Good evening everyone..
Welcome to the Live coverage of the grand final between defending champions Patna Pirates and season 1 winners Jaipur Pink Panthers at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium, Hyderabad in the ongoing Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League season 4.
The Patna-based franchise defeated Puneri Paltan 39-34 in the first of semi-finals which proved to be a thrilling contest between the two powerhouses of Pro Kabaddi. Their Star raider Pardeep Narwal has been sensational this season with scoring a mammoth total of 115 raid points(2nd highest in the league) so far, just shy of Rahul Chaudhari’s 128 mark. The latest addition to the squad, Fazel Atrachali has taken the kabaddi world by storm with his blistering performances for his new franchise this season, even combined superbly with his Iranian teammate Hadi Oshtorak against the Pune-based franchise in the semi-finals to take the defending champions to into their 2nd consecutive final!
On the other hand, Jaipur Pink Panthers overcame a difficult challenge against the hosts Telugu Titans to win their semi-final tie and qualify for their 2nd final in 4 seasons. The 22-year old, Amit Hooda has been the find of this season 4 and currently lies on the top of the table of defenders with the highest number of successful tackles (44) this season, tied with Patna Pirates’ Fazel Atrachali and Bulls’ Mohit Chhillar. Their star raider Jasvir Singh has led the side from the front, with his unusual tricks and tactics helping the Panthers to finish at 3rd place in the final league standings and once again, there would be a lot of pressure on the raider to help his side to cross the final hurdle!
The two sides have met each other on 9 occasions in the PKL history with the Pirates just edging the head to head count with 5 victories as compared to the Panthers’ 4.
Players to watch out for:
Patna Pirates: Pardeep Narwal, Fazel Atrachali
Jaipur Pink Panthers: Ajay Kumar, Amit Hooda
Head to Head
Played – 9, Patna Pirates – 5, Jaipur Pink Panthers – 4, Draw – 0
Patna Pirates – Won 39-34 against Puneri Paltan (SF-1)
Jaipur Pink Panthers – Won 34-24 against Telugu Titans (SF-2)
Patna Pirates: Star Raider, Pardeep Narwal will hold the key for Patna tonight in the final match against Jaipur. If he finds his touch early in the game then, it will be hard to stop him. Pardeep will face Jaipur's mainstay in defense, Amit Hooda who was on fire against Telugu Titans in the semi-final clash. Another man to watch out in raiding is Rajesh Mondal who usually raids in 'Do-or-Die' situations, literally, he has got the license to wipe out the opposition.
Jaipur Pink Panthers: Jasvir Singh was the chief destructor for Jaipur in the semi-final match against Telugu Titans. Tonight he will need support from Ajay and Rajesh to get the challenge of Fazel Atrachali and Cheralathan. Right raider, Ajay Kumar has been their find of this season. Jaipur is using him in the 'Do-or-Die' raids and tonight he has to face Bajirao Hodage and Fazel Atrachali. Their latest addition to the squad, Shabeer Bapu will also help in controlling the pace of the game.
