UP Yodha will be Jaipur Pink Panthers
Tournament: Pro Kabaddi (PKL) | Venue: The Sheraton Grand Bengaluru Whitefield Hotel & Convention Centre, Bengaluru.Bet Now
Both teams will be exhausted after the “Panga” they had on Saturday. Both teams managed to steal the prey from the hunter.
A last minute instinctive bonus point helped UP Yodha to avoid a tie, as they beat Patna Pirates by just 1 points.
Jaipur Pink Panthers beat Haryana Steelers in the last match which went down the wire. Such was the intensity of the match, that it was almost impossible to predict the winner till the last raid.
Having said this, can both teams reboot and refuel themselves for the Sunday special clash.
The biggest surprise for the Pink Panthers was Arjun Deshwal who accumulated 18 points with his explosive raiding. Deepak Hooda got 10 points while the defence played its part.
Pardeep Narwal is in top form for the UP Yodha. But their biggest asset has been their defence. Captain Nitesh, Sumit and Ashu Singh look in good rhythm and can trap any raider consistently. Expect a close match again.
UP Yodha looks like a one dimensional team with Super Star Pardeep Narwal on their rolls. But in reality this team has shown the guts to perform as a team and take the match deep.
They displayed their teamwork against Patna Pirates where Pardeep had a stamp of authority in the raids, but they won the match due to their tactical brilliance. Pardeep Narwal is very well supported by Shrikant Jadhav and Surender Gill in the raiding department. The biggest asset for them is their defence with captain Nitesh Kumar handling his team very well.
Pardeep looks in great physical shape and in all the matches in this season, the opposition has not been able to find tackling solutions against him. He has been swift, agile and fluid in his approach.
If the UP defense does not falter UP Yodha are a team who can prosper this season. All rounder Gurdeep and raider Rohit Kumar also made their presence felt in the last match.
Hence with all well oiled components, UP Yodha look very dangerous.
Good support for Pardeep Narwal with Shrikant Jadhav and Surender Gill.
Strong defence gives them the edge.
Pardeep Narwal has the highest multi point raids in PKL.
Good tactical combined team performance.
Looks like the Jaipur Pink Panthers are ready to script a tale of success through hard work and determination. After tasting success in their very first season, they have not been able to replicate the same. Completely depended on their defense, they work around Deepak Niwas Hooda, Sandeep Dhull and Amit Hooda.
They reaped the benefits of including veteran defender Dharamraj Cheralathan, who helped them tide over Haryana Steelers in their last match.
Jaipur has started improving on their empty raid reducing aspect. Captain Deepak Hooda lead from the front but it was the super explosive Arjun Deshwal who collected 18 points which included 6 bonus points.
Right corner Shaul Kumar was a revelation with 4 tackle points and he looked very sharp. If Pink Panthers dream of hunting Pardeep Narwal, defenders Shaul Kumar, Cheralathan and Vishal will have to be sharp hunters.
Star All rounder Deepak Niwas Hooda with 158 points including 146 raid points.
Defender Sandeep Dhull with 73 tackle points.
Arjun Deshwal has emerged as a dependable raider.
Panthers need a balanced strategy of attack and defence.
This is going to be an episode of a Super Sunday Panga as two teams fresh from a hard fought battle clash with each other.
Pardeep Narwal is on a roll for the Yodha, Arjun Deshwal is the new kid on the block. Both teams have started stealing bonus points at regular intervals.
Jaipur have a strong and informed defence, where as the Yodha has shown variety in their raiding department.
It will be a face-off between-
Pardeep and right corner Shaul Kumar,
Arjun Deshwal and defender Sumit.
