Welcome to the repeat of the finals of season 9 as the defending champions take on the runners-up of season 9. Both teams met earlier in December 2023, as the Puneri Paltan defeated Jaipur convincingly. These are the top 2 teams of the tournament, but the Puneri Paltan looks unstoppable. Jaipur Pink Panthers have experienced the odd hiccup as they have won 7 out of their 11 matches.
They had to work overtime in their last match to defeat the Telegu Titans. The margin of victory was just 3 points. Iranian defender Reza Mirbhageri scored a Hi 5 which helped the Pink Panthers overcome the Titans. On the other hand, the Puneri Paltan were ruthless as they decimated the Gujarat Giants by a margin of 20 points. Once again the spicy Puneri defense was ruthless and precise. Overall the Jaipur Pink Panthers will have a tough time against their new rival. The Paltan has sailed smoothly over the last few weeks but the Pink Panthers will be playing in their own backyard. Hence this will be an epic contest.
The defending champions are on course to another wonderful season. They have won 7 out of their 11 matches as they are placed in the top 2. But the Pink Panthers need to improve their dominance in each match as they head into the second half of the tournament. Playing in their own den should bring out ruthless performances. But they had to sweat it out against the Telegu Titans in their last match. Jaipur managed to win the match by 3 points still this could have be a clinical performance which would have improved their score difference in the points table.
Jaipur Pink Panthers are operating like a well-oiled machine. MVP of season 9, Arjun Deshwal is in top gear in most games. He earned 14 raid points in the last match. Left corner Ankush too has been consistent as he earned 3 tackle points against the Titans.
Arjun has earned 121 raid points from 92 successful raids in 11 matches.
Defender Ankush has executed 32 successful tackles in 11 games.
But the surprise package for Jaipur in the last few matches has been their Iranian defender Reza Mirbagheri. He has been precise and spicy in his tackles. Reza did take some time to warm up in season 10, but his dives, blocks and waist holds have been deadly. In 10 matches Reza has executed 26 successful tackles. His strike rate in the last 5 games has been phenomenal. That is the reason, the Jaipur Pink Panthers have not lost a game in their last 5 outings. This combinations of Arjun and Ankush/ Reza had brewed a new flavor to the Pink Panthers. But they have a tough week ahead of them. As they get ready to take on the Puneri Paltan, Jaipur has to work overtime in the week as they clash with U Mumba next. Both matches will be exhausting and testing. The Paltan looks unstoppable and they defeated the Pink Panthers in their last league encounter. Hence
By far the best team of the tournament, the Puneri Paltan have done everything correctly. The runners-up of season 9 started the tournament with redemption on their mind. They have won 10 out of their 11 matches which is a brilliant record. They defeated the Gujarat Giants in their last match which was a dominant performance. The Paltan was clinical in its approach as it took a lead of 11 points by half-time. They were all over the Giants as the Paltan inflicted an all-out late into the first half.
Captain Aslam scored a Super 10 while raiders Pankaj Mohite and Mohit Goyat contributed 6 raid points. But what has helped the Puneri Paltan convert themselves into an unbreakable unit is their defense. Left corner Mohammedreza has had a dream run. He scored 4 points in 6 tackles apart from one touch point in his raids. His presence changes the dynamics for the Paltan. They are the only team with 4 proper raiding options in their starting 7. Right corner Gaurav Khatri has been in sensational form as he earned a Hi 5 in the last match. Gaurav and Mohammedreza act like a scissor trimming their opponents in every match. Defenders Sanket Sawant and Abhinesh have been lukewarm yet effective. Hence it is more or less impossible for any team to defeat the Paltan. The only way Pune can be tamed is if they themselves breakdown.
The Paltan may have a 39% success rate in team raids but their efficiency in team tackles is 61% which is unbelievable. This must be the best success rate for any team throughout all the seasons.
Puneri Paltan has scored 447 team points which is the highest.
They have inflicted 24 all-outs in 11 matches which is a phenomenal record.
The Paltan has scored the maximum points in Do-or-Die raids.
Hence they are simply unstoppable at this moment. But Pune needs to be careful that they do not lose their effervescence soon as this is a long tournament. They need to maintain this intensity to reach their final goal, Season 10 title.
The battle for supremacy will take place at the indoor stadium in Jaipur as the home team gets ready to take on the invincible. The Pink Panthers are in decent form, but they need to be dominant against a tough opponent. Raider Arjun Deshwal will be electric in the first half, but he will be targeted by the Puneri corners, viz Mohammedreza and Gaurav Khatri. Jaipur may have a bit of an issue if Arjun Deshwal is kept off the mat for long durations. But the Pink Panther defenders will neutralize 2 out of the 3 Puneri raiders and this will be a sight to enjoy.
The Paltan will be quick with their raids as usual. They know that if they slow down, the Pink Panthers will pounce on them. Hence even if the Paltan loses points, they will be relentless in their approach. Both teams will be slow to start but by half-time, there will be fireworks. As both teams are evenly matched, it will boil down to the unforced errors and the number of all-outs conceded by any team. But this will one of the most memorable matches of season 10. Puneri Paltan is looking for redemption for their loss in the finals of season 9, while the Pink Panthers will plan to avenge their defeat in the league match.
Puneri Paltan will win.
