The non-stop action continues for fans as the Pro Kabaddi League enters its sixth week in Bengaluru, after five weeks of exciting entertainment.
In Week 6 of the PKL 2021-22 season, here are five things to keep an eye on.
Bengaluru Bulls will get another chance to reach the summit.
In Week 5, the Bengaluru Bulls had a wonderful opportunity to rise to the top of the table, but they fell 35-37 to Puneri Paltan, who are now in 11th position. They will, however, get another chance to win when they play Gujarat Giants, whom they defeated a week ago.
Their next opponent, Delhi, is also on a losing trend due to their own set of issues. The Bulls have lost all three of their previous games, but they have a chance to recover because their next two opponents aren’t in top form either.
U Mumba’s goal is to turn ties into victory.
U Mumba is one of the teams that has fallen behind at the halfway mark of the season.
After winning only two of their previous eight matches and sharing the spoils four times, the Mumbai-based club will be seeking to earn all five points in their next two encounters.
Their game against the Steelers, on the other hand, finished in a stalemate as last man Abhishek Singh elected not to attempt a touch in the final seconds of the game. With the tournament coming to a close and a playoff berth still up for grabs, don’t be shocked if U Mumba abandons their risk-averse ways against a certain rivals this time.
Dabang Delhi confronts an uphill battle to keep their current status.
Dabang Delhi is in a pickle, and they’re in risk of losing their prized first place.
Only 57 raid points have been scored in their previous five games, while 45 tackle points have been scored by their defense.
Furthermore, Delhi has little time to recover as they play three opponents this week: Puneri Paltan, Bengaluru Bulls, and Gujarat Giants. While the Paltans and Giants are both in the bottom part of the standings, the Bulls are breathing down their necks, thrashing the Delhi-based side 61-22 for their greatest win of the season.
U.P. Yoddha is looking to extend their winning streak.
U.P. Yoddha has been on a roll lately, going undefeated in their previous five games and winning four of them. Their defenders deserve credit for racking up 65 tackle points over the course of the five games.
This week, the Yoddhas will face the Haryana Steelers, Jaipur Pink Panthers, and Telugu Titans.
After losing to Jaipur and sharing the spoils with Haryana earlier in the season, the Pardeep Narwal-led team would be eager to avenge their defeat and continue their upward trend.
Telugu Titans are trying to capitalise on their first victory.
Telugu Titans, who had gone winless in their first ten PKL games, got their major break when they overcame Jaipur Pink Panthers by a thin one-point margin. In their following encounter, though, they were defeated by U Mumba by seven points.
The Titans have the fourth-highest raid points per game, while the Pirates have the most average tackle goals scored. In terms of average tackle points, the Deccan team ranks third from the bottom, whereas Yoddhas average 19.67 raid points per game.
