Jaipur Pink Panthers VS Puneri Paltan Preview

Inaugural champions Jaipur Pinks Panthers reached the final with the 49-29 demolition of Bengaluru Bulls in the semifinal 1, while Puneri Paltan edged Tamil Thalaivas 39-37 in the semifinal 2 to reach their first-ever summit clash.

Both Jaipur Pink Panthers and Puneri Paltan will depend on their all-round team effort to land the title. Jaipur, who won the title in season 1, will aim for their second title, while Paltans aim for their maiden Pro Kabaddi title.

Jaipur will depend on Arjun Deshwal, who is the leading raider in the current season with 290 points. Arjun will hope for support from raider Ajith Kumar V, who was the star in the semis and Rahul Chaudhari in their battle against the Pune defence.

In defence, Jaipur will look up to Sahul Kumar, who also starred alongside Ajith in the victory over Thalaivas. Sahul will be supported by the likes of the season’s best defender Ankush, Sunil Kumar, Reza Mirbagheri and Abhishek KS.

Puneri Paltan, on the other hand, will have variety of options in the raiding department with the likes of Akash Shinde and Pankaj Mohite, who was the star that stepped up in the absence of Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat. They will also have Mohammad Nabibakhsh to help in revival.

The Paltan defence will be led by the Sultan Fazel Atrachali, who will be joined by the likes of Abinesh Nadarajan, Sombir, Sanket Sawant and Gaurav Khatri, who made an impact in the semifinals.

Jaipur Pink Panthers VS Puneri Paltan Prediction

It will be a closely contested battle as it’s a clash for the title and the match between the top two sides of PKL 2022.

But Jaipur Pink Panthers despite losing their league phase matches against Puneri Paltan will be slight favourites due to the presence of the top raider of the season Arjun Deshwal and the best defender of the season Ankush in their ranks.

However, Deshwal will be up against the best defender PKL has ever seen in Fazel Atrachali, who can keep the star raider on the bench. The match will be won on fine margins and the best defence on the night will clinch the title.
