In match number 84 of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 7, dominant Haryana Steelers will lock horns with Jaipur Pink Panthers on Wednesday, September 11 at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in Kolkata. Haryana Steelers are coming from five consecutive wins in and would be looking to continue the winning momentum. Steelers hammered table toppers Dabang Delhi in their previous game. Vikash Kandola 97 raid points in 10 games have been their top raider and have been creating a lot of trouble in the opposition’s defense with his agility. Vinay has picked up 53 points in 13 games.
Haryana Steelers and Jaipur Pink Panthers are two teams with profoundly different forms, and they will meet each other in the 85th match of Pro Kabaddi season 7. Haryana is on a 5-match winning streak whereas Jaipur has lost their last four games. Haryana has been top-notch so far. The fact that they have scored 40 points in 3 consecutive matches speaks volumes about this team. Their best raider, Vikas Khandola completed a century of points this season in the previous game. He has six super 10s, and his raids have a success rate.
In the first half of the tournament, Naveen and Vinay served as very efficient support raiders for this team. But in the previous few games, Prashant Kumar Rai has stepped up to provide the Steelers with a massive boost. His game has allowed Vikas Khandola to free his arms. The trio of Vikas Kale, Sunil, and Ravi Kumar have also fetched valuable tackle points for the team. And the ever-young Dharmaraj Cheralthan has led this pack well. Nilesh Salunkhe and Nitin Rawal have been good, but both are long overdue for a super 10. They must stretch themselves a bit more to reduce the pressure on Deepak Hooda. Defenders Sandeep Dhull and Santhapanaselvam have been the positives for Jaipur. Sandeep is the 4th best defender this season with 44 tackle points. But this defense will feel the pressure when Vikas Khandola and Prashant Rai attack in tandem.
