Puneri Paltan have lost five out of the seven matches that they have played and are currently placed just above the Telugu Titans from the bottom of the table. The only positive thing for Pune is the performance of young raiders Pankaj Mohite, Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat. The trio have so far picked up a total of 83 raid points and have shown a good fighting spirit. They will look to continue their positive intent and challenge the defending champions who are low on confidence when it comes to their defence.
Pro Kabaddi PKL 8: Struggling Puneri Paltan take on Bengal Warriors
For Bengal, Maninder Singh has been the star raider having picked up 86 raid points in seven games. However the form of other raiders like Sukesh Hegde and Mohammad Nabhibhaksh have been inconsistent and that will be something that the Pune defenders Vishal Bhardwaj and Abinesh Nadarajan will focus on. Iranian all-rounder Nabhibhaksh has been entrusted with too many responsibilities and while he has been effective in tackles, he has not been that effective during raids. Bengal need another proper raider to complement Maninder.
Bengal’s Sachin Vittala and Abozar Mighani are dominating in the corners and it will be interesting to see how the young Pune raiders perform against these two men. For Pune defender Vishal Bharadwaj’s form is a concern and it will be interesting to see how he performs against Maninder who is known to target the left side of defence. A mouth-watering contest is on the cards tomorrow.
