PKL Final: Top Performers for Patna Pirates

Patna Pirates could curse the fact that they gave an extra point to Delhi for the wrong revival and it all came down to one point only and that one point won't let the entire Patna Pirates su[p[ort staff sleep easy tonight. Apart from that blunder, Mohammadreza Shadloui was also not able to perform brilliantly in the defence and surprisingly he got more points from raids than defence.
