The home leg of Bengaluru initiates their first match against Bengal in a Zone B match at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune tonight at 8 PM.
The Bengaluru team had a far-reaching triumph, 45-32 over the Jaipur team due to an extraordinary 19-point execution by their star raider, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat. Mahender Singh was the best defender for the side as he scored his second High-5 of the season. Bengaluru’s starting line-up looks all settled with the present mix and would probably continue as before except if there’s any injury panic.
The Bengal team is likewise coming off a triumph over the Pune in a nearly battled experience by an edge of 4 points, which is 26-22. It was the defense of Bengal with 10 tackle points that turned into the differentiator in the experience. Vijin Thangadurai was the best defender for their side with 3 tackle points. While Maninder Singh was once more the best raider for their side with 6 raid points, the unexpected factor was the man on introduction, Ravindra Ramesh Kumawat who scored 5 points involving 4 raids and a tackle point, and it wouldn’t be a shock if his performance tonight enables his mentor to give him an all-inclusive keep in the side.
The two groups, Bengaluru and Bengal, haven’t confronted each other in the season yet so it would be a decisive match.
