Jaipur Pink Panthers
Things can change around suddenly in the PKL as the Jaipur Pink Panthers are finding out. They were dominant at the start of the tournament and were considered as a sure-shot to qualify for the semi-finals. Now, it looks difficult to see where their next win is going to come from.
A complete loss of form by Deepak Niwas Hooda has exposed the problems he was covering up for the offense. He has been kept quiet for the last few matches and needs to rediscover his form. The task is not going to be easy against an in-form Dabang Delhi K.C. side, though.
Deepak Narwa and Ajinkya Pawar also need to step up and share some of the load in sharing the offense.
Sandeep Dhull was left red-faced the last time he came across the Dabang Delhi K.C. offense. As the leader of the Jaipur Pink Panthers defense, Sandeep Dhull must come up with a better answer this time around. Amit Hooda can be relied upon to provide some solid support in the defense as well.
Dabang Delhi K.C.
There is no side in the PKL that has shown the consistency or quality that Dabang Delhi K.C. has. Naveen Kumar has nine consecutive Super-10’s in PKL 2019 already and who is to say he will stop in this game? Chandran Ranjit can be a lead raider in his own right and is superb as the secondary raider of the side. Meraj Sheykh has also hit good form and is an added weapon in difficult situations.
While the offense of Dabang Delhi K.C. was well known, it is the success of Ravinder Pahal and Joginder Singh that has been the icing on the cake. The two senior-pros are in prime form and are ensuring that there are no easy points against Dabang Delhi K.C.
It is going to be very difficult to stop the Dabang Delhi K.C. side in this match.
The Jaipur Pink Panthers hold a small 7-6 lead in the head to head matches against Dabang Delhi K.C. There have been two additional ties between these two teams as well. The most recent match, earlier this season, was won convincingly by Dabang Delhi K.C. who comes into this match with a 7 match winning streak.
We think Dabang Delhi K.C. is going to win this match comfortably. Complacency seems to be the biggest threat to it right now and this is where the senior players must lead the way.
Bet on Dabang Delhi K.C. to win.
