Bengal Warriors began their crusade of this season trouncing UP Yodha and after 4 matches they find themselves at the 5thspot in the points table with 11 points. They have lost back to back matches as they get ready to take on the effervescent Patna Pirates.
Patna have earned 11 points in their 3 matches, a stock on the rise on the kabaddi sensex. They have the highest team tackle percentage of the season- 45.59 %. Their corner combinations are working well with Mohammedreza in the left corner and Sajin in the right corner.
Maninder is the only player for the Warriors who has been single-handedly performing. He is huge and difficult to tackle. But can his team mates reboot and start playing like defending champions. Nabibaksh has been predictable, defence is busy donating points of unsuccessful advanced tackles.
Low on confidence, the Warriors my just have to abandon ship as the Patna Pirates batten down the hatches.
Looks like the Pirates have found their “Jack Sparrow” in the form of Sachin Tanwar. Add to that some spicy raids by Prashath Rai and some garnishing by the corner combinations. This is a dream come true for the Pirates. As the opposition concentrates on tackling Monu Goyat, Sachin and Prashanth wreck havoc.
Their record looks ominous-
39 tackle points with 6 Super tackles in 3 matches.
On an average they have executed 11 successful team tackles per match.
42 raid points between Sachin and Prashanth in 3 matches.
21 tackle points between Mohemmedreza and Sajin.
They won a close first match against the Steelers, got conned by a point against the Yodha's but came back in style beating the Puneri Paltan. They look to be a complete team well prepared for any opposition. Raider Sachin Tanwar has emerged as the demolition man as he conducts dangerous raids while keeping the opposition guessing and inducing errors from their defence. They only need to be careful about their own defence not making unforced errors and jump into advanced tackles. They learn this lesson against the UP Yodha.
But they look very strong as they take on Bengal Warriors.
Defending Champions Bengal warriors have always shown the tendency to choke in big match situations. They made it to the play offs for 2 consecutive seasons few years back but failed to nail the big matches, though they won the title last time around.
Dabang Delhi hammered them in the last match earning over 50 points as the Bengal Warrior defence kept on making silly mistakes. Warriors were all out twice within 10 minutes of the first half, such was the massacre.
Captain Maninder got 16 raid points along with 9 from Sukesh, but the defence conceded 34 points collectively to Naveen Express and all rounder Vijay. It has been a complete anti thesis for the Warriors in the last couple of games. Maninder is their “Oasis in the desert”
Areas of Concern-
Highest team points conceded in the season.
Though they have inflicted 6 all outs, they have also concede the same to the opposition.
Lowest average team-tackle points of the season.
A better and stronger defence is the only way to redeem themselves in this season.
Patna Pirates enter into this match with all their guns blazing. Trio of good raiders- Monu, Sachin, Prashanth, efficient corners and a good defensive approach. They have the upper hand in this match as Sachin and Prashanth can exploit the fragile Warriors defense. They have the best average team tackle rate in the tournament with 33 successful tackles. They can cook the Warriors on the mat.
Bengal Warriors need to counter attack in style. Maninder and Sukesh earn well, but they spend too much in their defence. They need to put some budget constrains while tackling the opposition raiders. This is the only way they can recharge themselves. Maninder is huge, strong and impossible to stop. If the Warriors play like “Defending Champions” only then they stand a chance against the Pirates.
