PAT vs UP Dream11 : Revitalised U.P. Yoddha look continue their quest of challenging for a top 6 spot today when they face off against a dwindling opponent
Ringing in the changes for Pro Kabaddi League as they looked to overhaul their squad and stop under achieving, for U.P. Yoddha nothing clicked in the first half of the ongoing season. The side were filled lapses, ridden with glaring weaknesses which the side found a travesty to address, leaving their season in tatters at the halfway mark.
However, over the course of the last month, the team have been on an incredible uprise. Finally managing to unlock their true potential in both the attacking and raiding facets, the team have tasted consummate success to climb from the tranches of the points tally all the way into seventh spot, placed just 5 points behind sixth placed U Mumba at the moment.
Defeating the Warriors in their previous contents, U.P. Yoddha have now won two matches on the bounce with a win against Puneri Paltan in their kitty as well. They’ll be looking to emulate that form when they square off against Patna Pirates today, a side who look bent on making last spot their own in the league.
Sitting in 12th place with just the 3 wins, this has been a season to forget for Patna Pirates. Their previous defeat to Bengaluru Bulls once again manifested just how horrid their defence is, one which is all too ready to fall apart under the slightest bit of pressure with a lack of a complete performance turning out to be the side’s biggest adversity.

PAT vs UP Match Prediction
With things finally starting to click for U.P. Yoddha who are looking to make a late surge for the coveted top 6 spots, akin to last season, we see them building on their momentum today. The side finally have confidence in their ranks, something which was amiss earlier with the team undaunted by anything that is thrown their way at the moment.
This should be a close encounter, one which U.P. Yoddha manage to win due to their superior defence.

PAT vs UP Dream11 Defenders
At a time when nothing was going right in defence for U.P. Yoddha, their unit has finally started resuming semblance and putting a defiant face to punch above their weight and stall raiders in their sojourns. Be it from the body holds, thigh holds to the ankle holds, the side’s defenders have been immaculate in their tackling, something which they’ll be looking to emulate today as well.
This sees us bring in a formidable duo from the side with us opting for the services of Nitesh Kumar and Ashu Singh. Nitesh has 30 tackle points till now with Ashu being a pleasant surprise for the side, putting in well cued tackles to not only block raiders from moving back but also putting in a solid display in the super tackle situations.
Elsewhere we have opted for Jaideep from Patna Pirates, the side’s highest scorer defender, someone whose tenacity has seen him wage a long battle despite getting no assistance from the other end.
All-Rounders for PAT vs UP Dream11
With not too many options to divulge in over here, we decided to bring in just Monu from Patna Pirates in this one. It’s his two toned nature which sees him earn a spot in our side with the all-rounder being both ever present in his side’s raiding attempts and defensive tackles.
Raiders for PAT vs UP Dream11
Patna Pirates have been all about one player this season. The unstoppable Pardeep Narwal has been sensational as ever, dismissing defenders with disdain to amass a bagful of points for himself. His 118 raid points in 12 matches include an incredible super 10 in the previous match, a 14 point display which once again stamped hs credentials as one of the most revered raiders in the league.
Elsewhere from U.P. Yoddha it was only befitting of us to rope in a duo of raiders given the paper thin identity of their opposition’s defence. Srikanth Jadhav, the side’s leading raider with 62 points comes in for us along with Surender Gill who has been used judiciously by the side of late.
Captain And Vice-Captain
These choices were as clear as they get with Narwal our captain while Jadhav is picked out as the vice-captain.
