The Bengaluru Bulls and Patna Pirates go head to head for the second time in four days in PKL 2021. So let's unfold the detailed preview of match number 67 of the season eight caravan.

Strategic Takeaways

Ram Mehar Singh's in-form Patna Pirates side suffered from defeat against a Naveen-less Dabang fauj of Delhi. Patna defenders completely failed to anticipate Krishan Kumar Hooda's masterstroke of playing Sandeep Narwal as a raider. The youngster Guman Singh grabbed the golden opportunity with both hands by scoring 11 raid points in the absence of Monu Goyat.

Meanwhile, Bengaluru Bulls' last game was against Patna Pirates. Randhir Singh Sehrawat will be hoping to get rid of over-reliance on his beloved disciple Pawan. The Bulls defensive unit except Saurabh Nandal seemed clueless against Patna raiders. Deepak Narwal may make it to the Starting 7 after a couple of impressive cameos from the substitute bench.

Head to Head

The Bihar-based franchise extended their dominant record Bulls after their previous face-off. Pawan Kumar Sehrawat completed a first-half Super 10 with ease but failed to score a single point afterwards. He spent around 15 minutes of the second half on the bench as his teammates failed to revive Pawan. The Bengaluru captain missed 25 out of 40 minutes of the game and still managed to score a Super 10 shows the class of Powerstar.
