Preview: Puneri Paltan return to play in front of their home crowd at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune on Wednesday and will face a resurgent Haryana Steelers side, who are closing in on that third and final Playoff spot in Zone A.

Monu Goyat – Haryana Steelers
With 83 raid points in 13 appearances this campaign, Monu Goyat has played his role as Haryana Steelers’ secondary to perfection. Against Gujarat Fortunegiants’ stellar defence, Goyat scored his fourth Super 10 of the campaign and was his team’s highest top scorer, indicating that he may be hitting top form just in time for Haryana Steelers’ final stretch of the campaign. Goyat’s performance against Puneri Paltan’s high-scoring defence will be crucial in Haryana Steelers’ quest to close the gap between themselves and a Super Playoff spot.
Girish Maruti Ernak – Puneri Paltans
Puneri Paltan captain Girish Maruti Ernak has led his team by example in Pro Kabaddi Season 6. The Left Corner leads the team in tackle points with 42 and is second in assists with 23. He has also managed three Super Tackles this campaign, showcasing his brute strength and innate timing on tackles. He enjoyed a six-point night in Puneri Paltan’s last outing against Haryana Steelers and the skipper will be aiming for another big performance to end his team’s four-game winless run.
