In a remarkable turn of events, Team SouL’s journey in the Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) Masters Series (BGMS) Season 2 has captured the spirit of true sportsmanship. Despite facing setbacks in the form of illness, the team’s in-game leader (IGL), Sahil “Omega” Jakhar, stood tall and battled through high fever to compete in a crucial match that could significantly impact their path to victory.
In the afternoon of League Week 2 Day 3, an unforeseen obstacle emerged for Team SouL. The team’s manager, Sidhant “Sid” Joshi, took to social media to reveal that two of their players, the IGL Omega and assaulter Harsh “Goblin” Paudwal, had fallen ill and were running a high fever of 103°F. With the upcoming matches being of paramount importance, this news cast a shadow of uncertainty over the team’s performance. Sid’s initial announcement expressed the team’s determination to prioritize their players’ health, even hinting at the possibility of competing shorthanded if the need arose.

Despite his illness, Omega’s commitment to the team’s success shone brightly as he insisted on competing in the upcoming matches.
