Match Analysis

The Bengaluru Bulls have been unstoppable in Pro Kabaddi 6 so far thanks to their brilliant offense. They have three raiders of the highest quality that keep coming hard at the opposition. Pawa Kumar Sehrawat, Kasling Adake, and Rohit Kumar have been prolific in their scoring so far.

The three players combined for 28 points in their last game as they decimated the Patna Pirates with surprising ease. While all three of the players are superb in their own right, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat is in another league. He has scored 74 points in five games at an average of 14.8 points per game. That is easily more than anyone else in the league. He also has 8 Super Raids to his name, double that of the next best in the league.

If Pawan Kumar Sehrawat continues in this vein of form, The Bengaluru Bulls are going to be very hard to stop.

Kashling Adake may be scoring his points primarily on raids but he also has 11 tackle points to his name, making him valuable on both sides of the mat. He is one of the chief reasons that the Bengaluru Bulls have such good balance to rely upon.

U.P Yoddha is going to have a hard time recovering from the beating that the Tamil Thalaivas handed out to them. Their offense did not find a way past the Tamil Thalaivas while their own defense was helpless to stop the opposition scoring.

The U.P. Yoddha defense must find a way to stop the Bengaluru Bulls leading trio that is going to be come like a tornado at them. Jeeva Kumar returns to the U.P Yoddha side and he is going to be crucial for them in this match. He has the experience and the skills to be able to stop the Bengaluru Bulls but he will need an improved performance from the rest of the defensive team as well.

Shrikant Jadhav and Prashanth Kumar Rai are the best raiders in the U.P. Yoddha side and they will need to shake off the disappointment of the last match quickly. Going up against the Bengaluru Bulls means matching them point for point and that will require the best from both of these raiders.

Shrikanth Jadhav has 60 raid points in 8 games and if he can add to that tally in a significant manner, then we may have an exciting contest on our hands.

Key stat

The Bengaluru Bulls hold a 2-1 advantage over U.P Yoddha in their head to head matches. More importantly, though, the current form that they are carrying with them in this contest makes them a very formidable opponent.

Verdict

It is difficult to advise backing U.P Yoddha after its dismal performance in the last game. The Bengaluru Bulls have been one of the best sides in the PKL this year and they are full of confidence. Their strategy of loading the starting eleven with quality attacking options is nothing new but is being carried out with amazing efficiency.

Back the Bengaluru Bulls to win.
