Pro Kabaddi 2019 HIGHLIGHTS, Telugu Titans vs Puneri Paltan: Catch all the live updates from the Pro Kabaddi 2019 match between Telugu Titans and Puneri Paltan through News18 Sports' live blog. There will only be one game on matchday 62 at the Tau Devilal Sports Complex in Panchkula, Haryana on Thursday as Telugu Titans lost to Puneri Paltan 50-53 and their bid to stay alive in the race to playoffs have now ended. Siddharth 'Baahubali' Desai could not perform well when Telugu Titans needed it today and that cost the team even though Rakesh Gowda and Farhad Milaghardan stepped up with Super 10s.
While the first half completely belonged to Puneri Paltan, as their raiders and defenders did an excellent all-round job to inflict two all-outs on Telugu. Surjeet Singh got a High 5 with five successful tackles as well. Puneri even started the second half with a bang getting a third all-out on Telugu Titans. However, after that Telugu turned on the screws and Puneri Paltan completely lost the plot and had a massive meltdown that almost cost them the victory. Rakesh and Farhad combined to pump up the pressure on Puneri Paltan and most of them wilted under that, except for Emda Sedaghatnia, whose one Super-raid helped Puneri Paltan stay at a distance from Telugu and hold on for a victory.
