Patna Pirates 30-30 Tamil Thalaivas

Neither side willing to bend and the match rightfully ending in a draw. The ninth of the season and the fourth for the Thalaivas! The Pirates did not make the best of starts to the second half after dominating the first. The Thalaivas inflicted the all-out and closed in on the lead, a slender one which was wiped out by some brilliant showing. 

The Thalaivas were briefly in the lead towards the end but were just unable to maintain it as continuous attacking from the Pirates levelled the score. In the end, both sides were happy to run down the last minute of play and finish the game in a tie. Both sides extend their unbeaten streak by one, with the Pirates' streak reading 4 games and the Thalaivas' being 5 games now.

However, the Pirates review as they believe the hand that crossed the mid-line came from out of bounds.

Athul's right hand was in the lobby as he crossed the line with his left. Review unsuccessful!

Patna Pirates 18-12 Tamil Thalaivas

A half that has well and truly belonged to the Pirates. They have been absolutely sensational. Monu Goyat has seven raid and a tackle point and has done the bulk of the scoring for the Pirates. The raiders are performing, the well-oiled defence is firing. The Pirates will rely on Goyat to take them over the line in this game. 

The Thalaivas have just not been upto the mark in this contest. After benching Manjeet and K Prapanjan, their raiders have just not gotten the points. Athul MS and the substituted-in Ajinkya Pawar have four points apiece but will need their defence to step up. Expect the Pirates to hold their lead but once certainly cannot write-off the Thalaivas!

Right then, the Patna Pirates as well as the Tamil Thalaivas find themselves comfortably placed in the top six ahead of the game. While the Pirates have played only five games as opposed to the Thalaivas' six, they sit third in the points table courtesy of four wins from five encounters. A win here will take the Pirates to the top of the table and the Pirates will certainly be eager to dock their ship in that position. 

The Pirates have had their fair share of close encounters, with three of them going right down to the last minute. What is commendable is that they have emerged on the right side of it on two occasions but were just unable to do so against the UP Yoddha. Their wins against the Puneri paltan and the Bengal Warriors have been by huge margins and they will be hoping to replicate the same here. The raiding trio of Monu Goyat, Prashanth Kumar Rai and Sachin along with Md. Chiyaneh in the defence certainly makes Patna one of the most formidable sides in this tournament. 

The Tamil Thalaivas, on the other hand, very recently cracked the formula to winning an encounter. They have been part of as many as three tied encounters but have now backed it up with two wins, which puts them fifth on the table with nineteen points. A win here today will level their points with the table-toppers Dabang Delhi K.C. The Thalaivas are coming into this match on the back of a win against the U.P. Yoddha and will look to keep the winning momentum going. Manjeet, K Prapanjan and Bhavani Rajput along with Ajinkya Pawar will handle the raiding department while Surjeet Singh's presence on the mat will be important, with the veteran defender motivating his young defence to perform well.
