The 2 best sides of the season clash as the race for the top position gets hotter match by match. The Bulls are in rampaging form as they are disposing off every team that comes their way. Hi flyer Pawan Sehrawat is the top raider of the season with 141 points from 115 successful raids. He is getting hungrier with every match. Most raiders would dream of earning a Super 10, but Pawan is looting over 20 points every match. Even if the other raiders fail, he is enough to earn points for his team.

The Pirates were looking good until their last game when they could not maintain the intensity of the game. Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai for a deadly trio but they succeed if they maintain a good pace in both halves of the match. Their defence crumbled under pressure against the Pink Panthers and they cannot afford another mishit when they take on the Bulls. They will need to isolate Pawan very early in the match so as to tame the Bulls.

Patna Pirates Preview

The Pirates have gone hunting this season and have emerged as the number 2 side of the tournament. They have played 9 games and have accumulated 34 points to take them to the 2nd position in the points table. They have had their moments of despair but the most significant aspect is that all their players are in the groove.

The trio of Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai have accumulated 163 points in 9 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.

They have earned 104 tackle points in 9 games which is second to the Bulls.

They have inflicted 10 all outs while conceding 7. Their success rate increases whenever they perform well in both raiding as well as their defence. They cannot afford to take the Bulls lightly even if Pawan Sehrawat has an off day.

Bengaluru Bulls Preview

The numero uno team of the season has been taken off in style. In the initial part of the season, many teams were able to get the better of Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat and keep him off the mat for log durations. But Pawan has learned his lessons and the Bulls are also exploiting other teams, like they plundered the Dabang Delhi side in the absence of Naveen Kumar. This is the hallmark of great teams and the Bulls are looking very strong in all aspects of the game.

Pawan Sehrawat is the top raider of the tournament with 141 raid points from 115 successful raids.

He has 7 Super 10's to his name with the highest of 27 points in one game.

The Bulls have the most number of successful tackles this season- 101.

They also have the highest team raid points of the season. They are the only team which has earned more points than conceded.

This makes them a very potent side difficult to beat. Apart from Pawan, raider Bharat and Chandran Ranjit have chipped in with important contributions.

Left corner Aman and Sourabh Nandal have been consistent in trapping any prey that comes in their zone. It will be a difficult proposition for the Pirates to tame the Bullls as they are on top of their game, especially in the last 2 matches.

The Bengaluru Bulls will continue to plunder the opposition as they have done in their last 2 games. With a long season, the defenders of opposite teams are also wearing out and this makes it easier for Pawan Sehrawat to raid and earn at will. The only way the Pirates can conduct this heist is to isolate Pawan very early and keep up the intensity of the game. The Bulls will not be able to keep up. The form of Sachin Tanwar will be very crucial for the Pirates as he is their “Jack Sparrow”. The Pirates can only survive if they play well in both raiding and defending.

Pawan Sehrawat looks in magical touch and he will be difficult to stop. The Bulls have an advantage as they enter the arena with back to back victories, while the Pirates have faced some roadblocks which has dented their confidence.

Bengaluru Bulls will win.
