Former champions Bengal Warriors were looted by the Puneri Paltan as they got thrashed by a margin of 30 points in their last game. Such was the rioting on the mat that the Warriors could earn just 19 points in the entire match. It was an unexpected drop in form for the former champions as every move looked out of syllabus for them.

Meanwhile the UP Yodha has been slowly but steadily improving on their performance. They are currently placed 6th in the points table after playing 4 matches. The Yodha lost a close match to the Bengaluru Bulls. But overall, UP has got the legendary Pardeep Narwal and Surinder Gills. The 2 matches that they have lost have been very close which could have gone either ways. Hence they will be extremely confident as they take on the Bengal Warriors in their next match.

This will be one of the most difficult matches for the Warriors as it be their biggest challenge to come back from the thrashing they got in their last game. It is like getting up for a fight after being knocked down in a bout.

Bengal Warriors Preview

The mighty Bengal Warriors had a great fall against the Puneri Paltan. The Warriors were thrashed, looted and left high and dry as they lost the match by a margin of 30 points. Haryana Steelers met a similar fate against the UP Yodha earlier in the season. Such was the impact of the Puneri Paltan that the Bengal Warriors could score just 19 points in the entire match. It was just one way traffic. A bigger challenge lies ahead of the Warriors- will they be able to recover from this hammering?

The former champions went in to the mat unbeaten in their 4 matches. They were the only side was had not lost a game in season 10. But they were in for a surprise as the Paltan blew their cover very early in to the match. The Bengal defense crumbled under pressure as it could earn just 3 tackle points in 40 minutes. Neither they could stop the Puneri raiders not their raiders could escape the clutches of Paltan’s Iranian all-rounder Mohammedreza who scored 6 tackle points. The best defender of the season Bengal Warrior’s Shubham Shinde too was out of sorts in this match as he earned a green card. 

This defeat was not just a shocker but it has also disturbed the score difference for the Bengal Warriors in the points table. Fortunately they still are at the top of the points table with 18 points after playing 5 matches. The Warriors have to just forget this match and move ahead with renewed vigor. Captain Maninder Singh will have to inspire his troops as they take on the UP Yodha in a tough match.

One of the major concerns for Bengal is that the Yodha has generally troubled them over the years. Out of their 12 encounters, 4 have been TIED games. Bengal beat UP Yodha way back in season 8. They lost a game to them in season 9 while another league encounter ended as a TIE. Hence under the present circumstances, Bengal Warriors will feel the heat.

The former champions have already forced a TIE in this season against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. After the drubbing received in their last match, it will be prudent for them to play safe rather than suffer another heist at the hands of the UP Yodha.

U.P. Yoddha Preview

The UP Yodha is a stable unit with decent results in season 10. They have won 2 out of their 4 matches and both the losses have been close encounters. Hence they need not worry too much as they take on the Bengal Warriors. 

Pardeep Nawarl and Surinder Gill have earned 75 raid points between them in 4 games while defenders Sumit and Gurdeep have executed 25 successful tackles between them. The UP Yodha thrashed Haryana Steelers in one of their games as they won by a margin of 30 points. The Yodha has a slight issue with its third raider as they have used the services of all-round Vijay Malik who has been decent with his performance.

In their last match against the Bengaluru Bulls, left corner Sumit and defender Nitin Panwar could not open their account which proved to be the difference as the Yodha lost by just 2 points. UP needs to take care of such inconsistencies in the remainder of the tournament. The Yodha clan has executed 47 successful team tackles which is the second best in the league. 

They have a 43% success rate in team raids while they are the leaders with a 52% success rate in team tackles. This proves that their defense has been impregnable in the 4 matches that they have played. This will be their biggest weapon against the Bengal Warriors. They have inflicted 9 all-outs in 4 matches which is the highest among all teams. UP thrives on high scoring which helps them run away with the game. The best part is that their scoring is not solely dependent on their raiders. Hence it becomes very difficult for their opponents to hunt them.

The Yodha has always troubled the Bengal Warriors. In addition, the Yodha must have seen the Puneri Paltan loot the Warriors in their last game. This will help UP plan the fall of the Bengal Warriors. UP has won 4 out of their 12 matches against the former champions while they have forced a TIE in another 4 matches. Hence this should be an easy outing for the UP Yodha and a golden opportunity to earn points and jump up in the points table.

Welcome to the battle between the former champions Bengal Warriors and the UP Yodha. Bengal has to recharge and regroup after the nightmare against the Puneri Paltan. They have to improve on all quarters as Captain Maninder Singh will lead the charge. He will score a Super 10 but the other raiders will struggle against the UP defense. Left corner Shubham Shinde will be effective as he will target UP raider Pardeep. 

But overall the Bengal Warriors may be lethargic in their approach. Pardeep Narwal and Surinder Gill will adapt as per the situation. But both will score quickly in the first half. UP will lead by half-time but they may have to work overtime in the second half. All-rounder Gurdeep and defender Nitish Kumar will trouble the secondary Bengal raiders while left corner Sumit will attack Maninder Singh to keep him off the mat.

This will be a huge battle for the Bengal Warriors as it is a matter of earning back you form as well as your self-respect. But the UP Yodha will dominate the proceedings.
