The Warriors have taken a one-point lead over the Pirates, courtesy of a top raiding show from Prapanjan and Maninder Singh, both of who have 4 points to their name. For Patna, Pardeep Narwal has 5 points and will be key to eke out a win over their opponents.
Bengal Warriors are coming out of a thrilling tie versus Dabang Delhi K.C. as they look to jump to the 2nd spot in the points table tonight. Patna Pirates, on the other hand, will be desperate for a win as they stand at the 12th spot in standings.
Maninder Singh and K Prapanjan have led the offense of Bengal Warriors with 58 and 51 raid points respectively. They have been formidable against their opponent's defense and score raid points consistently. Mohammad Nabibakhsh has shown his worth as a complete all-rounder as the team has remained a tough side to beat this season.
Pardeep Narwal has been a stalwart for Patna Pirates' offense with 65 raid points in eight matches. The management would be confident heading into this encounter with Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsoudlou who scored six raid points against U Mumba. Jang Kun Lee will have to improve his numbers to remain with the side.
Right corner Baldev Singh is the top score in Bengal's defense with 24 tackle points. Jeeva Kumar and Rinku Narwal have been consistently giving tackle points to the team with proper assists in the tackles. Vijin Thangadurai or Viraj Vishnu Landge will have to step up to book their spot as a cover defender.
Jaideep has scored 26 tackle points in eight matches for Patna Pirates. Hadi Oshtorak scored three tackle points versus U Mumba as the corner defense for the team has remained decent so far. Vikas Jaglan and Neeraj Kumar would yet again play their roles as cover defenders for the team.
Will Bengal Warriors yet again show a dominant performance? Or will Patna Pirates climb up the points table with a win?
