A match between two teams with the complete opposite fortunes this season will be played when the league leaders Dabang Delhi will take on the Patna Pirates in their last match of the home leg.
While the Dabangs from Delhi are decimating their opponents for fun this season, the Pirates’ ship is sinking deeper with every match. The fixture could not have come at the worse time for the Pirates.
Three-time champions are searching for a morale-boosting victory at which they can build upon and stay in the hunt for the playoffs. But they have to face a compact Delhi side lead by charismatic Naveen Kumar who have won every home game they have played so far. The Delhi-based franchise will fancy their chances to go unbeaten in the home leg against a struggling Patna Pirates side.
