The opening match of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 saw U Mumba beat Bengaluru Bulls 46-30 in what was a one-sided contest. Riding on Abhishek Singh's 19 raid points, the Season 2 champions registered their first win of the season in emphatic fashion as Bengaluru Bulls were left searching for answers. 

The second match of the evening saw Telugu Titans play out a thrilling 40-40 tie against Tamil Thalaivas. It was a typical seesaw battle in the south Indian derby on the opening day of Pro Kabaddi as neither side looked in complete control. Siddharth Desai, 11 points was the top scorer of the match across both teams. 

The final match of the day saw defending champions Bengal Warriors play a new-look U.P. Yoddha set-up. The Warriors started the match in sublime fashion as they were 10-3 up in the first six minutes of the match. However, Pardeep Narwal's multipoint raids brought the Yoddha's back into the match. In the end, some smart play by Bengal Warriors ensured they ended on the right side of the result with a convincing 38-33 win.
