Defending champions Bengaluru Bulls take on three-time champions Patna Pirates in the second match of the Pro Kabaddi League 2019 at the Gachibowli stadium in Hyderabad.

Pawan Kumar Sehrawat will be the one to watch out for in the Bengaluru Bulls having been named as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) last season after accumulating 271 raid points. Sehrawat will be looking to lead the attack alongside experienced campaigner Rohit Kumar.
Mahender Singh, on the other hand, will be in charge of defence for the Bengaluru Bulls alongside Amir Sheron and Ashish Kumar.
The Patna Pirates led by Pardeep Narwal who is considered one of the league's all-time leading raid points scorer with 858 points, will be in charge of attack alongside Jang Kun Lee and Mohammad Maghsoudlou Mahalli.
The Patna Pirates lead head-to-head clashes 10-3 on aggregate but their opponents can be expected to put up a stern fight.
