PKL 2023-24: The Bengal Warriors asserted their dominance through most of the game, yet the Bengaluru Bulls rallied fiercely in the final minutes, narrowing the contest. Ultimately, the Warriors claimed victory with a tight 32-30 scoreline at the EKA Arena by TransStadia. Maninder Singh’s impressive 11-point performance in this PKL season set the momentum for the Warriors.
Maninder initiated the game with a powerful raid, securing both a bonus and a touch point to kickstart Bengal’s scoreboard. In a highly anticipated clash of top raiders, he firmly established his prowess.
However, at the opposite end, Bharat faced an early tackle on his initial raid, signaling a challenging game ahead for him. It took the Bengaluru Bulls over four minutes and numerous raids before they could register their first point via a crucial DO OR DIE raid by Aditya Shinde.
While the Warriors consistently added points, maintaining a lead, a game-changing SUPER RAID by Neeraj Narwal shifted the dynamics, transforming the match into a closely contested battle. At halftime, the Warriors held a narrow 14-11 advantage.
Entering the second half, the Warriors surged further ahead, with Maninder Singh orchestrating an ALL OUT, establishing an eight-point lead at 23-15.
