Puneri Paltan 40-50 U.P. Yoddha

Dominance! Absolute dominance from the U.P. Yoddha and they have absolutely decimated the Puneri Paltan. Spare a thought for Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat. The Pune duo raided their heart out and have 13 and 16 points to their names respectively. However, their defence has let them down severely. For every one point that their raiders got towards the end, the defence would end up leaking two, which has prevented Pune from taking even a single point from this contest. 

At the half-time mark, one would have expected the match to be a close one but Surinder Gill's belligerent run in the second half has completely blown away the Paltan. 21 points for Surender Gill while Pardeep Narwal notched up his second Super 10 on the trot. Their defence was much better as compared to the Pune side and they rightfully deserve the win. 
40' Narwal runs down the clock and Vishal Bharadwaj goes for a block. Narwal turns and attempts to escape but the left-in defender puts in a back hold and uses a wrestling move to turn Narwal around and pin him down.

Right then, the Puneri Paltan, after a slow start to their campaign, have two-match winning streak. They find themselves placed tenth in the points table with 21 points to their name, which includes four wins and five losses from the nine fixtures that they have been a part of. The Paltan have won three out of the last five encounters and will be coming into this match on the back of a thumping 19-point win over season two champions U Mumba. The Paltan will rely on Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat to do the bulk of the scoring in the raiding department. Vishal Bhardwaj and Abinesh Nadarajan have been in good touch so far and will be looking to make a significant contribution tonight as well.

The U.P. Yoddha, on the other hand, are placed sixth in the points table with 28 points to their name. Despite having the same points as U Mumba, they are placed higher in the points table courtesy of a superior Points Difference. U.P. Yoddha are on a three match undefeated streak and will be looking to extend that further when they take on the Puneri Paltan in this match. Pardeep Narwal, Surender Gill and Shrikant Jadhav will handle the rading responsibilities for the Yoddha. Sumit and Nitesh Kumar have been the defenders in form for U.P. and the Paltan raiders will be wary of them.
