Right from July till the end of October, a long way from where each team began their journey. A new campaign with four new added teams, but it was the Patna Pirates that had their eyes set on another shot at the title. Gujarat Fortunegiants defeated Patna Pirates in their last two encounters which made the debutants the favourites to win Season 5. But who knew that the Fortunegiants would sink under pressure in the finals against the double defending, now three-time defending champions of the Pro Kabaddi League 2017. A file image of Gujarat Fortunegiant's Fazel Atrachali and Patan Pirates' Pardeep Narwal meet for the toss of the final.
