Puneri Paltan vs Bengaluru Bulls
Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai
2019 Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 – Match 51
Wednesday, 21st August 2019; 7:30 PM IST.
After a dramatic draw in the last match of Season 7 outing of Pro Kabaddi. Puneri Palton will be trying to play better with Bengaluru Bulls at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Wednesday. The reigning champion is confident of two victories in Chennai, having already gotten the better of hosts Tamil Thalaivas at the venue.
Puneri Paltan played out an exciting tie against hosts Tamil Thalaivas in their last game in Chennai leg. Paltan’s defence held firm and beset the Tamil Thalaivas raiders. Pankaj Mohite was once again the best raider on the mat for Pune. Defender Girish Ernak had a strangely poor game against Thalaivas and he would look improve his presentation. The Puneri Paltan skipper returned to form in style with seven tackle points and he’ll be hoping to put in a similar display against Bengaluru Bulls.
Player To Watch Out For- Pankaj Mohite
Bengaluru Bulls are standing at the fourth position in the PKL07 ladder with 5 wins and three losses in the competition. The last time champions hammered host Tamil Thalaivas in their past group match and they would be looking at another predominant show against a weak Puneri Paltan. ‘Hi-flying’ Pawan Sehrawat is driving the pioneers’ load up in the raiding department with 98 raid points in 8 games. Amit Sheoran, Ankit, Saurabh Nandal and Vijay Kumar showed how good they can be against Ajay ‘Iceman’ Thakur as well as Rahul ‘Showman’ Chaudhari in Bengaluru Bulls’ last game and they’ll be hoping to have a similar sort of impact against Puneri Paltan.
