Patna Pirates are peaking at the right phase of the league as they are on top of the points table after 8 games. They have lost just one match till now. It was evident at the start of the league that Monu Goyat would be their star raider, but the Pirates have created a wonderful raiding illusion where Monu gets tackled, but Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai wreck havoc in the opposition defence and that has been the hallmark of the Pirates.

Jaipur Pink Panthers are currently 7th in the points table but they will be motivated and excited after winning their last 2 games. They beat a strong Dabang Delhi in their last encounter and this could be the revival of the Pink Panthers. Their resurgence is due to the emergence of raider Arjun Deshwal who has given them that X factor. Arjun is on the cusp of a century of raid points after 8 games as he has earned 99 points till now.

The form of defender Shaul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull is the major factor for the return of the Pink Panthers. Both have performed exceedingly well in the last 2 matches earning tackle points at will. This has complimented the efforts for their raiders.

This will be an exciting contest at the Pink Panthers will be tested against a strong Patna Pirates.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

Jaipur Pink Panthers have always been slow to take off but they play some exciting kabaddi and are a group of moody players. Currently things are going their way as they won their last 2 matches. Their performance against the Dabang Delhi side was very impressive as radier Arjun Deshwal and defenders Shaul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull were at their efficient best. They will need to carry this form when they take on the Patna Pirates.

Arjun Deshwal has impressed all with his 99 raid points in 80 successful raids.

Shaul Kumar is in the list of top 10 defenders this season with 22 tackle points from 7 games.

They have inflicted 8 all outs till now and have conceded 10.

In the initial phase of the league, the Pink Panthers were not able to set a successful template with a lot of dependency on Deepak Niwas Hooda. But Arjun Deshwal has been a breath of fresh air and has given good support in raiding to Deepak Niwas and Naveen.

Their defence will be tested against a strong Patna Pirates raiding party, particularly Sachin Tanwar. They will have to play similar to the way they tackled the Dabang Delhi side. If the Pink Panthers are able to handle the Pirates carefully, they will get the necessary boost in this league which might open the doors of the play off for them.

This will be a face-off between the trio of Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar, Prashanth Rai versus defenders Sandeep Dhull and Shaul Kumar.

Patna Pirates Preview

One of the most exciting and entertaining teams of the season, The Pirates have enthralled everyone with amazing kabaddi skills and team work. They have all their components performing well which has helped them top of the charts.

They have used their resources very intelligently as they realize that this is a long season. They have used Monu Goyat very efficiently while Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai have provided good raiding support. Also the emergence of all rounder Mohammedreza as a reliable left corner has helped their cause.

He has executed 23 successful tackles including 2 High 5’s.

The Pirates have put in the maximum number of raids as well as the highest team successful tackles.

They also have the highest team Super tackles- 13 and have already reached a century of tackle points which is also the highest among all the teams.

This gives them the deadly edge whenever they enter the mat.

They have inflicted 10 all outs while conceding the lowest in the season-5.

They have started playing like champions and it will be very difficult for the Pink Panthers to topple them.

Patna Pirates fought tooth and nail to earn their victory against Steelers in their first match. Hence they have been tested. Post that victory they have not looked back and have been able to tackle any opposition. They are table toppers at the moment and look very strong in their strategies. The team management has kept injuries under control and have used their resources intelligently.

Jaipur Pink Panthers have suddenly found their mojo and are looking dangerous. Their defence is working well with Shaul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull in full flow. If they can handle 2 of the 3 raiders from the Pirates camp, they will give enough fire power to their top raider Arjun Deshwal to attack the Pirates.

This will be a high intensity and entertainment heavy match.

Patna Pirates will win.
