With their third victory in a row, Bengaluru Bulls climbed to third place in the PKL 2019 points table with just a point behind league leaders Dabang Delhi
Patna: Bengaluru Bulls on Thursday (August 8) posted their third straight win, defeating Telugu Titans 47-26 in a Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 7 match here at the Patliputra Indoor Stadium.
A sensational all-round display by Pawan Sehrawat and a brilliant performance from the defence steered Bulls to a comfortable victory.
Sehrawat scored 17 points against Titans. Bulls' defence managed six Super Tackles against their rivals.
After Armaan scored the first Super Raid of the night, Titans responded forcefully, but three straight successful raids by Bulls negated the effort which led the team to 21-14.
The second half began by Titans' defence in which Rohit Kumar was pinned down. Soon after, Bulls' defence made no mistake in tackling the raider and inflicting a second All-Out on Titans.
Though Titans managed to reduce Bulls down to just three men, a spell of four Super-Tackles in four minutes by the Bulls' defence not only kept the All-Out at bay but also increased their team's lead to 20 with under three minutes, which confirmed a third straight win for Bulls.
With this win, Bulls climbed to third place in the points table, just a point behind league-leaders Dabang Delhi.
