The last match of the Nagpur leg sees “home” team Bengaluru Bulls take on Tamil Thalaivas at the Mankapura Indoor Stadium.
Bengaluru Bulls won against the Bengal Warriors in convincing fashion with a 31-25 win after two defeats and a tie. They will like to end their home leg on a positive note with another win.
Tamil Thalaivas will look for revenge as they take on Bengaluru Bulls again after a close 1-point loss earlier in the leg. Thalaivas staged a great comeback in the second half but just fell short of a tie.
Bengaluru Bulls’ captain Rohit Kumar has had a stellar showing in the PKL up till now with a total of 53 points with 47 raid points in 6 matches. He is supported in the attack by Ajay Kumar, who had his best match against the Warriors with 8 points to his name.
The defence is helmed by Ravinder Pahal alongside Ashish Kumar and Mahendra Singh who were instrumental for the Bulls. The likes of Preetam Chhillar and Sachin Kumar need to step up to the occasion as they haven’t perfomed to their expectations.
Tamil Thalaivas, haven’t yet opened their account with a win in PKL but that is not for lack of trying. They have performed well in both their games, against Telugu Titans and the Bulls.
Thalaivas’ skipper Ajay Thakur, is the lead raider and is assisted by the likes of K Prapanjan, Dong Geon Lee. K Prapanjan has impressed many people and will like to carry his form against the Bulls.
The defence includes the likes of Amit Hooda and C. Arun who form a competent defense. Youngsters like D. Pradap and Vijin Thangadurai have a chance to prove their mettle on the grand stage to make their name.
