Dream 11 Picks
With 36 tackle points in 12 matches, we had to opt for the services of Baldev Singh. He’s been a solid performer across his stay in the league and with Puneri Paltan vulnerable to putting up inconsistent displays at times, he could end up registering some good points for us today.
From Puneri Paltan although we wanted their leading defender Surjeet Singh for this one, we were unable to work him with his price tag, seeing us opt for the consistent and in form Jadhav Balasaheb Shahaji instead. He’s been a dependable player for the side recently, dashing and lunging at raiders at just the right moment and with adequate force to pick up tackle points for his side.
Puneri Paltan’s highest raiding points accumulator and undoubtedly their most valuable player as well, all-rounder Manjeet was the first name we had on our minds when we were building out this segment of our side. While he has 62 raiding points, he registered four tackles in the previous match as well, the highest of any player to showcase the overall nature of his game.
From the opposition we are choosing Mohammad Esmaeil-Nabibaksh, someone who is challenging Manjeet and pushing him all the way for the title of best all-rounder in game and is the fulcrum of the Bengal Warriors’ side.
With 52 raid points from just 10 matches, Pankaj Mohite has been tremendous for his side, picking up raid points for Puneri Paltan effortlessly. He will need to take the accountably of a strong showing yet again and we envision him living upto the standards he has built for himself.
Elsewhere from the other side we have gotten in their leading raider and overall fourth highest scoring raider with a stunning 104 points in his artillery, Maninder Singh for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Manjeet has been selected as our side’s captain for today while Maninder is stuck with as the vice-captain pick.
