PAT vs HAR Dream11 : Patna Pirates continue to search for an elusive home leg win as they take on an equally perturbed Haryana Steelers
The narrative built around Patna Pirates ahead of their home leg was one where they were expected to decimate sides and come out with comprehensive wins. After all the side have Pardeep Narwal at their disposal, someone who the boisterous Patna Pirates support always turn up in large numbers to watch and cheer on. And while the raider has been flawless as ever, the rest of the side has fallen apart, seeing Patna Pirates put in abject displays.
Where the home leg was supposed to see them make massive strides in the league standings, it’s ended up being a disruptive one for the side. They have lost both of their matches contested at their stadium and ahead of their clash against Haryana Steelers today, the side will be looking to register their first home leg win.
Having succumbed to a massively stunning defeat against Puneri Paltan in their previous encounter as they were trounced 14-0 in the first half, Patna Pirates will be knowing that in Haryana Steelers, they have a side who they can register a win against today. The Steelers have failed to win a single match since their league opener, failing to three successive wins, the most recent one seeing them squander a first half lead against Tamil Thalaivas.
Probable Playing 7
Pardeep Narwal, Jang Kun Lee, Monu, Jaideep, Neeraj Kumar, Hadi Oshtorak, Vikash Jaglan
Naveen, Selvamani K, Vikash Kandola, Parveen, Vikas Kale, Dharmaraj Cheralathan, Sunil
While Haryana Steelers find themselves slumped in 11th position in the league standings, the return of raider Vikash Khandola proved to be an extremely fruitful one for the side the last time around. He ended up scoring 8 raid points, helping resume semblance in the attacking side of thing’s for his side with Naveen and Vinay combining to come up with 9 points.
On the other hand, Patna Pirates venture into this encounter with Pardeep Narwal having scored 15 points in his two home leg matches and if we can get the assistance he’s been denied of till now, his side make for a formidable raiding unit. This encounter will be decided by the better raiding side and we see Patna Pirates just about edging the match there.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for PAT vs HAR Dream11
With an average of 3.8 tackle points per match, left corner Jaideep has been the most successful defender for Patna Pirates. He’s helped imbed a culture of excellence for his side, waging a lone battle at the back to nail down a place in our outfit for this match.
Combining together to deliver five crucial tackle points for their side in the last encounter, Vikas Kale and Sunil are our picks from the Steelers. Patna Pirates have failed to step up to the mantle in unison in the attacking side of things and Steelers could end up picking up pivotal points today.
All-Rounders for PAT vs HAR Dream11
Someone who as aided Jaideep perfectly in the defensive side of things has been all-rounder Monu and we are roping him in this facet. Along with their being a likelihood of Patna Pirates being on the verge of an all out in this match, Monu will get his fair share of chances to come out and raid as well, making him a relatively decent choice.
Raiders for PAT vs HAR Dream11
With 30 raid points this season, Pardeep Narwal was on the top of our mind when we started to craft out this department of our playing 7. Perhaps the most effective and influential raider in the league, Narwal has been bankable as ever for his side and should come up with another stupendous showing today.
From the Steelers it was a choice between Vikas Jaglan and Naveen and we decided to head in with Vikash for this match. He delivered 8 points in his first appearance this season and we see him putting on another flawless display today. He’s going to be accompanied by Vinay as the side look to improve on their 70 empty raids.
