Haryana Steelers v Jaipur Pink Panthers Dream11 Kabaddi Prediction today: Fantasy Kabaddi tips
In today's opening encounter, an in-form Haryana Steelers outfit will be taking on the Jaipur Pink Panthers in the 84th fixture of Pro Kabaddi 2019 at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Indoor Stadium in Kolkata.
The Steelers have enjoyed a terrific run of form in the second half of this season and have remained unbeaten in their last five games as they stand in 4th place on the points table with 9 wins from 13 matches.
The Pink Panthers, on the other hand, have endured a dip in their performance as the Deepak Niwas Hooda-led side have finished on the losing side from their last four matches and will be itching to pick up a much-needed win from this encounter.
A win from this clash could see the Haryana Steelers jump up two places to occupy the 2nd place on the points table while a victory for the Pink Panthers will take them to the 5th position.
The two teams have already squared off once this season in a game that saw a 14-point effort from Deepak Hooda and a High 5 from Sandeep Dhull lead the Pink Panthers to a massive 37-21 win.
With the Steelers looking to settle scores and make an important move up the ladder, we could expect an exhilarating match on the cards.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Team News
The Pink Panthers have struggled to stitch together individual performances to bring about a win and have constantly tried to tinker with the team combinations. With Deepak Narwal unable to make an impact from the last three games, Ajinkya Pawar's pace on the mat could be a good addition in place of Narwal.
Right corner Amit Hooda was also rested for the last game against Dabang Delhi and could come back into the side as a replacement for Elavarasan.
Predicted Starting 7: Deepak Niwas Hooda (C), Nitin Rawal, Ajinkya Pawar, Sandeep Dhull, Amit Hooda, Pavan TR, Santhapanaselvam.
Dream11 Fantasy Tips
Raiders: The raiding duo of Vikash Kandola and Prashanth Kumar Rai has worked out extremely well for the Haryana Steelers this season and will be a feature to look out for during the match against Jaipur. Kandola, in particular, has 100 points from just 10 games and will hold the key for the Steelers.
On the raiding front for the Pink Panthers, Ajinkya Pawar makes for a wise choice, given his ability to pinch a couple of crucial points throughout the game.
All-Rounders: Two of the most important members of the Pink Panthers side this season, Deepak Niwas Hooda and Nitin Rawal are must-have picks in this fantasy side, given their ability to consistently bring about raid points in the last few games.
Defenders: Two impressive corner defenders are picked for this side, one from each team. Steelers' Dharmaraj Cheralathan has 32 points from 13 games this season and has particularly been impressive in the last two games with 9 points to his name while Sandeep Dhull has had a top season, with 45 points from 13 games, including three High 5s.
One can expect these two to do well in this encounter, given the need for them to contribute to their team's win from this game.
