Patna Pirates outplayed Tamil Thalaivas 52-24 in Match 80 of Pro Kabaddi League Season 8 at The Sheraton Grand, Whitefield, Bengaluru.
It was a complete team performance from the Pirates with all three raiders contributing. The 28-point margin in the victory will also help them consolidate their position in the race for playoff spots.
Three Patna defenders - Mohammadreza Shadloui (6 tackle points), Neeraj Kumar (6 tackle points) and Sunil (5 tackle points) – picked up High 5s in a total shut down from the men in green. Coach Ram Mehar Singh’s men had 21 tackle points on the night – Patna’s best in PKL history – as they gave Tamil Thalaivas no chance to stage a fightback.
