One can expect total entertainment whenever the double P’s clash. Puneri Paltan and Patna Pirates have characters we all love. Both teams have had contrasting journey’s in the season. Pirates have regained their top spot in the points table and they have peaked at the right time. The Puneri Paltan has overcome multiple issues and they have started winning off late. Though they are placed 11th in the points table they have played just 15 games and can spoil the party for other teams. They will be playing their first game after a 7 day break and they will feel refreshed and revitalized. Coach Anup Kumar has been working hard on various combinations which has helped them to win their last 4 games.
The Pirates have developed a wonderful formula in their raiding department as well as their defence. The trio of Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai is lethal and even in the absence of Monu Goyat, Ghuman Singh has stepped in.
Patna Pirates will be looking forward to wind up proceedings quickly. The Paltan has no other option than to keep fighting and expect that they win all their matches and ful-fill their dream of qualifying for the playoffs.
The Puneri Paltan was moving at snail’s pace earlier in the season. They were not able to catch up with the other teams as they are at the 11th spot in the points table after 51 games. After showing some promise by beating stronger teams like U Mumba and Bengal Warriors, the Paltan was once again gasping for victories. Coach Anup Kumar has re-energized the squad and the Paltan has won its last 4 games. They still have 7 games to play and if they win all their remaining games they will overtake a lot of teams in the points table.
There has been a major shift in their strategy for their defence. They used to leak a lot of points earlier in the season but now they have got some fresh defenders. Abhinesh, Sombir and Karamvir defended well against U Mumba in their last match. Earlier the Paltan was not able to earn raiding income but now they have the trio of veteran Nitin Tomar, Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat. This has given them buffer to compensate for any lapse in defence.
Though they have conceded a lot of points this season, they have improved their performance in the last 7-8 games. Puneri Paltan looks dangerous and they are on a giant killing spree. They were supposed to play the Pirates on 22nd January 2022 but that match had to be rescheduled due to Covid issues with the Pirates. The last time these two sides met, the Pirates won a low scoring game by 12 points. The Puneri Paltan was learning the nuances of life on the mat till then. This will be an entertaining match as both the teams have found their mojo. It will be a direct clash of the trident of raiders from both sides.
Former champions are on top of the kabaddi world as they sit comfortably on the 1st position in the points table after playing 17 games. They have revitalized and rebooted themselves after a short break. They have won their last 4 games beating the best of the teams. In the absence of star Monu Goyat, the trio of Sachin, Prashanth and Ghuman have done a phenomenal job.
They have amassed 93 raid points in the last 4 games. Apart from the healthy raiding harvest, the Pirates have rejuvenated their defence. Left corner Iranian looks like a romantic hero of a Bollywood flick but his ankle holds are deadly and lethal. He has executed 56 successful tackles and resonates well with right cover Neeraj Kumar. Defender Sajin has also been effective in blocks and aggressive advanced tackles.
The Pirates have developed a lethal combination of raiders and defenders which is proving to be too hot to handle. The Pirates have scored 632 points in 17 games while they have conceded only 539 points. This is the reason due to which they have remained the top 3 throughout the tournament. They have inflicted 27 all-outs which is the highest among all teams. They have the highest successful tackle percentage of 44.26 %
The Pirates have to be careful about that bad day at the office where their defence might just breakdown. Defenders Sunil Shinde and Sunil have been effective but they need to improve their consistency.
These virtues make them the favourites this season and they may just go on to add their 4th title of PKL. But they will be up against the Puneri Paltan who has changed the texture of their game. They have become more hostile and aggressive and the Pirates won’t find it easy to bulldoze the Paltan.
This will be the toughest match for the Puneri Paltan as they take on the inform Patna Pirates. Puneri Paltan will have to think out of the box in order to confuse the Pirates. This will be one of the most entertaining and a high scoring match as the Pirates will face a rejuvenated Paltan. The Pirate defence will have to be careful of the jumping jack Aslam Imandar along with veteran Nitin Tomar and Mohit Goyat.
This will be a face-off between Mohamedreza and Aslam Imandar,
