In Match 36 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, defending champions Bengaluru Bulls will take on Haryana Steelers at the Eka arena in Ahmedabad on Sunday. Bengaluru Bulls’ defence has been inconsistent to say the least in PKL 2019, but they have excelled when it comes to Super Tackles. They are the top team when it comes to Super Tackles with 14 as a team. Mahender Singh is also the defender with the most Super Tackles. On the other hand, Haryana started with Ravi Kumar in their defence for the first time in their previous encounter. He had only made substitute appearances in the earlier matches. He played in the left cover position in place of Parveen, but rather interestingly he picked up all 4 of his tackle points from the left corner position.

Will Bulls continue to use Pawan Sehrawat in the right cover position?
Bengaluru Bulls have reshuffled their defence as they have tried to find a solution for the right cover position and played their star raider Pawan Sehrawat in that role. In the game against Bengal Warriors, Maninder targeted Pawan early and then Bengaluru were forced to change. But in the game against Telugu Titans, Pawan played very well and picked up 4 tackle points as well along with his raid points.
In the last game, Bulls went with Saurabh Nandal at right corner, Vijay Kumar in the right in position and Pawan Sehrawat in the right cover position. This is something that coach Randhir Singh Sehrawat has tried last season as well, but it is a huge risk. Will be interesting to see whether they continue this ploy against Haryana Steelers.
