Jaipur Pink Panthers: 11 points in 3 matches
U Mumba: 9 points in 3 matches
Jaipur Pink Panthers have rediscovered their form after a poor start to the season, thanks to Arjun Deshwal’s heroics in the raiding department. However, they still have some concerns in their defense which can be exposed against the likes of Ajith Kumar and Abhishek Singh.
Despite being lower than Jaipur in the points table right now, U Mumba will have an upper hand in this contest, especially because of their solidity in defense as they have not conceded more than 30 points in any of their 3 matches.
U Mumba win
Match 2: Haryana Steelers vs Bengaluru Bulls
Haryana Steelers: Rohit Gulia, Vikash Khandola (c), Brijendra Singh Chaudhary, Ravi Kumar, Surender Nada, Vikas Jaglan, Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsodlou, Vinay, Vikas Chillar, Hamid Mirzaei Nader, Chand Singh, Rajesh Gurjar, Ajay Ghanghas, Rajesh Narwal
Bengaluru Bulls: Pawan Kumar Sehrawat (c), Banty, Dong Geon Lee, Abolfazl Maghsodlou Mahali, Chandran Ranjit, GB More, Deepak Narwal, Amit Sheoran, Saurabh Nandal, Mohit Sehrawat, Ziaur Rahman, Mahender Singh, Mayur Jagannath Kadam, Vikas, Ankit
Haryana Steelers: 7 points in 3 matches
Bengaluru Bulls: 10 points in 3 matches
Bengaluru Bulls are now looking for an extremely solid unit in all departments, despite their captain Pawan Sehrawat not being in the best of forms. However, his 15 points performance against Bengal will give him a lot of confidence. Meanwhile, Haryana have found a new star in form of Meetu Mahender but he will have to repeat his heroics once again if they are to challenge the Bulls in this match.
Although Haryana might have a slight edge in the defensive department with the experience of Surender Nada, the Bulls are way ahead of their opponents offensively with players like Pawan Sehrawat, Chandran Ranjit in addition to Lee Dong-geon.
Bengaluru Bulls win
