The 2021-22 edition of the Pro Kabaddi League progressed on January 13 with two one-sided matches. Defending champions Bengal Warriors locked horns with the Surjeet Singh-led Tamil Thalaivas in the first match. The Warriors cruised to a 9-point win over the Thalaivas and ended their six-match unbeaten streak.
Later in the match, Puneri Paltan took on season two champions U Mumba in a Maha-derby. While most fans expected it to be a closely contested match, the Pune-based franchise absolutely crushed their rivals and recorded a 19-point victory.
