Some excellent game awareness from Surender Gill in the dying moments ensured U.P. Yoddha clinch a narrow one-point victory and register their first win of Pro Kabaddi Season 8. 

With the game interestingly poised at 35-34 in favour of U.P. Yoddha with just one second left in the game, Surender Gill scored a bonus off the final raid and surrendered himself as Patna Pirates were left in anguish. Gill's heroics helped U.P. Yoddha maintain the lead and win the match 36-35. 

Earlier, star raider Pardeep Narwal playing his first match against his former side started off with a bang although he was unable to score freely as Patna Pirates' defense managed to pin him down on multiple occasions. Pardeep though managed to end the match with 12 points in his kitty.

For Patna Pirates, Iranian Mohammadreza Chiyaneh (7) was the star of the day as he scored his first High 5 in Pro Kabaddi. He was ably supported by Sachin Tanwar (10) and Prashanth Rai (8) who helped resurrect Patna Pirates' after a shaky first half.
