Preview: Puneri Paltan vs Haryana Steelers
In the 6th match of Pro Kabaddi Season 7 Puneri Paltan will take on Haryana Steelers. We take a look at the talking points that will decide the match.
Rakesh vs Anup
Puneri Paltan vs Haryana Steelers will see a clash of India’s greatest players and close friends Anup Kumar and Rakesh Kumar clash against each other not in the mat but in the dugout. Anup Kumar was known as Captain Cool while Rakesh also captained India for a long period of time. It will be interesting to see whose guidance makes the most difference.
Paltans raiders vs Steelers inexperienced defence
The biggest talking point is how Haryana Steelers cope with the raiding might of the Puneri Paltan. Haryana were the worst defensive team in PKL 6 with their inexperienced defence making needless errors consistently. Will the experienced Cheralathan’s acquisition make any difference to a defence which is more or less same and will face the likes of Nitin Tomar and Manjeet will go a long way in deciding the outcome of the match.
Surjeet and Girish vs Vikash Khandola and Naveen
Haryana Steelers possess quality raiders in Vikash Khandola and Naveen but Puneri Paltan also have 2 quality defenders to stop them in right cover Surjeet and left corner Girish Ernak. But Puneri Paltan have an inexperienced right corner (Shubham Shinde) and left cover (Sandeep). How they cope with left raider Vikash will decide Pune’s fortunes.
