The Bikana riders also went toe-to-toe with the KIngs and the first 20 minutes ended with a scoreline of 20-21.
Despite showing signs of champion teams, the Shekhawati Kings were unable to carry the momentum into the second half, and the Bikana Riders took advantage of the opportunity to deny the Kings a win in their first match of the season as both teams were tied at 39-39. The Riders will be pleased with their performance last night, as they demonstrated high levels of consistency, willpower, and grit.
Raider Sourabh Bharadwaj from the Bikana Riders was given the man of the match award for his outstanding performance as he picked a total of 8 raid points and 1 super raid and helped his team to make a comeback .This match could go down as one of the best matches of the RKL season 2.
