PKL 2019, Match 104: Patna Pirates vs Haryana Steelers | Match preview, predictions and telecast details - Who will win today’s match?
- Match preview ahead of the clash between the Patna Pirates and Haryana Steelers
Patna Pirates have scored 97 points in the last 2 games and their strike raider Pardeep Narwal has been on top of his game. Pardeep has 11 super 10s in his total of 207 raid points this season which is a major reason for Patna’s rise as of late. With the return of Jang Kun Lee, Patna have started to find some support for their strike raider and they need to sustain the same.
After a series of poor outings, their defenders have now started to put up a good show. Neeraj Kumar has been fantastic in the last 4 games or so. Left corner Jaideep has also looked and Patna will be mighty pleased with Hadi Oshtorak who picked up his 2nd back to back high 5 in the last game.

Haryana Steelers have been one of the most consistent sides this season, with Vikash Khandola being the key to their success so far. Vikash has 125 raid points at an average of 9.61 this season.
His partners Vinay and Naveen have been solid right from the start and the presence of Prashant Kumar Rai provides this team with an extra option. Vinay has 2 super 10s in the last two games. Haryana’s attacking front looks too good at the moment.
Their defence has matured as the season has progressed. Ravi Kumar and Vikas Kale have been very impressive along with right corner Sunil. Skipper Dharmaraj Cheralathan missed the last game and the Steelers will hope for his quick return.
