Our Predictions:Puneri Paltan 52:46 Bengal Warriors

Manjeet Chhillar yet again fashioned another win for his team Puneri Paltan in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 4 at the Patliputra Sports Complex, Patna.

They beat Bengal Warriors with consummate ease at 38-31 to get into the top position with 25 points in 7 matches. Bengal Warriors on the other hand remain in seventh place.

Nilesh Shinde led the Bengal Warriors for this tie as Surjeet Narwal was not even among the substitutes and for Puneri Paltan, star raider and former Bengal Warriors man Nitin Tomar was absent in the starting lineup for this game. The Pune team raced into a quick 4-1 lead before the Bengal men picked up a couple of their own.

Bengal Warriors were handed out the first all out of the game in the 17th minute which meant that they were now trailing 5-10.
It seemed as if the Bengal warriors were caught completely off guard as the Puneri Paltan piled on the pressure early on with some supreme defending and expert raiding.

Puneri Paltan had lost their last match narrowly at 29-27 to Bengaluru Bulls conceding the winning point during the last raid by their rivals. They had displayed good teamwork in that nerve wracking encounter and it came as no surprise that they ran through their rivals with consummate ease today.
There was no respite for them as even Manjeet Chhillar as the raider scored four raid points with six successful tackles.
His success has given Puneri Paltan the much needed flexibility to coach Ashok Shinde. It appears that Joginder and Ravinder has sorted out their problems in defense too.
Even Girish Ernak the normally go to man for the Bengal Warriors had to be substituted. In their anxiety to get back into the match the Bengal Warriors went for broke and the strategy didn’t work. The team from the sugar belt ended their campaign on a sweet note with today’s capital gains.
