The first day of play offs of the Sheru Classic Maha Mumbai Kabaddi League ended on a bang with three men’s teams from each category entering the Maha Final for the 28th of August 2022.
The first match of the day, the Qualifier 1 from the sub-juniors category saw Mumba che Maharaje make a stomping entry into the Maha Team Finals with the help of Om Kudale’s stellar performance. The second finalist’s spot will be filled after the qualifier 2 match that will be happening on the 27th of August.
While the sub-juniors Mumba che Maharaje made it into the finals, the seniors category team lost their chance as the Mumbai Ultras Kabaddi Club overpowered with 44 points in the Eliminators , entering in the Qualifier 2. Namdev Iswalkar, a force to reckon with from the Sheru Classic MMKL, was given the player of the match award for this match.
The qualifier 1 for juniors category got the most attention as the Borivali Bahubalis entered the finals by defeating the Raje Chandra Rao Warriors with 17 points. The eliminator match between the Gavali Dhurandhar and Namo Bharat Chembur finished all hopes for the latter as the Dhurandhars with Akshay Tawde’s all round performance got themselves into the second qualifiers.
