Narwal was the star for the Patna team, as has been the case right through the tournament. He topped with 19 raid points and capped a memorable PKL-Season 5 by guiding the team to a hat-trick. The Pirates, who were the best raiding team in the tournament, kept up the pressure on the FortuneGiants, with some superb work, to win 32 raid points.
So, let's take a look at how Twitter reacted to Patna's third Pro Kabaddi title win. Bollywood celebrities, billionaire business men and fellow athletes hailed Patna's incredible achievement.
