PKL Season 6: Patna Pirates desperate for a win post three back to back losses
After losing three consecutive matches on their home ground, Patna Pirates will be looking to get back on winning ways today as they take on Bengaluru Bulls tonight. The defending champions Patna Pirates stans at the fourth position while Bengaluru Bulls is at the fifth position in the points table of Zone B. But Bulls have played only four matches and the Pirates have played eight matches.
Patna Pirates have lost three consecutive matches. Yesterday they got defeat at the hands of Telugu Titans by a huge margin of 20 points. Though Pardeep did not have a good match yesterday, he is been consistent with his performances. Vikas Jaglan and Manjeet have also given much-needed support to Pardeep Narwal. But their defense looked completely out of the form yesterday. Today, they will have to prove themselves as they will play against Bengaluru’s raiders like Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, Kashiling Adake, and Rohit Kumar.
Bengaluru Bulls have won three matches and have lost just one match till now. Their raiding department is very good with consistent performance from Pawan Kumar Sehrawat. He has become the prime raider of their team. Kashiling Adake and skipper Rohit Kumar are also an integral part of the team. Their defense has not shown impressive performance till now, but today they have a chance to improve and prove themselves as they will face Dubki King Pardeep Narwal.

Pardeep has scored 92 raid points from 8 matches till now. Whereas Mahender has 9 tackle points to his name from 4 matches. But this clash will be one of the deciding factors of the match result.
Vikas Jaglan, Patna Pirates
Yesterday against the strong defense of Telugu Titans, Patna’s ace Pardeep scored only 4 raid points. Vikas Jaglan managed to score 9 raid points. He fought alone but could not manage to turn the results in favor of his team. It will be interesting to see how Bulls defense will play against him.
Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, Bengaluru Bulls
