JAI vs PAT Dream11 : Patna Pirates begin their home leg today as they face off against Jaipur Pink Panthers in the first of their four home matches
We headed into the Mumbai leg of the Pro Kabaddi League with three unbeaten sides but only one has managed to emerge unscathed from the recently concluded leg. With Dabang Delhi K.C. and Gujarat Fortunegiants both falling to their first defeats, Jaipur Pink Panthers find themselves heading into the Patna leg as the only undefeated side in the league.
And they’ll be looking to build on the foundation of three successive wins when they take on Patna Pirates today evening in the opening match of the third leg of the exhibition league. With a win today taking the side to the echelons of the league standings, propelling them right into stop spot, expect Jaipur to leave no stone unturned in their quest of making it four consecutive wins.
Elsewhere for their opponents on the day, the league has traversed out quite nicely as well. The side have registered two wins from their three outings with their most recent result seeing them just about oust Tamil Thalaivas with a score of 24-23, one that saw their left-corner Jaideep emerge as the match winner with the 7 tackle points to his name.
Elsewhere, Jaipur Pink Panthers enter the fray of this encounter having trounced Haryana Steelers 37-21, a riveting 16 point win which was a testament to the complete and well-rounded identity of the side this season.
Probable Playing 7
Pardeep Narwal(C), Monu, Mohammad Maghsoudlou, Neeraj Kumar, Jaideep, Hadi Oshtorak, Vikas Jaglan
Jaipur Pink Panthers
Deepak Niwas Hooda(C), Deepak Narwal, Vishal, Amit Hooda, Sandeep Kumar Dhull, Sunil Siddhgavali, Ajinkya Pawar
With both the outfits heading into this encounter with inform left-corners and two incredible raiders, this match promises to be an evenly contested match. The margins of error will be extremely small in this cliff-hanger which should shift hands several times before finally falling in the way of the winner.
And we see Jaipur Pink Panthers winning this one solely due to their more effective raiding unit. Although Patna Pirates have Pardeep at their disposal, he’s yet to shine this league and this could end up playing all the difference in today’s tightly contested encounter.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for JAI vs PAT Dream11
Left-corner, Jaideep from Patna Pirates is our first pick in this facet with the defender having emerged as the talisman for his side in the backline. And he’s been brilliantly supported by cove Neeraj Kumar with the two combining together to close out any scope of escape for the opposition raiders, seeing the duo come into our side.
From Jaipur Pink Panthers, we have picked out Sandeep Kumar Dhull for this one. He picked up 6 points in the last match, registering his second high 5 of the season and with Patna Pirates particularly bereft of attacking ideas the last time around, Dhull could get good points today as well.
All-Rounders for JAI vs PAT Dream11
Both are picks are from Jaipur here with us roping in Deepak Niwas Hooda and Vishal for this one. Deepak returned with a massive 14 raiding points in the last match, registering a super 10 as his side went onto obliterate the Steelers from the encounter and will need to come up with another similar showing if his side are to emulate their pefromance against a tough defence.
Raiders for JAI vs PAT Dream11
Pardeep Narwal might have failed to impress in the last encounter but it’s hardly going to deter the best performing raider in the league. A stalwart of PKL, Narwal will be looking to achieve 900 raid points today and expect him to be back at his best and put in an articulate showing.
We have decided to pair him up with Monu who at 13.5 credits makes for a decent enough pick given his relatively strong showings across the three matches for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain for JAI vs PAT Dream11
