Team News - UP Yoddha
Monu Goyat's Super 10 marked his return from injury and Nitesh Kumar's High Five rounded off a brilliant game for UP, albeit against a weaker Delhi side. Sumit too had a good game in the left corner with 5 tackle points. Shrikant Jadhav too had a very good game. With an opportunity to go even higher in the points table, UP are unlikely to take a risk and change their side and are expected to go in with the same team.
Predicted Starting 7: Nitesh Kumar (C), Surender Gill, Shrikanth Jadhav, Monu Goyat, Amit, Ashu Singh and Sumit.
Team News - Puneri Paltan
Pune looked very good in the raiding department with Sushant Sail, Manjeet and substitute Emad Sedhagatnia having very good games. Nitin Tomar could be rested for Emad in the last game as the Paltan will look to provide chances to other players. But in defence, no one barring Surjeet Singh did well as Sagar Krishna blanked once more. But Pune is expected to give him another chance and stay with the same defence.
Puneri Paltan: Surjeet Singh(C), Sagar Krishna, Amit Kumar, Manjeet, Nitin Tomar/Emad Sedaghatnia, Girish Ernak and Sushant Sail.
