Puneri Paltan vs Patna Pirates: The Sportsrush brings you the Dream11 prediction between Puneri Paltan and Patna Pirates.
At a time when Puneri Paltan looked to have breathed their last in Pro Kabaddi League 7, the season has overturned for them in the most resounding and incredible of fashions. Having recorded two straight wins after defeating Gujarat Fortunegiants yesterday in their first home leg match, the side are now in with a very realistic chance of making it into the top 6.
Looking to register their second successive win today, a narrative the side would have never fathomed they would be chasing before today, the outfit will be extremely cautious of the threat Pardeep Narwal brings today. He’s waged a lone battle for his side, putting on a sublime and prestigious display of raiding to singlehandedly carry them to five wins, seeing them placed right below Puneri Paltan in the league.
With his outfit finding themselves right adjacent to Puneri Paltan preceding today’s clash, Patna Pirates will be well aware that all is not lost for them till now. A win today would only see them move above Puneri Paltan in the points tally but throw them back into the mix and contention for a spot in the top 6, something which is buoy the side ahead of today.
With wins over Tamil Thalaivas and Jaipur Pink Panthers in the previous couple of matches, the side are carry immense momentum into today’s match, having won two matches on the bounce for only the second time in the league. The chance of achieving three successive wins for the first time ever in PKL 7 is set to see them put in a momentous display as they look to carry their resurgent manners into the business end of the marquee league.
Probable Playing 7
Nitin Tomar, Manjeet Singh, Surjeet Singh, Amit Kumar, Pankaj Mohite, Jadhav Balasaheb, Pawan Kumar
Pardeep Narwal, Neeraj Kumar, Jaideep, Hadi Oshtorak, Jang Kun Lee, Mohammad Esmaeil, Ashish
It’s too close to call this match especially with the turnaround in form for both these sides. While Pardeep Narwal has continued being his side’s saviour across the league, Puneri Paltan out in a terrific display in both their attacking and raiding components to obliterate Gujarat Fortunegiants with consummate ease yesterday.
However, up against a mightily better raiding unit, things are no longer going to be as straightforward for them today. Patna Pirates have displayed an immense consistency up the mat, something which should see them register a win for today’s clash.

Dream 11 Picks
We have kept things balanced in this segment of our side, getting in the one player apiece from either side, beginning with Jadhav Balasaheb Shahaji from Puneri Paltan. He recorded a high 5 yesterday alongside captain Surjeet Singh and the duo will need to right on Pardeep Narwal today, curtailing his raids and trying to ensure he spends a good amount of the match outside the mat.
Elsewhere from the opposition we are getting in Neeraj Kumar after his good display against Jaipur in the bygone encounter. He picked up 6 tackling points against Jaipur, a performance which resonated how rousing the side’s defence has been recently for the, a massive reason for their incredible rejuvenation in the league.
Puneri Paltan’s leading raider, Manjeet was always going to be opted by us for this encounter. He’s been the fulcrum of everything right the side have managed to craft out in the attacking segment, pulling off raids with effervescent ease to earn a place in our side.
We have the one pick coming in from the opposition as well, choosing all-rounder Monu from their side for this match.
Not choosing Pardeep Narwal as the first player in this segment would have been a massive injustice to the raider’s attacking capabilities. He has amassed 40 raid points in the last two matches, momentous figures which are a testament to his pulsating nature as a raider, rummaging his way past any defensive setup with incredible ease.
Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsoudlou Mahalli is selected as well by us from the side while from Puneri Paltan we have chosen Pankaj Mohite, someone who has been the biggest find of the season for them.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Absolutely no hesitation while making Pardeep Narwal our captain while Manjeet is selected as the vice-captain.
