As we welcome 2024, hotshots Puneri Paltan get ready for another hammering as they take on the Telegu Titans. Puneri Paltan looks invincible as they have lost just 1 match in this season. They should be able to carry their luck into 2024 as they have the best combination among all teams. They defeated the Patna Pirates in their last match by a margin of 18 points. Such was their dominance that inflicted 3 all-outs on their opponents in the match. 

On the other hand, the Telegu Titans are in familiar situation. They are at the bottom of the points table after playing 8 matches. They seem to be continuing their luck from season 9 where they finished last. Its looks unreal that they may be able to change their luck on the first day of the new year as they take on the best team of the tournament. The Titans are totally dependent on Pawan Sehrawat. But he was not available in their last match against U Mumba. His absence was evident as the Titans lost by a margin of 18 points. Hence this will be a contest between the Paltan who won their last match by 18 points and the Telegu Titans who lost their last game with a similar margin.

Telugu Titans Preview

Telegu Titans is one of the most popular but unsuccessful teams of PKL. Their fan following is tremendous but that has never converted into on-field success. Season 10 seems to be going just like last year and the Titans have not been able to kick-start their campaign. The only feature in their cap this season was when they defeated the Haryana Steelers. They lost their first 5 matches before this victory. It looked as if the Titans may just become crusaders of season 10. But they continued to play some lethargic kabaddi without much of team work.

Telegu Titans are totally dependent on their captain Pawan Sehrawat. He has earned 76 raid points in 60 successful raids which includes 6 Super 10’s. With such a superstar in their camp, one would expect the Titans to flourish. But instead they kept on losing most of their matches. They have not been able to forge decent combinations. Titans have some good players in their squad, but they don’t have the creativity to use their resources properly. 

Veteran defender Parvesh Bhainswal was in good form for the national team at the Asian Games. But he could not replicate the same for his franchisee. It is surprising to see the Titans not using all-rounder S Sanjeevi often. He displayed some surprising moves in the first few matches only to be benched. Pawan Sehrawat was not available in the last match, but the trio of Robin Chaudhary, Rajnish and Praful Zaware worked together to earn 22 raid points. The trio could have exhibited some aggression to earn at least 5 more raid points which could have been useful for the team. Unfortunately the Telegu defense was not up to the task as U Mumba defeated them by 18 points. The Titans have to realize that if they dream of winning matches, one of their raider has to score a huge Super 10. 

The first match of 2024 for the Titans will be very difficult. It has to be seen if Pawan Sehrawat is back in the team. Telegu Titans have won 6 out of their 18 encounters with the Puneri Paltan. Though they have not defeated them since season 6. This will be the most difficult match for the Titans as they are staring at another hammering from the top team of the season.

Puneri Paltan Preview

The Puneri Paltan make a rocking comeback as they roasted the Patna Pirates in their last match. They scored 46 points and won the match by a margin of 18 points. The Paltan has made a decent comeback after they had a hiccup against the Haryana Steelers earlier in the week.  Such was the intensity of their attack that they inflicted an all-out very early in the first half itself. Left corner Iranian Mohammedreza was brutal in this ankle holds which left the opposition gasping for breath. He scored a Hi 5 even though he was off the mat for almost 25 minutes in the match.

Captain Aslam Inamdar and raider Mohit Goyat scored 15 raid points together. But the day belonged to Pankaj Mohite who scored a Super 10. He displayed some acrobatic escape skills which enthralled the Puneri fans. The Puneri Paltan needs to maintain this momentum for the new-year so that they can cement their position at the top of the points table. Puneri Paltan has brewed the best recipe for the season by any team. They have a fantastic trio of raiders while their defense is super strong. As a team they have executed the highest number of successful tackles in just 7 matches. Pune has the highest average tackle points per match. Their efficiency in team raids is about 43%. The Paltan has inflicted 15 all-outs in 7 matches which is the highest among all teams. Their best move in this season has been in the inclusion of Iranian all-rounder Mohammedreza. Along with him, all the other defenders have built an impregnable wall which has seldom been breached. 

Defenders Abhinesh has been impressive apart from Sanket Sawant and Gaurav Khatri. Abhinesh scored a Hi 5 in the last match and his partnership with left corner Mohammedreza has been lethal. As the Puneri Paltan takes on the Telegu Titans, they will aim for another point-fest on the first day of the new-year. Pune has won 11 out of their 18 matches with the Telegu Titans. Pune has the ability to score big and quickly. This might be the most entertaining match of the season as Pune may cross the 60 point mark in this match.

Puneri Paltan will be ready to provide the adrenalin rush to its fans as they get ready to celebrate the new-year. Raiders Aslam, Mohit Goyat and Pankaj Mohite will run through the Telegu defense. The Paltan might take a huge lead by half-time. Defenders Mohammedreza and Gaurav Khatri will score a Hi 5 while Sanket Sawant and Abhinesh will make life difficult for the Telegu raiders. If the Paltan get a big lead, they may also try their bench strength. Defenders Badal Singh, Tushar and Dadaso Pujari may get some mat time.

If Pawan Sehrawat is not available, the Titans may become sitting ducks. Though young raiders like Robin Chaudhary and Praful Zaware will earn, but it may not be enough. Raider Rajneesh has to take the initiative in the absence of Pawan. Telegu Titans have to use the services of all-rounder S Sanjeevi. Iranian all-rounder Hamed Nader will be dangerous while the Telegu defense may just leak points through unforced errors. This looks like one way traffic for the Puneri Paltan.

Puneri Paltan will win.
