PKL Season 6: Wounded Jaipur Pink Panthers to be challenged by Haryana Steelers
After a break of one day, two exciting matches are lined up today at Pro Kabaddi League. This season has become the most unpredictable one. The inaugural champions Jaipur Pink Panthers will be up against the Haryana Steelers in the first encounter. Later on, the home team UP Yoddha who have not found a single win at their home turf will play against Telugu Titans.
Jaipur Pink Panthers
Jaipur has won only one match and has lost five matches. Skipper Anup Kumar, all-rounder Deepak Hooda still have not picked the momentum. Their defense that consists the likes of Mohit Chhillar, Sandeep Dhull, and Bajirao Hodage have not given a performance with full coordination. In their last match against Gujarat Fortunegaints, Korean Young Chang Ko showcased his defensive skills and scored a High 5. All-rounder Nitin Rawal has been splendid, but no support for him is a big worry for Jaipur.
Having played 9 matches so far in the campaign Haryana Steelers have been successful in winning only 3 matches. Haryana captain Monu Goyat is not in a great form like he had in season 5. Vikash Khandola and Naveen both have given a consistent performance for the team. Kuldeep Singh is proving himself as a satisfied replacement of Surender Nada who ruled out for the whole season due to an injury. They beat Patna Pirates in Patna with a huge margin of 11 points. So their morale will be high.
Head To Head
4 matches have been played between these two teams. Jaipur Pink Panthers has won two matches, Gujarat Fortunegiants has won one match and one match between them was drawn.
Mohit Chhillar VS Vikash Khandola
Jaipur’s right corner Mohit Chhillar has 16 tackle points from 6 matches in his tally. Though his stats are not so impressive Mohit with his game has an ability to strike a terror in the heart of even experienced raider. He will face Haryana’s new sensation Vikash Khandola. Vikash has been strike raider for the Steelers with having 68 raid points from 9 games. This rivalry will legit set the mat on fire.
Nitin Rawal, Jaipur Pink Panthers
Having 26 points from just 4 games Nitin’s all-round skills have helped Jaipur in staying in the game for many occasions. When last times these teams clashed with each other Nitin had 8 raid points and 3 tackle points and managed to clinch a victory over Haryana. His all-round show can prove to be significant for Jaipur today.
Naveen, Haryana Steelers
Young Naveen has 38 raid points to his name from 8 matches. Naveen had a great match against Jaipur at Haryana leg where he scored 15 raid points and 2 tackle points. His Haryana team will expect the same performance from him as his contribution will be lethal to Haryana.
