The Bengal Warriors put in a clinical display against the Patna Pirates and whizzed past them to confirm their place in the Super Playoffs of Pro Kabaddi 6. That win was secured thanks to a brilliant display of raiding by Maninder Kumar and some exceptional defensive play.
Maninder Singh inched closer to 200 points for the season with a Super-10 in his last match. It was a good raiding performance not only because of the technique that Maninder Singh displayed but also the pressure he was under. Maninder knew it was going to be him or Pardeep Narwal that influences this match and he ensured it was his side that went back happy.
Of course, Maninder Singh was helped by having a brilliant defensive team to support him. PO Surjeet Singh, Ran Singh, and Ziaur Rahman all strangled the Patna Pirates offense to leave the result of the match in no doubt whatsoever.
These three will have a tough ask against Dabang Delhi K.C. as well who have three raiders in excellent form. There is a chance that the Bengal Warriors rests Ran Singh or Ziaur Rahman and gives its bench strength a go even as Dabang Delhi looks to get back Naveen Kumar to full health.
Dabang Delhi K.C. registered a very hard fought tie in the last game against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. They did not play Naveen Kumar and depended on Meraj Sheykh and Chandran Ranjit to get them the points and the raiders did not disappoint.
Dabang Delhi K.C once again built up a solid lead before their defenders made some mistakes and let the opposition back in the game. Dabang Delhi K.C. also rested some defenders from its starting lineup which could have resulted in a slight dip in performance.
We hope that Delhi plays its best lineup for this match since the next time they take the mat it will be a Super Playoff match. The team needs to get all of its cogs working in perfect sync and be at full strength.
If they do that, then the evidence suggests they will be tough to stop.
Dabang Delhi K.C. has lost just one match in its last six matches while the Bengal Warriors are on a three-match winning streak. Both the sides have built up good momentum coming into this match.
The Bengal Warriors have just qualified for the Super playoffs and would probably feel a sense of relief at this moment. This is why we feel they could take things a little easy against Dabang Delhi K.C because a loss is not going to hurt them and they still have an additional two matches to get its final combination in place.
Dabang Delhi K.C., on the other hand, is going to be playing its last group match and would want to go into the Super Playoffs with a win.
Back Dabang Delhi K.C. to win.
