Deepak Hooda: Deepak Hooda has been the go to man in terms of raiding. He has been their main raider in the matches and sometimes single handedly won them the game. His speed, touches and ability to escape the defenders has been quite brilliant this season which has obviously benefited the Paltans.
Sandeep Narwal: Sandeep Narwal is an all rounder and he has also been pivotal for the Pune side. He is like a beast in the court and his dash, block and sometimes the lethal angle hold has curtailed the opposition raiders, which also shows in the average tackle points per match tally for the Paltans. In defense, Narwal has been well deputed by Girish Ernak, the left corner.
Rajesh Mondal: Initially missing due to some injury problems, Rajesh Mondal has mixed in the groove and now is an integral part of the Puneri line up. He was often branded as the Do or Die specialist in his previous clubs, this season it has been rather more of a second raider task for the Bengal born player. And so far he has brought 31 points in the Do or Die raids.
