After being winless in their first three games of the season, Puneri Paltan climbed up the standings pretty quickly following two successive wins. Aslam Inamdar has been the team’s main raider with 50 raid points so far, while Mohit Goyat has been their secondary raider and has done well to score 35 raid points. Akash Shinde has been Puneri Paltan’s third best attacker in terms of scoring points with 13 raid points. On the defensive side, Puneri Paltan’s defenders seem to be coming into their own with Fazel Atrachali marshalling the troops. The Iranian has been the team’s top defender with nine tackle points, while Gaurav Khatri has accounted for eight tackle points. Mohit Goyat, Badal Singh and Mohammad Nabibakhsh have also scored five tackle points each for the team.
Bengal Warriors, on the other hand, will be eager to bounce back after a loss to Jaipur Pink Panthers in their last game. The Warriors captain Maninder Singh had a quiet outing against the Panthers but he’s still been the team’s standout raider this season with 43 raid points. Maninder has been well supported by Shrikant Jadhav, who has amassed 30 raid points in Season 9, but they need more help from all-rounders Deepak Hooda and Manoj Gowda, both of whom haven’t managed to produce their best in attack yet. On the defensive front, Girish Maruti Ernak has been the pick of their tacklers with 20 tackle points, while Vaibhav Garje and Shubham Shinde have accounted for 12 and 11 tackle points respectively.
