The northern derby has always been an exciting affair. The defending champions mean business while the Haryana Steelers struggled a bit in their last game against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Raiders Manjeet and Meetu have complimented each other but it was the defense that crashed in the last game. The Steelers defense could earn just 9 tackle points in the entire match. Haryana Steelers lost the match even after raider Meetu earned 16 points. Most of their defenders had to stay off the match almost throughout the game as they were hunted by the opposition raiders.
Dabang Delhi seems to be on top of the world as they continue their good run in season 9. Naveen Express is running on time while young raiders Manjeet and Ashu Malik have been very impressive. Manjeet Singh has earned 27 raid points in 4 games. Defenders Ravi Kumar, Vishal, Krishnan Dhull, and Vijay Kumar are in top form. The Dabang has executed 53 successful team tackles which makes them invincible.
The defending champions are enjoying every moment on the mat as everything they touch seems to turn into gold. Their team is performing consistently as none of the other teams are able to give them any competition. They have not even struggled in any of their 4 games.
Fortunately for Dabang Delhi, Naveen Kumar is in the form of his life. He has already scored over 50 points in 4 games while Dabang has the highest number of successful team tackles. The defense has been particularly ruthless against opposition raiders.
Dabang has earned 102 team raid points while grabbing 54 team tack points. They are on top in both categories. They have inflicted 9 all-outs while their average team score is around 46 which is mighty impressive.
They will be up against the Haryana Steelers who are placed 4th in the points table after 3 games. Incidentally the defending champions do not have a great record against the Steelers. In their 10 previous meetings, Dabang has won just 3 games which is a blip in their credentials.
With their current form, it looks unlikely that the Steelers will be able to trouble the defending champions. Left corner Sandeep Dhull was not in great touch hence Dabang replaced him with Vijay Kumar and that has yielded good results. Covers Ravi Kumar and Vishal are in top gear as they earned 7 tackle points between them in the last game. Defender Krishnan Dhull has been aggressive while Tejas Patil played well in the last game.
Dabang Delhi is the best team as of now in the PKL. They are the defending champions and they would dream of winning back-to-back titles just like the Patna Pirates.
Haryana Steelers won back-to-back games to begin this season. They tasted success early due to the raiding duo of Manjeet and Meetu. They have Jaideep Dahiya who was one of the top raiders of season 8. But the Steelers faltered in their third game against the Jaipur Pink Panthers as they lost the game by a margin of 113 points.
The defense struggled as the Steelers could earn just 9 tackle points in the entire game and they were all-out thrice by their opponents. This was a wake-up call for the Steelers. They have a few areas where they seem to be struggling. They have just inflicted 2 all-outs in 3 games while conducting 28 successful team tackles.
Though this is the beginning of a long season, Haryana Steelers will need to be ready for the long haul as well as contingency plans. They are heavily dependent on raiders Meetu and Manjeet. Left corner Joginder Narwal is their captain and he is an experienced campaigner. But at the fag end of his career, he will need to motivate himself as well as inspire his young guns.
But Haryana Steelers have something to be proud of and that is their impressive record against the defending champions. Steelers have won 7 out of their 10 matches with Dabang Delhi. They will hope to extend this lead and stun their opponents early in the season.
The northern derby promises to be an exciting affair. The Steelers struggled in the last game, especially in their defense. None of the defenders were able to execute successful tackles. They were caught napping throughout the match. Jaideep Dahiya and right cover Mohit can trouble Naveen Kumar while Manjeet will score a Super 10. All-rounder Nitin Rawal will come back in style as he weaved his magic in the first 2 games.
Naveen Express will continue his good run as he looks unstoppable. He has good support from Manjeet Singh of the Dabang Delhi and Ashu Malik. The Dabang defense is rock solid and the Steelers will find it difficult to escape from their clutches. Dabang Delhi is in cruise mode as they look to win 5 games in a row.
Dabang Delhi will win.
