Jaipur Pink Panthers have improved a lot since they started their campaign this season. They beat the Patna Pirates convincingly and then had to Tie a game with the Tamil Thalaivas. They have not lost their last 4 games and they can make it all the way if they keep playing this way.
One feels for the Telegu Titans as they have struggled through the seasons and have been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons. They put up a great fight when they took on the defending champions Bengal Warriors and lost the game by just a point. They are still searching for their first victory of the season.
Earlier Ankit Beniwal emerged as the star for the Titans and now its raider Rajneesh. He has earned 56 points in just 6 games. Left corner Sandeep Kandola and Akash Chaudhary have impressed in the defence. But the Jaipur Pink Panthers have an avenger in the form of Arjun Deshwal who has clocked 7 Super 10’s this season. Deepak Niwas Hooda, Shaul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull are lethal with their moves.
This will be a tough game for the Pink Panthers.
The silver lining for the Pink Panthers this season is the rise of Arjun Deshwal. 114 points from 10 matches is a massive achievement. Amongst the ruins he has been their flag bearer.
Jaipur Pink Panthers have slowly crawled to the 5th place in the points table with 31 points from 10 games. They have not lost any of their last 4 matches though they tied the last one with the Tamil Thalaivas. They were made to sweat for every point and this may have fatigued them for the next few games.
They have improved in many areas of the game, especially with Deepak Niwas and raider Naveen giving good support to Arjun Deshwal. The biggest improvement has come with the left corner cover combination of Shaul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull. They have been on a hunting spree in the last few games which has helped the Pink Panthers earn vital tackle points.
They have the highest DoD raid points this season- 47.
They have inflicted 11 all outs while conceding 11 in 10 games.
They have earned 316 team points while considering 320.
They have been able to regulate their expenses in the last few games while their raiding income has increased.
They will be once again heavily dependent on Arjun Deshwal to provide them early raid points. Veteran Dharamraj Cheralathan is more or less in past his prime while the other young defenders will be tested for their temperament in this game against the Titans.
Placed at the 12th spot in the points table does not augur a lot of confidence for the Titans as they are still searching for that first victory of the season. After the initial speed breakers, they have got their vehicle back on track but still they are devoid of glory.
They came close to beating the defending Bengal Warriors in their last match. They lost the game by a point. Even if they could have tied the game, it would have been a great confidence booster for them. As they take on the Jaipur Pink Pathers in the next game, they need to keep some faith. Destiny has been cruel to them but Kabaddi is a funny game and you never know there may be light at the end of the tunnel.
Raider Rajneesh has emerged as a star with 56 raid points in just 6 games. Defenders Sandeep Kandola, Akash Chaudhary and Prince D have emerged as reliable hunters as they have earned well in the last 2 games.
Their right corner cover combo of Baldev and Abhinesh worked well in the last match so did their third raider Vishwas.
Rohit Kumar's fitness is also concerning as he could not play the last game. Telegu Titans need to just go ahead with a young bunch of players and shed the baggage of stars they picked up in the auctions.
They have conceded 369 points while earning just 329 points in 10 games.
If they plan per match, this might be the chance to repairs old mistakes.
This match will start with a lot of optimism for the Telegu Titans who have waited long enough for some triumph on the mat. They have a good bunch of youngsters who can change the course of destiny. But can they contribute together? The Titans were almost upset the Bengal Warriors in their last game and it was a low scoring one. They can just hope that raiders Rajneesh and Ankit Beniwal combine well and their defense is leak proof for a change.
The Pink Panthers would like to continue the good form they have shown in the last 4 games. Though they had to settle for a tie against the Tamil Thalaivas, they have beaten stronger teams and that should give them enough confidence. Arjun Deshwal will be his main weapon apart from other stingers. This should be a low scoring game as the face-off will be between raider Arjun Dehwal and Sandeep Kandola as well as raider Rajneesh and Sandeep Dhull.
Jaipur Pink Panthers will win.
