Patna Pirates (PAT) will take on defending champions Bengal Warriors (BEN) in match 24 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Friday, December 31. 

PAT vs BEN Dream11 prediction

Bengal Warriors will be up against three-time champions Patna Pirates in a crucial game on Friday. The Warriors are coming off a disappointing loss against Dabang Delhi K.C. and desperately need their defence to fire. They have two wins and as many losses in four outings so far and will be desperate to get back to winning ways. 

Meanwhile, the Pirates have looked like a settled unit this season in both offence and defence. A win over the defending champions will be a morale booster for their team. 

There is nothing much to separate between the two teams on paper although Patna Pirates’ recent form make them slight favourites to win this contest. 

PAT vs BEN Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8 

Top tip: Best raider

Bengal Warriors’ Maninder Singh is the best choice for this game. Maninder has been the best raider for his side this season with 48 raid points in four matches including a whopping 16 points in the last game against Dabang Delhi K.C. With 325 fantasy points to his name already this season, Maninder Singh will be a top pick for this game. 

Top tip: Best defender

Mohammadreza Chiyaneh of Patna Pirates’ will be a no-brainer for this contest. The Iranian has scored 12 tackle points across three outings and has been a consistent performer for the three-time champions in Season 8. Although listed as an all-rounder, Chiyaneh will be used primarily as a defender courtesy of his superior skill. With 258 points already to his name, Mohammadreza Chiyaneh will be a worthy pick for this clash.  

Top tip: Best all-rounder 

Amongst the all-rounders, picking Sachin Tanwar in the fantasy team is a no-brainer. Sachin has been at his best in both offensive and defensive skills this season and has also managed to bag a High 5 in Season 8. With 10 points in each of his last two outings, Sachin Tanwar is a must-have pick for 15 credits. 

PAT vs BEN probable starting lineups

PAT starting 7 (probable): Prashanth Kumar Rai (captain), Sachin Tanwar, Monu Goyat, Sandeep, Neeraj Kumar, Mohammadreza Chiyaneh, Shubham Shinde
