The big battle –

Pawan Kumar Sehrawat vs. Nitesh Kumar

Bengaluru Bulls’ dynamite in offence, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat has been good in Bengaluru Bulls’ home leg, scoring 21 raid points in three matches. Sehrawat has scored at an average of 7.5 raid points in his two outing against U.P. Yoddha in Season 6, a tally much below his season average of 11.58. Sehrawat will be keen to add another big performance to his collection against U.P. Yoddha’s defence.

Right Corner Nitesh Kumar’s performances in Season 6 have been a silver lining for U.P. Yoddha. He currently ranks second in the race for the season’s Best Defender, having scored 54 tackle points in 15 appearances. Kumar is one of only three players to score over 50 tackle points in Season 6 and his average of 3.6 tackle points per game, places him fifth in the league in that category. Kumar has scored 10 tackle points in his two appearances against Bengaluru Bulls, indicating that he thrives when he comes up against their raiding trio.

Key Khiladi –

Rohit Kumar – Bengaluru Bulls

Captain Rohit Kumar has been in sizzling form in Bengaluru Bulls’ home leg, averaging 11 in his three outings so far and is peaking just in time for his team as they enter the latter half of their fixture list in Season 6. Kumar delivered a memorable 14-point performance against U.P. Yoddha in their 35-29 victory earlier in the campaign, the highlight of which was a streak of four straight raids where Kumar was the last man on the mat for his team and managed to come away with at least a point every single time.

Sachin Kumar – U.P. Yoddha

With Bengaluru Bulls boasting of two outstanding right raiders in Sehrawat and Kashiling Adake, U.P. Yoddha’s Left Corner Sachin Kumar will be expecting a busy night and his performance against that potent duo could prove to be critical in deciding the match’s outcome. Kumar has scored eight tackle points in his two appearances against Bengaluru Bulls in Season 6 and U.P. Yoddha will be hopeful of another big performance from the brilliant Left Corner to boost their chances of getting back to winning ways.
