Haryana Steelers will face the Jaipur Pink Panthers for the fifth time in Vivo Pro Kabaddi history at the Tau Devilal Sports Complex in Panchkula. Talking about the past meetings, it's all square with both teams having won two matches each while one game ended in a tie. For Dhaakad Boys, this will be the third time they will face the Jaipur Pink Panthers this season itself.
The Dhaakad Boys showed great fighting spirit in their last game against the Gujarat Fortune Giants. While Monu Goyat scored a Super 10, Naveen and Vikash were effective as well. Vikash, who had scored 10 points the last time these two teams met, would look to get maximum points once again and support his in-form captain. Monu Goyat has scored five Super 10s in the last five matches played, meaning his form is excellent at the moment. The defense however, has been a worry for the team from Haryana, which has cost them some matches as well. If the defense puts a rock-solid performance against Jaipur Pink Panthers, accompanied by some fine raiding from the trio of Monu, Vikash and Naveen, a victory won’t be out of the grasp for the Dhaakad Boys.
Haryana Steelers would certainly look to win both of their remaining matches and end the season on a positive note. Having said that, it won’t be easy against Jaipur Pink Panthers, who would be eager to get some wins under their belt in their home leg, which assures a riveting contest.
