Team News - UP Yoddha
The Yoddha simply didn't have the defensive resilience to stop the raiding prowess of Naveen Kumar and while Amit, Sumit and Nitesh Kumar did do a decent job getting 9 tackle points between them, they made far too many errors for them to retain their momentum for long. No changes are expected in the defense of this side.
Monu Goyat was brilliant with 10 points while Shrikanth Jadhav and Surender Gill got just 1 raid point between them. Rishank Devadiga was in sublime form and contributed 6 raid points from the bench without getting tackled and can replace Surender Gill.
Predicted Starting 7: Nitesh Kumar (C), Monu Goyat, Shrikanth Jadhav, Rishank Devadiga, Amit, Ashu Singh, and Sumit.
Team News - Puneri Paltan
Pune looked a very balanced side against the Bulls despite Nitin Tomar's poor outing and young Manjeet stepped up from the raiding front getting as Amit Kumar NYP came from the bench to score 5 points. No changes are expected in the raiding unit.
In defense, Jadhav Balasaheb Shahaji got 5 tackle points to his name while skipper Surjeet Singh got 6 tackle points and was brilliant. Sagar Krishna could be replaced by Girish Ernak if he's fit for this game.
Puneri Paltan: Surjeet Singh (C), Girish Maruti Ernak/ Sagar Krishna, Nitin Tomar, Manjeet, Amit Kumar, Jadhav Shahaji and Hadi Tajik.
Dream 11 Fantasy Tips
Raiders: Nitin Tomar and Monu Goyat are must-haves when it comes to the raiders while Shrikanth Jadhav and Amit Kumar provide decent alternatives as well.
All-Rounders: Rishank Devadiga and Manjeet are the standout options when it comes to the all-rounders and only those two should be considered due to the uncertainty over the other players starting games.
Defenders: Sumit, Nitesh Kumar, Surjeet Singh, and Girish Ernak are all premium options although the latter's fitness is still in doubt. Players like Jadhav Shahaji and Ashu Singh can help ease out budget while Amit is a good option as well.
