Dabang Delhi have been by far the most consistent and entertaining team of the season. They are yet to lose a match in this tournament and most of the teams have found it difficult to reign in Naveen Express or the Dabang line of defence. Though they were stretched to the limit once or twice in the tournament, Naveen Express has been unstoppable.

Jaipur Pink Panthers have been working hard in every match but they have not been able to create a winning template. Though they won their last match against the Puneri Paltan, they have been found wanting against bigger teams. Arjun Deshwal has been his star this season and he has been consistently raking in points.

But the Pink Panthers will have their task cut out when they take on the fluid Dabang Delhi side. They only way to stop them will be neutralizing Naveen Express. Not many have been able to derail this train, neither many have been able to get a snag in its working.

Can the Pink Panther defense of Shaul Kumar and Sandeep Dhull do some chain pulling so that Naveen Express stops at all their stations?

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

The Pink Panthers will take inspiration from the fact that this will be a contest between the best raider of the season and the second best which is their own Arjun Deshwal. He has single-handedly helped them score regularly, 92 raid points from 73 successful raids.

Arjun Deshwal has also the highest Super 10's this season along with Naveen Kumar- 7 each. Jaipur Pink Panthers also have a very good DoD conversion rate as they have earned 33 DoD raid points in 7 matches.

Along with Arjun, captain Deepak Niwas Hooda takes care of the raiding, but it is their defence which has left them down on multiple occasions. With only 3 Super tackles and 55 tackle points in 7 games, the Pink Panthers have not been able to defend their fortress. They have conceded 9 all outs and this forces them to be in the hunt all the time rather than dominate the game.

They used the services of veteran Dharamraj Cheralathan in the match against the Bulls but it did not work well. They have not been able to find resources cover corner combinations. They have tried Elavarasan, Deepak Singh and Sachin Narwal too.

They raiding department looks sorted but it is their defence which lets them down. Now with the business end of the tournament round the corner, it is high time that the Pink Panthers go all out against whom so ever they may play. Against the Dabang's their greatest concern will be how to control Naveen. Apart from him, their raiders will also have to counter the likes of Manjit Chillar, Surender Nada and Sandeep Narwal. This will be a test of character for the Pink Panthers.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

They are the chartbusters, haven't done much wrong this season. They have the best raider of the tournament, one of the best defence template, they are yet to lose a match. After playing 7 matches they are on top with 31 points, winning 5 out of the 7 matches.

Naveen Kumar is the top raider with a century of points and still hungry for more.

Surender Nada is the 2nd best defender of the tournament with 20 successful tackles including 2 Super tackles and 1 High 5.

Their per match team success raid percentage is 51.25.

They have earned the highest team raid points in this season- 163.

They have inflicted 10 all outs while conceding only 6 in 7 matches.

This has been the mantra for success for Dabang Delhi.

They were put under a lot of pressure in their last match against the UP Yodha's, but they held their nerve and survived. All rounder Vijay has given fantastic support as a raider. Veteran defender Manjit Chillar was in supreme touch in the last match and his advanced tackles were very useful to curb the dangerous Pardeep Narwal. Jeeva Kumar and Sandeep Narwal are strong lads who can block the path of any raider.

Dabang Delhi got a slight hiccup in the last match. But they should not have much of an issue taking care of the Jaipur Pink Panthers.

Dabang Delhi are in a zone this season where they can't go wrong. Every time they had a bad day at the office, someone has taken up the responsibility to tide them through. They have Naveen Kumar who is enough to decimate any opposition in town. Not many teams have found any solution to isolate Naveen or to keep him off the mat for long.

Jaipur Pink Panthers have a lot to work on as they take on the best team of the tournament. Though they can take inspiration from the fact that Arjun Deshwal is the 2nd best raider in the tournament. If they look forward to decode and derail Naveen Kumar, their defence will have to come up with something extraordinary.

Else it will be difficult for them to win.

Dabang Delhi will win.
