Match Analysis

Nitin Tomar continued to rack up the points for Puneri Paltan as he scored 13 in their loss against the Gujarat Fortunegiants. Tomar is fast approaching Ajay Thakur as the leading scorer of this year and needs just five points to get past him. We think he has an excellent chance of achieving that in this game.

While Tomar is the undisputed star of this team, the contributions of the Girish Maruti Ernak led defense cannot be underestimated. Ravi Kumar, Shubham Shinde, and Vinod Kumar have been very good for Puneri Paltan. They are going to have their hands full trying to keep the Jaipur Pink Panthers at bay, though.

The Jaipur Pink Panthers started their campaign against a relentless U Mumba side but then came back very strongly against the Haryana Steelers. Skipper Anup Kumar leads the raiding unit but it has been the all-rounders in Pune that have been making the difference in the games so far.

Both Nitin Rawal and Deepak Hooda have been contributing on both sides of the mat scoring points and making brilliant tackles to shut down the opposition offense as well. Interestingly, Anup Kumar is just two points away from totaling 500 points in Pro Kabaddi.

The most startling transformation has been of Nitin Rawal who until recently was thought of as a defender. Now that he has started scoring points, he is being spoken of a potential world-class all-rounder.

Key stat

Puneri Paltan will be a little wary going into this encounter. They have only managed to win four matches out of the seven they have played against the Jaipur Pink Panthers so far. After 11 matches the record stands at 6-4 in favor of the Pink Panthers with one tie.

Verdict

Puneri Paltan is playing at home and has displayed the kind of game needed to go very far in this tournament. The Jaipur Pink Panthers is a well-rounded side with plenty of depth in all aspects of the game.

There are no obvious weaknesses in either side which can be seen as a disadvantage. Strategy outside the mat will be very important in this game and that is perhaps where the Jaipur Pink Panthers might gain an advantage.

Back the Jaipur Pink Panthers to win.
