The U.P. Yoddhas are back in action after four exciting legs of the Pro Kabaddi 2023-24. They played seven games in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Pune and Chennai, then moved to the following four cities, starting at home in Noida.

The first four legs were tough for them, as they only managed to win a few games. However, the Yoddhas remained confident that they would improve as they progressed.

The next four legs posed challenges for the Yoddhas, but they did not give up. Players like Pardeep Narwal, Surender Gill, and the entire team put in their best efforts to give the fans an enjoyable experience. Despite facing difficulties, the Yoddhas remained resilient, keeping their spirits high throughout the tough times.

Let’s look at how the second quarter went for the U.P. Yoddhas in the Pro Kabaddi 2023-24.
