Bengal Warriors beat Tamil Thalaivas 33-29 in PKL 7

Greater Noida, Oct 9 (UNI) Bengal Warriors produced a clinical performance to beat Tamil Thalaivas 33-29 in a VIVO Pro Kabaddi match, here at the Shaheed Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex in Greater Noida on Wednesday.
Sukesh Hegde (6 raid points), Mohammad Nabibakhsh (seven points) and Rinku Narwal ( High 5 with
5 tackle points) impressed for the Warriors as they picked up a win to go top of the VIVO Pro
Kabaddi league points table.
Rahul Chaudhari scored 7 points for the Thalaivas as they finished their woeful campaign with another loss. The star-studded Chennai-based team managed only 4 wins the entire season.
Tamil Thalaivas approached the match with confidence, having beaten Jaipur Pink Panthers in their
previous outing, and opened a lead in the early minutes thanks to Ajith Kumar and Rahul
Chaudhari’s raids.
Rahul moved well on the mat to pick up valuable points but Bengal’s defence got into the game with Mohammad Nabibakhsh impressing. Soon Bengal were in the lead but Thalaivas regrouped well to stay in the match.
Bengal, sadly, looked like a side who had their eyes set on the semi-finals clash next week, and their lack of ruthlessness allowed the Tamil side to make a comeback and level the points. The first half ended with the scores 13-13.
The Bengal Warriors stepped up their game in the second half thanks largely to raiders Nabibakhsh
and Sukesh Hegde. Though Ran Singh pulled off a Super Tackle in the fifth minute of the half it was
just a case of delaying the inevitable with the Warriors picking up their All-Out in the 8th minute to
open up a 6-point lead.
Thalaivas’ Ajith Kumar was in no mood to be contained though and his raids made it a two-point game soon after the All-Out. But Rinku Narwal produced a Super Tackle with 7 minutes remaining to halt Thalaivas’ domination.
Sourabh Tanaji Patil also chipped in with valuable raid points for the Warriors as they once again opened up a 6-point lead with two minutes remaining. The Bengal defence held firm in the final minutes to clinch a victory.
