Match Preview: Pawan Sehrawat takes on Yoddhas army
The PKL extravaganza has reached is the final week and we are coming up to the first eliminator. This is a replay of the last game of the league phase. Yoddhas won that game but not before bulls held the momentum for most of the first half of the game. The previous game these teams played was a tight 2 point win for the Yoddha. In both games, Pawan scored 14 points but the bulls defense failed. Will the story be similar or very different today?
Yoddha have a selection of raiders to choose from with both Monu Goyat and Rishank Devadiga having some positives to offer. The other two raiders have to be Surender Gill and Shrikant Jadhav and their defense pick itself. Bulls, on the other hand, may want to re-consider not playing Rohit Kumar given how the support raiders haven't been able to deliver enough. It has been up to the Bulls defense to bring Pawan back on the mat. The squad selections and the expectations from selected players will be something vexing both coaches and make the right picks could mean half the battle won.
The winner of this contest will be staring down the barrel of a contest with the most consistent team of the season - Dabang Delhi. Both these are probably only two teams from the league phase that Delhi may not want to meet. Both the Yoddhas and Bulls have interesting raiders, while Yoddha probably have the more balanced defenses between the two teams. However, we have seen multiple times over playoffs how one player can take the match away on his own. Who will be that one player of the day? Or will it be a combined team effort to move one of these teams forward to the semis?
