On the back of a mixed bag of results from the ongoing season, the Bengal Warriors will be keen on picking up the third win of their season when they face off against U Mumba in the 32nd match of the Pro Kabaddi League 2019 at the Patliputra Sports Complex in Patna.
Having started off their season with a massive win of 48-17 against the UP Yoddha, the Warriors then finished on the losing side of a thrilling game against the Jaipur Pink Panthers before they clinched a mammoth 43-23 win over the Puneri Paltan in their third game.
Moreover, a jaw-dropping 29 point effort from the Pawan stole a win from the Warriors, and as the tournament moves towards the middle stages, Maninder will even hope to lead his team to an important win.
Rohit and Abhishek have not made the best of impressions this season with just 35 points and 19 points from six matches, while on the defensive front, Surinder and Fazel will be even looking to make matters difficult for the warrior’s raiders.
