Patna: The only good raiding team which failed to make playoffs

Top performing raid units had a direct impact to their playoffs chances this season. The only exception has been Patna Pirates.

Team Avg. Raid Pts Raid SR League Standings
Dabang Delhi 21.9 54 1st

Patna Pirates 19.3 46 10th
Barring Pardeep Narwal, all the top performing raiders of this season would be contesting in playoffs. This is a direct consequence of Patna’s over dependency on a single raider in Pro Kabaddi 2019.

Patna Raid Unit: Fully dependent on Pardeep Narwal

Three-time champions Patna have failed to make it to the playoffs for the second consecutive time. The major reason is the ineffectiveness of finding a perfect second raider in the team. Since Monu Goyat, there has been a void left over in the side to support Pardeep.
