The much awaited encounter between Patna Pirates and Jaipur Pink Panthers is just about to begin! Toss currently happening.
Patna Pirates won two games against U.P. Yoddha, scoring 43 points in both, before their loss to Telugu Titans. Skipper Pardeep Narwal has led the way for them scoring 46 points from 4 games. He has been ably supported by youngster Manjeet in the offence. Jaideep and Vijay have been brilliant in defence and will look to put in another good performance against Jaipur Pink Panthers. Patna Pirates will hope their offence and defence both work together as they seek to get back to winning ways and start their home leg on a high.
Jaipur Pink Panthers’ start to their season comprises of winning one and losing two games. But they will be buoyed by the fact that all-rounder Deepak Niwas Hooda is finding form at the right time. He was their top scorer in both offence and defence in the game against Puneri Paltan, managing a High 5. Corners Mohit Chhillar and Sandeep Dhull also put in good performances and Jaipur Pink Panthers will hope to see another defensive spectacle from the pair. Captain Anup Kumar is one point away from 500 raid points in VIVO Pro Kabaddi as he seeks to be the 6th player to the landmark.
