A scintillating performance in attack by Pardeep Narwal gave Patna Pirates a deserving 29-25 win over their tormentors Telugu Titans in an action-packed Pro Kabaddi encounter at the Netaji Subhash Indoor Stadium here today.

Narwal also received good support from the local boy Rajesh Mondal. Telugu Titans who could boast of two big victories over their opponents in the not too distant past, came against a different opponent who seemed determined to do a course correction.

So dominating were the winners that they managed to get an all-out in the 17th minute of play courtesy Pardeep who produced a super-duper raid worth 6 points. He got four rivals which included the super duo of Rahul Chaudhari and Dharmaraj Cheralathan, which catapulted his side to a healthy 18-11 lead by half-time.

In defence, the Patna Pirates managed just two points and their opponents too did not fare well in that department. The inability of the Telugu Titans to check the Patna Pirates raiders helped things even out. In fact there was only one tackle point recorded by Meraj Sheykh in the first half for the Telugu Titans.

The losers attack also lacked teeth with Rahul just scoring 4 and Sukesh Hegde contributing only 2 points.
