The mat is set on fire whenever these two sides clash. The Patna Pirates have forgotten what it is to lose while the Bengaluru Bulls have been struggling to win. The Patna Pirates continue to dominate as they have won their last 6 games. The Bulls have been working hard but they were upset by the Gujarat Fortune Giants. The Bulls were forced to settle for a TIE against Dabang Delhi too. Last week has been tumultuous for the Bulls who need to get back in shape for the knock-outs. Their struggle has brought them to a situation where they might just miss the bus for the next stage. Currently placed 5th in the points table, the Bulls have 2 more games to consolidate their position else they will be dependent on results of the other teams. They would not be looking for charity after playing so well throughout the season. The Patna Pirates have found their mojo and they are winning as they stick to their basics. Their raiders and defenders are resonating as they look far ahead of all other teams. This is going to the match of the week, special, entertaining and nerve wracking!!!

Patna Pirates Preview

The Pirates have gone hunting this season and have emerged as the top side of the tournament. They have already qualified for the next stage and will look to get some match practice and success in their last few league games.

The trio of Ghuman Singh, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai have accumulated 306 points between them. But Monu Goyat has not been fully fit and could not play against the last few games. Overall the Pirates have got one of the most potent combinations on the floor and they look dangerous with every match. In times of adversity, they have displayed courage and unity. They just need to maintain the intensity throughout the match. Left Corner Mohemmedreza has been exceptional with his ankle holds, while right corner Sunil and Sajin have to be more consistent. 

In their last clash with the Bulls, the Pirates were able to keep Pawan off the mat for a significant duration and that helped them tame the Bulls by 7 points. They can repeat this performance as the Bulls have struggled in the last few games. They have been on a match winning spree since the start of this month and they would like to win their remaining league games too. They have created a huge gap between themselves and all the other teams. The Pirates have the highest successful team tackle record this season which has helped them hunt most of the opposition raiders. They have also inflicted the highest number of all-outs in the season which proves their hunting skills. They can’t get complacent at this stage of the tournament as they have set their sight on their 4th Pro Kabaddi title.

Bengaluru Bulls Preview

Former champions are on slippery ground as they have been pushed to the 5th spot in the points table. The Bulls looked invincible for most of the season and enjoyed their presence in the top 3 almost throughout the season. But with the change in season, their fortunes have also changed as they look a bit fatigued. They have won just 2 out of their last 5 games as they have not been able to maintain their intensity. Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat has been earning a steady raid income while raider Bharat has been exceptional in the supporting role. But their defence is looking a bit scratchy. They beat the Jaipur Pink Panthers in their last game but that was due to raiders Pawan and Bharat. Their defence could earn only 10 tackle points out of the 45 team points. The income from tackle has reduced significantly in the last few games and there has been a steady rise in unforced errors. They will have to be alert against the Pirates who look invincible at this stage. 

The Bulls did try defenders like Jaideep and Mohit Sehrawat but their regulars like left corner Aman, Saurav Nandal and Mahendra Singh will have to overcome the mental block in order to trap Sachin, Ghuman and Prashanth Rai.

The Bulls will be aware of the fact that Monu Goyat is not fully fit and this may work to their advantage. But Pawan and other raiders will have to be careful of the Pirate corners, Mohammedreza and Sunil who have been very aggressive and successful in their tackles. The Bulls will be definitely looking for payback as they had lost the last encounter with the Pirates. The Bulls are facing a DoD challenge as they take on the Pirates.

This encounter will be full of sensational moves, plundering tackles, feisty raids and high on emotions. The Bulls will be looking for revenge. Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat was caught off guard by the Pirate defence in the last game but this time he will seek redemption.  The Benguluru defence has been a bit inefficient in certain games and they can’t let their guard down against the Pirates. Saurav Nandal and Mahendra will have to perform their guardian duties consistently.

Patna Pirate raiders Sachin, Prashant and Ghuman have earned well but they have been shackled by the opponent defenders once in a while. The Pirates are on a dream run which they would like to continue till the finals. This match will see a fierce contest between the Pirate defenders and Pawan Sehrawat.

Ideally this match should be a TIE but the Bulls may just overrun the Pirates.

Patna Pirates will win.
