PDP vs PNP Dream 11 Prediction Team: Heavyweights faceoff in top of the table clash to wrap up the weekdays matches in IIPKL
Ever since the Indo International Premier Kabaddi League took birth, two sides have been a testament to the saleability and tangibility that was envisioned when the tournament was conceptualised. Pune Pride and Pondicherry Predators have been everything right that was envisioned with the colossal tournament, two sides who’ve stamped their authority all over the league.
Pondicherry Predators Vs Pune Pride Best Dream 11 Team
Pune Pride in particular have been one of the most well strung together and crafted sides. Playing in their home for the first leg of the tournament, the side sit pretty on top of Zone A after having won two games on the bounce. Following up with their opening day triumph against Haryana, they held their composure in the second half to hang onto their slender lead against the Bangalore Rhinos and snatch away a 3 point win.
Elsewhere from the dramatic land of IIPKL, the Pondicherry Predators got their first points on the scoreboard in the most comprehensive of fashions. Decimating a lacklustre Heroes outfit, the Predators scored an eye grabbing 52 points with Ankit Bazzad and Sonu SSK putting a show on the attacking front as they got on raid points at will.
It’s this current form which is bound to make the Pondicherry Predators vs Pune Pride a real cracker of a match. The quality of players is unparalled and expect them to bring to the table a riveting contest of kabaddi, one where fine margins will eventually decide who emerges on the winning side.
In both the matches the Pune Pride have contested in, they’ve been a real rock at the back to restrict teams to below 40 points. Their defenders have been the real fulcrums of their side to thwart the rearguard assault tried by sides and we fully expect them to come good yet again. Jitendra Yadav is our pick from their side for this match.
We’ve decided to pick up just one defender each from either side, such is the massive raiding might of both the sides and from the Predators it’s Kuldeep who’ll be representing our team. With a total of 82 points to his name, Kuldeep reaped the rewards of an inclement show by Haryana to rake up the points
We continue picking off players from PDP and its Karmbir Thakur from their side who will bear the flag of the first all-rounder. He was reliable against HRH and we fully expect him to continue with that delectable from come Pune as well.
From Pune it will be Sandeep Kharb who will bear the brunt of battering Pondicherry down and we select him given the exquisite work ethic that he and his side can show to reach the pinnacle.
In what is set to be a marauding affair, one set to go down right to the closing minutes, picking up the raiders was a trickery proposition for us. However given how PDP’s attackers used all their relentless guile and trickery to reinvigorate the side, they should yet again use their illustrious sublime and grace to incur a bagful of points. Sonu SSK and Ankit Bazzad are out two selections from PDP.
From PNP we’ve gone with the one pick in Sheikh Abdula given how he’s been there go to man on the attacking front. With a penchant for points, expect him to be the key figure and put in a rousing performance to elevate his side towards a win.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Perhaps the toughest decision we’ve yet had to make in the game given how uncertain it is to pick a winner from this one. However, it’s Sonu SSK from PDP who gets the captaincy nod and Sheikh Abdulla from PNP whose going to be our vice-captain.
