Bengal Warriors will take on Tamil Thalaivas for one last time in this edition of the Pro Kabaddi League in Bengal’s den on Friday. Tamil Thalaivas are out of contention of making it to the playoffs but Bengal Warriors are still fighting for a spot in the playoffs. Currently, Bengal Warriors are seated on the fourth spot in the points table and only two teams from their group will be making it to the playoffs. Bengal Warriors have won 8 of their 16 matches and they would aim to displace the Telugu Titans to seal a berth in the play-offs.

The teams are facing each other for the second consecutive Friday, they had faced each other in Match 112 last week. The Warriors had come out on top in the match with a 28-21 win courtesy a stronger raiding performance against the Thalaivas. They had scored 16 raid points vis-a-vis the Thalaivas’ 11 points. Maninder Singh (7 points) and, the substitute, Bhupender Singh (5 points) were the Warriors’ top raiders on the night, whereas their captain, Surjeet Singh was the top defender for his side with 6 tackle points.

Since the defeat, the Thalaivas have featured in a match against the U.P. Yoddha where the match ended in a tie (25-25). While their defense was again on point, especially Amit Hooda who scored yet another High-5, it was again their raiders who gave a sub-par performance on the night and could manage just 13 raid points.
