Maharathi pulls out of PWL

Mumbai Maharathi pulled out of Pro Wrestling League (PWL) on Wednesday, alleging unfair play by the organisers.

"In a reaction to cheating of by the organisers of the PWL, led by Sunil Yash Kalra, the CEO of ProSportify, the team owners of Mumbai Maharathi have decided to withdraw from the 3rd edition of the PWL with immediate effect," the Maharathi team said in a statement on Wedneday.

"While the team management has taken in its stride several instances of mismanagement and operational glitches by the league organisers, they reacted strongly to the incident that occurred at the toss between Mumbai Maharathi and their opponents," the release added.

The incident happened during the game between Maharathi and Veer Marathas.

"After Sakshi Malik won the toss, she oped to block the wrestler in the 74 kg category, but was prevented to do so by the organisers in a clear violation of the rules. Sakshi then had no option but to block a wrestler in another weight category and the 74 kg category proved vital in the final outcome of the match, with Mumbai Maharathi losing the tie 3-4 to Veer Marathas," the statement further elaborated.

According to the PWL rules, one weight category cannot be blocked for consecutive matches and for a total of two out of the five league matches.
