Share With :

The fans at the Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium witnessed yet another thrilling clash. We begin the game by taking an early lead but soon Bengaluru Bulls levelled things up. Post then the proceedings were going neck-to-neck until the Bulls leapfrogged by inflicting an all-out right before the half-time. That particular moment caused us a lot and hence we were trailing 9-17 at the halfway stage.

Post break, in quest of comeback we came hard as Rohit Baliyan (11 points) was on a surge of picking up quick points. He did his job fabulously by plucking his first Super 10 of PKL5. R.Sriram (5 points) continued from where he left in the previous game as he played a good second fiddle. Skipper, Meraj Sheykh (2 points) looked sharp but unfortunately, we lost his services after the Iranian beast did some damage to himself on the mat. Swapnil (3 points) and Yatharth (2 points) were brilliant with their tackles as they led the defence well. We inflicted an all-out in the dying moments but that wasn't enough to stop the Bulls from crossing the finishing line and eventually they edged passed us to win the match by 32-35.

Talking about landmarks, Rohit Baliyan who had a great outing on the mat last night added some feathers to his hat by completing his 50 Raid points in PKL 5. He also notched up 100 Successful raids in his PKL.

We are now heading to Pune where we will take on the home team Puneri Paltan in our last game of this season.
