Bengal Warriors - Team News
Bengal were in control for most part of the match, but a flurry of super tackles from Gujarat almost wrested the lead from them, and they need to improve their raiding in those situations. Prapanjan was at his best, picking up 8 raid points and got tackled just once while Maninder had 5 raid points to his name while Nabibakhsh had 3.
In defense, Nabibakhsh put in 2 important tackles, while Rinku Narwal was targeted by most of the Gujarat raiders, though he came back strong with 2 crucial tackles in the second half. Baldev and the 2 covers looked poor and Bengal need to cope up with not having veteran Jeeva Kumar in the side.
Predicted Starting 7: Maninder Singh (C), K.Prapanjan, Mohammad Nabibakhsh, Vijin Thangadurai, Rinku Narwal, Baldev Singh and Viraj Vishnu Langde.

Ravinder Pahal in the right corner did well and Vishal Mane too was good to an extent. Skipper Joginder in the left has to sharpen up a bit while Iranian left cover Saied Ghaffari should do well to hold on to his spot in the side.
Predicted Starting 7: Joginder Singh Narwal (C), Ravinder Pahal, Vishal Mane, Naveen Kumar, Vijay Malik, Chandran Ranjit, and Saeid Ghaffari.
