Two teams that never got going this season will be facing each other on the mat. Jaipur Pink Panthers lost to Bengaluru Bulls in their last match and have a back to back match the next day with the Paltan.

Paltan sprung a surprise in their last match when they beat the Gujarat Fortune Giants convincingly. They are last in the points table with just 10 points and a score difference of -36. This is huge and goes to show the leakages in their defence. With no Rahul Chaudhary and Nitin Tomar, it will always be an uphill task for them. But they have nothing to lose from here. If you can't win they why not get the pleasure of playing spoil sport.

Pink Panthers will be looking forward to this match but it will all depend on how fit and fresh they are to play 2 matches in 2 days. Once again Arjun Deshwal was his star raider with 13 points against the Bulls. It is also very sad to see a top notch player like Deepak Niwas Hooda not able to push himself to the next level.

This should be an interesting contest as both teams are happy gifting points.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

The silver lining for the Pink Panthers this season is the rise of Arjun Deshwal. 68 points from 6 matches is a massive achievement. Amongst the ruins he has been their flag bearer.

He has the second highest Super 10's after Naveen Kumar. They are in the 10th spot with just 2 victories this season.

Though they have conceded 170 points in 6 matches they have earned only 104 raid points. This has been their biggest issue. Just imagine out of 104 raid points 68 have been earned by Arjun Deshwal alone.

They have been DoD raid specialist with 26 such points till now, they have inflicted the least all outs amongst all the teams and conceded 8 all outs. This is the reason momentum has eluded them throughout.

They will be once again heavily dependent on Arjun Deshwal to provide them with some earning via raids. They have tried various defence options but none of the combinations have worked for them. Veteran Dharamraj Cheralathan is more or less in past his prime while the other young defenders will be tested for their temperament in back to back matches in 2 days.

Puneri Paltan Preview

Puneri Paltan is the flight which never took off, it went taxing around the runway for too long this season. Last in the points table, they could be the miracle baby of the new year if they win all their remaining matches.

Puneri Paltan was always in trouble the moment Rahul Chaudhary could not fire. It took some time for them to gauge this and now they are operating without him. They have found some good youngsters like Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat who collectively scored 18 points in their last match against the Gujarat Fortune Giants. Paltan seized the opportunity against the reckless Giants to register only their second win of the season.

They have conceded the highest all outs this season- 11.

24 overall points considered.

No raider in the top 10.

High expenditure and low income formula does not help you win a league. Is it too late to rework their balance sheet?

Kabaddi is a funny game and you never know there may be light at the end of the tunnel.

Their right corner cover combo of Baldev and Abhinesh worked well in the last match so did their third raider Vishwas.

If they plan per match, this might be the chance to repairs old mistakes.

This looks to be a very complicated match, as both the teams have more issues to solve than plans to execute. Jaipur are playing back to back matches hence they will be carrying some niggles. Puneri Paltan surprised themselves and others by beating the Fortune Giants in their last match.

This will be a contest between raiders Arjun Deshwal and Aslam Inamdar.

Defence of both teams will have to forget charity and indulge in reducing mistakes. Raider Mohit Goyat looks like an exciting prospect for the Puneri Paltan.

This will be an entertaining match full of action and comedy of errors.

Puneri Paltan will win this contest.
