PKL 7: Bengaluru Bulls overpower U Mumba in close contest

Mumbai : Riding on a terrific raid performance by Pawan Sehrawat, Bengaluru Bulls beat U Mumba by 30-26 in a Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) season 7 match here on Sunday.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The match was built as the battle between Bengluru”s Sehrawat and U Mumba”s Fazel Atrachali and it was the raider who came out on top.

The home side displayed a strong performance in their home stadium against Puneri Paltan and was more than ready to face Bengaluru, against whom they have their second best record with 10 victories. However, Sehrawat got a Super 10 and single-handedly flipped the table for Bengaluru as they sneaked their way through victory.

Strong performances by Arjun Deshwal and Atrachali went in vain as some unforced errors towards the end cost them the match.

Things started to even out when the previous match”s super-sub Deshwal from U Mumba was called out of bounds after a review by Bengaluru. Bengaluru took the lead by the 11th minute but Atrachali”s men covered the lead by the 14th minute.

Meanwhile, Sehrawat got his 300th raid point in the form of a sneaky back kick on Atrachali.

The game continued to shift from one team to the other as the first half ended with Bengaluru leading 13-11.

U Mumba carried some momentum in the second half after they got Bengaluru All-Out in the 24th minute to take the lead from Bengaluru to 16-13. Sehrawat made an immediate comeback as he flipped over a diving Sandeep Narwal”s back to cross the mid-line. Sehrawat had to keep his persona at side as he played cautiously with no help from his fellow raiders, while U Mumba”s Deshwal continued to prove himself as more than just a one match wonder as he got 6 touch points in a game.

Sehrawat made a strong raid as he got Narwal and danger man Deshwal in his 37th minute raid to inch closer to U Mumba with the score reading 23-22. It was an unforced error by Rohit Baliyan when he was the last man on the mat for U Mumba as he entered the lobby without a touch which inferred an All-Out on U Mumba.

It was a slim lead but a slender one that led Bengaluru to take over the match with the game ended with the score reading 30-26 in their favour.
