We are nearing the business end of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) 2018 season and that means the sides have a lot to play for and little to choose from. We are in the home stretch of the Puneri Paltan and in an inter-zone wildcard match, Puneri Paltan from Zone A will take on Telugu Titans from the zone B. It has been a tight contest in the Zone B, where only Bengaluru Bulls are guaranteed of progression.
This is the last match of the season for Pune, who have been under par once again this season. A win will help overpower some of those worries. For the Titans, this is a must-win game to stay in contention for the playoffs place.
Pune have struggled with their raiding this season, expectedly so, in the absence of Nitin Tomar. They have won just two games in his absence, as none of the raiders could rise up to the lofty standards set by Tomar. With the star player yet to recover from his injury, Pune will be without his services for this last match.
This will be the second encounter between the two sides this season. Earlier in the tournament, in Mumbai, a low-scoring encounter ended 28-25 in favour of the Titans. It was an intense game that went back and forth between the two sides. It was, however, the raiders who let Pune down. For the Titans, it was their star rider Rahul Chaudhari who sparkled with eight points.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Vishal Bharadwaj has been excellent in the tackle department, contributing more than 50 tackles this season already. With his side in a do-or-die situation, Vishal could be adding a lot of points to your fantasy team in this match.
Rahul Chaudhari has 165 points from 20 games this season, and has been an excellent addition to your fantasy team all through the season!
Nilesh Salunke has 82 points from his 16 games so far, but is one of those players who tends to be in the right place in important fixtures. With the game very crucial for their qualification hopes, Salunke could fetch some points for your fantasy team.
