UP Yodha have got into the groove in the last few matches and are now placed 4th in the points table with 28 points. They are tied at 28 points with the Jaipur Pink Panthers and U Mumba.
UP Yodha fought valiantly against defending champions Bengal Warriors only to lose steam in the second half. Yodha are heavily dependent on Pardeep Narwal. He was neutralized by U Mumba in their last match and UP Yodha struggled. But they beat the Telegu Titans and look to have got the winning template.
Punneri Paltan are late to the party but they made a massive statement when they beat U Mumba in their last match. They may not be able to make it to the play off but they will be happy playing party poopers for many.
Pardeep Narwal may not be setting the mat on fire, but he has worked on his limitations. He is earning decent amount of points in order to keep his team in good health.
Captain Nitin Tomar was the star for the Paltan along with left corner Vishal Bharadwaj in their last match. They will win matches only if they contribute in all departments of the game.
The Paltan was long due for some good performances and they have started to deliver, better late than never. They have come to terms with the absence of star Rahul Chaudhary and with Nitin Tomar back in action, they have got the much needed push. They played exceedingly well against U Mumba to beat them by a huge margin on 19 points which is commendable.
They were able to win only because they earned well and their expenses were in control. The defence played an important role in that match as right cover Abhinesh and left corner Vishal Bharadwaj combined to earn 9 tackle points. Add to that the raiding trio of Nitin Tomar, Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat earned 21 raid points together. This is the only formula for success for the Paltan.
They may not have a raider or a defender in the list of top 10 this season but the Paltan has realized that together they can make a huge difference.
They have executed 11 Super Tackles, while inflicting 12 all outs. But they have also conceded 13 all outs too in 9 matches.
They have conceded 295 points in these 9 matches and they will expect they regulate the flow of points when they take on the UP Yodha. They may be 10th in the points table with 21 points but their performance in the last couple of matches has been inspirational.
The Yodha's are suddenly a force to reckon with. They have not lost in their last 3 games and this has pushed them to the 4th spot in the points table. Super Raider Pardeep Narwal was neutralized time and again by opposite teams but he seems to have found his flavour for the season. He has earned only 69 points in the 10 matches that he has played but he has improved his efficiency in the last few games.
Surender Gill has been phenomenal in his raids which has given the edge to the Yodha's. he has earned 73 raid points this season. Defender Sumit is in the top 10 this season with 25 successful tackles including 2 High 5's.
As a team the Yodha's have put in the maximum number of raids while they have also executed 92 successful tackles. They have executed 16 Super tackles which is the highest this season.
The only issue is that their balance sheet shows more debits than credits. While they have earned 202 team raid points, they have conceded 337 points. This is the equation that needs to be corrected.
But they seem to have found a way to correct these discrepancies. The raiding trio of Pardeep, Surender and Shrikant Jadhav will have to deliver once again. The defence combo of Ashu Singh, Sumit and captain Nitesh Kumar will have to hunt efficiently to keep them in the lead throughout the match.
Young raiders like Sahil, Rohit Tomar, Gulveer Singh along with Iranian Mohammad Taghi and Kenyan James Kamveti will need to punch above their weight in this encounter.
This is expected to be a very interesting match, high on emotions and slow moving. Pardeep Narwal is the key for the Yodha, though he would have learned some lessons from the traps laid for him in earlier matches. Nitin Tomar will be the most important player for the Paltan as they would like to isolate either Pardeep Narwal or Surender Gill.
This will also be a contest between the defence of both teams which has looked unbeatable in the last few games. The Puneri Paltan will have to overcome its inconsistencies and avoid unsuccessful advanced tackles.
If the Yodha's are able to rock the Puneri boat they will get closer to the top 3 teams and this will be a big boost to their chances in the play-off games.
This match will be a TIE!!!!
