The Patna squad will fight against Bengaluru team in a Zone B match tonight at the Pro Kabaddi League 2018.
Patna is in the fourth position with after 8 matches and is falling off a loss against the Telugu team. Bengaluru play tonight following a seven days gap when they whipped Haryana graciously after a 20 points pull from Pawan Sehrawat. They are in the fifth position from 4 matches.
Patna’s defense was their drawback as they oversaw only 6 tackle points in their previous match. Patna truly needs to get their defense into shape if they want their battle to be back on track.
Bengaluru has been extraordinary particularly in the attacking division. While Bengaluru’s resistance didn’t meet up in the last match, they will hope to profit by Patna’s losses and score points in this match.
The two groups will search for a win, particularly Patna who will need to break their losing streak and give their fans something to cheer for. They have to beat their defense into shape and discover Pardeep’s ally for striking. Bengaluru will hope to create an inconvenience for the Patna’s resistance.
Tentative 7 players aligned for each team:
Patna Team: (Captain) Pardeep Narwal, Manjeet, Tushar Patil, Jaideep, Manish, Vikas Kale, Vijay
Bengaluru Team: (Captain) Rohit Kumar, Jasmer Singh, Pawan Sehrawat, Ashish, Kashiling Adake, Mahender Singh, Sandeep
Pardeep Narwal and Pawan Sehrawat
Pardeep Narwal has looked great so far in this season apart from the poor exhibition in his performance against the Telegu team. Pawan Sehrawat’s strong raiding capability will be something everybody would be eyeing at and it will be interesting to see his alliance with Adake who causes nightmares for any opponent’s defense.
Vikas Kale, Jaideep, and Mahender Singh
Mahender Singh’s extraordinary defense tactics will be a vital feature in tonight’s match against the Patna team and this could have a critical impact on the match as well. Vikas Kale and Jaideep are certainly in excellent forms and have displayed fantastic performances in their previous matches.
Vijay’s all-rounding ability has saved Patna many times and he would be expected to do the same in tonight’s match too.
Match Prediction – Patna vs Bengaluru
Patna yet again could steal the show and emerge out as the winner in tonight’s match.
