PUN vs HYD Dream11 : Bottom of the league standings, Telegu Titans and Puneri Paltan look to revive their season as either head out in dire search of a win
For both of our opponents today, the seventh edition of Pro Kabaddi League is slowly turning out to be a predicament. With a mere 6 wins in between them from the 20 contests played, the three apiece, Telegu Titans and Puneri Paltan find themselves occupying 10th and 11h place respectively in the league standings.
And as we get ready to wrap up the first phase of the ongoing edition of the league, for one side the precarious predicament only promises to worsen today. With both these sides in colossal need of a win which has kept evading them, expect either outfit to come hot out of the blocks in Friday’s opening encounter, a clash which is set to be a cracker of a fixture.
What will immensely buoy Telugu Titans before making an advent into the imminent encounter though is their win over the mighty Jaipur Pink Panthers recently, an unprecedented result for the outfit. With their raiding department finally stepping up to the mantle, the side were able to decimate one of the most stellar outfits this season, a result they’ll be looking to resonate today as well.
Elsewhere, Puneri Paltan were yet again on the wrong side of results after the side failed to defeat U.P. Yoddha in their last outing, a result which leaves them just one point above Patna Pirates who are occupying last place with 20 points. Up against a resurgent Telegu Titans side, Puneri Paltan know they’ll have to punch above their weight and throw the kitchen sink and more at their opponents if they are to have any chance of winning today.

PUN vs HYD Match Prediction
One of the most evenly contested clash in the league with the 12 matches seeing the 6 wins for Telegu Titans and the 5 more Puneri Paltan along with the 1 draw, today’s clash promises to stay true to traditions. They margins for a win in this one will be extremely small, with either side needing to capitalise on the slightest bit of slip up by their opponent.
Telegu Titans should win this one courtesy of their raiding unit, one which has showed enough glimpses of what it is capable of when functioning at 100% capacity.

PUN vs HYD Dream11 Defenders
If Puneri Paltan are to have a chance of winning this one, they’ll need heir dwindling defence to put in a staunch performance and profligate their way to articulate tackles and body holds. And despite the side struggling to do so, Surjeet Singh ahs continued to wage a lone battle, coming up with effortless ankle and thigh holds to amass 26 points till now.
Elsewhere we have also picked out Telugu Titans’ top scorer, Vishal Bhardwaj for this one. He endured a torrid time in the league when it began but as we have slowly traversed in the league, his travels of putting in pristine tackles have left the opposition in tatters.
PUN vs HYD Dream11 All-Rounders
His side’s top raider with 47 raid points in 10 matches, Manjeet was the first name on our mind in this facet. In a season where his side have kept trying to find answers in the raiding department, persistently changing players, Manjeet has stayed a constant. Up against a defence which is not known for its stringent quality, we envision Manjeet putting in another exquisite show.
We are also choosing Telugu Titans’ Farhad Milaghardan for this one. He has started coming up with invaluable contributions in defence for his side along with being a viable name to send in for do or die raids and situations of all outs.
PUN vs HYD Dream11 Raiders
This season’s most expensive raider Siddharth Desai endured a shambolic outing in the first 5 matches of the league, failing to put in any performance of worth, one that saw his side struggle massively. However over the course of the last couple of matches, he’s put in some good raids, scoring 71 points in 10 matches to come into our side.
We have also opted for Siddharth Desai from the side while with 40 raid points, we have brought in Pankaj Mohite from the other side, someone who has assisted Manjeet perfectly till now in pulling off successful raids at crucial junctures.
PUN vs HYD Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Siddharth is our captain for this one while Manjeet is picked out as the vice-captain.
