The Haryana Steelers will begin their quest for their maiden title against three-time champions Patna Pirates in their first game of the Pro Kabaddi League 2021.

The Haryana Steelers qualified for the playoffs last season after finishing fifth in the points table. However, they lost the eliminator to U Mumba 38-46 to crash out of the competition.

Meanwhile, the Patna Pirates had a season to forget last time around. They finished eighth in the Pro Kabaddi points table with eight wins, 13 losses, and one tied game.

Both Patna Pirates and Haryana Steelers will be eager to begin their campaign on a positive note.

Today’s PKL Match Prediction

The Haryana Steelers have assembled a balanced squad with all bases covered. The presence of quality all-rounders like Rajesh Narwal and Rohit Gulia makes them a dangerous prospect.

At the same time, Patna Pirates have enough firepower in their raiding department. However, they are looking very light in their defense. The Pirates have young but inexperienced defenders, which could come to haunt them.

Prediction: Haryana Steelers are likely to win this contest.
