BR vs PNP Best Dream 11 Side: Resurgent Bangalore Rhinos look to continue their newly found attacking spree to put down favourites Pune Pride in the final
44 matches, over 30 days of meticulous kabaddi and the dramatic land of the Indo International Premier Kabaddi League lead to one thing only. It’s the summit clash on Tuesday which is set to enthral us in the showpiece league for one final time and the identity of the two finalists have been made known to us as well. Its Pune Pride and Bangalore Rhinos who’ll be squaring off against each other today for one final shot at getting their hands around the glistening trophy.
While Pune Pride’s foray into the final off a 39-34 win against the Chennai Challengers hardly surprises us, it’s the Rhinos whose journey has taken us aback. From being billed as being out of the reckoning for a top 4 spot at one stage to upsurging the relentless Diler Dilli unit 63-33 in the semi-final, the path to the final has been an alluring one. Come the final, the Rhinos will for one last time be looking to pull off yet another upset and down Pune Pride in their quest for being proclaimed the winners of the first season of IIPKL.
The last time these two met was almost a month back with Pune Pride just about edging the Zone A fixture on that particular day with a 32-29 win.
If we were asked to pass our final judgement on this match even a couple of days back, the verdict would have stood unanimously with Pune Pride. However after what the Rhinos did to Dilli to score the highest raiding points of the season against an particular defensive unit to completely take them apart, the scenario infront of us is no longer the same.
While PNP are still favourites going into the match, the momentum which BR have behind them is colossal. They are the second best defensive unit behind Pune Pride and having fixed their attacking problems as well will be a fine match for their opposition on the night.
At the end of the match, we just see Pune Pride’s more well rounded and complete unit pulling off the win for them. They’ve been far too consistent and astute this season and they won’t let their guard down like Delhi against BR.
Defenders for BR vs PNP Dream 11
With 343 and 360 defective points conceded, it’s safe to say we have two of the finest defending units at our hands in this final match of the league. And that is going to see us pick our three defenders to indulge our Dream 11 side in as well with two coming in from PNP while the one from BR.
From PNP, Jitendra Yadav and Sachin are going to be the two players who constitute our side on the night while BR will see Lakhan come in for us. Expect all three to be judicious to your outfit one last time this season and put in a show of strength.
All-Rounders for BR vs PNP Dream 11
Two players who we are going to shell out the big credits for and rightfully so. From PNP it’s going to be someone who has by far been their finest performer all season. Amarjeeth Singh just can’t stop getting points and with his high 5s and super 10s coming at will, we fully envision him putting on a man of the match performance in the final.
If anyone can counter the threat which Amarjeeth offers, its Vihal from the Rhinos. He has the ability to curtail PNP and he’s another player who could emerge as the standout performer from this encounter.
Raiders for BR vs PNP Dream 11
Just the one raider each from either side given how close we expect this final to be pushed. Venkadesh is our pick from Pune Pride while from Bangalore Rhinos Arumugam is going to wrap up our side one for the concluding match of the IIPKL 1.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The culminating time we are going to select two extremely important roles and both the all-rounders will represent us. Amarjeeth Singh from Pune Pride is our captain while Vishal is the vice-captain from Bangalore Rhinos.
