The Patna Pirates are the most successful team in Pro Kabaddi history having won the title three times already, The current champions are also starting to motor along in this tournament as well. They are being led by Pradeep Narwal, who has scored 41 points this season already.
Pardeep Narwal has solid support from Deepak Narwal on the scoring front and the two are going to test the strong Telugu Titans defense for sure. The strategy for the Patna Pirates will be very similar to what they followed against U.P. Yoddha where the defensive unit took no risks and avoided mistakes to contain the opponent raiders while the attack carved out space on the other side of the mat.
Jaideep, Vijay, and Kuldeep Singh are going to be crucial in keeping the Telugu Titans raiders quiet.
The Telugu Titans have put together a world-class defensive squad in this tournament which has been as fun to watch as any of the better raiding units. Players like Anuj Kumar, Fargad Rahimi Milaghardan, and Abozar Mohajemighani have combined power, precision, and speed to set up traps brilliantly for opponents.
Skipper Vishal Bhardwaj has also been very good on the defensive side for the Telugu Titans.
The Telugu Titans have allowed oppositions to score more than 30 points just once. They will be keen to rectify their shortcomings from the last match and get back to the style of kabaddi which has been working for them so far.
On the offensive side, the Telugu Titans will be hoping for some fire from Ankit Beniwal, Mohsen Maghsoudloujafari, and Rahul Chaudhary.
We have no doubt that this match is going to be decided in how Pradeep and Deepak Narwal are able to take on the Telugu Titans defense. Whichever side wins that exchange will win the match as well.
The head to head between these two teams has been absolutely even. After 12 games, both sides have won six each. This is quite telling considering the Patna Pirates have been excellent for the majority of Pro Kabaddi.
This encounter is going to be another very close one between the two sides.
The Patna Pirates have the better offense, the Telugu Titans have the better defense. Both sides have won the same number of games and have the same number of points. Current form for both sides is pretty even too.
This means the margin of winning or losing could be very thin. We are going to go with the Patna Pirates in this match because of the way Pro Kabaddi has been designed which gives the offense an advantage.
Back the Patna Pirates to win.
