Saturday, 20 July; 8:30 PM IST.
Defending champions Bengaluru Bulls begin their VIVO Pro Kabaddi title defence against three-time winners Patna Pirates at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad on Saturday. It promises to be an action-packed encounter with both teams boasting of star raiding units. The Bengaluru Bulls have crowned champions of PKL season thanks to a stunning performance from young Pawan Sehrawat. He will have the experienced Rohit Kumar in support, making them one of the most lethal raiding duos in the league. Mahender Singh, who scored 63 tackle points in the previous season, would be shouldering the responsibility in the defence.
Player To Watch Out For – Rohit Kumar
The Patna Pirates have been a consistent PKL team ever since the inception of the league but the three-time champions failed to make it to the playoffs last season. They have their own star raider in the form of last season’s top scorer with 271 points, Pardeep Narwal. Jaideep – scorer of 58 tackle points last campaign – will be looking to work in tandem with Jawahar Dagar, Vikas Jaglan and Hadi Oshtorak to keep the Bengaluru Bulls’ potent raiding duo at bay.
