Fortune favors the brave and Puneri Paltan are a prime example of this proverb. Playing deep, testing the patience of the opposition, the Paltan pulled off a one point victory to break the hearts of Titan fans. The difference between these two sides was the youthful exuberance and the will to win.
Both these virtues were on display from the Patna Pirates who seemed to have staged a heist against the UP YOdh but fell short of ideas in the dying moments of the second half.
So it's a match between the heartbroken Pirates who would like to loot the Paltan big time.
Pune has some exiting talent in the form of Pankaj Mohite and Aslam Inamdar. Both of them are nimble footed with fire in their belly. These two collected 11 raid points while Super Star Rahul Chaudhari looked out of form.
Pirates look in good rhythm as Sachin Tanwar and Pranshanth Rai earned 18 raid points together. Another high point for them is the super fit left corner Iranian Mohammedreza who showed immense class in tackles.
Its going to be a tough match between teams in form.
A new look Puneri Paltan tried out new players and different combinations in the last match. Nitin Tomar, Pawan Kadian didn't get mat time, Rahul Chaudhary too was rested in most of the second half. It was all up to captain Vishal Bharadwaj to lead a young group hungry for success.
New kids on the block- Aslam Inamdar, Pankaj Mohite, acrobatic Mohit Goyat. With this line up, Paltan is a dangerous and lethal combo. Stingy in their raids and miserly in their defence. This could be the recipe for success for Puneri Paltan.
Puneri Paltan have invested in local talent this season, this young group is expected to display raw and powerful swag on the mat. They need to improve on bonus point collection as well as multi point raids.
This will help them reduce the score difference in the points table.

Young blood in the defence which could make it difficult for opposition raiders.
Right cover Abhinesh is precise with his timing and traps.
Very few teams have dominated the mat like the Pirates. But they were teary eyed when they lost the last match by just a point. They will need to revisit their strategy as the last point conceded by them was in the form of a bonus.
Good news for the Pirates, even if the opposition targets Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar has emerged as their new pirate along with captain Prashant Rai.
Another ray of hope is the performance of the super fit Iranian all rounder Mohammedrezza who tackled efficiently from the left corner in the last match. He along with defender Sajin and raider Sachin were able to steal a hat trick of super tackles against Pardeep Narwal in the last match.
Raiding is not a worry for the Pirates as much as consistency in their defence. They will have to work hard to keep Monu Goyat on the mat for most of the match.
Avoid unforced errors and stay alert till the last second of the game.
Monu Goyat completes 500 raid points with a Super 10 in the opening encounter.
They executed 29 Super tackles, 14 Super raids last season as well as collected 447 team raid points.
Have collected 78 Do or Die raid points in season 7..
Right Corner Sunil & defender Sajin for a great combination.
This will be a tricky contest for both the teams. Though Puneri Paltan will be happy with the emergence of new kids, they will be worried about the form and intensity of their premier raider Rahul Chaudhary. An on song Rahul is unbeatable. But the Paltan will be very excited and motivated by their performance against the Titans and will look to corner the Pirates.
Patna Pirates on the other hand are heart-broken and can be dangerous. Monu, Sachin, Prashanth Rai are in form, hence scoring off raids is not a problem. Their defence is also in place though a bit inconsistent.
The only issue is that they seem to be slightly tentative in the first 10-15 minutes of the game though their engines start running full throttle later on.
A tough, entertaining match awaits us.
