This will be a TIE.
Tournament: Pro Kabaddi (PKL) | Venue: The Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Centre, Bengaluru.Bet Now
The matches have been more unpredictable and close this season. The Bulls were comfortably placed in the top 3 almost throughout the season. But with the intrusion of the Haryana Steelers in the top3, the Bengaluru Bulls have been pushed to the 4th spot. They are going through an unprecedented dip in form and luck as they have won just 1 game out of their last 5. They have enough points to remain in contention for the play-offs, but this can get a bit risky. On the other hand, the Jaipur Pink Pathers were in top gear mid-season beating the big guys. But they too have lost a bit of steam as they have lost 2 out of their last 5 games. They are placed 6th in the points table after playing 17 games. The Bengaluru Bulls were upset by the Gujarat Fortune Giants in their last game while the Pink Panthers got the better of them. The guardians of the Bulls succumbed to pressure and that led to their loss. The Pink Panthers are riding high on the exploits of raider Arjun Deshwal but they too need to step up the intensity and their consistency. The Bulls beat the Pink Panthers effortlessly last month. This will be a golden opportunity for the Pink Panthers to avenge that defeat and get the Bulls in an uncomfortable zone.
Inconsistencies of the last season still prevail for the Bulls. They have been in the top 3 in the points table throughout the season but it looks like the Bulls are falling sick due to the change in weather. Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat has been consistent while raider Bharat has been impressive. But the guardians of the Bulls have faltered in the last few games. The Bulls have been able to win just 1 game out of their last 5 and this has come as a speed breaker for them. They have lost to U Mumba, Tamil Thalaiva and the Gujarat Fortune Giants while they had to settle for a TIE against Dabang Delhi.
The raiding department is working smoothly but the defence has looked fragile. Unforced errors and unsuccessful advanced tackles have added to their misery. Though the Bulls are one of the best teams of the season, they seem to be running out of breath as well as a bit of luck.
They have inflicted 25 all-outs but conceded 26. This has increased in the last 5 games which has got them under pressure. They have conceded 669 team points in 19 games which is a matter of concern for their coach. They have only 2 more games after this one and their journey can get a bit tricky as the knock-out stage approaches. Pawan Sehrawat has been the golden boy with 244 raid points from 196 successful raids including 14 Super 10’s.
The Bulls beat the Jaipur Pink Panthers by 7 points last time and they will look to repeat that performance. But the change in weather has got the Bulls huffing and puffing in the later part of the season which makes this a mouth watering contest. Kabaddi is a funny game and this season has been funnier.
Champions of the first season never did justice to the talent pool they posses. They took off in a wobbly manner but then settled into a decent flight. They got their act together and started beating the top teams. They are placed 6th in the points table after 17 games and look all set to move into the next stage. They have a few matches left which will allow them some cushion if in case they lose a match. They have won 3 out their last 5 games and have upset some big teams. They beat Dabang Delhi and the Patna Pirates last week and this has given them a lot of confidence. Raider Arjun Deshwal continues to impress while veteran Deepak Hooda has suddenly come alive on the mat. Both earned 33 raid points together against Dabang Delhi and Patna Pirates. This was complemented by a good harvest by the defenders too. That is the reason of the resurgence of the Pink Panthers.
Defeners Sahul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull are in good form along with all-rounder Sachin Narwal.
The Pink Panthers have conducted 282 successful team raids in 17 games along with 149 successful team tackles. They need to improve on these numbers. They have conceded only 556 points in 17 games which is the lowest of the season. This is in contrast to the Bulls who have been the highest spenders of the season.
The Jaipur defence needs to come up with innovative ways to keep Pawan Sehrawat off the mat for a major duration of the game. The Bulls seem vulnerable at this point in the season and this is one of the best opportunities for the Pink Panthers to steal the show.
If the Pink Panthers are able to beat the Bulls, they will jump to the 4th spot in the points table. 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.
Welcome to the contest of the miser and the spendthrift. Benglauru Bulls like to earn heavily and they spend heavily too. They have had a dull week and only 2 more games after this one. Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat and Bharat will look forward to earn heavily but they will have to escape the in-form Jaipur defence. The Bulls will have to be careful with their tackles as unforced errors from here will cause heavy damage. The Pink Panthers will be confident with their performance over the last week. The will be bullish in their approach as they have also beaten big teams like the Pirates and the Dabang’s. This will be a test of character for the Bulls. If they lose this game, there will be an earthquake in the points table.
Bulls will look at a quick win, while the Pink Panthers will pray that the Bulls have a bad day at the office.
This will be a TIE.
