Head to Head

Jaipur Pink Panthers hold a slight advantage with 5 games out of the 10 matches the teams have met. There have been two ties with Haryana Steelers winning 3 times.

Player to watch

Ajith Kumar will need to support Arjun Deshwal who has been scoring the bulk of the raid points. Ajit had been given the responsibility of raiding in the last raid ahead of Arjun in their first encounter showing how important he is to the team.

Meetu supported Manjeet in the last encounter against Tamil Talaivas playing the role of secondary raider to perfection in the defence-dominated game. Manjeet has scored more than half of the raid points and now Meetu needs to support more.

Key to Success

With the arrival of Iranian players, Haryana Steelers will have the presence of Bastami strengthening their defence. The defence in the first two games has looked good but with the right-back’s inclusion, there will be a backup and making the defence bit stronger.

Rahul Chaudhary has a good time at the National Games held recently scoring a super 10 in the finals but has not continued to perform to the same level in the PKL. On paper, the raiding of Jaipur looks great but only Arjun Deshwal and Ajith to an extent have performed. Rahul Chaudhary needs to step in and put in more raids to gain back the confidence.
