It has been more misses than hits for the Puneri Paltan in the Vivo Pro Kabaddi League so far but the side has the potential to perform well. Last season they finished fourth in Zone A after injuries marred their campaign. They had started well but finished the season with only 8 wins which is never enough for a team that wants to make it to the play-off. They have gambled big in the auction roping in new faces and letting go of the old. It will be interesting to see whether the gamble pays off. The Puneri Paltans have their base in SSCS Complex in Balewadi, Pune. Meanwhile, you can also check the complete schedule timetable of VIVO Pro Kabaddi League 2019 for free download in PDF format.
Nitin Tomar was the star in the raiding department for Pune last season and he will likely be the key this season too. In defender Girish Ernak, Pune have a trustworthy player that can win them plenty of points throughout the campaign. The addition of Surjit Singh, Pawan Kumar, and Darshan Kadian adds a lot of firepower. They will be coached by one of the faces of Indian kabaddi, Anup Kumar and the former Indian skipper can work wonders with the players.
