the UP Yoddha will be the Jaipur Pink Panthers. They were the best performers of season 9, and this year again they’ll try to be the best. UP Yoddha only needs to be consistent with their performance.
