Bengal Warriors will try to draw the curtains to their home leg of the Pro Kabaddi League 2016 on a high. The Warriors take on inaugural Pro Kabaddi champions Jaipur Pink Panthers in their sixth game of the competition on Wednesday at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in the City of Joy.
The Kolkata side suffered their first defeat of the third season of Pro Kabaddi on Tuesday at the hands of leaders Patna Pirates. Both teams came into the match with a perfect win record in the competition, but the away side showed more determination to eke out a five-point margin win.
Bengal Warriors are currently second in the table, and they can move to the top if they get past the Pink Panthers in their last home game. The Nilesh Shinde-led side are currently on 21 points with four wins from five games, while Patna Pirates remain on 25 points.
Full five points in Wednesday's match will move Bengal Warriors to the top of the table.
Even in their defeat against the Patna Pirates, Jang Kun Lee and Nitin Tomar performed to the best of their abilities for the Bengal Warriors, and the motivation to make a statement in their last home game will be high.
Jaipur Pink Panthers, however, will not be easy opponents. The inaugural Pro Kabaddi champions have two wins and two losses from four games in the competition so far, and their opening match of the tournament, which resulted in a win against defending champions U Mumba, made all the right statements.
The Pink Panthers won their latest fixture against Dabang Delhi, and Sonu Narwal, Rajesh Narwal and Samarjeet Singh remained the key performers.
