After two consecutive defeats, the UP Yoddha take on the Patna Pirates in match 88 to get their PKL 2021 campaign back on track.

Strategic Takeaways

The Yoddhas come into this encounter on the back of two back to back loses. If their raiders failed to impress in their previous encounter, it was the defensive unit's fault in the match before that. Inconsistency has been their biggest enemy and it is high time Nitesh and his boys figure it out.

Though the Patna Pirates are one of the most comfortably placed teams currently in PKL 2021, they come to this match on the back of a crushing 21-point loss against the Pink Panthers. With just 2 wins in their last five games, Ram Meher Singh would hope the three-time champions turn things around soon.

Head to Head

The UP Yoddha hold a favourable head to head stat against the Pirates, thanks to their narrow one-point win over the Pirates this season.

Key Battle

Surender Gill v/s Mohammadreza

While Gill has been the standout performer for the Yoddha this season, Mohammadreza has been one of the best corners in the league. The last time these two met, the latter completely dominated to keep Gill quiet as Yoddha registered a narrow win.
