Jaipur Pink Panthers have 62 points from 21 matches and that might not enough to guarantee a Top 6 finish. They will definitely need a tie at least (depending on other results) to be in the reckoning for a playoff spot.
Hooda scored a Super 10 (11 points) in a win that will help Jaipur in the race for a Playoff spot and top-6 finish. He was supported well by the Panthers’ defence.
Over the course of the past few days, fans have been treated to some thrilling matches and some stunning individual performances.
Multiple tackles and an ALL OUT in the dying minutes ensured a great night of kabaddi at The Sheraton Grand, Whitefield, Bengaluru.
Inamdar and Goyat combined to help Pune clinch the game’s first ‘All Out’ close to the 10th minute but Yoddha immediately clawed their way back.
The second game of the night will feature Telugu Titans, who are yet to register a win this season, and defending champions Bengal Warriors.
Vijay scored 11 points for the Delhi team, but 5 of his total came in the last 2 raids that helped the Season 7 finalists escape with a win.
Delhi have looked a disjointed unit in the absence of their star raider Naveen Kumar and will need to organise their defence against the impressive raiding trio of Haryana.
Patna goes into the match on a 6-match unbeaten streak, but Jaipur will be equally confident after halting Delhi’s run in their previous match.
There was not a single change in the top 4 of the raiders’ leaderboard. U Mumba’s vice-captain Abhishek Singh has returned to the fifth position after scoring eight raid points against Patna Pirates.
The player auctions for the season were conducted on August 29th – 31st, 2021 in Mumbai. Keeping the health and safety of the players and all stakeholders in mind, this year the league will be held without spectators, at a single venue in Bengaluru, moving away from the traditional caravan format.
The Haryana Steelers also bolstered their overseas player contingent on Tuesday night when they bagged Iranian players Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsodlou (raider) and Hamid Mirzaei Nader (all-rounder) for Rs 13.2 lakh and Rs 12.1 lakh respectively.
The ‘UP Yoddha’ bought Narwal on Monday, the second day of the PKL auction for the upcoming season 8, which will take place in December.
All the injured were hospitalised. Of them, five or six suffered fractures. The severity of the injuries sustained by the others was yet to be known, the police said. The collapse was apparently due to the weak structure made of wood and other materials.
Delhi have a slight advantage over Bengal in terms of tackle strike rates (38% and 37% respectively).
U.P. Yoddha will look to continue their winning momentum in the home leg when they meet Telugu Titans in their third match of the Greater Noida leg.
Bengal’s both raiding and defensive units have been consistent throughout the season with their performance. Tamil Thalaivas did not perform well in this season as of now.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers hunted the Haryana Steelers 37-21 when these two sides met last this season. However, things have changed now and Steelers are the favorite going to the contest.
Rohit Baliyan returned to the U Mumba squad in the last game and performed brilliantly. He is likely to start once again.
