After Telugu Titans’ amazing win over Bengaluru Bulls, we are almost ready here with the East-West derby. Will Puneri Paltan get a win to go top of the Pro Kabaddi table or will Bengal Warriors live to fight another day in this tournament, which has seen them play some ordinary kabaddi. We will find out soon!!!
Welcome back friends! In the second match of the double header today we are going to see Puneri Paltan face off Bengal Warriors. The two teams have had contrasting fortunes in the tournament and will be under pressure going in to the match, albeit for different reasons. Puneri Paltan are eyeing the top of the table while Bengal Warriors will do anything to get themselves away from the eighth position where they seem stuck at the moment.
Nothing has gone right for Bengal Warriors till now in the tournament and it reflects in the team’s performance as they have won just a single game and were comprehensively defeated in the six games. Puneri Paltan have, on the other hand, have managed to cling on to a position in the top 4 ever since the beginning of the 4th season, even though they haven’t been at their best.
The Warriors have almost no hopes left to make it to the semis, not with this form for sure. But at the end of hope lie miracles and Bengal Warriors have to approach the second half of the 4th season as the only half that matters. They have to hit a streak, and have to stretch it as long as possible.
They do have names who can stun the best of oppositions on their day, but at the end of the day, it is a team game and Nilesh Shinde will have to inspire the Warriors as a team. Bengal will also take heart from the fact that Puneri Paltan is one team that they have traditionally performed well against. The results are 5-3 in Pune’s favour in the head to head.
Puneri Paltan will be backing themselves to pull off consecutive wins against the team that they easily defeated just a few days ago in Patna. But one department team where the team has scored low is consistency. They haven’t been able to keep up the intensity too long in the tournament and have remained a little unpredictable with their game. They drew with Dabang Delhi but then came back strongly to register an impressive win over a strong outfit like Dabang Delhi.
Paltans will look to continue their good run in this season. Their defenders have been the hero for them so far. Tonight, their raiders Deepak Hooda and Ajay Thakur will take on the duo of Nilesh Shinde and Amit Chillar. Both should try to remove the corners early and build some pressure on the covers.
Star raider Nitin Madane is the only hope for them tonight as they are up against the strongest defense of PKL 4. Tonight, Nitin will be surrounded by the left cover Manjeet Chillar and the right corner Ravinder Pahal. He should try to jump over the chains but he'll need support from the other raiders, Jang Kun Lee and Monu Goyat.
