Vikash Kandola has provided the Haryana Steelers the quality and consistency they needed in the raiding department while Dharmraj Cherlathan has helped turn the defense around. The Haryana Steelers are going to be full of confidence after handing Dabang Delhi K.C. a resounding defeat in their previous outing.
That match showed that Haryana Steelers can dominate even the best sides of the league on their day.
Vikash Kandola got another Super-10 as did Prashant Kumar Rai while Vikas Kale got a High-5 in the defense.
With Sunil and Dharmraj Cheralathan also in the defense, the Haryana Steelers have a lot of depth and are peaking at just the right time. The side will remember its 16 point defeat to the Jaipur Pink Panthers earlier this season and will be looking for revenge.
Jaipur Pink Panthers
The Jaipur Pink Panthers must be hoping that Deepak Niwas Hooda can return to his best otherwise its hopes of qualifying for the PKL semi-final stage look slim. With just 17 points in the last five matches for Deepak Niwas Hooda, the Jaipur Pink Panthers have struggled to get any sort of momentum in their attack.
The defense has been continuing to perform well but that is not enough.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers raiders must find a way of being able to get past the Haryana Steelers defense.
Sandeep Dhull is leading the defense of the Jaipur Pink panthers very nicely and should be able to give a tough challenge to Vikash Kandola. Dhull will need to be wary of committing himself a bit too early against Vikash because he is going to bat the left-corner throughout the contest.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers hold a 4-2 advantage over the Haryana Steelers in head to head encounters. One additional match has ended in a tie between them.
The Haryana Steelers are in prime form and in just the right frame of mind to take on their Pink Panthers. We think Vikash Kandola will be able to lead the Haryana Steelers to a victory against the Jaipur Pink Panthers.
Bet on Haryana Steelers to win.
