PKL 2022: Selection headaches aplenty for Puneri Paltan captain Fazel Atrachali

Despite
missing
star
raiders
Aslam
Inamdar
and
Mohit
Goyat,
Puneri
Paltan
put
up
an
inspiring
performance
to
defeat
Patna
Pirates
44-30
on
Monday
(December
5)
and
confirmed
a
direct
entry
into
the
last
four
of
PKL
Season
9.

The
Pune
captain
Atrachali
expressed
that
all
players
in
the
Puneri
camp
being
in
form
could
be
a
problem
for
him
heading
into
the
crucial
stage
of
the
tournament.

“We
have
a
lot
of
good
players
in
our
team
such
as
Pankaj
Mohite,
Akash
Shinde
and
Mohammad
Nabibakhsh.
We
will
face
a
problem
of
plenty
when
we
select
our
team
for
the
semi-finals
because
everyone
is
playing
well,”
Atrachali
said.

In
the
absence
of
star
raiders
Mohit
Goyat
and
Aslam
Inamdar,
Mohammad
Nabibakhsh
performed
brilliantly
against
Patna,
racking
up
8
raid
points
in
the
match.
And
the
Sultan
was
full
of
praise
for
his
compatriot,
who
has
been
restricted
in
the
raiding
department.

“When
we
had
Akash,
Mohit
and
Aslam,
I
asked
Nabibakhsh
to
focus
more
on
defense.
But
with
Mohit
and
Aslam
not
there,
Nabi
has
got
the
chance
to
effect
more
raids
for
the
team,”
Atrachali
added.

“If
Nabi
played
for
another
team,
he
would’ve
scored
7-8
raid
points
in
every
match,
but
we
have
too
many
good
raiders
in
our
team,
so
Nabi
doesn’t
get
a
lot
of
chances
to
raid.”

The
Puneri
Paltan
will
next
be
in
action
against
UP
Yoddhas
in
their
final
league
phase
match
on
Friday
(December
9),
when
they
will
get
a
chance
to
rest
their
players
and
test
the
bench
strength
once
again
with
semi-finals
spot
already
sealed.

Pune,
who
have
not
won
the
PKL
title
so
far,
will
play
their
semifinal
on
December
15.
So,
the
head
coach
BC
Ramesh
was
happy
about
the
fact
that
the
players
will
get
a
five-day
break
before
their
last
four
clash.

“Nabi
supported
Akash
and
Pankaj
very
well.
The
team
played
with
patience
against
Patna.
I
am
very
happy
that
the
team
has
reached
the
Semi-Finals.
We
wanted
to
give
the
players
a
bit
of
a
breather
and
that’s
why
it’s
great
that
we
have
qualified
for
the
Semis
directly,”
BC
Ramesh
said.
