Name: Pardeep Narwal
Team: Patna Pirates
Patna Pirates made it back-to-back wins in their home leg with a 45-42 victory over U.P. Yoddha at the Harivansh Tana Bhagat Indoor Stadium in Ranchi on Saturday. Once again it was Dubki King Pardeep Narwal who was the star of the show with his sixth consecutive Super 10 showing – a record in VIVO Pro Kabaddi.
It was a see-saw encounter with both teams having their chances, however, Narwal proved to be the difference yet again with his game-high 15 points. Even though just 10 of his 23 raid attempts ended in success, the Season 4 MVP came up with the goods when most required by his team.
Just when it looked like the momentum was on Lucknow’s side as they entered the closing stages of the match with a lead, it was Narwal’s super raid that turned the game on its head and gave the reigning champions the necessary impetus to keep their 100% record at home intact.
