The display from both teams has been a defensive one until now. They are relying more on defence than attack to gain a stronghold on the match. Somehow I feel that Jan Kung Lee is going to be the difference between the two teams here. Second half just moments away- Stay tuned

Lots of lights, cameras and some breathtaking action coming up!!!!!! Let’s go
The teams are here and we are almost set to go. National anthem will be sung shortly!!
No matter how much enthusiasm anyone has, they will always be second to Amitabh Bachchan.
Vishal Mane is looking quite stylish with his haircut and is raring to go. Mohit Chhillar, on the other hand, looks quite nervous and knows that the pressure will be on him.
However, all eyes will be on Bengaluru Bulls and their blue-eyed boy Mohit Chhillar, who was the most expensive buy in the auction held a couple of months back. However, they will still be looking to get maximum juice out of Rohit Kumar, who played for Patna Pirates last season and amassed 100 raid points.
Bengal Warriors have excellent balance in the squad with raiders like Jang Kun Lee, Simon Kibura and Surjeet Narwal while their defense includes Nilesh Shinde, Amit Singh Chhillar and Ravi Kumar.
Women‘s kabaddi is bound to generate a lot of interest and it is imperative that they be given a platform similar to men, who have been catapulted into this amazing platform where they have become national heroes.
After Kapil Sharma yesterday, it will be legendary singer Hariharan, who will sing the national anthem to give proceedings a superb start.
Here is a glimpse of the star studded attendance of the first day of Pro Kabaddi Season 4 2016.
Hello and welcome to the second matchday of Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 as Bengaluru Bulls begin their campaign against the Bengal Warriors at the DOME@NSCL SVP Stadium in the capital of Maharashtra. We are set for another double header after yesterday’s matches, which saw wins for Puneri Paltan and U Mumba over Telugu Titans and Jaipur Pink Panthers, respectively.
Bengaluru Bulls, who had a woeful Pro Kabaddi 3, were exceptionally active in the auction and landed the most expensive buy, Mohit Chhillar, for a colossal Rs. 53 lakh. Not only things, they have also added the likes of Rohit Kumar, Surender Nada, Rohit Baliyan, Rahul Kumar and Manoj Kumar.
Coached by the experienced Randhir Singh, Bengaluru Bulls will be looking to get off to a solid start against a Bengal Warriors side, which will be looking to improve its record in the previous season, wherein they finished fourth with nine wins and five matches.
Bengal Warriors, captained by Nilesh Shinde, have bought in solid players in the form of Vishale Mane, Surjeet Narwal, Ravi Kumar and Simon Kibura. Along with this, they have the power of South Korean raider, who amassed has amassed 182 raid points in his 40 matches in Pro Kabaddi so far. Shinde, their captain, will be looking to lead them from the front and would like to replicate for Bengal Warriors what Manjeet Chhillar did for Puneri Paltan in their win over Telugu Titans on the first day of Pro Kabaddi 4.
Teams are still trying to find their combinations in the tournament and units with a large number of players, who have been together previously, will certainly help. We saw yesterday how U Mumba struggled during the game but in the end got over the line due to the amazing combination of Rakesh Kumar and Rishank Devadiga.
Furthermore, losing the first match migh not be such a bad thing for teams as they are still in the process of finding the right combination. This is a long tournament and teams will need to peak at the right time in order to win the title. This is one reason why this tournament has all the makings of a cracker and it will be interesting to see if in the long run the usual suspects return.
Hosting the first leg in Mumbai, which happened due to some logistical issues, has turned out to be a great platform for Pro Kabaddi Season 4 as the first day saw big stars descend on the mat to promote the game. Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Virat Kohli and Amitabh Bachchan were all present for the first day and we should expect even more people today.
Pune showed a lot of guts and nerve to win a game that was supposed to be played at their home ground but changed to their immediate state rivals U Mumba, whom they take on in the second game tonight.
