Trajectory in the PKL


The Bengaluru Bulls had a great start to the Pro Kabaddi League 2014 season. They finished third on the table behind U Mumba but advanced to the playoffs. The PKL 2015 saw them give a similar performance and finish third yet again. However, this time they reached the finals after beating Telugu Titans 39-38. Unfortunately, they lost 36-30 to U Mumba in the finals.


Bangalore team faced a huge setback in the 2016 season when they finished seventh on the table. The team couldn't make a huge comeback in the next season finishing fourth in Zone B, and not qualifying for the playoffs. The team will be looking to get on with 2021 Pro Kabaddi season and make a positive start to the campaign.


Low Points


The 2016 season was the worst phase the Bangalore team went through. They lost 12 out of 14 matches and were sitting at the bottom of the table. The starting match was a win. However, their performance declined with each defeat in the league.
