Good evening friends and welcome to the live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 match between Bengal Warriors and Telugu Titans from the capital of West Bengal. We have only one game tonight but there is more action after this match from the Women’s Kabaddi Challenge.
Tonight’s game is a crucial one for both teams, albeit with contrasting motives. While Bengal Warriors will be looking for a victory to just survive in the tournament, Telugu Titans would want to get another win under their belt to continue their charge towards that semi-final spot. Telugu Titans are in superb form and it will take a monumental performance from Bengal Warriors to stop them.
Bengal Warriors have been significantly better at home as compared to their performance in the rest of the tournament but they come into this match on the back of the defeat at the hands of Patna Pirates, who have been the best team in Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 by a country mile. The challenge posed by Telugu Titans to Bengal Warriors, especially in attack, is going to be no less than Patna Pirates.
Nilesh Shinde, Girish Ernak and Vishal Mane will need to be on fire tonight to stop the might of Rahul Chaudhari, who recently became the first player in Pro Kabaddi history to amass 400 raid points, which is phenomenal to say the least. Not only this, Jang Kun Lee will need to get the better of the likes of Sandeep Narwal and Sandeep Dhull, who have been performing really well.
Telugu Titans, on the other hand, need to just keep a positive frame of mind and look for their fifth win on the trot. In terms of form, Telugu Titans, at present, are the best team in the tournament and they are looking like dark horses as far as the Pro Kabaddi title is concerned. Rahul Chaudhari is looking in great shape and so is Sandeep Narwal, who has been the true leader for the team from Hyderabad.
Nilesh Salunke has been great for Telugu Titans, delivering in do or die raids more often that not. Rahul Chaudhari will need to be wary of the Nilesh Shinde and Sandeep Narwal will need to do a lot to stop Jang Kun Lee, who is looking in great shape since the tournament shifted to Kolkata.
