Pro Kabaddi Season 7
Rohit Kumar and co. are likely to showcase a similar performance this season. We look into their predicted starting seven for the Bulls as they get ready to face the three-time-winners Patna Pirates in their first match of the league.
Predicted Starting Seven for Bengaluru Bulls
#1. Pawan Sehrawat (Center)
Star of Pro Kabaddi League Season 6, Pawan Sehrawat showcased stellar performances, helping his side clinch the league for the first time in the history of Pro Kabaddi. The Bengaluru raider finished as the leading point scorer in Pro Kabaddi Season 6, accumulating as many as 282 points in 24 matches.
One of the few players who has the ability to consistently pick super raids, Pawan Sehrawat boasts of collecting an overall tally of 356 points in 56 matches he has played so far in the league.
He will once again be one of the biggest bets for the bulls in the upcoming season.
#2. Rohit Kumar (Left In)
The captain of Bengaluru Bulls, Rohit Kumar led his team to win their first title in Pro Kabaddi League Season 6.
Known for his ability to stay calm under pressure, Rohit has established himself as one of the best raiders in the sport. The Bulls captain announced his arrival only in his debut season where he scored as many as 109 for Patna Pirates.
#3. Mahender Singh (Left Cover)
Making his debut in Pro Kabaddi Season 5 for Bengaluru Bulls, Mahender Singh has been able to cement his position in the side as one of the most potent defenders in the side. Mahender played as many as 24 matches last season, accumulating 63 tackle points, including 6 high 5s.
#4. Raju Lal Choudhary (Right Corner)
Having played for Jaipur Pink Panther in the first three seasons, and Haryana Steelers in the fourth, Bengaluru Bulls bought the services of Raju Lal Choudhary in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 6.
Raju Lal Choudhary did a considerable job at the right corner, however, there is still a lot of room for improvement for Choudhary. Bengaluru though has added Vijay Kumar in their squad as a substitute for Raju, and the latter may also get a nod to start, in Pro Kabaddi Season 7.
#5. Ashish Sangwan (Right Cover)
Started as a defender, Ashish Sangwan honed his skills over time to become a reliable raider as well. The 25-year-old was the best defender for Bengaluru Bulls in Pro Kabaddi Season 3, scoring 25 tackle points in 13 games.
Ashish played 24 matches for the Bulls in Pro Kabaddi Season 6, earning as many as 45 points including 40 tackle points and five raid points.
#6. Sumit Singh (Right In)
Sumit Singh has been with the side since Pro Kabaddi Season 4, however, the raider didn’t get a lot of opportunities for the side in the league. Sumit has played a total of 17 matches, earning as many as 24 points for the franchise. He will look to add some good performances this season.
#7. Amit Sheoran (Left corner)
Defender Amit Sheoran made heads turn in Pro Kabaddi Season 6 with some of his breathtaking tackles. The Bengaluru Bulls defender played 15 matches in Pro Kabaddi Season 6, earning 38 points.
