Defending champions Bengaluru Bulls will be keen on climbing to the top spot on the points table as they seek a win when they face off against the Puneri Paltan in the 51st fixture of Pro Kabaddi 2019 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai.
The Puneri Paltan, on the other hand, have endured a poor start to the season and have just two wins from eight matches, courtesy of which they are currently placed at the bottom of the points table.
The Surjeet Singh-led side have lost their last two encounters and desperately need a win from this encounter to remain in contention for a spot in the knockout stages. Young Pankaj Mohite has 38 raid points from six matches and has led the raiding unit, while Nitin Tomar has just 15 raid points from three matches and will need to lift his game.
One of the key battles from this game will be the contest between Bengaluru Bulls' ace raider Pawan Sehrawat and Pune's defensive unit. Sehrawat has dominated the opposition defenders all through the season with 98 raid points from eight matches and his proficiency on the day will be key for the Bulls.
