U.P. Yoddha (UP) will take on Patna Pirates (PAT) in match 88 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at the Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Wednesday, February 2. The game will begin at 7:30 PM IST.
UP vs PAT Dream11 prediction
Both sides are coming off losses in their previous fixture and will be eager to get back to winning ways. Patna Pirates are positioned in third spot in the standings with 45 points from 13 outings. A win will help them consolidate their position in the top three in the points table.
Meanwhile, U.P. Yoddha have suffered back-to-back losses against Pune and Haryana in their last two fixtures and will look to snap their losing streak against a well-oiled Patna outfit.
While there is nothing much to segregate between the two sides on paper, Patna Pirates hold the upper hand given the all-round depth and experience of their squad.
UP vs PAT Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8
Top tip: Best raider
Surender Gill of U.P. Yoddha is the best choice amongst the raiders for this match. Gill has recorded 119 raid points after 13 matches this season with five super 10s to his name. Given his form this season, picking Surender Gill in your fantasy team for this match is a no-brainer.
Top tip: Best defender
Amongst defenders, U.P. Yoddha’s Nitesh Kumar will be a vital pick. Nitesh has accounted for 34 tackle points in 14 matches this season and has been the best defender for his team. Nitesh has formed a lethal combination with right corner defender Sumit and the duo have combined to score almost 50 per cent of UP’s tackle points in the ongoing campaign.
