Patna Pirates are one of the most decorated team of the tournament but kind of unfortunate as they are yet to win a trophy. They have made it to the playoffs for six consecutive rounds but their winning streak was broken in 2018, followed by another failure in seventh season. However, in the absence of star raider Pradeep Narwal, Pirates must be hoping some stand out performance from Prashant Kumar.

Team’s raiding unit looks formidable with players like Sachin Tanwar, skipper Prashant Kumar, Monu Goyat and Monu Sandhu, while Selvamani K will be eager too to make a mark in the campaign. Meanwhile, retained NYP Rajveer Chavan will be hoping to make his PKL debut. Team’s vice-captain Neeraj, one of the most successful defender along with Sandeep will be willing to contribute in team’s successful campaign.
