Jaipur Pink Panthers will collide with the Bengaluru Bulls in an Inter-Zone wildcard match at Netaji Subash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in Kolkata today.

Pink Panthers have changed their fortunes by performing consistently and have only lost twice in their last seven games. Both the losses came against Gujarat Fortune Giants in close encounters, 29-34 and 31-33.

Pink Panther’s last outing was against Dabang Delhi which ended in a tie with 37-37 scoreline. K Selvamani was the pick of the lot who scored 11 points coming off the bench.

On the final day of league matches, Pink Panthers will be looking to end the season on the high. After a terrible campaign, Pink Panthers need to give a deserving farewell to the skipper Anup Kumar who recently announced his retirement from the sport of kabaddi.

Bengaluru Bulls, on the other hand, have had a stellar campaign and have emerged to be one of the strongest contenders to lift the title. Rohit Kumar has returned to form at the right time for the Bulls and his partnership with Pawan Kumar is a threat for any defensive side. The defence department is taken care by the duo of Mahender Singh and Ashish Kumar Sangwan who be play a major factor during the playoffs.

Pro Kabaddi League 2019 playoffs will commence from 30th December after a two days gap to rest the players and staff.


Previous Meetings

Last time these two sides met was in the 70th game of the season that was played in Ahmedabad. This contest was won by Bengaluru Bulls who won the match by 45-32.

Pawan Sherawat was the man of the match with his 19 raid points in the match. Mahender Singh also chipped in with his high-five performance and stood out in the defence department.
