Pardeep Narwal failed to grant his new Pro Kabaddi League team UP Yoddha a victory from his debut game for the franchise. Now he will be against his former side as the Yoddhas are is ready to take on the challenge of the Patna Pirates. So let's have a look at the detailed preview of an anticipating clash between two neighbourhood rivals.

Strategic takeaways

Pardeep gave a glimpse of his vintage form in the last game but failed to deliver due to a lack of support from other raiders. Coach Jasveer Singh must be expecting a fine performance from Shrikant Jadhav who was their missing jack from the previous fixture. He may continue with the same Starting 7 avoiding any changes. Patna gaffer Ram Mehar Singh will have a tossup between two deserving contenders Shubham Shinde and Sunil for the right corner position.

Head to Head

This traditional rivalry of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar has been intensive at the PKL stage. Their equivalent head to head record depicts the toe to toe struggle between these two neighbouring states. It is so intense that no one has completed a season double victory against each other. Apart from the Pardeep Narwal case, Patna's two premier raiders Monu Goyat and captain Prashanth Kumar Rai were also part of the counterpart franchise previously.

Key Battle

Pardeep Narwal vs Patna Pirates Defense

Pardeep has set his bars too high that he managed to score raid points even from an average individual outing. Patna Pirates vice-captain Neeraj Kumar has to step up his game after going pointless from the opening game. The young defensive unit of Pirates is expected to ask tough questions to Patna's former laal, Pardeep Narwal.
