The Kolkata leg of the Pro Kabaddi League of the current season will lay an on spot clash in Zone B as the home side Bengal will strive to beat Bengaluru at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium tonight at 9 PM.
Bengal with all its might will target to keep the stress rolling on the table toppers Bengaluru as they already initiated their home leg with two victories and have already secured a safe place in the consecutive playoffs. Maninder Singh and Jang Kun Lee have maintained a good form in Kolkata and the defense led by their captain Ran Singh and the much-accomplished cover defender Surjeet Singh have done well collaboratively.
Bengaluru will strive to get into this fixture with the sole aim of keeping the top spot intact in the Zone B standings. Any win or tie against the Bengal side will certainly enable them to secure a spot in the current summit. Pawan Kumar Sehrawat and Rohit Kumar will hope to head the raiding unit against the stable and steady Bengal’s defense and be an inspiration for their team to win their first-ever win over the Bengal side in this season after the two annihilations following from the previous fixtures.
In tonight’s clash, both sides will look forward to winning as they both would want to dignify their positions in the current season.
