Today's PKL Match Prediction
Everything has been working for the Bengaluru Bulls so far. Apart from Pawan Sehrawat, Chandran Ranjit and Bharat are also scoring points in the attack.
Everyone, including Mahender Singh, Aman and Saurabh Nandal, are doing their job efficiently in defense. If the Bulls keep producing team efforts like this, it would be difficult to stop them.
Meanwhile, Gujarat Giants are having their fair share of problems. In the last match, their main raider Rakesh Narwal could not even open their account.
Moreover, skipper Sumit is still looking lost in the defense, which could be fatal against a team like Bengaluru Bulls.
Prediction: Bengaluru Bulls are expected to win this contest.
