FT: Bengaluru Bulls 45-28 Tamil Thalaivas

A commanding victory for the Bulls as they were a better team right from the start against the in-experienced Thalaivas' outfit. Bharat fired on all cylinders and his five-point raid in the first half not only set the tone for the Bulls to take charge but also it helped them to inflict the first all-out. The Bulls continue to dominate in the second half as well, and the last 7 minutes turned out to be the worst passage of play for the Thalaivas

Meanwhile, Narender got 9 raid points for the Thalaivas but he didn't get any support from the other raiders. No one was there to revive him whenever he found himself on the bench. The defemsive solidy from the Bulls too proved strong for the raiders as Mahender Singh and Saurabh Nandal got three tackle points each.
Vikas Kandola goes for a buzzer raid of the match and he returns empty-handed. But the important thing is that the Bulls return to the winning ways as they comprehensively beat the Thalaivas by a margin of 17-points

Hello and welcome to the LIVE coverage of the PKL match between Bengaluru Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas. This is myself (Pragadeesh) and I am ready to take you through everything that unfolds in this contest

A cracking South Indian derby on the cards and a win in today's match is vital for both teams as they are lying in the mid-table after playing 4 matches.

Losing Pawan Sehrawat due to injury in the first match came as a big blow for the Thalaivas as their raiding unit has since been struggling to live up to the expectations. The young Narendar has shown glimpses of his raiding skills so far but he hasn't gotten any support from the other raiders.

Himanshu Singh's late heroics against Patna Pirates helped the tram to win the thriller and it's interesting to see whether he can replicate his success against the strong Bengaluru defence.

Bengaluru Bulls, on the other hand, won the first two matches but lost the next two to sit in the 8th spot in the points table. Vikash Kandola got his first super 10 in this season against UP. Yoddha but it wasn't enough for the Bulls to taste success

Tamil Thalaivas' defense has been blowing hot and cold so far, so Kandola can use his swiftness and agility to escape from the tackles.

 Bengaluru Bulls have enough experience compared to the Thalaivas, so they have the favourites tag heading into the encounter. But if the Thalaivas' defence find a way to restrict Kandola then this match would definitely live up to the expectations
