Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s coverage of the ProKabaddi fixture between Dabang Delhi vs Tamil Thalaivas in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

The scores will read as Delhi vs Tamil:

FULL-TIME UPDATE: Tamil Thalaivas draw 37-37 with Dabang Delhi

37-37 Naveen takes the bonus to negate the chance of losing from here, will he attempt a touchpoint as well? No, he is happy with a bonus as the game ends in a tie. 37 apiece but it is the Thalaivas who will feel that they have lost the game given they were leading in the majority of the game.

36-37 Narender goes in the raid, and he picks Amit Hooda with less than 15 seconds, is this enough to win it from here? Given that Naveen will come in the last raid.
