Patna Pirates are peaking at the right phase of the league as they are at the 4th position in the points table with 16 points. They have lost just one match till now. It was evident at the start of the league that Monu Goyat would be their star raider, but the Pirates have created a wonderful raiding illusion where Monu gets tackled, but Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai wreck havoc in the opposition defence and that has been the hallmark of the Pirates.
Telegu Titans have been struggling since day one, not able to get their combinations right as well as not able to see Bahubali Siddharth Desai unleash his deadly Super raids. They haven't yet tasted success in the 4 matches that they have played, though they managed to earn 2 "Tie" results against stronger sides. With Siddharth Desai not fully fit, Rohit Kumar will have to revisit his classy days to guide the young brigade through these difficult times. Winning matches is the only magic potion that can revive them.
But the Titans will take on a strong Pirate squad, which will be difficult to conquer.
The only team with very interesting and dubious distinctions in this tournament-
No match won yet in 4 games.
2 tie results.
Bahubali not fully fit.
What can a team do in such a situation? Fight back. Titans are capable of this. Rohit Kumar did show his class in the last game against the Bulls where managed to rally his men. They were able to neutralize Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat for almost 25 minutes in the game and this is what the doctor has ordered for them.
Raider Ankit Beniwal looks super fit and has adjusted himself as the spearhead. His right foot slaps are devastating for the left corner defenders. His scored a Super 10 in his last match. Rakesh Gowda has emerged as a decent side kick earning good raiding points.
The other motivating factor for the Titans is that defenders Surinder and Sandeep Kandola have started to work better with precise tackles.
The Titans are successfully tackling at 9.25 points per match which they need to improve. They have 5 Super raids to their name, but they need to compliment this with more Super Tackles and High 5's too. Overall they are on a comeback trail but beating the Pirates will need an out of the box effort.
One of the most exciting and entertaining teams of the season, The Pirates have enthralled everyone with amazing kabaddi skills and team work. They have all their components performing well which has helped them to achieve the 4th spot in the points table.
Some interesting facts-
47 successful team tackles.
Highest number of Super Tackles-6
5 all outs inflicted.
They executed 29 Super tackles, 14 Super raids last season as well as collected 447 team raid points.
This shows that they are working well in their raiding as well as their defence.
The trio of raiders Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai look unstoppable. They earned 27 points together in the last match against Bengal Warriors.
Their defenders look busy and spot on. Left corner Mohammedreza is animated, defenders Neeraj Kumar, Sajin and right corner Sunil are precise in their timing. All seems to be going well for the Pirates as they take on the off colour Titans in their next match.
Patna Pirates fought tooth and nail to earn their victory against Steelers in their first match. Hence they have been tested. They seem to perform better under pressure. The last 2 matches have got them in the winning rhythm with good performances in all departments. Their trio of raiders is stingy, their defence has got the measure of most of the opposition raiders. This looks like a cake walk for them.
Telegu Titans have walked the tight rope till now in this season, no victories but 2 hard earned “Tie” results. They will take inspiration from their performance against the strong Bulls whom they were able to slow down and force a tie. If their defence can isolate Monu Goyat and Sachin Tanwar, Titans stand a fighting chance. This will be an entertaining encounter which will test the mental strength of the Titans.
Pirates will beat the Titans.
