JAI vs PUN Dream11 : Jaipur Pink Panthers look to recover from their first defeat of the campaign when they square off against a reinvigorated Puneri Paltan side
A week long hiatus for Jaipur Pink Panthers finally comes to an end with the side set to face off against Puneri Paltan in the league’s only encounter of the day. Seeing their four match successive winning run being finally curtailed by Dabang Delhi K.C., snatching from them the stature of being the only unbeaten side in PKL 7, Jaipur Pink Panthers will be looking to return with a clinical win today.
Suffering a 35-24 defeat against Delhi that day, Jaipur saw themselves being outplayed in all departments of the game for the first time in this edition of the marquee league. And today’s match against Puneri Paltan is not only an opportunity for the outfit to resume normal service but also ensure that the previous result was a onetime result.
Elsewhere finally snapping free of a howler of a run, Puneri Paltan have been resurgent over the course of their last two matches to infuse fresh breath into their season. Having defeated Gujarat Fortunegiants and Patna Pirates over the course of their recent encounters, Puneri Paltan will be looking to continue their resurgence come today and pull off what would be a massive result against one of the most complete outfits in the league.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for JAI vs PUN Dream11
Given the incredible perusal of raiders both the side posses in their kitty, this match is going to be decided by the better and more efficient attacking outfit. This sees us opt for just two defenders, the one from either side with us picking up stalwarts from both the outfits as we make an advent into this one with safe picks.
Sandeep Kumar Dhull is our selection from Jaipur while from Puneri Paltan we are going ahead with Girish Maruti Ernak. With 15 tackle points, he has the most number of tackles for his side and if Shubham Shinde can improve in the right corner position, Puneri Paltan can help realise their dreams of another win today.
All-Rounders for JAI vs PUN Dream11
Despite being an integral raider for his side and being included into the playing 7 as a specialist raider first, Manjeet’s emergence as a defender has massively impressed in this edition. The Paltan’s all-rounder has a massive 12 tackling points to his name, coming up with some well cued running ankle holds and jumps to stall raiders in their pursuit for points.
From Jaipur Pink Panthers we have included their highest raid points amasser Deepak Niwas Hooda for this one. He had a dismal time against Delhi but has scored good points across the league and should put on a good raiding display today as well.
Raiders for JAI vs PUN Dream11
They ended up losing to Delhi in their previous encounter but what would have given Puneri Paltan immense confidence from that performance would have been the 20 raiding points they managed to amass from that 33-30 defeat. It was an incredible raiding show by them, one which saw their entire raiding unit stand up in unison and traverse past the opposition with will.
With 23 points in four matches and a price tag of just 11.5 credits, Pankaj Mohite is our first pick from the side. He’s been used as a substitute mostly but given his consistent showings could end up starting this encounter in the playing 7. Nitin Tomar comes in as well after registering 8 points in 12 raids in the previous encounter, one which saw three raiders pick up more than five points for the side.
Elsewhere from Jaipur we have opted for Deepak Narwal, their highest raider in the previous match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have chosen Manjeet as our captain for today while Deepak Niwas Hooda is selected as our vice-captain.
