Bengal will look to recover from last match debacle

Despite being one of the best raiding units in the league, they had a bit of a down game in their previous match where they lost to UP Yoddha. Both Maninder and Prapanjan scored less than 5 raid points. Mohammad Nabibakhsh was their best raider with 6 raid points. But this performance was an outlier. The match against UP was the first time this season that both Prapanjan and Maninder finished the match with less than 5 raid points, showing their consistency.
