This season the matches have been more unpredictable and close. The Bulls started off on a lazy note but have come back in style with Hi flyer Pawan Sehrawat scoring points by the dozen. He has 73 raid points from 60 successful raids. The Bulls have faltered every time the opposition has got the better of Pawan. But Pawan seems to have found his mojo. They made merry against the hapless Puneri Paltan and scored at will. The best part for the Bulls is that the ever-reliable Chandran Ranjith has been consistent, so has the defence.

Jaipur should not pose a huge problem for the Bulls.

Jaipur Pink Panthers haven’t played badly, it is just that they have not groomed themselves for winning. As a team, they have some good numbers but the result may not prove it.

Currently, in the 9th position after 5 matches, they have 12 points to their name and a couple of victories to boast about. The Bulls will pose a serious challenge for them and it will be interesting to see how they perform. 

It will be as if an underprepared student going for his Mathematics exam, hence the odds with the betting apps in India are in favour of the Bulls.

Bengaluru Bulls Preview

Inconsistencies of the last season still prevail for the Bulls, though they seem to have found some solutions for a long list of problems. Hi-Flyer Pawan is back in form. This is a quick turn-around for a youngster who contemplated leaving the game after a dismal performance in season 5, only to come back as the most valuable player of season 6 and the top raider of season 7. 

The Bulls have found their mojo and all of the team members are now contributing.

Pawan, Chandran Ranjit, Bharat have collectively earned 127 raid points in 6 games.

Highest successful team tackles- 59

6 Super tackles, 4 Super raids.

The only issue is that they have conceded the second highest team points this season- 202.

In the last match, left corner Aman, defender Sourabh Nandal and Mohit Sehrawat were in top notch form. The raiding trio of Pawan, Chandran and Bharat are cruising past the opposition.

They just need to be careful of brain fag moments which earlier resulted in a loss and then a tie.

Jaipur Pink Panthers should not pose a lot of danger to the Bulls who would like to win the match and strengthen their top position. But Kabaddi is a funny game and this season has been funnier.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

Champions of the first season never did justice to the talent pool they possess. They came close to beating the defending champions Bengal Warriors and the match was decided on the last raid where Arjun Deshwal was caught in a Super Tackle. It looked as if the Pink Panthers would either win or tie the game but the match slipped out of their hands like sand through fingers. 

They need to take inspiration from the fact that if they can beat a team like UP Yodha with Pardeep Narwal in its wings, they can take on the Bulls too. They need to play a fearless a brand of kabaddi.

Arjun Deshwal has been a revelation for them. 68 raid points from 54 successful raids. He has the highest number of Super 10’s this season. 

He has been in phenomenal form and the needs the support of other raiders to help his team win. Captain Deepak Niwas Hooda, Naveen and all rounder Nitin Rawal need to step up so that they take the pressure off Arjun.

They have earned 104 raid points while conceding 165 points in 5 matches. They have to reduce this expense so that they can maintain a better balance sheet.

4 all outs inflicted while conceding 6 in 5 matches.

They are a good unit, but they need to improve their efficiency. This will be a great opportunity for them to make a big kill and recharge themselves for the rest of the season.

This looks like a one sided affair on paper, but Bengaluru Bulls are known for their inconsistencies. Though they are table toppers, if they have a bad day, the Pink Panthers will take this as a god sent gift. Pawan looks in fantastic form, hence stopping him will be a herculean task for the Pink Panther defence. Pink Panthers can actually play like the Fortune Giants, play slow and keep this a low scoring affair.

This will increase their chances of losing by a big margin or even securing a tie.

Arjun Deshwal will be the key for the Pink Panthers.

All rounder Shaul Kumar and Nitin Rawal will have to punch above their weight and create chances for their team.

Bulls will look at a quick win, while the Pink Panthers will pray for their off day.

Bengaluru Bulls will win this game.
