Here are our previews for Day 16.

Match 38: Puneri Paltan vs Jaipur Pink Panthers

Puneri Paltan have looked a completely different unit after their captain Fazel Atrachali joined the team having missed the team’s earlier matches. The Paltans have three wins, two losses and a tie from their six matches so far. Aslam Inamdar has been in sublime form for them and is their lead raider with 55 raid points in six games. He has been well supported by Mohit Goyat who has scored 38 raid points and Akash Shinde also chipped in with 15 raid points. In defence, Fazel Atrachali has been the pick of the defenders for Puneri Paltan with 15 tackle points, while Sombir and Gaurav Khatri scored nine and eight tackle points respectively. 

Jaipur Pink Panthers, on the other hand, have been one of the most complete sides in vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9 so far with five wins and a loss. With 65 raid points to his name, Arjun Deshwal has once again been the Panthers’ best raider this season. Rahul Chaudhari has started to look like his old self and has notched up 20 raid points. V Ajith Kumar has scored 19 raid points and will look to produce an impressive performance. Defensively, the Panthers have got the likes of Sunil Kumar and Ankush who have scored 23 and 21 tackle points respectively. Sahul Kumar has also scored 14 tackle points, seven of which came in his last game. 

Puneri Paltan vs Jaipur Pink Panthers head-to-head

Puneri Paltan and Jaipur Pink Panthers have faced each other in 18 matches. Out of which, Puneri Paltan have won six matches while Jaipur Pink Panthers have won 10 matches. Two matches ended in ties.

Match 39: Telugu Titans vs Haryana Steelers

Telugu Titans have plenty of work to do as they are sitting at the bottom of the points table with a win and five losses. The Titans have lacked firepower in raiding and players like Siddharth Desai, Vinay and Monu Goyat are not in the best form at the moment. Both Desai and Vinay have scored 30 raid points each while Monu has scored 27 raid points. This raiding trio will have to up their offensive game if the Titans are to start winning. On the defensive front, Surjeet Singh and Vishal Bhardwaj have been their top defenders with 10 and nine tackle points respectively. Parvesh Bhainswal is also an important player in defence for Telugu Titans and has managed six tackle points thus far.

Meanwhile, Haryana Steelers will be eager to get a victory having secured just two wins and suffered four losses in six games. Meetu Sharma and Manjeet have been the driving forces in the raiding department for Haryana Steelers with 45 and 44 raid points respectively but they will hope for more help from the likes of Vinay, K. Prapanjan and all-rounder Nitin Rawal. As far as their defence goes, Jaideep Dahiya and Mohit Nandal have been their top performers with 17 and 16 tackle points respectively. All-rounder Nitin Rawal is their next best contributor in defence with 10 tackle points, while Manjeet has also chipped in with seven tackle points.
