Ahead of the match, Jasveer Singh, Head Coach, UP Yoddhas said, “We had a good start, but that’s the game that is over and now we are looking ahead to our next game against U Mumba. Yes, we do have a psychological advantage historically, but this is a new team that we are facing, and the sport of Kabaddi is very unpredictable, so we need to be prepared to give in our best on the mat.”
