LIVE COMMENTARY: Patna Pirates vs UP Yoddha, 21 September 2017
Patna Pirates predicted line up
Pardeep Narwal (Raider)
The day Pardeep Narwal doesn't start a match, will be the day Patna Pirates will be tested to the limit. That day is not today.
Monu Goyat (Raider)
From secondary raider to game saver, match by match, Monu's confidence keeps growing and Patna will be delighted with his form.
Vishal Mane (Defender)
After a torrid few games, the cover defender has made some amends and looks like his former confident self.
Sachin Shingade (Defender)
Some would say Shingade is the weak link in this side, but it takes only one good game to put things right. Today is his chance.
The corner defender continues to surprise with his consistently solid performances and he will once again play a crucial role at the back.
Jawahar Dagar (All rounder)
Dagar has repaid his coach's faith with some mature performances of late. He'd be pinching himself for having found a place in this stellar squad.
Vijay (All rounder)
Among the few inexperienced players in this squad, Vijay doesn't seem fazed by the situation and the pressure that comes with playing for Patna Pirates.
UP Yoddha predicted line up
Surender Singh (Raider)
Among the few Yoddha players who has displayed consistency, his importance in the starting 7 cannot be understated.
Nitin Tomar (Raider)
As a player Nitin has done extremely well but there is a lot left to be desired from him as a captain. Can he overturn his fortunes?
Jeeva Kumar (Defender)
He may be respected among his peers but Jeeva is slowly losing his sheen and will have to pull his socks up for tonight's game.
Rishank Devadiga (Raider)
Rishank hasn't been bad but neither has he been great. Picked by UP with hopes that he would lead the attacking line, Rishank hasn't lived up to his potential yet. But he will hope to make amends tonight.
Nitesh Kumar (Defender)
The right corner will be tasked with the impossible - keeping Pardeep Narwal in check. If he can successfully do it, it's game, set and match for UP.
Partnering him at the opposite corner will be Pankaj, who has failed to make a positive impact since the last few games.
Sagar Krishna (All rounder)
With Rajesh Narwal in horrible form, it will be upto Sagar to ply his trade as the all-rounder of this team.
