Season-Wise Performance of Bengaluru Bulls:
The Bengaluru Bulls had a mixed bag of success throughout their seasons in the Pro Kabaddi League.
|Season 5||4th (B Zone)|
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 1
During the first season, the team displayed a promising start, but unfortunately only managed to secure fourth place in the PKL.
Despite having a great squad, they fell short of expectations and were unable to cross the finish line during playoffs. The team seemed to struggle as the season progressed, despite starting off with a bang.
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 2
Come the second season, however, the Bulls managed to improve their placement by two spots and clinched second place.
This was all thanks to star player Ajay Thakur who finished third as the highest raider. Dharmaraj Chelarathan and Manjeet Chillar also had an outstanding performance that powered Bengaluru toward the final match.
Despite playing exceedingly well throughout the tournament, they were unable to emerge victorious in a tough defeat against U-Mumba in the final round.
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 3
The Bulls' third season was a disappointment as they failed to meet expectations following their near-perfect 2nd season. They ended up finishing in the 7th spot on the points table, managing only 14 points in the 14 games played.
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 4
In the subsequent season, they fell short yet again, finishing in 6th place and failing to qualify for the knockouts due to poor on-field decisions resulting in an early exit.
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 5
Season five of the PKL witnessed the division of teams into two groups based on geographical locations. Bengaluru was placed in Zone B and finished fourth in their group, ultimately missing out on the knockout stage.
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 6
However, the Bulls experienced a remarkable turnaround in season six. Once again, teams were segregated according to their geographical regions, and Bengaluru emerged as the leader of Zone B.
This impressive performance allowed them to qualify for the playoffs, where they defeated Gujarat Giants in a thrilling final to clinch their first-ever championship title.
The star player of this victorious campaign was undoubtedly Pawan Sherawat who amassed an impressive number of raid points throughout the season.
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 7
During the seventh season of the Pro Kabaddi League, Bengaluru managed to secure the 6th spot in the points table. Despite qualifying for the eliminators, they were unable to advance further in the tournament.
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 8
However, this season seems promising for the Bengaluru Bulls as they currently hold a strong position in 3rd place in the points table.
With a formidable team and all the necessary qualifications, they have a high chance of claiming victory in this tournament
Bengaluru Bulls Team: Season 9
In the 9th season of the KPL Bengaluru manage to set 3rd place in the points table. In contrast to their previous performance where they finished 5th and failed to win crucial matches during eliminators, this season seems like a fresh start for them.
The 9th edition of Vivo PKL in Bengaluru saw the Bulls start off with a bang. Playing in front of their home crowd, they remained unbeaten in five out of seven matches.
The second leg saw them continue their winning streak, securing five more victories after some nail-biting contests in Pune.
Their strategy of putting pressure on opponents helped them maintain a position among the top three teams in the standings.
Although they appeared sluggish during the final leg in Hyderabad, they managed to finish third at the end of the league stage.
The Bulls were dominant in winning the Eliminator but faced a crushing defeat in the Semi-final, marking an early exit from the tournament.
