U. P. Yoddha seek resurgence against in-form Bulls
U.P. Yoddha are ready to show their true Yoddha spirit, as they shrug off the past and start afresh against the in-form Bengaluru Bulls in their first match of the Ahmedabad leg. To be played at the Eka Arena, Transstadia, it will be a crucial match against the Bulls, who have won four of the five matches they have played so far in ProKabaddi 2019.
One name that is synonymous is Bengaluru Bulls now is that of Pawan Sehrawat. The most successful raider of the previous season is carrying an equally fantastic form, if not better, this year as well. Sehrawat is already leading the tally for the most points and will be the player to watch out for. Though Rohit Kumar has not been at his best this season, his experience in the sport will make him another crucial raider for the Bulls.
However, our defense is a unit that has made us proud time and again. Sumit in the left corner and Ashu Singh as cover have done their job brilliantly and will be expected to continue doing the good work to not let the Bulls pile on raid points. However, better calls to attack and more synchronisation in the contingent can help their performance shine through even more.
Though the Bulls raiders have been fetching points aplenty, their defense looks inconsistent. Mahender Singh in left cover and Saurabh Nandal in left corner have been the best of the lot, but the team has been very dependent on Sehrawat’s super raids than the defense protecting the line, thus resulting in high-scoring matches this season.
Our raiders, Rishank, Shrikant and Monu will have to make the best of the situation and gather as many points as possible. The right defense not being at its best sets the stage for Shrikant to pull off successful raids from his left.
