Predicted 7 of Jaipur Pink Panthers
#1. Amit Hooda (Right Corner)
Amit Hooda, the ankle hold specialist would definitely take his favoured right corner position. He is one of the best defenders of Pro Kabaddi League and would hope to keep his form alive in Pro Kabaddi Season 7.
#2. Deepak Hooda (Center)
Deepak Hooda is the most prominent player of Jaipur Pink Panthers. As one of the most experienced players of the league and Jaipur Pink Panthers, Deepak Hooda will have a huge responsibility on his shoulder. The all-rounder is the captain of the side and would be eager to make amends. He has played 103 matches in Pro Kabaddi League thus far and has scored 710 raid points.
#3. Sandeep Kumar Dhull (Left Corner)
Sandeep Kumar Dhull is the finest left corner defender in Jaipur team and will hence, start in that role. He was the best defender of his team in Pro Kabaddi Season 6 with 67 tackle points.
#4. Nilesh Salunkhe (Left In)
The Maharashtra born raider has been a consistent performer for Telugu Titans over the course of last 3 seasons and would hope to not disappoint his new suitors either.
#5. Deepak Narwal (Right In)
Deepak Narwal began wonderfully well, ending as the top-scorer in his debut season in Pro Kabaddi League. He helped Patna Pirates win the Pro Kabaddi title in Season 3. Jaipur Pink Panthers bought him at the price of 30.50 lakh to provide the right balance to the team.
#6. Sunil Siddhgavali (Right Cover)
Sunil Siddhgavali plays as a right cover defender and is expected to get the nod for the role. He played for Jaipur Pink Panthers in Pro Kabaddi Season 5 and 6 and was retained for Pro Kabaddi Season 7 on the back of some stellar performances.
#7. Nitin Rawal (Left Cover)
He was a revelation in Pro Kabaddi Season 5, when he made debut for Jaipur Pink Panthers. He has emerged one of the top all-rounders in the country and would be a big player this season. Predominantly a raider, Rawal adds good firepower to the defence as well. He has been among the top point-getters for his team.
The last season was a big disappointment for Jaipur Pink Panthers but this time, the team looks balanced. If these seven can keep fit and perform, Jaipur could pose a big threat to fellow teams.
