This will be a contest between contrasting teams. Former chmapions Dabang Delhi are all set to move into the next round while the highly talented UP Yodha are struggling for survival. The Yodha did start the season with some decent performances. But later they broke down beyond repairs and currently find themselves at the 11th spot in the points table with just 3 victories from 15 matches. Dabang Delhi too had a few issues mid-season as their superstar Naveen Kumar was unavailable. But they adapted quickly to move into the 3rd spot behind Jaipur and Pune. Hence this encounter at Patna will be important for Dabang Delhi rather than the UP Yodha.

To add insult to injury, the Yodha lost to the Telegu Titans in their last match, that too by a huge margin of 17 points. This was a major embarrassment for UP as this was Telegu Titan’s second victory of the season. Everything seems to have gone the wrong way for them. UP Yodha has failed in its raiding as well as its defense. Dabang Delhi had to work overtime to beat the spirited Haryana Steelers in their last match. Captain Ashu Malik and their entire defense saved the day for Dabang. Hence this encounter can be treated as the one to earn maximum points for Dabang Delhi. UP will look forward to play party-spoilers.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Former champions are placed comfortably in this season. They have quickly adapted to the scenario as they have won 9 out of their 15 matches. Dabang Delhi will consider themselves lucky as the absence of Naveen Kumar did not hurt them badly. They suffered severely for a couple of games but young Ashu Malik has taken over successfully. He has scored 157 raid points from less than 100 successful raids and he is just behind the leader Arjun Deshwal. Such has been the tenacity and agility of Ashu Malik that every opponent has been foxed by his raiding skills. 

Dabang Delhi have lost just 1 out of their last 5 matches. They forced a TIE against the Patna Pirates in a high scoring game. It was a sensible thing to do rather than lose the match. Dabang Delhi had a tough time defeating the Haryana Steelers in their last match. Once again the Delhi captain displayed his class as he scored 14 raid points. Defenders Yogesh and Ashish were precise while veteran Vishal Bharadwaj made his presence felt with 3 tackle points. While Ashu Malik has ruled the mat, support raiders have been a concern for Delhi, especially their third raider. Dabang has tried raiders Manjeet and Meetu Sharma but none of them have fired. Hence Delhi becomes a defense heavy team. 

Still Dabang Delhi has the best raiding efficiency courtesy Ashu Malik. Success rate for Delhi in team raids is about 42%

 Fortunately, Dabang has inflicted 21 all-outs in their matches while conceding 16. 

But defense seems to be their strength as left cover Himmat Antil has been impressive. Veteran Vishal Bharadwaj was scratchy in the first match but he made amends on his comeback. Dabang Delhi have given a tough fight to the UP Yodha in the last few seasons. Both teams have their weaknesses and form issues. This will be an important match for Dabang from the perspective of earning valuable points.

U.P. Yoddha Preview

UP Yodha has been one of the biggest disappointments on season 10. Such a talented team with big names could not carve a perfect journey. They are currently languishing at the 11th spot in the points able with very little hope of proceeding to the next round. The Yodha fans will be disappointed but they will also empathize with the players. Pardeep Narwal was brilliant in phases while Surender Gill was out of contention after a good performance. Defender Sumit is in the top 10 list of defenders but he is not able to turn around his team fortunes. They have won just 3 matches this season with a very dismal record. UP Yodha started in style but post their 5th match of the season, they looked completely out of sorts. The individual performances continued but they ran out of luck. 

 They conceded 575 team points in 15 matches. 

They have conceded 24 all-outs this season and they have an efficiency of just 37% in team tackles. 

The Yodha lost to the Telegu Titans in their last match which was quite shocking. Though Captain Pardeep Narwal scored a Super 10 and defender Hitesh put up a spirited performance, UP trailed through the match. They conceded 3 all-outs in the match which totally punctured them. Normally the UP Yodha extends such hospitality to their opponents. UP cannot continue this style in their remaining games. With just 3 victories in the tournament, the play-off are an impossible dream. But the Yodha can motivate itself by becoming the party spoilers. 

They need to revitalize themselves so as to put in some consistent performances. UP Yodha has a decent record against Dabang Delhi. UP has won 6 out of their 10 matches. Though UP used to dominate Delhi till season 6, Dabang has given them a run for their money off-late. UP lost to Dabang Delhi on 30th December. This was their first encounter with the former champions. They lost by a margin of 10 points. Hence this will be an interesting episode of the northern derby.

Welcome to the contest of legends. Pardeep Narwal with over 1600 PKL raid points will be up against young Ashu Malik. Dabang Delhi have been in good form in the last 5 matches. They have used different tactics against different opponents. Captain Ashu Malik will be their trump card as he will score a Super 10. The support raiders may not earn much but they will complement Ashu Malik. Defenders Yogesh and Ashish will play a crucial role along with Vikrant. Veteran Vishal Bharadwaj will show his swag in the second half.

The Yodha will struggle as they are fatigued. The absence of Surender Gill has left Pardeep Narwal un-insulated. Defender Sumit too looks tired. But Anil Kumar and Hitesh will tackle effectively as young raider Gagana Gowda will excel. Pardeep Narwal will show his class in the second half. But the Yodha will concede at least 2 all-outs in the match. This will be an epic battle between two fine teams. This match will be a celebration of the beautiful festival called “Kabbadi”.

Dabang Delhi will win.
