The big battle

Deepak Niwas Hooda vs Sandeep Narwal

Deepak Niwas Hooda has been absolutely brilliant for Jaipur Pink Panthers in their last few matches. He has scored 54 of his 84 raid points in the last five matches including all four of his Super 10s this season. He is still the only Jaipur Pink Panthers player to get a Super 10 this season and the onus will be on him to lead his team’s offence against a Puneri Paltan defence that has specialized in Super Tackles.

Sandeep Narwal has come alive in Puneri Paltan’s last five games, being the team’s leading defender. He has managed to score 14 tackle points in this period including three Super Tackles. Having rediscovered his mojo, Puneri Paltan will look upto him to lead their defence against a strong Jaipur Pink Panthers offence.

Hooda leads their head-to-head duels 10-5 over the history of VIVO Pro Kabaddi and the left Raider will look to add more points to his kitty against the Right Corner as two of VIVO Pro Kabaddi’s premier all-rounders clash.

Key Khiladi

Ajinkya Pawar - Jaipur Pink Panthers

The youngster has been in some brilliant form for his side, outperforming the likes of skipper Anup Kumar. Having grabbed his chances with both hands, Jaipur Pink Panthers will want to see another strong performance from him as they look to beat Puneri Paltan to continue their superior record over them.

Ravi Kumar - Puneri Paltan

Ravi Kumar has managed the most number of Super Tackles this season with 6 and is rightly called the Super Tackle specialist. He will be up against a strong Jaipur Pink Panthers offence which features the likes of Hooda, Anup and Pawar so it’s a tag that he will need to live up to on Friday.
