Bengal Warriors have tied two of their last three games in PKL 2019. They were held to a 29-all tie by the struggling Telugu Titans before another 30-30 tie with Dabang Delhi. Sandwiched between these two ties was their confidence-boosting 28-26 victory against Gujarat Fortunegiants, where they came from behind to tie the game.
Bengal Warriors are unbeaten in their last four games in PKL 2019. Their top raiders K. Prapanjan and skipper Maninder Singh have been in top form and are well supported by Iranian all-rounder Esmaeil Nabibakhsh and defenders Jeeva Kumar and Rinku Narwal, which has kept Bengal in fray for progressing to the playoffs.
Patna Pirates, on the other have been struggling after beginning season 7 of PKL with a 32-34 defeat to defending champions Bengaluru Bulls. The Pardeep Narwal-led side followed the defeat with successive victories against Telugu Titans and Tamil Thalaivas but has since won only one in five games, while also losing four.
They thrashed UP Yoddha 41-20 to end a hat-trick of losses but stumbled against U Mumba and went down 30-34 in their previous PKL 2019 match. Star raider and captain Pardeep Narwal has been their best raider but Patna has been lacking in contributions from the other players despite signing the likes of Lee Jang-Kun and Mohammad Esmaeil this season.
