Bengaluru Bulls were lucky to get away with a tie in their first encounter of the new year in the southern derby against Telegu Titans. They were made to work hard by the Titans who looked set to gulp the match. Surprisingly Super star Pawan Sehrawat was rendered to the bench for more than 25 minutes of play and this is the formula for the Paltan.
They have been on a disastrous run in this season and they will just hope that the new year brings them some luck. Rahul Chaudhary is not firing, the defence is not in resonance, supporting raiders are over burdened. No wonder they are last in the points table with 5 points in 4 matches with a score difference of 32 points.
But this is a long league where it doesn't take too much to turn the tide. Puneri Paltan has to play within their limitations and look for a loss less than 7 points or tie the match.
They need to give CPR to their defensc in order to survive.
You can't plan a lot when you are last in the points table, it's a sad note on which Puneri Paltan will be entering the arena in 2022. With a disappointing run in the season, its time for redemption for the Paltan. The basic issue is not playing together as a team.
The Paltan has Star raider Rahul Chaudhary for inspiration, young raiders like Pankaj Mohite and Aslam Inamdar showing the spark, Defenders Abhinesh, Sombir and of course captain Vishal Bharadwaj.
But most of their components have misfired and that has broken down their vehicle this season. But nothing is lost yet. We have seen on numerous occasions, teams stranded at the bottom of the table make Daring come backs. Puneri Paltan needs to set the course on fire with something innovative and unconventional.
Areas of concern-
9 all outs conceded.
148 points conceded in 4 matches.
Average team tackle points, me 9.5 per match.
They need to rise to the occasion. Vishal Bharadwaj and Rahul Chaudhary need to work together to motivate the team to rise from the ashes.
Bulls are now in the second spot after 5 games with 18 points. Things look good for them after a disastrous start to the season. Pawan Sehrawat is in great form with 56 point from 46 successful raids. Chanran Ranjith has given him supporting fire power with 29 raid points.
Coach Randhir Singh will have a lot to repair work at hand as far as the defence combinations are concerned. Pawan Sehrawat was handled pretty well by the opposition in their last encounter where the Bulls had to settle for a tie against the Titans.
Though Puneri Paltan is not in great form, Pawan needs to be careful if the opposition gets the better of him.
The biggest worry for the Bulls is their defence. Only 3 Super Raids, 6 all outs inflicted but 6 all outs conceded too. Though their defence looked good against the Titans, earning tackle points is high priority. Sourabh Nandal and Mahendra earned 8 tackle points against the Titans.
Areas of Concern:
148 points conceded till now.
Pawan Sehrawat could not get a Super 10 in the last match.
The only ray of hope is both Pawan and Chandran Ranjith scored Super 10’s
Kabaddi is one of the most unpredictable games, a game of glorious uncertainties. We got the taste of these virtues on the first day of the year when we had 2 tied games. Can we predict a tie in this too???? Too much to ask for.
Puneri Paltan can only dream of a miracle which would get them back in form and beat the Bulls. Pawan Sehrawat was kept quite in the last match, but he is more than a handful for inefficient defense. Chandran Ranjith looks in great form, the Bulls are improving every day in their defence.
This looks like an easy win for the Bulls. But beware, Rahul Chardhary and Aslam Inamdar of the Paltan can be party poopers!!!!
Bulls will beat the Puneri Paltan
