As expected UP Yodha were off to a good start as they beat the Jaipur Pink Panthers in their first game of the season, but life has been tough for the Yodha. After 8 games it finds itself at the 8th spot in the points table. They haven’t done badly but their hard work has not converted into results. UP Yodha has missed the knock out punch in a few games which they should have won. Earlier in the week they lost the Patna Pirates in a hard fought game. They did compensate for this loss by beating the Telegu Titans in their next game. But it will be a tough ask for the Yodha as they take on the inform Puneri Paltan.
The Puneri is living its dream as it has found the mantra for success, TEAMWORK. They have not lost any of their last 5 games and this displays their consistency. The Paltan works on momentum and with their new found intensity, they will be hard to beat. They were forced to settle for a TIE against a resurgent Haryana Steelers but that was a good call for them. Sharing points was a better option than to lose the game. The Paltan then went on to beat the defending champions. This was a convincing victory which will help the Paltan take on the Yodha with a lot of self-belief.
Both teams are loaded with good raiders and lethal defenders. This will be another entertaining contest of season 9.
UP Yodha are placed 8th in the points table but this does not showcase the kind of hard work the team has put in. They haven’t played badly but it is also true that the Yodha has not been able to convert its efforts into results. Hence they have been a bit inconsistent through this season. They had a tough game against the Patna Pirates which they lost by a margin of just 5 points. The major concern was that the Yodha could score just 3 tackle points in the second half and they got all-out twice in the second half which took the match away from them.
This drop in intensity has hurt the Yodha which has played its heart out. "Dubki King" Pardeep Narwal has reinvented himself this season and he is scoring at will. Raiders Surender Gill and Rohit Tomar have contributed handsomely in most game. The Yodha has one of the best defenders of the season, Sumit. He has executed 29 successful tackles which has resulted in him scoring 2 Hi 5’s.
Captain Nitesh too has started delivering while right cover Ashu Singh has been consistent. The Yodha is missing a good right corner. They have tried to fill this spot with all-rounder Gurdeep and Niting Panwar but it has not yielded results. They need to introduce “Hulk” Abozar Meghani in that right corner to bring in the X factor. UP Yodha has lost a few games due to unforced errors or drop in intensity at crucial moments especially in the second half. They have to repair the damage and plug the leaks urgently.
As a unit the Yodha has a success percentage of about 42 in conducting raids.
They also have an average of 9.5 successful team tackles per match.
What is missing is the killer punch!!!!!
The Yodha has a good record against the Puneri Paltan as they have beaten them 5 out of 8 times they have met. The Yodha also beat the Paltan in the 1st eliminator of season 8. But times have changed and so have things for both teams. While the Yodha is struggling, the Paltan is enjoying a dream run. It will be a tough ask for the Yodha to beat the Paltan this time.
The Puneri Paltan has turned out to be one of the strongest team of the season. They have won 4 out of their last 5 games and are placed 2nd in the points table behind the Bengaluru Bulls. The return of Fazel Attrachali has helped them convert themselves into a dominating unit.
Young raiders Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat have escaped from the most dangerous clutches of opposite teams. They have done this consistently as both have scored 6 Super 10’s in 8 games. Though Aslam Inamdar was rested for the last game against Dabang Delhi, it was raider Akash Shinde who seized the opportunity and scored 13 raid points apart from 13 earned by Mohit Goyat. In a high scoring game, the Puneri defense kept their cool and did not allow Naveen Express and other Dabang raiders to earn too many raid points. The turning point in the match was when the Puneri defense got Dabang all-out twice in the first half and once again in the second half. That was the difference between the teams and of course in the result as the Paltan executed its plans precisely.
The Puneri Paltan has executed 150 successful team raids along with 76 successful team tackles.
They have also executed 6 Super tackles and 4 Super raids.
The Paltan has inflicted 12 all-outs in 9 games while conceding 9.
This has helped the Puneri Paltan to win games easily. They did struggle against the Haryana Steelers but very intelligently settled for a TIE. Later they tricked Dabang Delhi into submission.
The Paltan will be looking for revenge against the UP Yodha who are struggling. The Paltan lost to the Yodha once during the league in season 8 and later in the eliminator. This will be a golden chance for the Paltan to dominate the Yodha and strangle them.
Welcome to another exciting contest at the PKL as two young sides clash. The Puneri Paltan is overflowing with confidence while the UP Yodha is struggling to convert their hard work into results.
The defense of UP Yodha will be under tremendous pressure in this game. Left corner Sumit will need some support from Captain Nitesh as well as the right cover. Yodha may introduce Iranian Abozar Meghani in this match. Yodha needs to win this game desperately. Hence Surender Gill will turn this around by sharing the scoring burden along with Pardeep Narwal.
The Puneri Paltan will unleash their trio of raiders on the Yodha. Aslam, Mohit and Akash will dominate the UP defense. Fazel Attrachali and Sombir will be the pillars of the Puneri defense. Defenders Sanket Sawant and Nabibaksh will overpower either Pardeep or Surender in this match.
This will be a difficult match for the Yodha.
