Bengaluru Bulls rode raider Pawan Sehrawat's scintillating show to hand hosts Tamil Thalaivas their third defeat on the trot with a superlative 48-37 verdict in a one-sided Pro Kabaddi tie at the packed Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium here on Wednesday.
Going by the adage 'morning shows the day', Thakur was sent out of the mat in his first attempt as Bengaluru bagged the first point and set the tone of the match they dominated from start to finish.
Sehrawat took the mat by storm, garnering 17 points in the first essay itself.
Sehrawat scored five and three raid points in the 26th and fourth minute respectively.
The hosts were all out towards the end of the first period to trail by 16 points at halftime.
The script did not change in the second half despite Thakur's incessant efforts as Bengaluru inflicted another all out soon after the restart.
Tamil Thalaivas managed to eke out an all out of their own too, but the gulf between the two teams was so much that there was only one winner at the end.
