Pro Kabaddi 2017: Bengaluru Bulls and Patna Pirates played out a hard-fought 29-29 draw. Monu Goyat scored 11 points for Patna Pirates whereas Rohit Kumar scored nine points for Bengaluru Bulls. It was an evenly contested match with neither team refusing to give an inch. Patna was disappointed with Pardeep Narwal’s quiet second half performance. Narwal’s failure to shine was the one of the reason why Pirates couldn’t emerge victorious. Bengaluru Bulls ended their Pro Kabaddi season 5 with 57 points from 22 matches and finished fourth in Zone B. Patna Pirates, who have already qualified for the super play-offs, have 71 points after 22 league matches and finished second in Zone B.
