Up Yoddha starting 7 predictions for PKL 9
Up Yoddhas, is the only team to continue with their last season’s Coach & Captain in season 9 also. Yes, you read it right, Up retained their captain Nitesh Kumar and the coach Jasveer Singh for PKL season 9, the duo will leave no stone unturned this season to win their maiden PKL trophy. The Veteran Cover Defender and former Up yoddhas player Jeeva Kumar will be seen in a new role as he has been appointed as the team’s assistant coach for PKL 9. Up yoddhas did a great job while making the retentions as they retained Nitesh Kumar, Ashu Singh, Sumit Sangwan and Surender Gill for PKL season 9. The retained “FAB 4” were outstanding in Season 8.
Up didn’t have to bother much in the auction as their primary target was to get back the Dubki king Pardeep Narwal into the squad and they succeeded in the act.
Nitin Tomar, Jaideep and the Iranian powerhouse Abozar Mighani were some of the big names included in the squad from the auction.
Up Yoddha starting 7 predictions for PKL 9 Raiders –
Talking about the raiding department, the evolution of Surender Gill as a complete raider has boosted a lot of confidence in the team & provided much-needed support to Pardeep in raiding. It would be a challenging season for Nitin Tomar as he will be making his comeback for Up after a gap of 3 seasons. The team is looking balanced on paper and we can expect some miracles from them in season 9.
The raiding department will be led by Pardeep alongside Surender Gill, The emerging raider from Karnataka Rathan K and a bunch of young guns like Durgesh Netam, Anil Chaudhari and Rohit Tomar will be eyeing to leave a substantial impact if given the chance.
If Pardeep could deliver his Season 5-6 Form this season Up can easily win the title as the team is looking well settled in other departments.
Up Yoddha starting 7 predictions for PKL 9 Defender –
The team has picked the talented all-rounder from Goa Nehal Desai from the auction who looked promising in the 69th senior nationals. Nitin Panwar and Gurdeep Sangwan are the other two all-around options for the side.
Talking about the defence the team has managed to retain their core defenders like the corner pair of Nitesh & Sumit and the Cover pair of Ashu and Shubham. Abozar Mighani would be a solid backup available in the absence of Nitesh while Jaideep can play as a left corner in the place of Sumit.
The best starting seven for UP would be
RAIDERS: Pardeep Narwal, Surender Gill and Nitin Tomar
DEFENDERS: Nitesh Kumar, Sumit Sangwan, Ashu Singh & Shubham.
