The Jaipur Pink Panthers take on the Puneri Paltan in the 96th match of the Pro Kabaddi 2022 on Wednesday, November 23, at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad.
Both sides come into this game on the back of wins against UP Yoddha and the Bengaluru Bulls respectively. It was a thumping 42-29 win for the Pink Panthers who rode on Arjun Deshwal's 19 raid points and a high five for Reza Mirbagheri. A win could take them one spot closer to the top of the points table.
Meanwhile, the Paltan edged out the Bulls in a thrilling 35-33 game to consolidate their position at the top of the points table. However, they were in control for most of the first half and shouldn't have let the Bulls mount a comeback. Their exciting raiding trio impressed yet again, with all of them picking up six points apiece.

JAI vs PUN Dream11 Team Prediction Top Picks, Pro Kabaddi 2022, Match 96
Raider - Arjun Deshwal
The in-form Arjun is the raider to get for this match. With Pune's raiding trio sharing raiding responsibilities equally, it does reduce their point potential and makes Arjun that much more enticing of an option.
Defender - Fazel Atrachali
Fazel will be itching to get back among the points after his blank against the Bulls. Expect a points haul from the Iranian.
All-Rounder - Reza Mirbagheri
Reza Mirbagheri should be full of confidence after his High Five in the previous game. He has a much higher points ceiling when compared to V Ajith Kumar, the other all-round option and is a solid pick.

JAI vs PUN Expert tips for Pro Kabaddi 2022
It's not possible to fit both Arjun Deshwal and the entire Pune raiding trio in one team. I'd make Mohit Goyat and Arjun Deshwal must-haves and take a punt on Akash Shinde and Aslam Inamdar. Also, because of the split raiding duties for Pune, Arjun Deshwal is a much better captaincy option on paper than Mohit Goyat or Aslam.
