Puneri Paltans (PUN) will take on Bengaluru Bulls (HAR) in match 29 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Sunday, January 2. 

PUN vs BLR Dream11 prediction

Bengaluru Bulls have won three games on the trot since their season-opening loss, and thus, are favourites to win the match-up against Puneri Paltan in PKL season 8. Riding on the sheer brilliance of Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, the Bulls are third on the Pro Kabaddi standings with 15 points from four games at the time of writing.

Puneri, on the flip side, are rock-bottom on the points table. The likes of Rahul Chaudhari and Sanket Sawant have struggled to make a strong impact on the mat resulting in the team winning just once in four outings.

PUN vs BLR Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8 

Top tip: Best raider

It goes without saying that Pawan Kumar Sehrawat must be the first-choice raider for fantasy players. The Bengaluru Bulls star has been in top form this season with 58 points, including three Super 10s in four matches. Sehrawat - one of PKL’s most prolific raiders - has grabbed 55 raid points from 46 successful raids and will be eager to make the most of Puneri Paltan’s defensive woes.

Top tip: Best defender

Abinesh Nadarajan will have a daunting task at hand to keep the likes of Pawan Sehrawat at bay in the PUN vs BLR match in PKL 2021-22. The young Puneri Paltan defender registered three tackle points in the defeat to Tamil Thalaivas, but will need to produce a stellar performance to deny Sehrawat registering another Super 10 on the trot.

Top tip: Best all-rounder

Puneri Paltan's Aslam Inamdar is the all-rounder to watch out for. Although listed as a raider, Inamdar enters this match-up with a 50 per cent tackle success rate and an average of 1.5 tackles per game. As a raider, the PUN man has amassed 17 raid points from 46 raids. Fantasy players can bank on Aslam Inamdar to put out an optimistic performance against season six champions Bengaluru Bulls on Sunday. 

PUN vs BLR probable starting lineups

PUN starting 7 (probable): Pankaj Mohite, Rahul Chaudhari, Abinesh Nadarajan, Sanket Sawant, Sombir, Vishal Bhardwaj, Aslam Inamdar

BLR starting 7 (probable): Chandran Ranjit, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, Mayur Kadam, Mahender Singh, Saurabh Nandal, Bharat, Aman
