All you need to know about match 82 of PKL 2021 between Patna Pirates and Jaipur Pink Panthers.
The Patna Pirates take on Jaipur Pink Panthers seeking revenge and the top spot in the points table in match 82 of PKL 2021.
The Patna Pirates returned to the mat in a stunning fashion, going past the Tamil Thalaivas by a massive margin of 28 points. Such was their performance that Ram Meher Singh was not required to make any substitutions at all, with six of their first seven pocketing five or more points in the match.
The Pink Panthers, on the other hand, have not been able to sustain a winning momentum and come into the match on the back of two ties and two loses. In fact, their last victory of the season came against the Pirates in the first half of the league more than 15 days back.
Head to Head
While the Patna Pirates have traditionally been the more dominant side against the Pink Panthers in the head to head encounters, things have been a bit different this year. One of the only three loses for the three-time champions so far this season has come against the Panthers.
