BLR Vs PUN Dream 11 Prediction: Puneri Paltan look to move one step closer towards the top 6 in their culminating home leg match.
What began on a positive note for the side has taken no time in unravelling. Getting things off in perfect fashion in their home leg, Puneri Paltan have ever since then wasted their last two matches, squandering what should have been an opportunity the side should have grabbed with both hands.
Failing to cover themselves with glory with their previous couple of showings, the last match in particular was one where the side had nothing to write home about. Leading by 7 points against Tamil Thalaivas with a mere two minutes to hang onto what should have been a safe margin, an irresponsible approach by the side’s defenders saw them lunge and dash at raiders, letting slip of the advantage the side had to settle for a draw.
Prior to that, the side had been decimated, suffering a 22 pint defeat against Patna Pirates, results which leave the side chasing a spot in the top 6. Currently 11 points behind sixth place, the side know they are in dire need of a win today if they are to wipe over that deficit, a necessity which should see them up the ante against Bengaluru Bulls today.
They know things aren’t going to get any lighter for their jittery defended today though with last year’s winners having finally found their consistency to climb as high as fourth in the points tally. With our wins from the last 6 matches with one of those two defeats only coming by a petty margin of two points, the side will be looking to nail down their spot in the top 6, one which is far from ascertained as things stand.
Probable Playing 7
Rohit Kumar, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, Mahender Singh, Ashish Kumar, Amit Sheoran, Mohit Sehrawat, Sumit Singh
Nitin Tomar, Manjeet Singh, Pankaj Mohite, Surjeet Singh, Hadi Tajik, Jadhav Balasaheb, Shubham Shinde
Puneri Paltan have had no one but themselves to blame for their recent set of results with their gaping holes being born due to their own flailing. What should have been straightforward matches for them were complicated by dismal showings in their defensive setup, a predicament Bengaluru Bull’s raiding unit will flourish on to take their side to a win today.

Dream 11 Picks
Puneri Paltan’s defence has had its work cut out over the course of the previous two matches and with Bengaluru Bulls functioning as a unit in attack, we envisage things to remain abysmal for Puneri Paltan at the back today as well. And if they have their problems in defence, Bengaluru Bulls have blown apart while defending infront of tricky raiding sides as well, seeing us keep our investment down to a minimum in this facet for today.
We begin with the pick of Jadhav Balasaheb Shahaji from Puneri Paltan while from the other side we have gone in with Vijay Kumar for today’s match.
Puneri Paltan’s Manjeet was always going to be opted by us over here. H’s been the side’s leading raider, getting 92 points in 17 matches and if his side are to have any chance of getting the full five points from this clash, the raider will need to put in yet another testing display infront of Bengaluru Bulls.
We are also choosing Mohit Sehrawat in this segment with the Bengaluru Bulls player a cheap player, someone who should get us enough points to justify his value.
All our money is directed towards this side of our side the raiders set to reign supreme in this match. The defining moment will be crafted out by the attacking player for the side winning today’s encounter, making the two players come in from Bengaluru Bulls.
With the most points for his side and the most raid points as well at 216 and 206 respectively, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat is selected by us along with Rohit Kumar while we are electing Pankaj Mohite from the other side. His 81 points have assisted Manjeet perfectly, seeing him play out the role of the secondary raider impeccably for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Manjeet is selected to be our side’s captain for today while we are going in with Pawan as the vice-captain.
