Match Analysis

We called for a big game from Monu Goyat before the last game and the Haryana Steelers captain provided that. He ended up scoring 15 points but was let down by the performance of the rest of his teammates.

Neveen, who had played so well against the Jaipur Pink Panthers could not sustain that level of performance, while Vikash Khandola, Wazir Singh, and the defenders were unable to contribute anything of note either.

The Haryana Steelers have the players they need to do well in this competition. This continued failure to perform on the mat, though, leads us to believe that they are not getting the right kind of strategic advice or have not come together as a unit this season.

The team cannot expect to do well unless all of its players are pulling together in the same direction.

Dabang Delhi K.C is undefeated in this competition and has a good chance of continuing that streak as it takes on the Haryana Steelers. It is notable that at this stage in the competition, only U Muma is unbeaten apart from Delhi.

Dabang Delhi K.C’s success has been built upon the form of its two main raiders, Chandran Ranjit and Naveen Kumar. Both of these two players have scored plenty of points in the games played so far and set up their side for success.

It also helps when the defense of the side is manned by players such as Joginder Narwal, Vishal Mane, and Ravindar Pahal. There are going to be no easy points scored for the Haryana Steelers in this match either and there is a very good opportunity for Delhi to try and shut down any kind of momentum that the faltering Haryana attack unit tries to build up.

Strategically also the Dabang Delhi K.C has been superior in its execution and utilization of resources.

While it does seem at first glance that the Haryana Steelers have much more to work with, both in the starting lineup and the bench, it is going to be of no use if they are going to be outfoxed by a nimbler opponent.

Key stat

Three matches played between these two sides and three wins for the Haryana Steelers. This is exactly what the Steelers would be concentrating on and reminding their own players. Dabang Delhi K.C. is a side that has struggled in Pro Kabaddi history but things may be about to change.

Verdict

Dabang Delhi K.C. is definitely a pretty strong unit this year. On paper, the Haryana Steelers match the Delhi side for talent and maybe even has more of it's at its disposal. Current form though is firmly in favor of Delhi and that is what will make the difference in our opinion.

Back Dabang Delhi K.C. to win.
