Matches: 15 | Jaipur: 7 | Bengaluru: 7 | Tie: 1
Bengaluru Bulls started the season with two wins in the first two games but fell short in the next two games, squaring it with two wins and two losses in the first four games. Bulls changed the approach and turned the momentum on his side from then and won three and drew one in the next four games before coming for this match.
After losing to UP Yoddhas in the league opener, Jaipur immediately turned things around and won five straight games until dropping the previous two contests to Puneri and Tamil Thalaivas, respectively.
The Panthers will be eager to get their season back on track after suffering back-to-back losses. They have won five matches and lost thrice in the ongoing campaign and need to return to winning ways soon. For that to happen, they will want their star raider Arjun Deshwal, who has scored 81 raid points this season, to be at his best. Deshwal though will need more help in attack from the likes of Rahul Chaudhari (26 raid points), V Ajith Kumar (22 raid points) and Bhavani Rajput (20 raid points). Defensively, Ankush (27 tackle points), Sunil Kumar (26 tackle points) and Sahul Kumar (14 tackle points) has been their most effective tacklers.
