Team Analysis

Puneri Paltan

Puneri Paltan who stands second at Zone A points table got a defeat from U Mumba in their previous match. Though Nitin is their top raider, his absence has costed them. Akshay Jadhav and GB More have given some relief but Deepak’s failure is also a worry for them. The defense led by captain Girish Ernak, Sandeep Narwal, Monu, Ravi Kumar, and Rinku Narwal has been splendid for them as Puneri Paltan has scored most tackle points this season.

Telugu Titans

Telugu Titans rank the fifth at Zone B points tally. Bengal Warriors beat them in their last played match. Rahul’s late heroics did not save Telugu from loosing. Nilesh Salunke is yet to give his performance. Iranian stars Mohsen Maghsoudloujafari, Abozar Mohajermighani, and Farhad Rahimi Milaghardan have been performed for the Titans. Vishal’s replacement Krushna Madane also gave a spark of his talent. But Telugu fans will be waiting for their captain Vishal’s recovery.
