Former champions Dabang Delhi are on the cusp of qualifying for the next round. They have won 11 out of their 19 matches with just 3 more bouts for them in this season. They are 1 victory away from the play-off. Dabang earned some brownie points in their last match as they deceived the Puneri Paltan in to submission. The Paltan was forced to settle for a TIE as the Delhi defense was at its optimal best. On the other hand, defending champions got a wake-up call as they lost to the Patna Pirates. This was a shocker for the Pink Panthers as raider Arjun Deshwal was in good form as he completed 200 points in this season. Jaipur fell short by just 3 points as their support raiders could not provide the killer punch.
Both teams have been through a lot in this season. They are equally matched with ace an ace raider and exceptional defense. Last time they met on 27th December 2023 as they played out a TIE. This match is important for Dabang Delhi from the context of qualification. The Jaipur Pink Panthers had a bad day at the office against the Patna Pirates. They will hope that their working hours are not extended unnecessarily by the home team Dabang Delhi.
Dabang Delhi has be blowing hot and cold in the initial part of season 10. Even though Naveen Kumar got injured mid-season, Delhi survived the rough weather to win 11 out of their 19 matches. Captain Ashu Malik emerged as their new hero. He has already 213 raid points in 183 successful raids. With the best strike rate in raiding, Ashu Malik has also compensated for the lack of support from the other raiders. Though Dabang Delhi has maintained its position in the top 5, they have been stretched too much by a few teams. But Dabang pulled off a heist in their last match as they forced a TIE with the Puneri Paltan. Though none of their raiders could score a Super 10, the Delhi defense took the initiative as Yogesh scored a Hi 5. Dabang Delhi led by 8 points at half-time as they used the Puneri strategy of hit and run against them. This worked as Delhi inflicted an all-out every early in the first half.
But Dabang lost intensity as Pune managed to counter attack and force a TIE. Though the result was acceptable for Dabang Delhi, they should have won the match. This was the moment that Dabang Delhi missed Naveen Kumar the most. Dabang Delhi needs to be consistent with their strategy. Though they have plans to adapt as per their opponents, but Delhi seems to go on the defensive very often. This almost hurt them in few of the matches last month. Youngster Ashu Malik has also impressed in most of the games. Dabang Delhi has some concerns regarding their third raiding option.
But the former champions will be very happy with the performance of defenders Yogesh and Ashish. Both have punched above their weight. Ashish replaced veteran Vishal Bharadwaj as the left corner and this move has been beneficial. Yogesh has executed 54 successful tackles in 15 matches while left corner Ashish has executed 41 successful tackles in 15 matches. Delhi needs its defenders Ashish Sangwan and Vikrant to complement the others.
Dabang does not have a great record against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Delhi has won just 7 out of their 21 encounters and they have not defeated the defending champions since season 7. This will be the toughest match for Dabang Delhi as they plan to script a huge upset.
The defending champions had a lukewarm start to the season. But they have won 12 out of their 18 matches to secure the top spot in the points table as well as qualify for the next round. They may not have been ruthless or dominant, but the Pink Panthers are in cruise control. MVP of season 9, Arjun Deshwal is their trump card. He has scored 202 raid points which includes 12 Super 10’s. He will be expected to take the Pink Panthers to the finals once again.
They had a bad day at the office against the Patna Pirates. Jaipur lost intensity in the second half of the match to lose by just 3 points in front of their home crowd. Arjun Deshwal scored 12 points but once again the support raiders could not gather enough. The Jaipur defense was good but not spicy. Hence they fell short by 3 points in the end. The Pink Panthers led by 4 points at half-time as they inflicted an all-out on the Pirates. But they lost intensity in the second half as the Pirates piled on 22 team points apart from inflicting 2 all-outs on the defending champions. This was a wake-up call for the Pink Panthers as they will sincerely hope that this does not happen with them in a knock out situation.
Jaipur Pink Panthers have multiple options in their raiding department. Veteran Ajith has performed as usual while youngster Bhavani Rajput has been used as the 3rd raider. Jaipur have been generally defensive in their approach.
Their raiding efficiency is about 36% which is due to the fact that support raiders are not earning enough. But with a 42% success rate in team tackles, the Pink Panthers have been able to compensate for their low raiding income. Left corner Ankush has been deadly while Reza Mirbhageri has executed 42 successful tackles in 17 matches. Veteran Sahul Kumar has bounced back in style. Captain Sunil Kumar needs to improve his consistency as this will create an impregnable wall for the Pink Panthers. The defending champions will be up against a resurgent Dabang Delhi. Jaipur Pink Panthers need to change their strategy so that they can register a big win over the former champions. Jaipur forced a TIE when they last met. But the Pink Panthers will have to work overtime to defeat Dabang Delhi in front of the Delhi crowd.
Welcome to the dress rehearsal of the play-off as Dabang Delhi take on the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Delhi does not have many matches left and they cannot afford to lose momentum. This will be a face-off between raiders Ashu Malik and Arjun Deshwal. Both will score a Super 10 in a hotly contested game.
Dabang will take the lead by half-time. Defenders Yogesh and Ashish will be crucial in taming Arjun Deshwal. But the Delhi defense may falter on several occasions. Both teams struggle with their support raiders and this will be evident through the match. Jaipur has a slight advantage in terms of their defensive power. Left Corner Ankush and Reza Mirbagheri will hunt precisely. But both teams may concede all-outs as well as points due to unforced errors. The second half of the match will be exciting and entertaining. Dabang desperately needs to win this match to confirm their qualification for the next round.
Jaipur Pink Panthers will win.
