Match 39 of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2021 on Friday will see the second clash of the day between Jaipur Pink Panthers and Puneri Paltan in Bengaluru. The Pink Panthers are placed tenth with 13 points, while Puneri Paltan is languishing at the bottom of the points table with ten points.
The Jaipur franchise has a couple of wins and four losses so far and as far as the Pune side is concerned, they have as many wins and losses as their opponents this season.
Jaipur has had an on-and-off start to the season. They won 2 of their first 3 games but have since then lost 3 in a row coming into this one and find themselves at 10th in the table.
Puneri Paltan had a horrible start, as they lost 4 of their first 5 matches. They did, however, win their previous match against Gujarat Giants after making a fewchanges. Their experienced players like Rahul Chaudhari and Nitin Tomar have been replaced by Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat. The new young side will be looking to continue the winning momentum.
Deepak Niwas Hooda: Deepak Niwas Hooda is the star player for the Jaipur Pink Panthers. The all-rounder adds tremendous value to both departments. He hasnt had the best of seasons thus far as he has managed just 37 raid points and has failed to register even a single successful tackle.
Sahul Kumar: Sahul Kumar has made a thunderous entry into this Jaipur Pink Panthers side. The right corner defender has been the top defender for the side and has claimed 12 tackle points in just 5 games and will have a big role to thwart the threat of Punes sharp looking raiding unit.
Arjun Deshwal: Arjun Deshwal formed a key part of the U Mumba raiding department last season, which had no superstars and he is making the most of that experience this season. Deshwal has shown immense potential this season and has registered double-digit scores in all games thus far, securing 81 raid points thus far. He has now risen to 3rd on the loss of top-scoring raiders and has been the leader for Jaipur.
Mohit Goyat: Mohit Goyat has taken up the lead role in the absence of the star raiders in the side and the youngster has done a fine job. He has 28 raid points and has 4 tackle points to his name and will look to put in a fine show tonight.
Aslam Inamdar: In the absence of Tomar and the failure of Rahul to put up solid performances, Inamdar has stepped up and is delivering the goods for Puneri Paltan. The all-rounder has scored 29 raid points, while he has accumulated 8 tackle points. He will hold the key in this game.
Vishal Bhardwaj: Vishal Bhardwaj is a big name in PKL and after his slow start this season, he seems to have found his feet. The left-corner defender has put in some key tackles and has registered 13 tackle points thus far. He will be key against the strong Jaipur raiding department as he looks to add to his tally.
