The long season has taken a toll on the Bengal Warriors are they find themselves at the 10th spot in the points table. They have won just 6 out of their 16 matches. Bengal has lost 3 consecutive matches in the last week. They lost to the Haryana Steelers in their last outing. Dabang Delhi have made steady progress in the season even though superstar Naveen Kumar underwent surgery for this injury. Delhi defeated the UP Yodha in their last match as they have moved to the 3rd spot in the points table. 

The Bengal Warriors have missed out on the killer punch in most of their games. Even though their raiders earned against the Haryana Steelers, their defense could not rise to the occasion. With just 6 victories in the season, the journey could well end in this phase for the Warriors. They lost to Dabang Delhi on 25th December 2023 by a margin of 9 points. Dabang Delhi are on the upswing with some consistent performances. Hence Captain Ashu Malik will hope to continue the trend against the lackluster Bengal Warriors.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Former champions Dabang Delhi have been on the upswing since the last couple of weeks. After the freak injury to Naveen Kumar, they did wobble a bit. But young captain Ashu Malik has taken the responsibility to guide his team past troubled waters. Ashu has the best strike rate for any raider in the season. He has earned 168 raid points in 144 successful raids. Though he started late in the season, Ashu has overtaken the best of the best. Currently placed 3rd in the points table, Dabang Delhi have won 3 consecutive matches. They will take on the Bengal Warriors whom they met in the finals of season 7.

Dabang Delhi defeated the UP Yodha in their last match. Ashu Malik scored a Super 10 while defender Yogesh scored a Hi 5. Veteran defender Vishal Bharadwaj was on song with 3 tackle points while left cover Vikrant scored another 3 points. They will be up against familiar opponents, the Bengal Warriors. With an inexperienced defense, it will be an uphill task for Dabang Delhi to trap mighty Maninder Singh. 

Delhi has a success rate in team tackles has improved from a mere 31% to almost 40%. This is the major reason for their comeback after Naveen Kumar was injured. 

Their efficiency in team raids is about 42% which is the best among all the teams. This is because of the high strike rate of Ashu Malik who has been quick and relentless with this raiding. 

Dabang Delhi have inflicted 23 all-outs in 16 matches while they have conceded just 16.

Delhi has always given a tough fight to the Bengal Warriors. They have forced a TIE in 4 games out of their 20 matches. But Delhi could not beat the Warriors last year. Fortunately Dabang Delhi had a wonderful outing against the Bengal Warriors. Delhi scripted a 9 point victory over Bengal in their first meeting of season 10. This will be another opportunity for Dabang Delhi to score a quick victory so as to bolster their position in the points table.

Bengal Warriors Preview

The Bengal Warriors have lost a lot in the last couple of weeks. So much has been the damage that they find themselves at the 10th spot in the points table. They have lost 3 consecutive matches. The Bengal Warriors could not forge a perfect partnership in this season. Maninder Singh has been in superlative form. He has earned 146 raid points from 113 successful raids which includes 7 Super 10’s and 4 Super raids. Maninder has surprised the opposition on most occasion with his daring antics which usually come in the second half. Apart from raider Srikant Jadhav, Nitin Kumar has emerged as a dangerous customer. Both Srikant and Nitin have complemented Maninder resulting in the Bengal Warriors scoring at an efficiency of 17.5 successful raids per match.

Right corner Shubham Shinde has been deadly with his tackles with 51 successful tackles in 16 matches. But individual performances do not win you matches. The Bengal Warriors have leaked points via all-outs and breakdowns. Bengal has conceded 25 all-outs this season while inflicting just 19.

They lost a tough match to the Haryana Steelers. Though Maninder Singh scored a Super 10 and Srikant Jadhav along with Nitin Kumar added another 16 raid points, the Bengal Warriors could not match their opponents. They led by 2 points at half-time but suffered 2 crucial all-outs in the second half to gift the match to the Haryana Steelers. This has been the story of the Warriors. They have won just 6 out of their 16 matches. Out of the 8 matches that they have lost, Bengal Warriors should have won at least 4. But due to such tactical blunders and breakdowns, the former champions are almost out of the race for play-off’s. 

Bengal Warriors have won 8 out their 20 encounters with Dabang Delhi. Both teams are tenacious and don’t give up easily. That’s the reason they have TIED 4 out of their 20 matches. The Warriors lost to Dabang Delhi in their first meeting of season 10. Since then, Bengal has lost a lot of intensity as they look frail and disoriented. Can the former champions give their fans one last moment of joy as they did in the finals of season 7?

Contest of former champions looks quite lop-sided. Dabang Delhi are in cruise control as they have on their last 3 matches convincingly. Captain Ashu Malik is in top form as he will score another Super 10. Support raiders Meetu Sharma and Manjeet will earn enough to add to this tally. The young Delhi defense has been impressive with some sting added by veteran Vishal Bharadwaj. Right corner Yogesh will be ruthless as he will target Bengal raider Maninder Singh. Defenders Vikrant and Mohit too will complement and assist. 

Bengal Warriors will start with a bang as Maninder Singh will score a Super 10. Srikant Jadhav and Nitin will earn handsomely. But the Bengal defense will suffer breakdowns regularly as they will leak points due to unforced errors. This will be a high scoring match as raiders from both sides will loot. But the Bengal Warriors may lose steam in the second half. Dabang Delhi will try some of their reserves in this match once they have a tight hold on their opponents. The 100th match of season 10 looks like one way traffic.

Dabang Delhi will win.
