BLR vs PAT Dream11 : Bengaluru Bulls look to break into the top 2 with the side up against a floundering and crumbling Patna Pirates outfit today
After a day of no kabaddi, Pro Kabaddi League 7 returns with a flourish as proceedings in the rivalry week commence with Bengaluru Bulls and Patna Pirates facing off in Wednesday’s culminating encounter. After being entrapped by inconsistency which pegged them back in their quest of making it into the top 6, last year’s champions Bengaluru Bulls have finally hit their stride at just the right moment.
Also what adds to the importance of this clash is the fact that this is a home encounter for Bengaluru Bulls, a fixture the side will be looking to win after registering their first home leg win in their previous outing. The side ended up defeating Tamil Thalaivas to make it 7 wins from 13 matches and move into fourth place, just three points behind Haryana Steelers in second.
Elsewhere as far as their opponents, Patna Pirates are concerned, things couldn’t get any jitterier and woeful for them whose fiasco of a season looks never ending. Occupying a place in the trenches of the points tally with the side firmly planted in 12th place with just 3 wins, the need of a win is imminent with the season threatening to fold its curtains at an early stage for them.
Ever since their win over U.P. Yoddha on August 9, the side have yet to taste success, an ordeal which looks extremely likely to continue today if they can’t improve on their overall performance. Especially with their opponent being a resurgent and relentless Bengaluru Bulls side, Patna Pirates will know the margins for a win will be extremely small, a match where the side can’t afford any slip ups.
Probable Playing 7
Rohit Kumar, Pawan Sehrawat, Sumit Singh, Mahender Singh, Amit Sheoran, Saurabh, Mohit Sehrawat
Pardeep Narwal, Jang Kun Lee, Monu, Jaideep, Neeraj Kumar, Hadi Oshtorak, Vikash Jaglan
BLR vs PAT Match Prediction
Based on current form plus the complete squad combination and gameplan in place, Bengaluru Bulls should win this one. With both the sides coming in with some of the biggest names in the raiding facet, this will be an extradonaire attacking clash, one where raid points will pour by at will.
What favours Bengaluru Bulls in a match of such consequences is their complete raiding unit with points expected to come in from all corners.

BLR vs PAT Dream11 Defenders
A major reason for Patna Pirates struggling immensely this season is the inability of their raiding unit to intertwine their skill set in unison and out in an enterprising display which sees their entire unit take accountability. We don’t see the predicament improving for them today either, opting for a daunting duo of defenders from Bengaluru Bulls for this one.
With 66 points in between them, out of which 36 are in the side’s leading defender’s kitty alone, we have gotten in Mahender Singh and Amit Sheoran from the outfit. Amit on the other hand has 30 points to his name with the two encapsulating their blocks and holds to form articulate arm-chain tackles and curtail raider’s midway in their raiding efforts.
BLR vs PAT Dream11 All-Rounders
With Bengaluru Bulls expected to target Pardeep Narwal and try to keep him out of the match for a majority of the encounter, Vikas Jaglan will be called upon as the secondary raider for his side, seeing himself involved heavily in the do or die and super tackle raids. This sees us bring in the all-rounder from Patna Pirates while from the other side we have opted for Mohit Sehrawat.
BLR vs PAT Dream11 Raiders
The only reason Patna Pirates have even able to muster together even three wins has been down to their leading raider, Pardeep Narwal’s performance. While he was always expected to come up with such numbers, it’s his ability to wage a lone battle despite getting no assistance from the end which has made heads turn and take attention to his ability to thrive under any circumstances.
With 104 raid points for him and 148 for Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, we have two of the three names who have amassed over 100 points this season plying their skill set today, making it only befitting for us to indulge in the services of both of them. Banty from Bengaluru Bulls completes our picks for this clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Pardeep Narwal has been made our side’s captain for this one while Pawan is the vice-captain.
