A thrilling draw against Gujarat Fortunegiants started Bengal Warriors home stretch in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 7. Their next match will be against Puneri Paltan on Sunday in Kolkata. This will be match #81 in the tournament.
The draw in their last match meant the Warriors have played 13 games this season with a record of W6, L4, T3. Bengal are fourth in the league with 43 points ahead of this match. Puneri have a record of W4, L7, T2 with 28 points. Only two sides have fewer points than Puneri at this stage of the tournament.
Bengal Warriors Preview
The Warriors had a loss before the draw against Gujarat. With the top-four chances still not confirmed, Bengal will look to get back to winning ways. It is their attack that is giving impetus to Bengal’s charge. Captain Maninder Singh with 104 raid points is their star player.
For your fantasy side picks, keep a close eye on Maninder. He remains the fifth-best raider of the season. K. Prapanjan is also a good choice, with his 81 raid points. In the defence, it is the duo of Rinku Narwal and Baldev Singh that’s leading them.
Puneri Paltan Preview
Puneri have just four wins in their 13 matches this season, with two ties. One of those ties came in their previous game against Mumbai. The worry for Puneri remains that they need to get into winning ways. With both their raiders and defenders struggling for consistency, Puneri need overall improvement.
Pankaj Mohite and Surjeet Singh have been the star players for Paltan. Keep an eye on them for your fantasy picks. Even Manjeet’s raiding form makes him a good fantasy pick. Overall, Paltan’s poor form doesn’t augur well for their chances.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Maninder Singh is having a great season already, with 104 raid points. The Bengal Warriors captain should be a good pick for your team.
