9th August 2017 – 1st match – 8 p.m.
While Bengaluru Bulls have failed to claim a win in their last three games, Bengal Warriors have won two out of two this season. The Warriors displayed a strong raiding force in Maninder, Jang and Vinod, and a stable defence line led by Surjeet against an injury-struck UP Yoddha. They are likely to repeat this performance against the hosts at Nagpur. On the other hand, Bengaluru who are coming out of a draw (21-21) against Telugu Titans, will want Rohit Kumar to spend more time on the mat and to get the team back to its winning ways. Both teams are expected to retain their starting line-up.
Bengaluru Bulls: Preetam Chhillar, Ashish Kumar, Mahender Singh, Ajay Kumar, Rohit Kumar, Ravinder Pahal, Sachin Kumar
Possible Substitutes: Sanjay Shreshta; Sumit Singh; Pardeep Kandola; Amit Sheoran; Harish Naik
Bengal Warriors: Maninder Singh, Surjeet Singh, Rahul Kumar, Jang Kun Lee, Vinod Kumar, Shrikant Tewthia, Ran Singh
Possible Substitutes: Young Chang Ko; Bhupender Singh; Deepak Narwal; Ravindra Ramesh Kumawat; Kuldeep
Players who cannot be ignored:
Rohit Kumar: The Bengaluru skipper spent a good amount of a time on the bench against Telugu Titans and was yet able to score 5 points. Expect him to stay on the mat for a longer period and bag more points.
Jang Kun Lee: The South Korean raider has looked sharp in the initial two games. He has scored 15 raid points from 22 raids. During Bengal’s previous fixture against UP, Jang was taken off before the final whistle due to wrist discomfort.
Alternative players you could consider: Ajay Kumar, Ran Singh, Ravinder Pahal
