The Patna Pirates will play their first match of the second half of PKL 2021 against the Tamil Thalaivas after a covid-19 outbreak kept them out of action for a long time.

Strategic Takeaways

The Patna Pirates return to the mat after a long time, thanks to a covid-19 outbreak in the team. They were in a stupendous touch and ruling the points table before being forced to take a break. It would be interesting to see if they can start from where they left off.

The Tamil Thaliavas, on the other hand, continue to struggle at the bottom half of the points table even though they have lost just 3 out of their 12 matches. Surjeet and boys have made it a habit to settle for ties, having ended with stalemates a whopping 50% of the times this season.

Head to Head

The Pirates have a clear advantage when it comes to head to head encounters against the Thalaivas. Their last meeting, however, ended in a stalemate, courtesy a defensive failure for the three-time champions.
