The concluding encounter of league-stage in Pro Kabaddi 2019 sees the hosts UP Yoddha take on defending champions Bengaluru Bulls in the final day of Greater Noida leg at Shaheed Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex.
Both UP Yoddha and Bengaluru Bulls have qualified into the playoffs as they look to position themselves against the teams they have better records in the upcoming eliminators.
Shrikant Jadhav has 131 raid points in 20 outings for UP Yoddha. He has led a consistent raiding line-up with decent contributions from Rishank Devadiga, Surender Gill, and Monu Goyat. UP Yoddha could test their bench strength as well considering, they are just a game away from the playoffs.
'Hi-Flyer' Pawan Sehrawat has 295 raid points in 21 matches for Bengaluru Bulls' offence. He has had a great run as the stand-in skipper of the team without Rohit Kumar. Sumit Singh and Banty would highly get expected to show their calibre tonight to be the third raider of the side ahead of the playoffs.
Both Sumit and Nitesh Kumar have 136 combined tackle points as the most dominant corner duo of this edition. Sumit and Nitesh Kumar have 70 and 66 tackle points to their names. Ashu Singh and Amit Narwal will once again be the dependable covers of the team tonight.
Mahender Singh has 51 tackle points as the leading tackle points scorer from Bengaluru Bulls. Amit Sheoran and Saurabh Nandal would yet again be the corners of the team while Ankit/Mohit Sehrawat could get considered at the right cover for today's encounter.
Will UP Yoddha end their home leg on a high note? Or will Bengaluru Bulls gain a victory in the final league stage match?
