The upcoming Inter-Zone Challenge match against the Puneri Paltan is going to be a tough test for our Yoddha, beating them is the confidence boost we need, moving forward in this VIVO ProKabaddi season. Our squad has been showing signs of improvement every game and will seek to register that much needed victory in our upcoming challenge.
Nitin Tomar of Puneri Paltan is currently leading the stats when it comes to the most raid points in the league. He is a very familiar face to our Yoddha as he used to play for our team in ProKabaddi Season 5. Our defence has practiced with him a lot in the past and will surely have something planned to stop him. Furthermore, our defence seems to keep on becoming more and more solid each match, they will surely be ready for Puneri Paltan’s raiders.
Our raiders are well-prepared and wary of Puneri Paltan’s captain and star defender Girish Maruti Ernak, who has the most tackle points in the league at this moment. Our raiders have been fairly-consistent and have had some flashes of greatness. Shrikant Jadhav’s 17-point haul against the Patna Pirates and Prashant Kumar Rai’s much needed 13 raid points against the Bengal Warriors in the dying moments that helped our comeback. The Super 10 still eludes our captain Rishank Devadiga, although to be fair to him his role is far more complicated as he has many more responsibilities compared to others. Our raiders are very capable and will surely deliver a dominating performance against the Puneri Paltan.
Our upcoming battle is a very tough but rewarding challenge, a favourable result will give a much-needed morale boost to our side as we look to make a comeback in the Zone B table rankings.
