Today's PKL Match Prediction
Bengaluru Bulls are looking like a well-oiled machine at the moment. With Pawan Sehrawat and Chandran Ranjit in form, their attack is sorted. Meanwhile, the defenders are also doing their job efficiently.
At the same time, the problem is only piling up for Anup Kumar and he has a ton of issues to address. While Nitin Tomar's injury did not help the team's cause, Rahul Chaudhari's form has pushed the team further into a slump. Vishal Bhardwaj showed glimpses of his defensive brilliance in the last game, but the other defenders will have to step in and stop making naive mistakes.
Prediction: Bengaluru Bulls are likely to win this fixture.
