Just like Telugu Titans, Bengaluru Bulls too had a disappointing end to their home leg as they suffered a 24-29 loss against Tamil Thalaivas. Bulls had played their first home match against the same team and had registered a narrow 32-31 win. However, in this game, Bengaluru team was outplayed by Ajay Thakur and his men. Rohit Kumar, has been the key raider for bulls since season 4, and was once again the only player to score points with ease. Ajay Kumar, who was excellent against the Warriors, managed to score just one point from 10 raids. Meanwhile, for Thalaivas, it was an all-round show where youngster Prapanjan was their highest scorer with six points. Amit hooda and Pradap played supportive roles as Thalaivas registered their first win of PKL.
