The Pro Kabaddi League has moved onto the business end of the competition with some semi finalists yet to be decided with Telugu Titans and Patna Pirates being a point away from one another. These two teams just have a match left to play, out of which Patna play Bengaluru tonight, with the latter lying on fifth position (36 points from 11 matches so far). Titans and Pirates have 41 and 40 points in their kitty.
Hence, tonight's game between Patna
and Bengaluru at Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in Bangalore
could play an important role in deciding the semi-finalists spot as well.
Both the teams have had a decent run up to the tournament, where they have come up with mix fortunes. Patna
has won 6 out of the 13 matches played so far, while Bengaluru has won the same number of matches but only played 11 matches, hence Bengaluru are best suited to reach the semis, if all goes well.
Bengaluru's captain Manjit Chillar has shown glimpses of what he is capable of and needs to come up with another performance, which would help Bengaluru walk away with the game. Apart from the skipper, Pramod Singh, Gupreet Singh, Ajay Thakur and co needs to show their class as well. If they get their act going, it would be difficult for Patna to contain them.
But, Patna with their performance in the competition , has shown how big a threat can they be. Their captain, Rakesh Kumar has been an instrumental player along with his leadership skills in the first edition of the league and his team mates would like him to continue the same tonight as well.
