Chartbusters Dabang Delhi and Jaipur Pink Panthers have come a long way in this season. While Dabang Delhi has more or less maintained their position in the top 3 consistently, the Pink Panthers have been like a sinusoidal wave pattern. Dabang Delhi have recovered from the absence of Naveen Express but the Pink Panthers have not been able to exploit the success of raider Arjun Deshwal. Dabang Delhi beat U Mumba in their last game while the Pink Panthers looted the Patna Pirates and beat them by 21 points. Will this thumping inspire the Pink Panthers?

Jaipur has an exceptional team of defenders, especially Sandeep Dhull, Sahul Kumar and,  Vishal. The Pink Panthers have won 6 out of their 14 games and these victories were possible only due to their defense. Dabang Delhi also have a fantastic team of defenders in the form of veteran Jeeva Kumar, Manjit Chillar and Joginder Narwal, who is back to full fitness. This contest will be between the defense of both teams.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

Looks like the legendary Pink Panther diamond has been stolen!!! This famous dialogue from the film Pink Panther suits the Jaipur Pink Panthers as they seem have lost their way in this tournament. They have raiders like Arjun Deshwal who has been a revelation this season, inspiring Deepak Niwas Hooda and defenders like Sandeep Dhull, Sahul Kumar and Vishal. Still they languish in the 9th position in the points table. They are missing their swag. The Jaipur Pink Panthers have been inconsistent throughout this season. While they beat the fancied Patna Pirates by 21 points in their last game, they have also lost matches due to multiple unforced errors.

Raider Arjun Deshwal has been their star player with 169 raid points from 138 successful raids. He is also a DoD specialist with 37 DoD raid points which is the highest this season.  Defenders Sahul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull have combined well in a few matches which has helped the Pink Panthers win, but still they do not figure in the top 10 defenders of this season. This is the inconsistency due to which the Pink Panthers are stationed at the 9th place. 

They have conducted 233 successful team raids while executing only 114 successful team tackles in 14 games. They have the lowest Super tackles among all the teams as they have not been able to hunt down opposition raiders. 

They have inflicted 16 all-outs while conceding 17 in 14 games. Hence whatever they earn from their raids is recklessly spent by their defence. They need to tighten this unnecessary expenditure are they take on table toppers Dabang Delhi.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Dabang’s have been one of the most consistent sides in this tournament. They slipped a bit after Naveen’s injury but they have managed to come back in style and are current table toppers. The only blemish in their impressive run this season was the couple of losses after Naveen and Joginder Narwal could not play due to fitness issues. But the most remarkable aspect of this team is that they are quick learners. They beat U Mumba in their last game to stamp their supremacy as the top team of the season.

It is yet to be known officially if Naveen Kumar has recovered or not, but it may also be a ploy by the Dabang’s to keep him fresh for the knock-outs. 

Dabang Delhi has  won 9 out of their 15 games. All-rounder Vijay and raider Ashu Malik have provided refreshing raiding support while Hulk Sandeep Narwal has garnished some spicy raids.

Dabang Delhi has executed 259 successful team tackles but only 113 successful tackles. Their main weapon was Naveen Kumar who used to assault the opposition with quick and successful raids. The defence comprising of veterans Jeeva Kumar, Manjit Chillar and Joginder Narwal are evergreen though they have a bad day at the office once in a while. 

Dabang Delhi has earned 319 raid points while conceding 489 points to the opposition. Dabang’s lost to the Pink Panthers in their last encounter by just 3 points. This time they will be eager to avenge that defeat and continue enjoying the top position in the points table.

Jaipur Pink panthers need to desperately win a game to resurrect themselves in the tournament while Dabang Delhi is systematically decimating every team they face. Both teams have faced fitness issues for its players but Dabang Delhi has recovered quickly. Jaipur Pink Panthers will be dependent on raider Arjun Deshwals earning while defenders Sandeep Dhull and Sahul Kumar will have to be accurate with their moves. Dabang Delhi will be looking to avenge their defeat to the Pink Panthers by letting Sandeep Narwal loose in the enemy camp. It will all depend on how Manjit Chillar, Jeeva Kumar and Joginder Narwal combine to tackle raider Arjun Deshwal. This will be a face-off between him and the Dabang defence. One will have to wait and see if this will be the comeback match for Naveen Express. Looks like the team which makes the most unforced errors will gift the game.

Dabang Delhi will win.
