PKL 10: UP Yoddhas Predicted Playing 7 vs Bengal Warriors, Can They Move Up The Points Table?

The U.P. Yoddhas, who placed fourth in the points standings the previous season, have struggled to get off to a good start this time around. With 12 points, they are ranked sixth in the standings after suffering two losses and winning two games. They have an incredible +40 point differential, which may come in helpful in the competition's closing stages.

The U.P. Yoddhas did not participate much in the auction because they had already kept their core and had primarily used the money to hire Vijay Malik, for whom the management paid an incredible INR 85 lakh. See who else, besides Vijay Malik and Pardeep Narwal, will be in the U.P. Yoddas starting seven versus the Bengal Warriors at Shree Shiv Chattrapati Sports Complex, Pune:

1. Center: Pardeep Narwal

Pardeep Narwal's PKL season got off to the worst possible start when he was unable to record any points in the opening game. Pardeep has been really in touch and hasn't looked back since that contest. In the previous game, he scored 13 raid points.


2. Left Cover: Gurdeep

After playing Harendra in this position in the initial few matches, the management shifted to Gurdeep who has not disappointed at all. He has played really well in the left cover position and also scored three tackle points in the last match. Gurdeep will be a key player in this match as well.

3. Right Cover: Nitin Panwar

This U.P. Yoddhas team will have all-rounder Nitin Panwar playing the position of right-back defender. He already has three defensive points to his credit this season and is being paid INR 13 lakh. Panwar did not manage to score any points in the previous game.

4. Left Corner: Sumit

The U.P. Yoddhas club kept the seasoned and Category A defender Sumit because they understood how important it was to have a strong left corner defender on the field. Sumit was unable to record any tackle points during the Bengaluru Bulls game.

5. Right Corner: Nitesh Kumar

The U.P. Yoddhas will start Nitesh Kumar, one of the most well-known and elite defenders in the Pro Kabaddi League, at the right corner position. Only two tackle points were scored by Nitesh Kumar in the previous game.

6. Left In: Surender Gill

Surender Gill, who is most likely the tallest player in the Pro Kabaddi League, will be a left raider for the U.P. Yoddhas franchise in PKL 10. With 42 raid points in just 4 games, Surender Gill has eclipsed Pardeep Narwal as the team's greatest raider this year.


7. Right In: Vijay Malik

This year, the most costly purchase made by the U.P. Yoddhas at the auction, Vijay Malik, is a right-in defender and the team's third raider. In the last game, Vijay Malik scored six raid points and did a great job contributing.

Predicted Starting 7 of the U.P. Yoddhas against the Haryana Steelers: Pardeep Narwal (c), Gurdeep, Nitin Panwar, Sumit, Nitesh Kumar, Surender Gill, and Vijay Malik. The U.P. Yoddhas will be keen on beating the Bengal Warriors in this match to get the crucial five points against their name.
