Patna Pirates vs Puneri Paltan
Patliputra Sports Complex, Patna
2019 Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 – Match 26
Sunday, 4th August 2019; 8:30 PM IST.
The fourth match of the Patna leg of VIVO Pro Kabaddi Season 7 will see Patna Pirates host Puneri Paltan in a thrilling encounter at the Patliputra Sports Complex on Sunday. Both teams had pretty much different season since now, Patna Pirates enjoying a good start to their campaign whereas Puneri Paltan is coming after 3 back to back losses.
Patna Pirates lost their opening match of the season against reigning champions Bengaluru Bulls by a narrow margin, but have turned things around since, registering back-to-back wins. Patna Pirates’ talismanic raider ‘Record-Breaker’ Pardeep Narwal has been in good form, registering 18 raid points so far, including a Super 10. However, the most impressive facet about the Patna Pirates outfit has been their defence, in particular, Jaideep. The Left Corner has registered successive High 5s in Patna Pirates’ two wins and has been well-supported by the likes of Hadi Oshtorak and Neeraj Kumar. Youngster Monu, too, has come to the fore this season and his knack for picking up both raid and tackle points whenever the team requires them the most makes him a huge asset for the three-time champions.
Player To Watch Out For- Pardeep Narwal
Puneri Paltan has had a less than ideal start to their season and will be eager to beat Patna Pirates to register their first points of the campaign. Coach Anup Kumar’s side needs to pull up their socks and perform as a team. Pune raiders haven’t performed to their potential and that has been a major reason for their lacklustre performance. Captain Surjeet Singh has to ensure the defenders to learn from the mistakes they’ve committed to putting up a dominant show. The team will hope that Pawan Kadian and Pankaj Mohite, who impressed as a substitute against Bengal Warriors, can come good against a strong Patna Pirates defence.
Player To Watch Out For- Pawan Kadian
Probable Line Ups
Patna Pirates- Pardeep Narwal, Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsoudlou, Vikas Jaglan, Hadi Oshtorak, Neeraj Kumar, Jang Kun Lee and Jaideep.
Puneri Paltan- PO Surjeet Singh(C), Girish Maruti Ernak, Nitin Tomar/ Darshan Kadian, Manjeet, Pawan Kumar Kadian, Jadhav Shahaji and Shubham Shinde.
