A win against Puneri Paltan in the first game was followed up by a serious bashing at the hands of Dabang Delhi K.C. and that last match would have dented the confidence of the Steelers.
The defense was completely out of sync with each other and kept on making mistake after mistake. That is just not acceptable and any half-decent side is going to punish that.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers have been very good on the offense and the Haryana Steelers will need to work things out in their camp to avoid the same fate. The role of experienced captain, Dharmraj Cherlathan is going to be very crucial here.
The Haryana Steelers have called upon Naveen to be their lead raider this season and he has responded well. He has 21 raid points in two games and has been effective whenever he is called upon. He does not have the strongest support on the offense, though, and that may be a problem.
Jaipur Pink Panthers
Undefeated in PKL 2019 so far, the Jaipur Pink Panthers have been absolutely brilliant in the two matches they have played so far. Their wins have come against U Mumba and the Bengal Warriors, two very strong teams, and the entire must be taking note of their matches by now.
The reason behind this success has been Deepak Niwas Hooda. He has led the offense from the front and has never taken a backward step. His improvement in the last couple of seasons has been remarkable and he is now one of the best raiders in the league.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers defense is also functioning very well thanks to Sandeep Dhull and Amit Hooda. They have managed to create a zone where the opposing raiders are never at ease and always worried about making a mistake.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers have had an excellent start to their campaign and we hope they can build on that as the season progresses because this team is a fun one to watch.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers lead the head to head record against the Haryana Steelers 3-2 after six matches between the two sides. The remaining match was a tie.
It is not wise to count out the Haryana Steelers completely but the Jaipur Pink Panthers are the form side at the moment and seem likely to continue their winning streak.
Bet on the Jaipur Pink Panthers to win.
