Match 1 – Bengal Warriors vs Tamil Thalaivas
Title-holders Bengal Warriors will be looking to get their campaign back on track when they meet the excited Tamil Thalaivas in the first innings on Thursday night. After a great start to their campaign with a back-to-back win, the Warriors are in recession, having won only once in the last six games so far. They are currently tenth in the PKL 2021-22 points table, having scored just 17 points from eight matches. The Bengal team will be looking forward to ending their disappointing streak, however, it has become more difficult as the fourth-ranked Thalaivas, who are unbeaten in the last six games. The team led by Surjit Singh has tied four times in their eight matches so far, won three times and lost once. When they meet the struggling ruling champion they will try to add more to their winning column and move up in the points table.
