The match between Patna Pirates and U Mumba will be a cracker of a contest as both sides are in stupendous form. While raider Sachin will lead the charge for the Pirates, U Mumba’s defender Rinku will pose a strong challenge for the Patna side.
The Dabang Delhi K.C. and Jaipur Pink Panthers will be desperate to end their losing streaks when they face off against each other. Naveen Kumar will be the key player for Delhi, while Jaipur will bank on their star raider Arjun Deshwal.
The Puneri Paltan will be hoping to continue their form after registering a victory against Delhi in their last game. However, the Pune side will face stiff competition from U.P. Yoddhas’ raiders Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill.
