In Match 87 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, Patna Pirates, led by Pardeep Narwal, will lock horns with Jaipur Pink Panthers at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in Kolkata on Thursday. Pardeep Narwal will be playing his 100th match today, however, the prime concern for Patna Pirates' coach would be if support raiders can revive him quickly. No other raider, barring Pardeep, has been able to make any impression as the three-time champions are placed at the bottom of PKL 2019 points table.
Pardeep in prime form, but can his team revive him quickly enough?
In the last 6 matches, Pardeep Narwal averaged close to 15 raid points per game and in the previous match against Tamil Thalaivas he had his best performance of the season scoring 26 raid points. He has 5 Super 10s in the last 6 games and even in the one game where he didn’t, he finished with 9 raid points.
