It’s Haryana Vs Jaipur today, which i expect can be a high scoring game considering the number of quality raiders in action from both sides.
Haryana after thrashing Gujarat has struggled badly, as i said in my preview against UMumba that this defending unit is one of the weakest among all the teams. Even though Kuldeep got 7 tackle points in his very first game, as i said they have struggled & have badly missed Nada.
Coming to today’s game, Jaipur are also coming after a defeat against a very strong UMumba side but have still looked pretty balanced even without their star raider Deepak Hooda’s off day.
But a player of Hooda’s caliber doesn’t disappoint everyday. Trio of Hooda, Nitin Rawal & captain cool Anup has the ability to get the better of Haryana’s weak defence.
Goyat on the other hand, couldn’t show his magic yet. He’s taking too much of pressure of captaincy & also the fact that his team is not able to revive him is a huge concern for them.
In the last game alone, Goyat was on bench for more than 17 minutes.
Probable Starting 7:
Goyat (C), Shingade, Kuldeep, Khandola, Naveen, Sunil, Mayur.
Anup (C), Hooda, Chillar, Dhull, Hodage, Rawal, Young/Selvam
*Selvamani (if fit) will come straight into the starting 7 but as there’s no news of his fitness & he wasn’t included as a sub in the last game, the chances of his participation his very low.
*Amit Jr who made a significant contribution in the last game coming as a substitute will again be drafted into the later part of the game replacing any non performing player.
As i have said multiple times earlier, i don’t have much confidence on Haryana’s defense so i’ll pick maximum raiding options from Jaipur.
Anup isn’t the same player anymore when it comes to picking touch points & doesn’t even raid that much but still there’s nobody as good as him when it comes to picking bonus points.
No matter how badly Monu has performed till now but we all know how good a player he is, so i’m backing the birthday boy to perform today.
Had to drop Khandola in this team but have covered all three raiders from Jaipur:
Had to drop captain cool in this team for Khandola:
*If you want to pick any defender from Haryana then you can pick Sunil or Kuldeep.
*If you play with only one team, you can go with Team1.
