Nilesh Shinde’s Bengal Warriors were outclassed by the defending champions Patna Pirates in yesterday’s encounter. The experienced Bengal defence looked shaky as the trio of Vishal Mane, Girish Ernak and Nilesh Shinde was tormented by the opposition raiders. Still, the fans are waiting to see the best of Vishal Mane in new colours. The in-form Deepak Niwas Hudda along with Sonu Narwal proves to be a real test for the struggling Bengal defence.
The attack looks even more vulnerable in the absence of the star raider Jan Kun Lee. Nitin Madane and Monu Goyat surrendered in the hands of Dharmaraj Cheralathan against the Patna Pirates. The young raiders were super tackled by the Patna defence on more than three occasions.
Whenever Madane stays off the mat, the Bengal Warriors suffers an all-out instantly. The struggling attackers will face a stern test against the best all rounder of Pro Kabaddi, Manjeet Chhillar.
Ajay Thakur’s dip in form is the huge setback for the Puneri Paltans heading into today’s battle. The star raider who single-handedly thrashed the three-time finalist U Mumba in the opening week is looking to get back to his old shape against the Warriors. Nitin Tomar will go against his old team in today’s battle.
The former Delhi captain Ravindra Pahal is back to his very best on the right corner of the defence with 19 successful tackle points. The strong defence should come good against the warriors, otherwise, an upset is on the cards
