UP Yodha are done with this season as they cannot advance in the play-offs. Having won just 4 out of their 19 matches, the Yodha is placed 11th in the points table. They lost to the Haryana Steelers in their last match. This has been a forgetful season for the UP Yodha. Pardeep Narwal could not recreate the magic and Surender Gill was injured mid-season. On the other hand, the defending champions were the first to qualify for the next round. The Jaipur Pink Panthers have one of the best combinations which has helped them sail through troubled waters. MVP of season 9 Arjun Deshwal has already completed 200 points in this season. 

Though the young UP raiders like Mahipal and Gagana Gowda impressed in the last match, their defense seems to have fatigued completely. The UP defense could score just 9 tackle points out of the total 34 team points. Hence this will be a tough outing for the UP Yodha as they get ready to lock horns with the Pink Panthers. UP did defeat U Mumba last week but they could not maintain the momentum in their next 2 games. The start of a new week may not be auspicious for the Yodha.

U.P. Yoddha Preview

UP Yodha is currently placed 11th in the points table. They have won 4 out of their 19 matches. It has been one of the most forgetful seasons for the Yodha. This has been their worst result since they entered the league in 2017. They have been eliminated but still have to play their remaining 2 league games. They will be up against the defending champions Jaipur Pink Panthers. 

UP lost their last match to the Haryana Steelers. They have been able to win just 1 out of their last 5 matches. They did not have the services of Pardeep Narwal either in this match. Surender Gill is already out of contention due to a freak injury. Hence this was an opportunity for young players to display their skill. Raiders Mahipal and Gagana Gowda impressed everyone with their skills. Mahipal scored a Super 10 while Gagana scored 7 raid points. But unfortunately for the Yodha, their defense was very slippery as they could manage just 9 tackle points in the entire match. Harender Kumar who has been scratchy through the season earned a HI 5. UP conceded 3 all-outs in the entire match. Hence a recovery from this position looks quite unlikely. 

The Yodha has conceded 716 team points in this season which second to table toppers Telegu Titans. 

Their success rate in team raids slipped from a healthy 43 % to just about 35%. This has happened in the last few weeks. Their success rate in team tackles has reduced from 46% to about 38%.

They have conceded 30 all-outs in 19 matches. This has increased drastically after the injury to Surender Gill and the absence of Pardeep Narwal. With nothing much to lose now, the Yodha will use this bout to become party spoilers. Yodha has won 5 out of their 10 encounters against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Can the young UP brigade trouble the defending champions?

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

The defending champions are on the right track as they were the first team to qualify for the next round. Jaipur had a lukewarm start to the season with their raiding having issues apart from their defense being a bit lax. But everything changed after a few games as the Pink Panthers started earning heavily in both departments. 

Arjun Deshwal has 213 raid points from 164 successful raids. He has earned 13 Super 10’s which is the highest by any raider in the season. 

Defender Ankush has executed 56 successful tackles in 19 games. Ankush has scored 7 Hi 5’s which is the highest by any defender.

Jaipur defeated Dabang Delhi in their last match. This was a low scoring affairs which the Pink Panthers won by just 3 points. Even though Jaipur scored only 27 team points, Arjun Deshwal scored 10 raid points. Their defense crumbled under pressure but Jaipur maintained their composure to deny Dabang Delhi a victory. Ankush could not open his account but Captain Sunil Kumar, Reza Mirbhageri and Sahul Kumar did not relent. 

Their success rate in team tackles has improved to about 42%. Left corner Ankush was their most successful defender last year, but this season he has not been consistent. Even captain Sunil Kumar has been blowing hot and cold. Jaipur had to replace veteran defender Sahul Kumar midway. His replacement at the right corner Lucky Sharma scored 2 tackle points in a low scoring game. But Sahul Kumar has been quite devastating since his return to the starting 7.

Hence the defending champions will be under tremendous pressure with regards to their defensive strategy. The Pink Panthers have been troubled by the UP Yodha in the past. Jaipur has won 5 out of their 10 encounters in the past. The Pink Panthers can only succeed if their star raider Arjun Deshwal is able to score more a Super 10 in the match. With the UP Yodha struggling, Jaipur has a golden opportunity to win the match by a huge margin as well as prepare their players for the knock-outs.

The UP Yodha will take on the defending champions in their 20th match of the season. The Yodha has been able to win just 4 matches. This will be a tough outing for them against the Pink Panthers. UP may not have the services of Pardeep Narwal. In his absence, raiders Mahipal and Gagana Gowda will target the Pink Panthers defense which still has some weakness. Both may not score a Super 10 but they will earn enough so that the Yodha can keep up the intensity. Captain Sumit looks fatigued but defenders Ashu Singh and Harender will put up a brave fight.

But Arjun Deshwal will smash another Super 10 for the Pink Panthers. Captain Sunil Kumar, Reza Mirbhageri and Sahul Kumar will loot the Yodha in the second half. Jaipur may find it tough to score in the first half but they will cause mayhem in the UP camp in the last 20 minutes. This will be an entertaining game as the Pink Panthers will win by a huge margin.

Jaipur Pink Panthers will win.
