Dabang Delhi got the taste of harsh reality when they lost to the Bulls in their last encounter. They lost by a difference of 39 points. Without Naveen Express, the Dabang's look like an amateur side. A team which was unbeatable suddenly looks vulnerable after 2 losses.

Though the Haryana Steelers are in the 8th spot in the points table, they will take to the mat high on confidence.

Dabang Delhi KC lost to the Jaipur Pink Panthers and then they were tossed like an egg on the pan by the Bengaluru Bulls. Their most successful raider, Naveen was injured very early in that game against the Pink Panthers and he could not take the field in the next match. If Naveen is not able to play against the Steelers, this will be a big blow to the Dabang Delhi side. They can't afford to slide further in this season.

Haryana will be happy with their performance against the UP Yodha team where they were able to force a TIE.

The Steelers can realistically still make it to the play off. This will be a fiercely contested game where the Dabang Delhi team will have to accept life without Naveen Express.

Haryana Steelers Preview

The Steelers are an enthusiastic group of hard working players and they have entertained us all whenever they have entered the arena. Currently lodged in the 8h place in the points table, they have been able to gather 23 points. They would like to win the first match of the triple panga against an already hurt Dabang Delhi side. If Naveen is not able to play, this will be a give advantage for the Steelers and they will definitely exploit this.

They played with 2 frontline raiders in their last match, Vikash Kandola and Meetu and it worked for them. They used more all rounder’s in their defence. Vikash had a fantastic game against the UP Yodha as he scored 17 valuable points.

Surender Nada got a High 5 in that match too. The only concern was the unforced errors by defenders Ravi Kumar and Jaideep.

Jaideep has been one of the best defenders of the season with 24 tackle points to his name including 2 High 5's

Vikash Kandola has 77 raid points from 9 games.

Unfortunately they have conceded over 300 points this season which is the highest by any team.

They may have good defenders and raiders but they have not been able to keep a tab on their expenses. This has been their major drawback.

They will sincerely hope that Naveen does not play this game, reduce the unforced errors, win the game and move up the points table. But this will be a difficult panga for the Steelers.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

The 50th game of the season was a forgetful one for the Dabang's. The Bulls squeezed out every drop out of the as they lost by a whopping 39 points. Very unprecedented but true. The Dabang's are badly hurt and they will like to erase all those memories. Pawan Sehrawat came in like a tornedo and scored 27 points with relative ease.

The Dabang's have learned their lesson. Naveen Kumar is the major cog in his wheel, but if he is not available, the Dabang's will have to look out for other ways of survival.

They still have all rounder Vijay, Ashu Malik and Neeraj Narwal as back up radiers.

Their strength is their defence with veterans like Manjit Chillar, Jeeva Kumar and Joginder Narwal. In the absence of Naveen they will have to dry out the scoring and create a drought for them. Only then they can dream of coming back to winning ways.

Expect for the last 2 games, the Dabang's have looked unbeatable. They were a bit slow while playing the Jaipur Pink Panthers and then totally lost against the Bulls. This game will be a test of their character and temperament.

If they lose this one, it will be very difficult for them to come back in this tournament.

After 2 consecutive losses, the Dabang Delhi side is placed 3rd in the points table with 32 points. All is not lost for them, but Naveen's fitness will be their biggest concern.

They have a good chance to tackle the Haryana Steelers and give Naveen some more time to recover.

This will be a contest between the Raiders of Haryana and the Dabang defenders!!!!

The first of the triple panga will be full of fireworks. If Naveen is not fit, the Dabang Delhi team may just go the Telegu Titans way. Naveen is an important component for the Dabang's and they will take some time to find a template without him, they have already been whitewashed by the Bulls in the absence of Naveen Express and they would not like to get another coat from the Steelers.

The Haryana Steelers have one of the best defence in the business and raider Vikash Kandola is in great touch. They will try and ransack the Dabang Delhi side once again to earn important points as well as move up the ladder.

But beware of the Dabang’s as they have been brought down on their knees in their earlier game, they will come back with vengeance.

If Naveen is unavailable, the Dabang's will have to rely on part time raiders and on their strong defence. They cannot afford to gift away points to the Steelers as they did to Pawan Sehrawat.

Dabang Delhi will win.
