Pro Kabaddi 2021: “We can easily beat the Patna Pirates if Ravinder Pahal plays” – Gujarat Giants coach Manpreet Singh

Giants of Gujarat Head coach Manpreet Singh believes that the outcome of his team’s match against Pirates of Patna could have been different had the team’s star defender Ravinder Pahal played tonight in Bengaluru.

The Ahmedabad-based brand locked horns with three-time champion Patna Pirates in the rematch of the fifth PKL season finale. The team led by Prashanth Kumar Rai narrowly won with a score of 27-26.

In the post-match press conference, Gujarat Giants coach Manpreet Singh was asked if Prashanth Kumar Rai’s double-pronged tackle in the 37th minute was the turning point of the game.

“Look, I think when the Gujarat Giants raiders were Super-split twice, it was the turning point of the game because we could have taken a pretty good lead by finishing all-round,” Manpreet Singh replied. “Also, in Patna’s survival raid, Girish had to go out for medical reasons, Hadi came in and he didn’t warm up well, and from that area only scored two points.

“I believe the defenders played better than the previous games,” he added. “But I think we could have easily beaten the Patna Pirates if Ravinder Pahal had played in his position.”

Gujarat Giants are currently 9th on the scoreboard with 15 points from 7 matches. The Ahmedabad-based brand hasn’t played to their full potential this season as they’ve only registered one win so far.

The Giants will aim to get back on track when they battle the Telugu Titans on Tuesday. It will be interesting to see who is the best in that match.
