The Jaipur Pink Panthers are on a losing streak that is threatening to end their hopes this season. The Pink Panthers have now lost their last four matches and most of them by a heavy margin of defeat. There are troubling signs for the side as the defense is struggling to stop the opposition raiders and the offense is having trouble getting the necessary points on the board.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers have the experienced Mohit Chillar leading the defense for the side. He has 16 tackle points in the tournament so far and will be very important in trying to reign in the Haryana Steelers raiding unit.
As far as the offense goes, Nitin Rawal is going to be the person leading the charge. This season has been a bit of a reakout year for Nitin Rawal whose all-round capabilities have attracted attention from the entire league. With 22 raid points in four matches, Nitin Rawal is ensuring a very hefty payday for himself whenever the next opportunity arises.
The Haryana Steelers started their Pro Kabaddi 6 season badly. They have since reshuffled some players and positions to come up with seems to be a working combination. Their win against the Patna Pirates in the last match was a very impressive example of what the team can achieve on a good night.
Naveen and Vikash Kkandola have been brilliant leading the Raiders unit for Haryana while Kuldeep Singh and Sachin Shingade have been very good on the defensive side. This match, though, is going to be won by the better raiding unit and that is where the Haryana Steelers have a big advantage.
Vikas Khandola may be just 20 years old but he already has 68 points this season including three Super 10’s. Naveen has 48 points in total and contributed regularly with tackles as well. He is another one of those players that are adding a lot of balance to the Haryana Steelers side.
The Haryana Steelers definitely have better form coming into this encounter but will remember the loss they suffered at the hands of the Pink Panthers earlier in the tournament.
The Haryana Steelers hold a slight advantage over the Jaipur Pink Panthers in head to head matches. Out of the four matches that have been played between the two sides, the Haryana Steelers have won two. The Pink Panthers have won one and the remaining match was a tie.
Current form has been a big factor in this tournament and the Haryana Steelers definitely seem to have an edge in the regard. We believe that they have settled on an effective combination and are much better prepared to face the Jaipur Pink Panthers this time around.
Back the Haryana Steelers to win.
