Bengaluru Bulls (BLR) will take on Bengal Warriors (BEN) in match 14 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Sunday, December 26.
BLR vs BEN Dream11 prediction
Star-studded Bengaluru Bulls take on defending champions Bengal Warriors on Sunday. After an early blemish, the Bulls registered a comprehensive 38-30 win over led by Pawan Sehrawat’s nine points. However, they will need to be at their absolute best if they hope to overcome the Bengal Warriors.
The reigning champions are unbeaten in the tournament so far with two wins from as many games. They are currently placed second in the standings and a win will help them leapfrog Dabang Delhi K.C. to the top of the standings.
There is nothing much to separate between the two teams although Bengal Warriors hold a slight advantage owing to the depth of their squad.
BLR vs BEN Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8
Top tip: Best raider
Pawan Sehrawat is the best choice from the raiders’ category. The Bengaluru Bulls captain has accrued 21 raid points across two matches including a Super 10 in the first game of the season against U Mumba. The Bengaluru Bulls will need another top performance from Pawan if they hope to challenge the strong Bengal Warriors set-up.
Top tip: Best defender
Bengal Warriors’ Rinku Narwal will be a great pick for this clash. The corner defender scored 60 tackle points across 23 matches in the previous season for Bengal Warriors’ and has been a fulcrum of their defensive unit for the past two seasons. Although Rinku has had a quiet season so far, he is too good a player to be ignored.
Top tip: Best all-rounder
Amongst the all-rounders, picking Mohammad Esmaeil Nabibakhsh in the fantasy team is a no-brainer. The Iranian bagged seven raid points and three tackle points in the opening game against U.P. Yoddha as he played a pivotal role in his side’s win. Nabibakhsh’s consistency to score points in both offence as well as defence makes him a must-have pick for this clash.
BLR vs BEN probable starting lineups
BLR starting 7 (probable): Pawan Kumar Sehrawat (captain), Chandran Ranjit, GB More, Mahender Singh, Mayur Kadam, Amit Sheoran, Saurabh Nandal
BEN starting 7 (probable): Maninder Singh (captain), Sukesh Hegde, Mohammad Nabibakhsh, Parveen Satpal, Darshan J, Rinku Narwal, Abozar Mighani
