The Bengal Warriors got caught in the Pink Panther web on Friday as they had to settle for a TIE in a low scoring match. Captain Maninder Singh was strangled as he could score just 4 points while raiders Srikant Jadhav and Nitin Kumar scored handsomely between them. After winning the first match, Bengal were sucked into a defensive trap as they could not score freely against Jaipur. They could not score quickly in the second half and had to settle for a TIE.
The Tamil Thalaiva had a dream start to this season as they beat Dabang Delhi in their first bout. Young radiers Narender Kandola scored 8 points while veteran Ajinkya Pawar hammered Dabang with 21 raid points. The Thalaiva defense was precise as they earned 10 tackle points in the match.
With a tight defense and exuberant raiding, Tamil Thalaiva may just take the Warriors for a ride. The Bengal Warriors will have to work overtime against the Thalaiva as the team which displays agility and precision will win the match.
The Bengal Warriors started the season with an emphatic win over the Bengaluru Bulls. But their next encounter against the Jaipur Pink Panthers turned out to be a setback. They were forced to TIE the match as Jaipur completely isolated captain Maninder who could score just 4 points in the match.
The Warriors will be forced to rethink their strategy as this was a match they could have won. It is important to note that Bengal were aggressive in the first 10 minutes against the Pink Panthers. They got the lead but could not inflict an all-out. Jaipur recovered and took the lead even when they had just 3 players on the mat. The Pink Panthers succeeded in regulating Maninder Singh by going deep into the playing field and avoiding any contact with the Bengal captain.
But the Warriors quickly fell back on Srikant Jadhav and young raider Nitin Kumar which worked for them. Their defense was able to neutralize Arjun Deshwal which reduced their opponents scoring too. Defenders Darpan, Vaibhav Garje and left corner Aman were impressive as they adapted to the situation.
Captain Maninder has been the most successful player for the Bengal Warriors and he may have to follow the footsteps of Pardeep Narwal by playing sidekick to Srikant Jadhav and Nitin Kumar. Bengal Warriors have depth in their defense which will crucial against the effervescent Tamil Thalaiva.
Bengal have dominated the Thalaiva over the years. They have won 9 out of their 12 encounters. But the Warriors could not beat Tamil Thalaiva even once last year and this indicates that the Warriors may have a tough time on the mat.
A young and resurgent Tamil Thalaiva started the season with a magnificent win over former champions Dabang Delhi. Veteran Ajinkya Pawar scored a double Super 10, looting 21 points in the match. He was ably supported by Narender Kandola. Both raiders complemented each other shaping the fortunes of their team.
The Thalaiva has learnt to survive without big names. They have combined together as a team and the results have been impressive. They finished 5th last year losing to UP Yodha in the eliminator. Tamil Thalaiva looks very dangerous as they have a tight defense.
Defenders Mohit, Abhinesh, Sahil Gulia, left corner Himanshu and captain Sagar form an impregnable wall. Sagar was one of the best defenders of season 9. He executed 45 successful tackles while partner Sahil Gulia executed 53 successful tackles in 23 matches.
Young raider Narender Kandola earned 243 points last year, thus catapulting him among the best raider in the league. He and Ajinkya Pawar form a deadly raiding duo which allows the Thalaiva to play an extra defender or an all-rounder. This formula worked for the Tamil Thalaiva in their first match against Dabang Delhi.
They do not have a great record against the Bengal Warriors. But over the years, the Tamil Thalaiva has emerged stronger. That is the reason, they were able to beat the Warriors once and forced a TIE in another game last year. The Thalaiva is a dangerous unit which can exploit a weak defense. They displayed a team raid success rate of 52.5% in their first match with a strike rate of 67%. They executed a Super tackle too as they bundled out Dabang Delhi twice in the match.
Tamil Thalaiva will unleash their young raiders to loot the Bengal Warriors. It will be epic battle between their defense and Bengal captain Maninder Singh.
Welcome to an epic battle of season 10 as the Bengal Warriors take on the Tamil Thalaiva.
Captain Maninder Singh will be the key to their success. Fortunately Bengal have Srikant Jadhav and Nitin Kumar. The trio of Bengal raiders will earn more than 20 points. Left corner Aditya will combine with right cover Vaibhav Garje to neutralize one of the Thalaiva raiders. But the Bengal defense may lose their intensity in the second half.
Tamil Thalaiva will lead by half-time with Narender Kandola and Ajinkya Pawar. Both will score a Super 10. Defenders Sagar and Himanshu will be particularly deadly against Maninder Singh. Left corner Sahil Gulia will target Srikant Jadhav. The Thalaiva will vary the pace through the match but they will intensify their attack post half-time. This will be a very entertaining match which will also test the tactical capacity of the Bengal Warriors.
Tamil Thalaiva will win.
