Dabang Delhi K.C.
Naveen Kumar equaled the all-time Pro Kabaddi League record of the most consecutive Super-10’s in the previous match and will now be looking to break it and stand on his own. The man whose record he is trying to beat is Pardeep Narwal ironically.
Naveen Kumar’s eight consecutive Super-10’s have helped Dabang Delhi K.C. win eight out of their ten matches so far (they also have a tie to their name). It is not like Dabang Delhi K.C. only has to depend on him for their raid points, though.
Players like Chandran Ranjit and Meraj Sheykh have been pulling their eight in recent matches and we can expect them to get more raiding opportunities as Dabang Delhi K.C. to pull away from the trailing pack.
Joginder Narwal has been absolutely sensational in the defense next to Vishal Mane and Ravinder Pahal on the other corner. There are very few weaknesses in this Dabang Delhi K.C. side and they will be looking to keep the winning momentum going.
A complete breakdown of the Patna Pirates offense seems to have slammed the breaks on their PKL 2019 season. Pardeep Narwal is the lone fighter for the PTna Pirates at this point in time and even though he has been getting his share of the raid points, he has not been able to win matches for the Patna Pirates.
The lack of support from Jang Kun Lee and Mohammad Esmaeil Maghsoudou was unexpected and it seems that the Patna Pirates have no plan B to fall back upon. Maybe being aggressive and giving Maghsoudlou the lead raider mantle may help change things around because something drastic needs to be done.
The defense is led by Jaideep, who has also suffered a dip in form in recent matches. pLayers like Monu, Jaideep, Hadi Oshtorak, and Neeraj Kumar will have to work very hard to be able to stop the Dabang Delhi K.C. raiding unit.
Things are bleak right now for the Patna Pirates and if they manage to win this match then it could be considered as the upset of the PKL 2019 so far.
History is not on the Dabang Delhi K.C. side when they take on Patna Pirates. They have only won two out of the ten matches that they have played against the Patna Pirates with one tie thrown in their as well.
The Patna Pirates can hope to take some inspiration from the seven wins they have recorded against Dabang Delhi K.C.
Picking Dabang Delhi K.C. is an easy choice in this match. Pro Kabaddi League matches are always close and nothing should be taken for granted, however, this contest as one-sided as things can get.
Bet on Dabang Delhi K.C. to win.
