The defending champions will take on the young and vibrant Haryana Steelers in their next match. Haryana Steelers have made a sensational comeback by jumping to the 5th spot in the points table. They have won 7 out of their 12 games which is same as Dabang Delhi. Haryana Steelers have been successful because of teamwork. On the other hand Arjun Deshwal continues to shine for the Jaipur Pink Panthers. He scored yet another Super 10 against U Mumba in the last match.
But the Pink Panthers have to be vary of the Steelers. Though Jaipur defeated them in their first match of the season on 3rd January 2024, the Steelers were still searching for their best combination. A lot has changed since then and this contest will be a tough one for the Pink Panthers. Haryana Steelers defense has improved over the last few weeks and they have used multiple players during a single match. This has been their tactical brilliance. Jaipur is totally dependent on Arjun Deshwal but their defense is unbelievably strong. Defenders Ankush, Sunil Kumar, Sahul Kumar and Iranian Reza Mirbagheri have been unbreakable. Hence this contest will be one of the best in the season. Haryana Steelers will be looking to avenge their earlier defeat.
The defending champions are comfortably placed in the top 5 in this season. They have been generally consistent. They have won 7 out of their 12 matches apart from scoring a TIE in 2 games. Jaipur had a wobbly start to the season but they settled down quickly. The Pink Panthers have their best raider Arjun Deshwal operating with class. He as earned 148 raid points in 112 successful raids. This includes 9 Super 10’s and 3 Super raids. He has seldom failed, hence the Pink Panthers are comfortably placed on that count. Arjun has been supported nicely by veteran Ajith and Bhavani Rajput. Jaipur has given enough match time to young raiders Shubham Shelke and Iranian Amirhossein. Hence they have an arsenal of 5 raiders at any point of time.
Jaipur’s efficiency in team tackles is about 40% while its success rate in team raids has improved to about 37%. Captain Sunil Kumar and Ankush have been impressive but overall their defense has a few issues too. Jaipur had to replace veteran defender Sahul Kumar midway. His replacement at the right corner Lucky Sharma scored 2 tackle points in a low scoring game. But Sahul Kumar is back on track after the short break. He earned 4 tackle points against U Mumba in the last match. Left corner Ankush has also blown hot and cold but he is an asset to the Pink Panthers. Iranian defender Reza Mirbhagheri has turned out to be the surprise package. He has executed 29 successful tackles in 11 matches and bulk of these have come in the last 5 matches.
Jaipur Pink Panthers have won 5 consecutive matches and look unbeatable. But their fans will be worries about the law of averages catching up. Have they peaked too early in the season? These issues will be on their mind as they take on Haryana Steelers. Jaipur defeated the Steelers in their first encounter of season 10. This was a huge 11 point victory. But then the Steelers were trying out various combinations and had few issues. Off-late the Steelers have revitalized themselves. Hence this will be a tough encounter for the defending champions. Jaipur has won 8 out of their 13 matches with Haryana. The Steelers have not defeated Jaipur since season 8. Hence this will be one of the best contest that fans at Jaipur can witness as the caravan moves to Hyderabad in a few days.
The young Haryana brigade has displayed tenacity, teamwork with a bit of inconsistency. They have a decent raiding team while their defense is among the best in the business. Coach Manpreet will be happy with the way the team has shaped up. Currently they are placed 5th in the points table after winning 7 out of their 12 matches.
Haryana used their superstars in the first few matches but it didn’t produce any worthwhile performances. Hence the Steelers have utilized young raiders like Vinay, Shivam Pathare and Tejas Patil. All-rounder Ashish too contributed to the raiding. Their best move was drafting veteran Chandran Ranjit as their lead raider in the last few matches. This has worked for the Steelers as it has taken the load of raiders like Vinay and Siddharth Desai. This has also ensured a steady flow of raid points. Chandran was coach Manpreet’s trump card when they were part of the Gujarat Giants team.
Captain Jaideep Dahiya has executed 36 successful tackles in 12 matches. Right corner Rahul Sethpal and right cover Mohit Nandal have been consistent. Hence the Haryana Steelers have started surprising their opponents with this young brigade. Their success rate in team tackles is about 42% while their efficiency in team raids is about 33% which needs improvement. The Steelers have executed 5 Super raids apart from 10 Super tackles in 8 matches. The Steelers had a dominant win over the Tamil Thalaiva in their last match. Right cover Rahul Sethpal was deadly as he scored a Hi 5. Though the match got a bit rough as Captain Jaideep and raider Vinay picked up green cards. This victory has given the Steelers a boost ahead of their match against Jaipur in their own den.
Haryana has won just 3 out of their 12 encounters with the Jaipur Pink Panthers. They have not defeated Jaipur since season 8. Their biggest concern is the sudden drop in intensity. Haryana Steelers lost the Pink Panthers in their first league match with the defending champions. This was a defeat by a margin of 11 points. With the Steelers recharges, will they be able to beat the Pink Panthers at Jaipur? But winning this match is very essential for Haryana as they can push themselves into the top 3 in the points table.
Welcome to the last league match at the indoor stadium in Jaipur as hosts and defending champions take on the young Haryana Steelers. Jaipur looks settled with MVP of season 9, Arjun Deshwal on a dream run. He will once again score a Super 10. But the support raiders may not be able to earn as much. Hence Jaipur will starve for raid points in the first half. The Pink Panthers defense will compensate for this as they will not allow the Steelers to earn lot of points. The first half will move at snail’s pace due to this.
The Haryana defense too will counter attack which will push the Pink Panthers on the back-foot. The Steelers will benefit from the fact that they have quite a few raiding options. None of their raiders will score a Super 10, but Haryana will build the pressure with raid points. Captain Sagar and Rahul Sethpal will be precise with their tackles. They will target Arjun Deshwal and keep him off the mat. But the second half of the match will be very exciting as both sides will intensify their attacks. This might be a heart-break for the defending champions.
Haryana Steelers will win.
