Key Players

Jaideep – Patna Pirates

Jaideep has led Patna Pirates’ defence brilliantly this season, having managed 56 tackle points in 19 games so far to sit eighth amongst the best defenders of the season. Among the league’s most successful Left Corners, Jaideep will have his work cut out as he goes up against an in-form Bengaluru Bulls raiding unit consisting of Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, Rohit Kumar, Harish Naik and Kashiling Adake.

Rohit Kumar – Bengaluru Bulls

Bengaluru Bulls’ skipper has come into his own after their home leg. He is their second-most successful raider with 129 raid points in 19 games. With Left Corner Jaideep in excellent form, Kumar will have to not just score points at regular intervals, but also ensure that the raiders are cycled well to keep the defender guessing.
