Bengal Warriors Preview

One of the best teams of the season, former champions Bengal take on the Puneri Paltan in their last home game of the season. The Warriors are in a desperate situation as they are placed 7th in the points table. Haryana Steelers are ahead of them as just 1 spot remains in the next round. The pressure of Bengal is much higher as they have just 2 more league matches while Haryana has 4. This puts them at a slight disadvantage. Hence the Bengal Warriors have to win their remaining 2 matches with very huge margins. Unfortunately they bump into the Puneri Paltan. Bengal lost to the Paltan earlier in the season. It was a knock-out performance by Pune as they defeated Bengal by 30 points. Will the Warriors be able to overcome such a thrashing?

But Bengal won their last match against U Mumba. It was an ideal outing for their raiders as the trio of Maninder Singh, Nitin Kumar and Vishwas scored 26 raid points between them. Defenders Vaibhav Garje and Harsh Lad were at their best as they scored 4 tackle points each. Bengal inflicted 2 all-outs on U Mumba who were without their lead raider Guman Singh. But the victory has come a bit late for the Warriors as time is running out for them.

Right corner Shubham Shinde has been deadly with 59 successful tackles in 20 matches. They have a success rate of 41% in team raids courtesy Maninder Singh. Along with the captain raiders Srikant Jadhav, Vishwas and Nitin Kumar have surprised everyone with their skills. Nitin scored 14 points against the Patna Pirates in his first outing of the season as Bengal Warriors scored 60 points. Except for the Tied match against the Jaipur Pink Panthers, the Bengal Warriors have scored heavily against all opponents. But more often than not, the Warriors have lost intensity in crucial matches.  Apart from Shubham Shinde, defenders Darpan, S Aditya and right cover Vaibhav Garje have all contributed. 

The Bengal Warriors have not beaten the Paltan since season 8. They lost to the Puneri Paltan twice last year. This will be one of the most entertaining encounters of the season as this will be a face-off between the Puneri raiders and Bengal defender Shubham Shinde apart from a clash between Mighty Maninder and Puneri all-rounder Mohammedreza.

Puneri Paltan Preview

The Paltan has already qualified for the next round as they aim to win the title after coming close last season. They have been one of the most consistent sides of season 10. Barring a few matches which ended as a TIE, the Paltan has not bowed before any opponent. Their most important weapon has been teamwork and fitness of all players. Overall the Paltan has one of the most balanced squads among all teams. Raiders Aslam Inamdar, Mohit Goyat and Pankaj Mohite are supported by Akash Shinde and R Nitin. Defenders Abhinesh, Sanket Sawant and Gaurav Khatri are the best in the business. Left corner Mohammedreza has added sting to their already strong defense. 

Puneri Paltan has already qualified for the next round. They have the least number of losses in the season. They have the best team tackle success rate in the tournament which is about 57%. Their success rate in team raids is about 39%. None of their raiders are in the top 10, yet the trio of Aslam, Mohit Goyat and Pankaj Mohite has been lethal. 

They have inflicted 37 all-outs in the season as well as earned 281 team tackle points which is the highest by any team.

Puneri Paltan made quick work of the Tamil Thalaiva in the last match. They smashed the men in yellow by a margin of 27 points. The Paltan has the best score difference in the points table. Pankaj Mohite earned 12 points while the Puneri defense was hostile. Mohammedreza scored 8 tackle points while Gaurav Khatri, Abhinesh and Sanket Sawant hunted 9 tackle points together. With 2 more games post this encounter, the Puneri Paltan should not have any issues as they enter the play-offs. The Paltan just needs to be careful about the law of averages catching up with them. Pune has to be careful that they do not have a bad day at the office in the upcoming weeks else they may end up with a broken heart just like the finals of season 9. Puneri Paltan has to control the “Big show” Maninder Singh. The Paltan has won 10 out of their 19 encounters and they beat the Warriors twice last year. Puneri boys need to win in Kolkata to give their fans some reason to cheer.

Welcome to the Do-or-Die encounter for the Bengal Warriors on their home turf as they struggle to win matches required for the qualification. The Warriors got a boost as they defeated U Mumba in their last match. They need to keep up the pressure as they take on the mighty Paltan. Captain Maninder will score quickly in the first half but the support raiders may not be able to earn as they did against Tamil Thalaiva. Defenders Harsh Lad and Vaibhav Garje will hunt precisely but they may falter in the second half.

The Puneri Paltan will unleash their raiding trio. Aslam may have some trouble getting past the Bengal defense but Mohit Goyat will score a Super 10. Teamwork will be the key as defenders Mohammedreza and Gaurav Khatri will tone down the Bengal raid earnings. Defender Abhinesh will be ruthless in the second half which may lead to an all-out at a very crucial moment in the match. This will be a tough outing for the Bengal Warriors in front of their fans.

Puneri Paltan will win.
