Finishing last in the first two seasons and sixth in the last season, Puneri Paltans have had a poor run in all six editions of the tournament, something they will hope to change this time around. Their first match is
against Haryana Steelers on July 22 in Hyderabad. Puneri Paltans is coached by Anup Kumar. After deciding to overhaul the team, the franchise did not retain any player from the last season. They have bought raider Nitin Tomar, the most expensive buy at Rs 1.2 crore, along with Manjeet Dahiya, Darshan Kadian, and Emad Sedaghat Nia.
