Jaipur Pink Panthers vs Bengal Warriors Match Prediction: Who will win today's Pro Kabaddi 2017 match?
October's first Super Sunday in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 5 will feature the Jaipur Pink Panthers clashing against the Bengal Warriors as a part of the Inter-Zone Challenge Week at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers registered a narrow one-point win over the Tamil Thalaivas last night. The Bengal Warriors are coming into this match on the back of a loss against the same opponent, Tamil Thalaivas.
The Panthers were playing last night without the services of their main man Jasvir Singh who was out possibly due to a slight niggle and is not expected to play today as well. In his absence, however, young guns like Pawan Kumar and Nitin Rawal and Tushar Patil have handled the attacking responsibility well to power their team across to the finish line on many occasions.
Selvamani has made a comeback to the side post the long injury lay-off but is yet to showcase his mettle. Manjeet Chhillar is the standout force in the defence with his key holds and blocks which will be targeted towards Maninder and Deepak Narwal in tonight's fixture.Siddharth Dahiya and Sunil will be the other two defenders who will ensure that the Bengal attack is kept at bay.
On the other hand, the Bengal Warriors will be on the hunt for a win after they lost their last match by a slender margin of just one point. The raid department will be spearheaded by the very talented Maninder Singh who has been in some stellar form and finished as one of the best raiders in the Delhi leg.
He will be supported by the likes of Deepak Narwal and Korean import Jang Kun Lee and together, the trio will aim to penetrate through the Jaipur defence. Their own defence will be marshalled by skipper, Surjeet in the cover position who has been lethal with his body blocks.He will be supported by Ran Singh in the corner position on the mat and Srikanth Tewathia on the other end.
All-rounder Vinod Kumar should be included in the scheme of things given his ability to perform on either shore thus bringing about balance to the side.
