It is getting tighter in the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2018 season and with the playoff places still up for grabs, there is intense competition. The home stretch of Bengal Warriors will see them lock horns with defending Champions Patna Pirates, with both sides eager for a win for contrasting reasons. Bengal have got games in hand, which means they are in the driving seat even if the result goes against them, while Patna need to win at all costs!
The last time these sides faced was in the Mumbai leg, when Patna thrashed Bengal 50-30. Although the score indicates it was a lopsided encounter, it was much closer than that. Bengal’s raiders were unsuccessful in picking up points at crucial intervals, as only Maninder Singh with six points was the leader.
Patna had no such problem as the two Narwals – Pardeep and Deepak – ran riot and picked up 24 points between them. The Bengal defence had no answer to the duo, while the Patna defence led by Jaideep (who got a high 5 in that match) kept the Bengal raiders quiet.
The Pirates would like this match to go the same way, but there is a lot more pressure on them considering the importance of this match. The loss yesterday night for the Telugu Titans improved their chances, but that can only come to life if they pick up a win over the Warriors. All will depend on how well Pardeep will work out his magic!

Maninder Singh has 157 raid points this season and has been one of the strongest contenders to be part of your team. His calm and assured raiding will benefit him with points in crucial encounters.
