New Delhi: Hello and welcome to the live blog of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017, today's first match is between Gujarat Fortunegiants and Tamil Thalaivas.

PREVIEW: Iranian, Fazel Atrachali has been churning out consistent performances throughout the season. Similar would be expected from the Gujarat player. He performs well, it is a given that his team will come up with the goods too. Being second on the table, there are not many concerns for the team.

Full-time: Gujarat mess this up completely. Ajay gets two touch points in the dying seconds of the match. They win 35-34. What an upset this is.

Though Thalaivas did pull back a few points through Gulia and Thakur, but it was too little, too late. Thakur in the next raid gets 3 points with a super raid that brings them really close to Gujarat. All s happening here suddenly. It's 34-32.

Dan Geon Lee comes in for Thalaivas. Let's see what the Korean can do in the last 10 minutes of the match. Gujarat lead 30-20.

Sachin, another Gujarat player gets a super raid. Takes three points. Chances of Thalaivas making a comeback in the match look bleak. It's 28-18. 

Sep 26, 2017 8:31 pm (IST)

Lot of discussions going on in the Thalaivas camp. Understandably so. The coach looks a worried man. They have a mountain to climb in the second half.  

Sep 26, 2017 8:24 pm (IST)

Half-time: Thakur and Paranjapan get two points for Thalaivas. Reduce their lead to seven points now. Gujarat lead 20-13. 

Sep 26, 2017 8:18 pm (IST)

Thalaivas raiders barring Thakur have been mediocre. That problem is showing. Too much pressure on just one man to handle. In the meantime, he gets a bonus point. It's 16-9 in favour of Gujarat. 

Sep 26, 2017 8:14 pm (IST)

Woah! Sukesh gets a super raid. Touches three defenders and gets three crucial points. It's early lead for Gujarat. 13-6.

Chandran and Sachin get two successful raids. Thalaivas defence being tested here. It's 8-6 in favour of Gujarat.

Good start for the Tamil Thalaivas. Ajay Thakur gets a point and with that completes his 400 raid points in PKL career. It's 5-4.

Sep 26, 2017 7:54 pm (IST)

The battle lines are drawn. The task is cut out for Gujarat Fortunegiants and Tamil Thalaivas. A win in the previous win will give a lot of confidence to the struggling Thalaivas.
