Match Prediction:
Looking at the previous games of both the teams, Jaipur Pink Panthers have an upper hand over the Haryana Steelers. Haryana side lacks quality all-rounders in their team that may add to their woes against the Pink Panthers. If we go by the squad strength and previous games’ results, Pink Panthers have won their matches due to the contribution of all the departments, especially the all-rounders. Its more about the side being in balance, where Pink Panthers have an edge. 

Predicted Starting Seven:
Haryana Steelers: Dharmaraj Cheralathan (C), Naveen, Vikas Kale, Vinay, Kuldeep Singh, Parveen, Amirhossein Mohammad Maleki
Jaipur Pink Panthers: Deepak Niwas Hooda (C), Deepak Narwal, Sandeep Kumar Dhull, Nitin Rawal, Amit Hooda, Sunil Siddhgavali, Vishal
