PKL 2022: Determined UP Yoddhas take on Jaipur Pink Panthers in search of fourth consecutive win

The
UP
Yoddhas
with
45
points,
are
currently
placed
fourth
in
the
league
standings,
while
the
Jaipur
Pink
Panthers
are
three
points
ahead
and
just
above
them
at
number
three.

The
two
sides
last
clashed
with
each
other
in
the
inaugural
match
of
the
ongoing
season,
where
the
UP
Yoddhas
triumphed
34-32.
Surender
Gill
(9)
was
the
highest
scorer
of
the
match,
followed
by
Arjun
Deshwal
(8)
of
the
Jaipur
Pink
Panthers.
The
UP
Yoddhas’ defense
unit
of
Ashu
Singh,
Nitesh
Kumar
and
Sumit
had
also
played
a
pivotal
role
in
their
team’s
win
in
that
match.

In
a
total
of
eight
encounters
so
far
between
them,
the
UP
Yoddhas
have
defeated
the
Jaipur
Pink
Panthers
on
five
occasions.

Ahead
of
the
clash,
Jasvir
Singh,
Head
coach,
UP
Yoddhas,
said,
“My
boys
have
played
some
outstanding
Kabaddi
in
the
last
few
games.
We
had
a
difficult
phase
in
between
this
season
but
we
did
not
let
go
off
our
plans
and
strategy
and
were
always
full
of
hope.
We
have
come
back
stronger
and
our
hard-work
has
paid
off
and
this
is
what
I
have
always
believed
in,
no
matter
what
the
results.
I
am
confident
in
my
team
in
the
remaining
games
as
well.”

All
eyes
would
be
on
the
lethal
UP
Yoddhas
raider
Pardeep
Narwal,
who
was
sensational
in
the
last
match
against
Dabang
Delhi
KC,
earning
as
many
as
22
points
all
by
himself.
He
has
had
as
many
as
Six
Super
Raids
in
the
season
so
far
and
is
placed
second
on
the
individual
Super
Raid
stats
table,
followed
by
his
teammate
Surender
Gill,
who
also
shares
the
same
number
of
Super
Raids.

The
consistent
Gill
is
also
placed
number
four
in
the
Super
10s
standings
having
earned
eight
of
them
so
far
from
the
13
matches
that
he
has
featured
in.

The
Jaipur
Pink
Panthers,
who
are
also
on
the
cusp
of
a
hat-trick
of
wins,
will
be
wary
of
the
star
raiding
duo
of
the
UP
Yoddhas.

The
match
will
be
broadcast
LIVE
on
Star
Sports
Network
and
can
be
streamed
LIVE
on
Disney
Hotstar
on
November
19,
2022,
from
07:30
p.m.
(IST)
onwards.
