We are ready to go here for the final game of the Patna leg of Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 and the teams will be out soon. Dabang Delhi have restored normal proceedings to lose another game and this time it is the Telugu Titans who have condemned them to a defeat. The team from the country’s capital looked quite off colour. But now it is time to focus on the next game here.
Hello and welcome to the live coverage of this Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 game between Patna Pirates and Jaipur Pink Panthers from the Patliputra Sports Complex in Patna. Tonight is the last day of the Patna leg of Pro Kabaddi 4 and this is the final match. The defending champions will be look to get back to winning ways after they were stunned last night by Dabang Delhi in an encounter that could well be dubbed as the “greatest upset in Pro Kabaddi history.”
The defeat was shocking to everyone including the fans in Patna, the Pirates and anyone who thought that the home team would simply turn up on the night and walk over Dabang Delhi. Not only were Patna Pirates outplayed in the match by Delhi, they had absoutely no clue about what was happening on the night as they were outclassed in all departments, be it defence or attack.
Patna Pirates’ destroyer-in-chief, Pardeep Narwal, was awfully quiet on the night and completely owned by Sachin Shingade, who was on another level. Pardeep’s silence on the mat seemed to rub on to other playes as his partner Rajesh Mondal and captain Dharmaraj Cheralathan seemed to switch off as well. However, it would be wrong to start drawing conclusions and Patna would like to forget that match as one bad day.
They will be up against a Jaipur Pink Panthers side that is going into the match with a chance of toppling Puneri Paltan at the top of the Pro Kabaddi 4 points table. Jaipur Pink Panthers have 20 points from 6 games and a healthy score difference of plus 25. The Abhishek Bachchan-owned franchise has played exceptional kabaddi in this tournament and are easily one of the top contenders to win the trophy.
The Pink Panthers have a solid team with a lot of players looking in good nick, including and especially their captain fantastic Jasvir Singh and Rajesh Narwal, who have effected 24 successful raids in this season so far. Shabeer Bapu has been a revelation for them this season after he was purchased in the auction and his transition from Mumbai to Jaipur has been quite smooth.
Even Patna seem to be the form team in the tournament, Jaipur can draw level with them on points if they win tonight’s encounter. These two teams have played each other 7 times in the past and Patna Pirates have the upper hand with five wins. There are certain key battles within this gigantic battle that are likely to decide the outcome of the game. For starters, whether or not the Jaipur defence is able to bring down Pardeep Narwal and Rajesh Mondal will be interesting to see.
On the other hand, the high flying Jasvir Singh and the ever probing Rajesh Narwal could be a handful for Dharmaraj Cheralathan and co. Fazel Atrachali, who was off the mark last night, would need to step up if Patna are to beat Jaipur tonigt. Moreover, the Pirates will be looking to end their home leg with a win and consolidate their position at the top of the table.
