Patna Pirates Team News
It was acts of defensive generosity of the Pirates that led to them failing to get all 5 points as they put in many unsuccessful tackles to gift points to the Titans' raiders. Pardeep was as usual brilliant with 17 raid points and Jang Kun Lee did a good job as well. Hadi Oshtorak did a decent job getting 5 tackle points and was smart in asking for reviews. The rest of the defence needs to improve though no changes are expected.
Predicted Starting 7: Pardeep Narwal (C), Jang Kun Lee, Monu, Neeraj Kumar, Jaideep, Hadi Oshtorak and Vikas Jaglan.
Haryana Steelers Team News
Despite Vinay's brilliance (14 raid points) in the raiding department, Haryana's defence gave away too many points on the night. Vikash Khandola had a decent game while Prashanth Kumar Rai had a bad night. In defence, Vikas Kale did well as both the corners failed on the night. Dharmaraj Cheralathan is expected to come back into the side replacing Kuldeep Singh.
Predicted Starting 7: Dharmaraj Cheralathan (C), Sunil, Vinay, Vikash Khandola, Prashanth Kumar Rai, Ravi Kumar and Vikas Kale.
Players to watch out for
Patna - Pardeep Narwal: It's a no-brainer, really. Pardeep has been at his best and has scored 123 raid points in the last 7 games. Expect him to continue his great run.
Haryana- Vikash Khandola: The lead raider of Haryana really troubled Patna when both these sides met earlier this season and is having a great campaign. He's likely to get a Super 10 with ease.
