Patna Pirates will be doing everything they can to end their five matches winless streak when they face the UP Yoddha at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium in Bangalore on Friday. The three-time champions have endured a difficult campaign this year and currently languish at the bottom of the PKL Season 7 standings.
Match 76: Patna Pirates vs. U.P. Yoddha
Head-to-head: Patna Pirates 4 – 2 U.P. Yoddha. 1 Tie.
Best Raider: Pardeep Narwal
Best Defender: Jaideep
The three-time champions have won just one of their last nine matches and need a quick turnaround in fortunes if they still want to harbor hopes of making the playoffs. ‘Record Breaker’ Parrdeep Narwal has been at his brilliant best but has lacked support from his teammates. His raid points in the Patna Pirates last game went in vain, and that has been the story of the season for the team so far. Jaideep is their leading tackle points scorer, but his last few outings have not been his most productive.
Win rate: 41.67%
Best Raider: Shrikant Jadhav
Best Defender: Sumit
