PUN vs HAR Dream11 : Haryana Steelers look to continue their ascendancy in PKL 7 as they head out with aspirations of top 3 today when they lock heads against Puneri Paltan
Haryana Steelers have to be massively lauded for their resurgence in Pro Kabaddi League 7. After ending the previous campaign in the trenches of the league standings, PKL 7 threatened to unravel in similar fashion for the side as they were toyed around with by their opponents in the opening exchanges of the season.
It’s what makes their incredible turnaround even more impressive with the side finding themselves in fifth place at the moment, with an astounding 7 wins from 11 matches haven taken them all the way to 36 points. It’s been an incredible journey for the outfit who have not only unlocked their true potential but have shown the consistency needed to emerge as true contenders for the glistening trophy.
With a win against Gujarat Fortunegiants in their kitty in the last outing for the side, the team will be looking to emulate that clinical showing when they face off against Puneri Paltan in the opening match of a new week in PKL. Up against a side who have failed to wrench out of the impasse of inconsistency, Gujarat will be quietly confident of defeating a side placed in 10th in the league, having won just 4 times, the same as the number of deflates for Haryana.
However having defeated Telugu Titans in their previous encounter, the side will be looking to build on the momentum garnered from that encounter and make it two wins on the bounce today as they eye a revival in the season. Expect them to make things jittery from Haryana today, a narrative which should enthral us in a riveting fixture.

PUN vs HAR Match Prediction
Despite having defeated Haryana Steelers the previous time these two sides had met in PKL 7, we don’t see Puneri Paltan winning this one. Things have changed massively since that encounter with this Steelers outfit imbedding a culture of excellence in their raiding facet. They should canter their way dutifully to another win today and move into third place.

Dream 11 Picks
PUN vs HAR Dream11 Defenders
The side’s most successful defender with 23 tackle points in 11 matches, Dharmaraj Cheralathan is our pick from Haryana Steelers over here. The side have started regaining form as a defensive unit, helping ease pressure of their raiding segment with well articulated and crafted tackles, blocks and body holds.
Elsewhere we have gone in with Jadhav Balasaheb Shahaji from Pun, someone whose recent form and ability to stall raiders from putting in raids makes him a good option.
PUN vs HAR Dream11 All-Rounders
With 55 raid points in 11 encounters, Manjeet has taken the entire brunt of his side’s raiding soirees, putting in impeccable super raids and do or die raids despite getting little assistance from the rest of his unit. He’s going to have to rise to the occasion today as well if his side are to profligate any chances of serenading a win on the night and we envision him putting on a good showing today as well.
We are also getting in Sagar Krishna from the side here.
PUN vs HAR Dream11 Raiders
Ever since Vikash Khandola has returned to his side’s setup, the raider has been the focal point of everything successful Haryana Steelers have done. The raider has been in exquisite touch, plundering in raids at will to amass a colossal 76 points in 8 matches, making him come into our side straightaway.
He’s started getting immaculate service from Vinay who accompanies him for this one while from the opposition we are selecting Nitin Tomar.
PUN vs HAR Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Vikash is our side’s captain for this one while we have opted for Vinay as the vice-captain.
