The Bengaluru Bulls are going to be taking on the Telugu Titans for the third time this season. The previous two matches ended with defeats for the Telugu Titans and the Bulls will be looking to repeat that result in this match too.
The Bengaluru Bulls have come back to winning ways after two consecutive losses and must play to their strengths during this crucial stretch of the competition. For the Bengaluru Bulls, raiding and playing at a fast pace is their strength.
Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, Rohit Kumar, and Kashiling Adake form the best raiding trio in the PKL. The focus may be on Pawan Kumar Sehrawat but the other two raiders should not be counted out. They could easily be starting raiders for a number of teams in Pro Kabaddi given the opportunity.
Pawan Kumar Sehrawat has 190 raid points to his name and a Super-10 in this game will push him to 200 points for the season. His record against the excellent defense of the Telugu Titans is pretty good and we would not bet against him getting that Super-10.
The Bengaluru Bulls defense has been problematic as it continues to make mistakes at crucial times. Pro Kabaddi 6 has shown the importance of having a well-rounded team and this is why the performance of Amit Sheoran is so crucial as well.
For the Telugu Titans, the time for sitting back and waiting for the other teams to make mistakes is over. The Telugu Titans have been pushed into a position from which they have had to play aggressive Kabaddi.
Rahul Chaudhari has struggled this season but has found enough momentum recently to be considered a genuine threat. Chaudhari can put the Bengaluru Bulls defense under pressure provided he is on song.
The defense of Vishal Bhardwaj and ABozar Mohajermighani will be keen to get some revenge against a Bengaluru Bulls offense that made them look silly twice in the PKL already. Both the corners are in good form and have scored 50 plus tackle points each.
Getting past them is not going to be easy but as results this season have shown, it is very much possible.
The Bengaluru Bulls lead the head to head against the Telugu Titans 8-3 with three additional matches ending in a tie. The Bengaluru Bulls have lost two of their last three matches, the same as the Telugu Titans.
The Bengaluru Bulls have been the best side of Zone B by a long stretch. The fact that they have still not secured a berth in the Super Playoffs of Pro Kabaddi 6 will rankle. The Telugu Titans have been fired up on the mat after being pushed in a corner but sometimes their intentions don’t quite match up to the talent on the mat.
The contest between the offense of the Bengaluru Bulls and the defense of the Telugu Titans will decide the outcome of this match.
Back the Bengaluru Bulls to win.
