Its historic, it’s consecutive and it’s Patna Pirates who are the champions of Pro Kabaddi League Season 4. Patna Pirates season 3 title was on line when the team pulled off magnificent victory over Jaipur Pink Panthers. It was shocker for Jaipur Pink Panthers as they were expecting to repeat their season one record. The young and talented 20yrs old Pradeep Narwal scored 16 points on raids to take the match away from Jaipur. Pradeep scored his 10 points in first half making Jaipur crawl for scores.
The match looked more like Pradeep Vs Jasvir as the young talent was head-to-head with experienced Jasvir. The Dubki King of Pro Kabaddi League Pradeep was sensational on the mat scoring point on each raid he made. The point difference of eight was too much for Jaipur Pink Panthers to fill as the match end with 37-29 score line in favor for the Patna Pirates. If you haven’t seen the match trust me you missed all the excitement and noises made by 7000 people in the auditorium.
In all the excitement it was disheartening for home team Telugu Titans as they missed the 3rd spot with 5 points and lost the game against Puneri Paltan. Even without Manjit Chillar and Ravindre Behal Puneri Paltan was playing excellent and giving Telugu Titans run for their money. The 18 points scored by Rahul Chaudhari wasn’t enough to win the match in favor of Telugu Titans. 18 points is the highest scored made by any raider in a match but of no use.
The star studded crowd of Abhishek Bachchan, Hritik Roshan, Rana Daggubati, V V S Laxman, Pullela Gopichand and many more were adding excitement in the match. Abhishek was heartbroken when Jaipur lost the final match but he was happy that his team made to the finals. Jaipur Pink Panthers were not satisfied with only 50 lakh rupees 2nd prize and will surely be worth watching in PKL-5.
In season 3 Pradeep Narwal was the Rising Star of the Game and in season 4 is the Most Promising Star of the game. Not only he from Patna Pirates but Fazal as well who supported the team in defense scoring maximum point of tournament with 52 points. The defense of Patna was doing excellent with the Iranian Jodi of Fazal & Hazi. Telugu Titans captain Rahul scored maximum raid points of the tournament and got awarded for the same. Ajay Kumar of Puneri Paltan was the surprise of the season 4 and rising star of the Game.
In earlier seasons, Pro Kabaddi League the game wasn’t a household name and people were least interested in the game. Now with the attention of sponsors, crowd and management the Pro Kabaddi League is going next step with Kabaddi World Cup-in October 2016. So this is not the end of Kabaddi League it is just the beginning and 12 teams will be competing against each other in October to lift the Kabaddi World Cup.
