A long season demands endurance and passion. Both teams have shown the endurance as well as the passion to play exciting and entertaining kabaddi. At Patna Pirates have already qualified for the next stage, they will try and use reserve players in their last 2 games. Patna has been clinical with their approach which has helped them win their last 6 games. Dabang Delhi is losing steam as they have won just 1 game out of their last 5. They too have started to wane like the Bengaluru Bulls. Dabang tied with the Bulls and then the Bengal Warriors before losing to UP Yodha in their last game. Their major concern is that Naveen Express was isolated by the opposition. They beat the Patna Pirates earlier this month by 3 points. But a lot has changed since then. It will be interesting to see if Dabang has enough gas left in their tanks to beat the Patna Pirates. Though they are placed 2nd in the points table and more or less assured of moving to the next stage, maintaining their vehicle for the eliminators is their biggest concern.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Dabang Delhi looked unstoppable throughout the season. Even though they lost Naveen Kumar to injury, they still hung on to the top 3 positions in the points table. They have 10 out of their 20 games and look comfortably placed to move in to the eliminators. But off-late they have been hammered by the opposition which has taken off their sharpness. Their defence is struggling to hunt, while the opposition is getting the better of Naveen Express. They have not been able to win games off late and that creates a void in their process. They need to get back to their old ways as they aim to carve their name on the trophy. They missed out in the last season but this time they need some more fuel to help them cross the barriers. 

They have one more game after this encounter with Patna. This will give them some solace as they play the Telegu Titans in their last league match. They had a tough time against the UP Yodha as Naveen Kumar could only score 1point. All rounder Vijay had to work overtime to earn raid points. Their defence was also not able to stop Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill. This time they will be up against the relentless Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Ghuman Singh. Veteran defenders Manjit Chillar and Jeeva will have to play a vital role. It is also surprising that Dabang Delhi have underused Hulk Sandeep Narwal. He can be an irritant for the opposition defenders. Sandeep will have to play a major role to support this defence to hunt either one of the Pirate raiders. This will be a tough game for Dabang Delhi as they not only aim to win this game but to get back in shape for the eliminators. 

Naveen Express will have to run seamlessly through the Patna defence. This looks difficult as left corner Mohamedreza, Sajin and Neeraj Kumar look hungry for any prey in their range.

Patna Pirates Preview

One of the most enterprising team of the season, the Pirates has impressed everybody with their intensity and adaptability. The raiding trio of Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai have been consistent. Even in the absence of Monu Goyat, the Pirates used young Ghuman Singh effectively thus negating the absence of Monu. They have already qualified for the eliminators and they would like to use these matches to try out some young players. This will also give their main players some rest. The Pirates have got the perfect template needed to win games in such a format. Their defence has blossomed over the season. Left corner Mohaedreza in particular has been lethal and agile. He is among the top defenders with 69 successful tackles. He has been supported well by Neeraj Kumar and Sajin. Both are experts in perpendicular body blows which dislodges raiders out of bound. 

But the pirates will have to be careful as this is a long season and still a lot of battles are to be fought. They will have to ensure that their main players remain fit as well as rotate them in order to keep them fresh for each match.

Patna Pirates have executed 228 successful team tackles which is the highest among all teams. They have earned 645 team points while conceding 629 team points which is the lowest of the season. 

They have inflicted 33 all outs which is the highest while conceding only 16 which is the lowest among all the teams. This has made the Pirates the most fearless and enterprising unit of the tournament. The Pirates are the most fearsome combination on the mat and they should earn a good Dabang bounty. 

Their fans will hope that this lucky phase continues for the Pirates so that they can lift the coveted trophy for a record 4th time.

This game will be of greater significance for the Dabang Delhi team rather than the Pirates. Dabang has some glaring difficulties which can be exploited by their opponents. The once unstoppable Naveen will take some time to get back in the groove. The Pirates are on an unbelievable and unimaginable winning spree as they have knocked out every opponent they have faced in the last 2 weeks. Their raiders are in great touch and their defenders are at their sharpest. Dabang Delhi will expect Naveen to fire as he is their main weapon. The Dabang defence will have to work overtime to counter the Pirates. Sandeep Narwal has to be careful about his unforced errors. This will be the biggest test for Manjit Chillar, Jeeva Kumar and Joginder Narwal.

The Pirates will look forward to counter Naveen while expecting their raiders to wreck havoc in the Dabang camp, loot all their treasures.

Patna Pirates will win.
