Patna Pirates vs UP Yoddha
Patliputra Sports Complex, Patna
2019 Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 – Match 33
Friday, 9th August 2019; 8:30 PM IST.
Patna Pirates’ penultimate home leg fixture sees them host UP Yoddha at the Patliputra Indoor Stadium in Patna on Friday. The three-time champions are still in the hunt for the first win of their home leg, while UP Yoddha will be hoping for their second win in this season.
After back-to-back wins against Telugu Titans and Tamil Thalaivas, Patna Pirates had a difficult home leg until now, losing against Jaipur Pink Panthers, Puneri Paltan and Haryana Steelers. However, skipper Pardeep Narwal continued to remain the lynchpin of his side and scored 14 points in the last match against Steelers. In defense, Left Corner Jaideep has been in terrific form, averaging an impressive 3.16 tackle points per game so far this season. Given that UP Yoddha boasts of a potent and versatile raiding duo in Rishank Devadiga and Monu Goyat, Jaideep, as well as the rest of the defense, will have to be on their toes if they are to come out victorious against that side.
Player To Watch Out For- Pardeep Narwal
U.P. Yoddha will be targeting their second win of the campaign after a nerve-wracking tie denied them maximum points in their last match. Coach Jasveer Singh will be demanding more from his players, who, on their day are capable of playing any opposition off the mat. As far as their raiding unit goes, Shrikant Jadhav, Monu Goyat and Rishank Devadiga have proven their ability time and again in the past and will want to make their presence felt in the ongoing season as well. On the defensive front, captain Nitesh Kumar will be eager to lead by example and set the standards for the likes of Amit, Sumit, and Narender to follow.
Player To Watch Out For- Monu Goyat
