This is an encounter between teams lost in transit. While the defending champions have been decoded thoroughly by their opponents, the Jaipur Pink Panthers have lost steam suddenly. Dabang Delhi had a major concern as Naveen was injured in the match against the Tamil Thalaiva. Fortunately, he was back for the next game but the Puneri Paltan still managed to trick them into submission. Dabang Delhi have lost all the advantage they got with their initial wins.

The Jaipur Pink Panthers have suffered a similar fate as they have lost steam suddenly. They have lost a hat-trick of games and have been pushed to the 5th spot in the points table. Jaipur lost to the Puneri Paltan followed by the Tamil Thalaiva. They were conned in their last game by Bengaluru Bulls. 

Both teams need a shot in the arm as they seem to have taken a wrong turn somewhere in the middle of the season. If both teams are not able to correct their course, they may end up losing out on the play-off.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

The defending champions never in their wildest dreams thought that they will be decoded so easily. They have lost 5 games on the trot and they also had an injury scare to Naveen Kumar. The team combination is still the same for Dabang, but their opponents have become smarter while dealing with them.

It all started with a close encounter with the Patna Pirates that Dabang lost by a margin of 4 points. Dabang Delhi was leading by 8 points at the end of the first half. They could not earn a single tackle point in the second half of that game apart from being all-out twice by the Patna Pirates. That slide continued in the next 4 games as the defending champions find themselves in the 4th spot in the points table.

Naveen Kumar is fit to play and that is a big relief for Dabang Delhi. They seem to be slightly confused in terms of what leakages to plug. Naveen Kumar is earning his regular raid income, the defense seems to be doing all right, but still, they are losing games. Dabang Delhi has developed this bad habit of getting all-out in the second half at crucial moments of the game.

They will be up against the Jaipur Pink Panthers who are going through a similar mid-life crisis. This should present Dabang with an opportunity to bounce back. Never before in the past few seasons have Dabang Delhi looked so vulnerable. Surprisingly they do not have a good record against the Pink Panthers as Dabang has won 7 out of their 18 games. In fact, Dabang Delhi lost twice to the Pink Panthers in the last season. Hence the defending champions will feel the pressure as they enter the mat to take on the Jaipur Pink Panthers.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

The Jaipur Pink Panthers had a wonderful run in the season before they broke down against the Puneri Paltan. They had come into that game after thrashing the Telegu Titans by 24 points. Their confidence was sky-high until they got conned by the Paltan.

The story continued as the Pink Panthers were wayward against the Tamil Thalaiva and then lost to the Bengaluru Bulls. They have become sitting ducks after performing like champions in the initial part of the season. Their losses have been primarily due to a reduction in earnings via raids and a typical breakdown of their defense.

Arjun Deshwal has earned 91 raid points in the 9 games that he has played, but in the last few games, he has been trapped easily by the opposition.  The Jaipur defense hasn’t been up to the mark in their last few games. The Pink Panthers have also been all-out at crucial moments in the game making it difficult for them to stage a comeback. 

They have executed 147 successful team raids and 88 successful team tackles.

The Pink Panthers have also inflicted 15 all-outs.

But things have changed completely in their last 3 games. 

Captain Sunil Kumar has been consistent while the only ray of hope in the defense has been left-corner Ankush. This diminutive defender has played his heart out while earning vital tackle points. But defenders Sahul Kumar and KS Abhisek have faltered at important moments. The Pink Panthers will be up against an out-of-form Dabang Delhi side. This will be a great opportunity to stop the slide for the Pink Panthers.

This will be a highly entertaining encounter as two sides who have lost their way in this season meet. Dabang Delhi and Jaipur Pink Panthers are going through similar breakdowns.

Jaipur Pink Panthers will expect their defenders to get back their precision. Sahul Kumar and Abhisek will show stark improvement in this game. Sunil Kumar and Ankush will play an important role for the Pink Panthers. Raider Arjun Deshwal will be lethal while Rahul Chaudhary and Ajith will be expected to support Arjun.

Dabang Delhi will have to protect Naveen from any further injuries. Left cover Anil Kumar and left corner Vijay will have to improve their tackles while Krishnan Dhull will get back his original touch. Naveen Kumar will get good support from raiders Manjeet and Ashu Malik. Dabang Delhi will be able to stop this slide that they have been suffering in their last 5 games. They will be able to exploit the weak Jaipur defense to announce their grand comeback. Expect a high-scoring game.

Dabang Delhi will win.
