Match Analysis

The Patna Pirates are losing form at just the wrong time in the competition. There are only three matches left to try and secure their place in the Super Playoffs of Pro Kabaddi 6 but losing three out of their last matches is not going to help.

The side has been dependent on Pardeep Narwal to score the bulk of the points and lead the side to victory. He has 199 raid points to his name and is third in the league on the list of top-raiders. If Pardeep narwal can re-ignite the form of the Patna Pirates then the defending champions should be able to make it past the Bulls.

One thing going for them is the experience of winning big matches in the PKL on previous occasions.

Jaideep is going to be the man in the spotlight as the Patna Pirates try to stop Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, Kashiling Adake, and Rohit Kumar from running amok. As the lead defender of the Patna Pirates, he must bring his A game to this crucial encounter.

The Bengaluru Bulls are an attacking side that is either brilliant to watch or frustrating to witness. The reason for their losses has been a poor defense that tends to crumble under pressure. Mistakes and errors from their own defenders have cost the Bengaluru Bulls a lot of points this season.

Still, now that they have secured their place in the Super Playoffs, the Bengaluru Bulls would like to win their remaining matches and go into the knockouts with superb form. They will also like to take this opportunity to get their defense right.

Pawan Kumar Sehrawat is going to be the man that we have our eyes on. As the second-best raider of the PKL, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat is sublime when in form. He uses his speed, agility, and technique to always be in the game.

With Rohit Kumar also in terrific form, the Bengaluru Bulls are not going to be short of attacking options.

Key stat

The Patna Pirates hold a massive 10-3 advantage over the Bengaluru Bulls in head to head encounters. They also have won the last game that they have played against the Bengaluru Bulls.

Verdict

This is not the Patna Pirates side of old that would walk over opponents and this is a greatly improved Bengaluru Bulls side. We don’t give too much thought to past history but more to present form.

In the current scenario, the Bengaluru Bulls should be able to win this match with ease.

Back the Bengaluru Bulls to win.
