In Match 54 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, Gujarat Fortunegiants, who lost all home matches, will take on laggards Patna Pirates at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai on Friday. Gujarat’s elite cover combo of Sunil Kumar and Parvesh Bhainswal have been two of the most consistent defenders in PKL since they came to prominence in season 5. In today’s match they take on the top raider in Pro Kabaddi history. Pardeep has scored 679 of his total 935 raid points in the last three seasons. Gujarat Fortunegiants, despite, some struggles still rank among the top scoring defensive teams PKL 2019. However, Pardeep’s Patna Pirates are among the worst raiding teams.
Key battle: Sunil-Parvesh vs Pardeep Narwal
As we have seen many times in Pro Kabaddi 2019, half the battle is won against Patna Pirates when Pardeep Narwal is tackled and sent to the bench as they have no one to revive him. Since PKL 2018, Sunil and Parvesh have had the upper hand over him. Pardeep has a 9-6 record against Parvesh and 6-4 record against Sunil in his PKL career. But in PKL 6 he was 3-3 against Parvesh and 0-2 against Sunil. He also has been tackled 6 times by Gujarat’s new left corner Pankaj against whom he has a 9-6 career record.
