This will be the last match for both teams as the caravan moves to Hyderabad. Dabang Delhi and Gujarat Fortune Giants have been the only teams who have given a tough fight to the Puneri Paltan who are the table toppers. Though the Giants got thrashed by the Paltan in their last game, Gujarat has been consistent. They have won 7 out of their 12 matches. Similarly, Dabang Delhi too has won 7 out of 12 games. Hence this contest becomes exciting as one of them has to move up the points table. 

Dabang Delhi had to sweat it out against the Patna Pirates in their last match. They settled for a TIE in a high scoring match but Delhi should have won. Dabang played it safe and shared points with the Pirates instead of losing the match. Both teams have their strengths and weaknesses. But Gujarat can be highly unpredictable. They have some fantastic young raiders along with cunning Captain Fazel Attrachali in the defense. Dabang Delhi have become dangerous even without Superstar Naveen Kumar. Hence this will be brilliant face-off between the young Delhi defense and the young Gujarat raiders.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Former champions are going through a mid-life crisis as they have to continue the journey without their captain Naveen Kumar. Dabang was placed 6th in the points table after playing 8 matches. But they have recovered in time to enter the top 3 after playing 12 matches. Stand-in Captain Ashu Malik has marshaled his troops with a lot of attitude.

Dabang Delhi beat arch-rivals UP Yodha a couple of weeks back. Ashu Malik scored a Super 10 while left corner Ashish scored a Hi 5. Then they were forced to settle for a TIE against the Jaipur Pink Panthers but they also got hammered by the Puneri Paltan. They decided to play safe against the Patna Pirates in their last match as they settled for another TIE. Dabang Delhi has 2 TIED matches in this season.

 Former Champions has a success rate of about 43% in team raids while their efficiency in team tackles is about 38%. They need to improve on their defense as the tournament progresses. They have a young bunch of defenders who took some time to warm up. Left corner Ashish has executed 28 successful tackles in this season but none of the Delhi defenders are in the top 10. This explains why the former champions were struggling earlier in the season. Right corner Yogesh and left cover Vikrant have resonated but not very effectively. Dabang Delhi has played a massive gamble by roping young defenders for this season and this may prove to be a double edged sword. 

Delhi has to be very careful against the Gujarat Giants. Though Delhi has not lost to the Giants since season 7, a lot of things have changed for them since then. Gujarat has a lethal defense in the form of Fazel Attrachali and Sombir. The young Delhi defenders will have to face one-man army Prateek Dahiya along with raider Rakesh. Dabang will sincerely hope that Naveen Kumar comes back, else they may be become the punching bag for the Gujarat Giants. Dabang defeated the Gujarat Giants in their last meeting of the season. They won the match comfortably as the Gujarat raiders were neutralized very early in the match. Delhi will have to repeat this performance. They have not lost any of their last 5 matches and they will plan to continue this dream run.

Gujarat Giants Preview

The Gujarat Giants have been one of the most vibrant teams of season 10. They may not have superstar raiders but they win matches regularly. Their young brigade of defenders have worked efficiently under legend Fazel Attrachali to produce some surprising results. They are in the top 5 of the points table after playing 12 matches. The Giants had a lean phase last month as they lost consecutive matches. But they followed it up with a hat-trick of victories, viz UP Yodha, Tamil Thalaiva and the Bengal Warriors. Adaptability has been the key to their success. They introduced young raider Sonu in the first few matches. He ended executing 4 Super raids in 4 games. With him being decoded, Gujarat got raider Rakesh to continue the earnings. But it was raider Prateek Dahiya who brewed a whirlpool in the last match as he earned 25 points against the Bengal Warriors. With his hurricane raiding, Gujarat inflicted 2 all-outs by half time to earn 28 points. It was the one-man army Prateek who celebrated the arrival of the new-year by marauding the Bengal Warriors. 

But they have had their breakdowns in the last 5 matches. Gujarat has lost 2 out of their last 5 matches. They looked completely amateur against the Puneri Paltan who blasted them by margin of 20 points. It was a total loss of appetite for the Giants as their raiders as well as their defenders failed. Sombir was the one man army who scored 6 tackle points. Sombir got severely injured during training and had to miss a match. But the brave defender was back on the mat for this team with heavy bandage on his forehead. His teammates need to inspire themselves looking at Sombir. 

Gujarat Giants have won 5 out of their 13 matches against Dabang Delhi. Unfortunately they lost to the former champions in their first league match against Delhi. Gujarat lost by a margin of 7 points, courtesy a breakdown in their raiding. They need to get back to winning ways as they have forged a fantastic team. Captain Fazel Attrachali will be aware of this. All-rounder Nabibaksh, Arkam Shaikh and Right cover Dipak Singh need to improve their consistency so that they can complement Fazel Attrachali and Sombir. Gujarat will look forward to avenge their defeat in the first league match. Raiders Prateek and Sonu will be expected to recharge themselves and fox the young Delhi defense.

Welcome to another exciting match at the indoor stadium in Jaipur as Dabang Delhi takes on arch-rivals Gujarat Giants. Both teams are in placed in the top 5 of the points table. Both teams had a tough match earlier in the week. Dabang Delhi will hope that Naveen returns of this crucial game. Stand-in Captain Ashu Malik will earn handsomely while the supporting raiders will complement him especially in the first half. But the Delhi defense may falter. Defenders Yogesh and Ashish will regulate the Gujarat raiders. But the Dabang Delhi defense may leak points in the second half.

Gujarat Giants will hope that their raiders do not have a bad day at the office. Raiders Sou, Rakesh and Prateek will be effective but none of them will be able to score a Super 10. Defender Sombir will hunt precise as he will neutralize the Dabang support raiders. Fazel Attrachali and Sombir will do the bulk of the damage. But this match will be a low scoring one a raiders of both teams have been miserly with their earnings. This will be the ultimate face-off between the defense of both teams. Gujarat Giants will ride on experience while Dabang Delhi will build the intensity with their youthful exuberance.

Gujarat Giants will win.
