BR vs CHC Dream 11 Prediction: Bangalore Rhinos and Chennai Challengers look to head into the knock-out stages with momentum under them
We’ve come to a culmination in the group stage matches from the land of the Indo International Premier Kabaddi League and a double fixture Sunday will be drawing close to the fixtures. The first of the two inter zonal matches scheduled for the day see Bangalore Rhinos and Chennai Challengers play against each other in leg 3 of a tournament which has over the past month riveted us with its enthralling brand of kabaddi.
For both the sides, this match is one last opportunity for both the sides to tune things ahead of the all important knock-out stages. Having sealed their berth in the top 4 after consolidating second place in Zone A and Zone B respectively, the match accords them an opportunity to try out their best functioning combination and paper over the niggling cracks which could trouble them in the time to come.
Both the sides head into this fixture having faced the same fortune in their previous set of fixtures. Both are coming off a three match winning spree with BR defeating MCR 36-31 while CHC trashed the Pondicherry Predators 50-42.
Overall, this match is too close to call. The Chennai Challengers play in only one way which is to focus everything on their attacking facet, something they’ve reaped the rewards of but it’s not come without a prize. They’ve been battered in the defensive sphere, leaking a massive 368 raiding points, the most by any side this year.
And it’s this flummoxed showing which will continue biting them in the back against the Rhinos. The area is too paper thing and we see them eventually losing due to their defensive problems in what should over all a cracker of a match.
We’re going to keep an equal lend of players from both the sides with CHC dominating in the attacking department while BR will form the majority of defensive minded players.
Defenders for BR vs CHC Dream 11
Having given away just 317 attacking points, the Rhinos are heading into the top 4 as the stringiest and most astute side when it comes to tackling capabilities. And responsible for their effervescent showings have been Lakhan and Ambeswaran with the two taking the brunt of the responsibility on themselves to deliver an outright, extensive performance. Although they’ll be coming up against a stern test in CHC, we expect Ambeswaran to show perseverance in the face of an onslaught.
We’ll be taking Mofimondal from CHC as well given how lacklustre BR have been in the front.
All-Rounders for BR vs CHC Dream 11
Two options staring us right in the face, the one each from either side. Sunil Kumar from the Chennai Challengers comes in while from the Bangalore Rhinos its Vishal. Both are key components of their franchisees, blending attacking with defence seamlessly and in their final group stage match, they’ll be back at it again.
Raiders for BR vs CHC Dream11
Yet again the one player each with both of them being the frontline raiders for their sides. They both have been exquisite, registering Super 10s and a plethora of steals, raids and attacking returns. From BR it’s going to be Vipin Malik who comes in while CHC will be represented for us by Elyaraja.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Both the all-rounders will be our picks for the crucial roles with BR’s Vishal our captain while Sunil Kumar from CHC is the vice-captain.
