This will be another exciting encounter of season 9 as table-toppers Jaipur Pink Panthers take on the vibrant Puneri Paltan. Jaipur has progressed in a systematic manner to top the table with 26 points. They have won their last 5 games and this is one of their best consecutive winning sprees. 

The Puneri Paltan have had speed breakers during their journey but they have managed to control the game and win from losing situations. They have a nasty escape against the Bengal Warriors in their last game which was a low-scoring affair. Both teams are evenly matched in their raiding department. They are also at the same level in terms of their defense, but the Puneri Paltan defense has faltered once in a while. Puneri Paltan has won its last 3 games which have given them a lot of confidence as well as self-belief.

This will be a face-off between raiders Arjun, Rahul, and Ajith vs Aslam, and Mohit Goyat.

Puneri Paltan Preview

Puneri Paltan is one of the most vibrant sides of the season. It may not dominate the mat, but it has the zing and the spice to take on any opposition. With the return of Fazel Attrachali, the Paltan has become more dangerous. They have now cultivated the art of regulating the game.

They had a tough time handling the Bengal Warriors as it took a lot of effort to tame them. Paltan won by a margin of 2 points after trailing in the first half. This self-belief was missing in the Paltan for a long time. Raiders Mohit Goyat and Aslam Inamdar. The inclusion of Fazel Attrachali and Nabibaksh has given the team a different dimension. 

The only concern is the close moments that go out of control. The Paltan has won their last 3 games but all of them were close encounters. They beat U Mumba by 2 points, had a close shave against the Telegu Titans, and then tamed the Bengal Warriors with great difficulty.

In all 3 games their earnings via raids and tackles were not that great and what saved them was the all-out they inflicted on each team at crucial moments. A cat has 9 lives, how many does the Paltan have? The Paltan has inflicted 4 Super tackles but no Super raid yet. This is a cause of concern as Mohit Goyat and Aslam Inamdar earn steady raid points but they have not been able to hit jackpots. This puts a lot of pressure on the defense who have to play safe and inflict all-outs at the last minute. The Paltan does not enjoy a great record against the Pink Panthers as they have not beaten them since season 6. This will give them that extra reason to improve their tactics and deploy them against the table toppers.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

The Jaipur Pink Panthers are living their dream. They have seen the entire spectrum of the PKL, from being champions to languishing in the lower half of the points table. But this season has brought a change in their fortunes. They have a lethal combination of raiders and a dangerous band of defenders. That has helped them to win their last 5 games.

Raider Arjun Deshwal has earned 65 raid points in 6 games which includes 4 Super 10’s. He has been adequately supported by Rahul Chaudhary and Ajith. This has helped the Pink Panthers build pressure very early on their opponents. These raiders have also conducted 3 Super raids this season. 

The Pink Panthers are table toppers due to the fact that 3 of their defenders feature in the top 10 list of this season. Diminutive left corner Ankush, Captain Sunil Kumar and Sahul Kumar have collectively registered 4 High 5’s. This has turned the Pink Panthers into an unbeatable unit. In their thrashing of Telegu Titans, these defenders looted 16 tackle points which decimated the opponents completely.

But the Jaipur Pink Panthers have to be careful as the journey from hereon will be tough where they will have to maintain their consistency and bear the weight of expectations. The rise of Rahul Chaudhary has been phenomenal as he has fit into the supportive advisory role along with Arjun Deshwal and instead of becoming a liability on the team, he is not an important cog in the wheel. 

The Pink Panthers have always had a great record over the Puneri Paltan. They have not lost to them since 2018 and they will look forward to maintaining this spotless record. They will try and create panic among the Paltan defense but they will have to be careful about master tactician Fazel Attrachali.

Expect a game full of fireworks as both sides will explode on each other from the first minute. Puneri Paltan knows how to play within their limitations. Aslam and Mohit will continue earning steadily but they need to surprise the Pink Panthers with a bug Super raid. Fazel will look out for Arjun Deshwal so that he can be neutralized. Nabibaksh has to contribute significantly to this match. He could not score in the last game. 

The trip of Arjun, Rahul, and Ajith will wreak havoc in the Puneri defense. The Pink Panthers should not underestimate the Paltan defense and stay away from being all-out at crucial moments. Pink Panthers will target all-rounder Balasaheb Jadhav and left cover Sanket Sawant of the Paltan as they have not been in the best of forms. 

This will be a high-voltage affair.

Jaipur Pink Panthers will win.
