A contest between an inconsistent team and another that has nothing to lose is always mouthwatering. Patna Pirates haven’t ruled the mat like the Pirates of the Caribbean. They have displayed a mix of performances that have been contrasting.

Everyone is fond of Tamil Thalaiva this season as they have overcome big obstacles to give decent fighting performances. Without Pawan Sehrawat they have been courageous and united.

Patna Pirates got thrashed by U Mumba in their last game while the Tamil Thalaiva went down fighting to the Bulls. After playing 13 games each, both teams are now desperate to win each game from here in order to keep their hopes alive for the playoff.

Patna Pirates ' match-winning streak was disturbed by U Mumba while the Thalaiva lost back-to-back games. Both teams will be aggressive as they start the game. Both teams are vulnerable and guilty of losing steam in the second half. Expect a high-scoring game with lots of unforced errors and comic tackles.

Patna Pirates Preview

The Patna Pirates have had an indifferent season this time. They haven’t been in control of themselves on the mat. The Pirates took 5 games to register their first win of the season. Post those victories they looked unbeatable. But a long season is taking a toll on them as they lost to U Mumba by a huge margin. They are placed 6th in the points table and need to win every game from here.

They take on the Tamil Thalaiva who beat them early in the season. The Pirates lost to Mumba as they were completely constricted by the Mumba defense. This affected their raid earnings and Patna lost the match. This is a major weakness of the Pirates that has been exposed. The Patna Pirates are totally dependent on raiders Sachin Tanwar and Rohit Gulia. They don’t have much of a backup in this department.

The Pirates have executed 189 successful team raids out of their total 553 team raids.

Raiders Sachin Tanwar and Rohit Gulia have earned 202 raid points in 13 games.

Defenders Sunil and Mohammedreza have executed 67 successful tackles together.

But the other defenders have not been able to contribute significantly. The Pirates will play Dabang Delhi after this game and their road to the playoff gets challenging. They lost their last game to the Thalaiva by a solitary point. Even in that game they could not earn a lot of raid points and got trapped.

The Pirates have earned 72 Do-or-Die raid points which is the highest among all teams. This proves that the Pirates rely too much on empty raids and gamble on the DoD. 

They have inflicted 18 all-outs in 13 matches while conceding 17. This gets them back to square one. The Pirates will have to keep themselves charged for the remainder of the season. They are placed 6th and hence cannot afford to lose momentum. The Thalaiva is a tricky opponent who can surprise you with their teamwork. Hence the Pirates need to be careful and aggressive in a calculated manner.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

The Tamil Thalaiva has been impressive and inspiring. Without Pawan Sehrawat they have displayed grit, courage, and character. Though they are currently placed 10th in the points table, they have commanded respect from their opponents. They have competed with the best and made their opponents work hard.  

After a winning spree, the Thalaiva seems to have hit a speed breaker. They lost back-to-back games which have pushed them downwards in the points table. They lost to the Puneri Paltan and then to the Bengaluru Bulls. Both matches went down the wire where the Thalaiva pushed their opponents to the limit.

The Thalaiva should have won the game against the Paltan as they were tactically superior. They dried off the raid earnings of the Paltan and almost completed the heist before losing the match in the last raid. Similarly, they played well against the Bengaluru Bulls in their next game which they lost by a margin of 6 points.

The Thalaiva has some inspirational and talented youngsters. Raider Narender has earned 134 raid points in his 107 successful raids. 

Captain Sagar has scored 32 successful tackles in 13 games while defenders Sahil Gulia and M Abhisek have executed 54 successful tackles within them.

This makes the Thalaiva a dangerous squad. Unfortunately, they miss someone who can deliver the knock-out punch. 

The Thalaiva has executed 12 Super tackles as a team along with 7 Super raids. 

Unfortunately, they have conceded 21 all-outs in 13 games while inflicting just 14. This has been the dark spot for them this season. If Thalaiva can improve on this number, they can beat the best in the business. They had beaten the Patan Pirates in a close match very early in the season and would like to repeat the feat.

This win will give the Thalaiva a cryogenic boost for the remainder of the season.

Welcome to the last few games at the Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi, Pune. The caravan will move to Hyderabad. But the Thalaiva has a wonderful opportunity to win a game here. 

Raider Narender will once again score a Super 10 to keep the hopes alive for the Thalaiva. They will dominate the first half with Captain Sagar targeting either Patna raider Sachin or Rohit Gulia. The Tamil defense will be stingy and they will trouble the Pirates. This will help the Thalaiva dominate the proceedings.

The Patna Pirates will depend on Sachin Tanwar to score big. He will earn but not a very big Super 10. Defenders Sunil Kumar and Mohammedreza will trap Tamil raider Narender but they won’t be able to stop him from a Super 10. 

This will be a contest between who will score the least unforced errors. Tamil Thalaiva will have to maintain their intensity throughout the match else the Pirates will loot them and take the match away right under their nose.

Tamil Thalaiva will win.
