FT: Tamil Thalaivas 35-30 Bengal Warriors

What a crackerjack of a contest this has turned out to be in the dying moments. Bengal Warriors fought their way back after trailing by eight points in the first half but they never figured out a way to inflict an all-out throughout the contest

Maninder picked up crucial raid points as he led the fight in the second half but Narender too was striking at the other end as both raiders continued to exchange blows. It looked like Bengal were on the verge of inflicting an all-out after Maninder's super raid in the 33rd minute but Narender revived two players instantly with a multi-point raid to save the Thalaivas from trouble.

It went neck and neck in the final five minutes too. Shrikant Jadhav picked up two quick raid points to reduce the deficit to just one point but Maninder can't produce his heroics when it mattered the most. Sagar ran across to tackle him and to make matters worse for the Warriors, it turned out to be a super tackle

Hello and welcome to the LIVE coverage of the PKL 2022 match between Tamil Thalaivas and Bengal Warriors at the Gachibowli indoor stadium in Hyderabad

Since helping the Warriors to steal a tie from nowhere against the Thalaivas last time, Maninder went on to record a super 10 in the last six matches, scoring 95 raid points. Tamil Thalaivas' defense tend to make mistakes at crunch moments this season, so Maninder will be aware of their defensive errors and would look to expose them

On the other hand, Bengal Warriors might look strong on paper but beating the resurgent Tamil Thalaivas won't be easy for them. If Bengal have Maninder to do the damage for them, the Thalaivas have Narender Hoshiyar, who has single-handedly helped the team to win most matches. The defense from both teams have their task cut out tonight against these two mighty raiders
