PKL Season 6: Patna to face fierce competition from Bengal in their last home game
Today in Pro Kabaddi League one match will be held where Patna Pirates will play their last match on their home ground in season 6. After a comfortable win over the Jaipur Pink Panthers, Patna Pirates have suffered four consecutive losses. Today being the last match on their home ground they will look to end their home leg on a winning note.
The defending champions and three times title holder Patna Pirates still have not found the ways to mark a comeback in the league. They started their home leg with a win over the Jaipur Pink Panthers. But after that, they lost four matches. In raiding, Manjeet and Deepak are supporting their skipper Pardeep. But defense is not in a great form and is messed up. They will have to make strong strategies to stop Bengal’s Maninder Singh and Mahesh Goud who are in excellent form.
Bengal Warriors have won three matches out of five they have played in this season. One was drawn and another one they lost. But their team combination looks great and balanced. Maninder Singh is the dependable raider of the team. Along with him South Korean Jang Kun Lee and Mahesh Goud make a good raiding unit. Defense of their skipper Surjeet Singh and Ran Singh is capable to put down any opposition raider.
Head To Head
12 matches have been played between these two teams. Patna Pirates has won seven matches and Bengal Warriors has won two matches, whereas three matches ended up in a tie.
Pardeep Narwal VS Surjeet Singh
Patna Pirates skipper Pardeep has looked out of form in previous two games. But Bengal Warriors defense will not underestimate him as he is capable of making a strong comeback. Left raider Pardeep will face Bengal skipper and right cover Surjeet Singh. This raider-defender and more than that the captain’s rivalry will be interesting.
Manjeet, Patna Pirates
In yesterday’s match, Manjeet scored a Super 10. He has scored 41 raid points from 9 matches and is giving much-needed support to Pardeep Narwal. Today also Patna fans will be expecting the same from him.
Maninder Singh, Bengal Warriors
Maninder Singh is the most successful raider for the Warriors. He has picked up 49 raid points from 5 matches. He will be the key player for Bengal Warriors today.
