Catch the Live score and updates from the Pro Kabaddi 2018 match between Bengal Warriors and UP Yoddha
Preview: The final game of the league stages of Pro Kabaddi Season 6 sees Bengal Warriors host UP Yoddha at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium on Thursday. Patna Pirates’ defeat last night means a win against Bengal Warriors will send UP Yoddha through to the Playoffs. Bengal Warriors, on the other hand, stand a chance to end the league as Zone B leaders should they pull off a win, provided Bengaluru Bulls lose their fixture earlier in the evening.
Both Bengal Warriors and UP Yoddha’s encounters this campaign have finished in ties, making this a tie-breaker between the two zonal rivals.
Following his 16-raid point performance against Bengaluru Bulls last night, Bengal Warriors’ Maninder Singh surpassed his previous highest tally of 190 in a Pro Kabaddi season, leaving him just 4 raid points shy of his first ever campaign with 200 raid points. Maninder has been soul of the Bengal Warriors’ offence and has scored over a 100 raid points more than the next best raider in the roster. During Bengal Warriors’ home leg, Maninder has notched up 55 raid points in five fixtures at an average of 11.00, which is better than what he has managed this campaign.
UP Yoddha’s Nitesh Kumar has arguably been the best Right Corner defender in Pro Kabaddi Season 6 and is currently involved in a three-man battle for the Best Defender Award with Parvesh Bhainswal and Fazel Atrachali. His average of 3.67 tackle points ranks second in the league while his tally of seven Super Tackles is bettered by only two other defenders. His 44 tackle assists are also the second most by a UP Yoddha player this campaign, showcasing his all-round contribution to the team’s defence.
Kumar has guarded the right side of UP Yoddha’s defence with authority this campaign while Maninder has been the driving force for his team in offence. In their seven career duels so far, Maninder has gotten the better of Nitesh on five occasions while the Right Corner has tackled the prolific raider twice in his career. The outcome of the matchup between these two outstanding performers will likely be a huge factor in deciding the result of this fixture.

IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs CSK Match, Full Cricket Score: Dhawan's maiden ton powers Delhi to five-wicket win over Chennai
Jadeja, and not Dwayne Bravo’s bowling the final over, and he starts off with a wide. Dhawan then collects two off the first legal delivery as he guides the ball towards the leg side. Axar Patel, however, reminds every just how useful he is with the bat in hand as he smashes Jadeja out of the park, collecting three sixes off four deliveries — to finish the game by himself as Delhi Capitals collect their seventh win of the campaign with five wickets and a delivery to spare! For Chennai, they’re condemned to their sixth defeat in nine games, and by now the prospect of making it to the playoffs looks very difficult indeed for MS Dhoni and Co!
IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs RR Match, Full Cricket Score: Delhi beat Rajasthan by 13 runs, collect two more points
Delhi Capitals go on topWell, this has been a death bowling masterclass from both teams, but it is the Delhi Capitals who have won this. It was closer than the 13-run margin that the scorecard suggests. DC, by virtue of their sixth win in eight games, are at the top of the points table. DC will be mighty impressed with the extreme pace of Nortje who clocked 155 kmph quite easily and regularly. With Rabada, Ashwin and Axar rounding off their bowling, they look a really difficult team to beat. Shikhar Dhawan's 33-ball 57 was immensely vital as well as it set the platform for Shreyas Iyer, who scored a half century himself. There was no death-over flourish from either team this time though as bowlers came to the party. That's it from us tonight, but do join us for the coverage of RCB vs KXIP tomorrow. Till then, it's a wrap on Firstpost. Stay safe, good night.
