Two teams struggling in the bottom half of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 7 will be in focus in match #40. Wednesday will witness UP Yoddha (tenth, 16 points) take on Haryana Steelers (ninth, 16 points) in Ahmedabad. Haryana have played one match less than their opponent.
Both the teams are coming off wins over defending Champions Bengaluru Bulls in their last match. They are shaping up at the right moment and hence look good to make this a memorable game.
UP Yoddha Preview
It is the raiding department that helped UP get over the line against Bengaluru. Led by Shrikanth Jadhav and Monu Goyat, the side kept the Bulls under check. Even young defender Sumit contributed his worth to the win. Overall, it was an impressive win for the Yoddha.
If you are looking for smart fantasy picks, look no further than the two raiders. Both Srikanth and Monu were in their elements against Bengaluru. Surender Gill couldn’t contribute much with his raiding and could get the boot. Keep an eye on the young Sumit in the corners, who is shaping up nicely.
Haryana Steelers Preview
Even for the Steelers, it was their raiders who led them to victory against Bengaluru. Vikash Khandola and Vikas Kale managed to steal the show for the Steelers. Prashant Kumar Rai continues to be sidelined with injury, though. That could be a slight bumper for coach Rakesh Kumar’s plans.
Naveen could continue to be in the side and might be a good dark horse pick. As for the defence, Dharmaraj Cheralathan continues to be a strong presence. Keep an eye on him to balance your picks.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Monu Goyat has 28 raid points this season and is slowing gaining his top form. The raider is a must have in your fantasy side.
Shrikant Jadhav has 21 raid points so far. His raid strike rate of 29% seems a tad low, but his form has been improving. Expect him to come up with the goods.
Vikash Khandola continues to be among the points. He now has 28 raid points from just three matches. His selection is a no-brainer for your side.
