Telugu Titans vs Patna Pirates: Match Preview and Prediction

Patna Pirates vs Telugu Titans Dream11 Prediction

Match 11 of the VIVO Pro Kabaddi 2019 will see the face-off between the two teams, Telugu Titans vs Patna Pirates. Both the teams are yet to taste victory in this season. While Telugu Titans have lost all three of the matches they have played till now, Patna have tasted just the one loss in Pro Kabaddi Season 7 thus far, that too, by a very small margin in their season opener against the defending champions Bengaluru Bulls with the score reading 34-32.

Telugu Titans got a lot of things right against Delhi and would want their defence to step up against the Pirates if they are to win the game. Telugu would need to stop Pardeep Narwal and Jang Kun Lee if they are to have any chance. Telugu would also hope Suraj Desai replicates his debut performance from the last game, where he scored 18 points.

Telugu Titans did not have a good start to the season as they lost both the matches against U Mumba and Tamil Thalaivas respectively, before going down to Dabang Delhi in a cliffhanger. Raiders Rajnish Dalal and Siddharth Desai were the stand-out players for their side in the first couple of games, however, Suraj Desai produced the best performance on debut ever, in Pro Kabaddi history, in the Titans’ third game. He would be hoping to get things right yet again and the coach would be working on getting the defence right with Vishal Bhardwaj, Mighani and Milaghardan in the fray.

Patna Pirates led by Pardeep Narwal were only 2 points short off a win in their first game against Bengaluru Bulls. It was a nail biting match, where defending champions Bengaluru Bulls came out on top.

Pardeep Narwal was the star of the show yet again for the side, earning a Super 10 in the very first game itself. Iranian pair of Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsoudlou Mahalli and Hadi Oshtorak got 3 tackle points each and would yet again hold the key in defence.

Key Battles:
1. Pardeep Narwal vs Vishal Bhardwaj
Pardeep Narwal will be up against former Telugu Titans captain Vishal Bhardwaj. This is going to be the most intriguing battle in the game, and probably the one that will go on to define the match.
Narwal got a Super 10 in the first game, while Vishal has had a lacklustre start to Pro Kabaddi 2019, securing just 8 tackle points in 3 games, but he would want to step up big time.
2. Suraj Desai vs Hadi Oshtorak
The star of the last game Suraj Desai, had a dream debut earning 18 raid points in 15 attempted raids, also securing the best debut in Pro Kabaddi. He would look to put-in a similar performance, and this time in a winning cause. Iranian Oshtorak would look to pounce on any mistake committed by Suraj and guide his team to a win.

Probable Playing Seven
Telugu Titans: Vishal Bhardwaj, Farhad Milaghardan, Abozar Mighani, C Arun, Suraj Desai, Siddharth Desai, Rajnish
Patna Pirates:  Pardeep Narwal, Hadi Oshtorak, Mohammad Esmaeil
Maghsoudlou Mahalli , Jang Kun Lee, Jaideep, Neeraj Kumar, Vikas Jaglan

Match Prediction:
It is going to be a very tough encounter with both teams going all out to win this game. With Telugu Titans in a spot of bother and needing to win to stay in the hunt, I would go with Telugu Titans winning the game. They have a slightly better outfit as well, who should do the job.
