The struggling defending champions Bengal Warriors take on a consistent Tamil Thalaivas in a bid to resurrect their campaign in match 51 of PKL 2021.

Strategic Takeaways

After starting their campaign on a shaky note, the Tamil Thalaivas have finally started to gain some momentum, thanks to their rock-solid defensive unit. The team, however, will expect a bit more consistency from their raiding department to reduce the overdependence on Surjeet and co.

The Bengal Warriors, on the other hand, started their campaign in a brilliant way by winning their first two matches. But, things have gone downhill soon with and they have lost five out of their last six matches. The defending champions look a pale shadow of themselves with captain Maninder Singh waging a lone battle.

Head to Head

The Bengal Warriors have been a dominant force against the Thalaivas in PKL, losing just a solitary match against them. In fact the only time the Thalaivas defeated the Warriors was back in their debut season in 2017.

Key Battle

Maninder Singh v/s Surjeet

Their defence led by captain Surjeet Singh has been one of the biggest reasons behind Tamil Thalaivas' consistent run in PKL 2021. The Bengal Warriors, on the other hand, have been heavily reliant on their captain Maninder Singh to get them points in raids, meaning this clash could ultimately boil down to the clash of captains.
