The two unbeaten sides of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 7 will face off in Mumbai when Jaipur Pink Panthers and Bengal Warriors play on Saturday. This match #13 of the season could see an interesting tussle for points.
Jaipur defeated U Mumba 42-23 in a contest that they bossed throughout. Bengal were even more clinical as they thrashed UP Yoddha 48-17. There are incentives for both sides to pick a win, making this an interesting game.
Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview
Jaipur banked on the performance of captain Deepak Niwas Hooda (11 points) to register a 42-23 win over U Mumba. Amit Hooda led the defence with five points, as the inaugural edition PKL season 1 winners started positively.
Nitin Rawal with seven and Deepak Narwal with six were also solid contributors for Jaipur. Overall, it was a very satisfying performance giving a peek into their squad. The Pink Panthers look good on paper and should fancy their chances of a win.
Bengal Warriors Preview
The Warriors had a big win too, turning UP Yoddha inside out with a 48-17 win. A stunning debut for the Iranian all-rounder Mohammad Nabibakhsh (ten points) gave them a great start. Captain Maninder Singh chipped in with nine points, while defender Baldev Singh pocketed seven points.
The complete performance from the first match should put the Warriors confident for this game. They have inflicted three run outs over Yoddha, as the defence ran riot. If they continue to play at the same intensity level, the Warriors will be tough to stop.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Mohammad Nabibakhsh had a great debut for the Warriors with ten points. He was brilliant with his rides and should be among the points again.
