Dabang Delhi is in a very tricky position this season. They started off in style but the mid-season turbulence was nasty as they lost 6 matches in a row. Table toppers suddenly slipped to the 6th position. Most of their opponents decoded them. Adding to the woes, their defense has become very brittle.
Jaipur Pink Panthers have been one of the most consistent teams on the circuit. They have a balanced raiding combo as well as a strong defense. Unfortunately, they lost to the Patna Pirates in their last game. Though their defense worked well, the support raiders could not earn much.
The encounter between Dabang and Jaipur will be an interesting one. Dabang will be desperate to win every game from here while the Pink Panthers need to regroup after their loss to the Pirates. Expect fireworks and a street fight.
Former champions have looked steady and consistent this season. They have developed a trio of unbeatable raiders. Arjun Deshwal, Rahul Chaudhary, and Ajith. Most importantly each raider knows his role. This has helped the Pink Panthers win 7 out of their 12 games.
Their defense is led by Captain Sunil Kumar and supported by left corner Ankush. The Pink Panthers have conducted 115 successful team tackles in 12 games. Defender Ankush has been the surprise package as he has performed overwhelmingly. He has added spice to the Panther's defense which has helped them overcome difficult situations.
Arjun Deshwal has earned 135 raid points from 109 successful raids. This includes 8 Super 10’s.
Jaipur Pink Panthers have conducted 200 successful team raids out of their 499 team raids.
They have inflicted 21 all-outs in 12 games while conceding just 12. This has allowed them to dominate their opponents and win games easily.
The Pink Panthers won back-to-back games and then slipped against the Patna Pirates. Raiders Rahul Chaudhary and Ajith could only earn just 1 point among them. This can be considered a temporary blip but the Pink Panthers have to be careful as such momentary breakdowns in crucial games can prove harmful.
Defenders Sahul Kumar and Ankush combined well against the Pirates but finally, the earnings come from raids and not tackles. The Pink Panthers were slow to start and they also conceded 2 all-outs in the match. This is quite surprising as the Jaipur Pink Panthers are not used to giving away points via all-outs.
They will be playing their second match in 2 days and fatigue will be another challenge. This match will test their character against their arch-rivals Dabang who will be desperate to exploit any chinks in the armor of the Jaipur Pink Panthers.
The defending champions had a torrid time as they lost 6 games on the trot. This was the same team that had a 5 match-unbroken winning streak. A freak injury to Naveen Kumar in one of the matches against the Tamil Thalaiva took the Dabang downhill. Even the return of Naveen in the next match did not stop their slide. The defense of Dabang Delhi had become predictable and loose.
Fortunately, they won their last game against the Telegu Titans and Dabang will hope that the jinx is over. The defending champions have slipped to the 6th position in the points table and they need to reboot very quickly. Naveen Kumar is their only hope for the resurrection. He is the top-performing raider of the season with 146 points from 116 raids.
This included 10 Super 10’s. What has hurt Dabang is a sudden loss of confidence in their defense. In their match against the Jaipur Pink Panthers, the defending champions could score only 7 tackle points. To add to this breakdown, Dabang Delhi was all-out thrice in the match.
Dabang Delhi was guilty of the same against the Puneri Paltan where they conceded 3 all-outs in the match. This loss of steam takes away all the advantage that is achieved by Naveen in his raids.
Dabang Delhi has conceded 453 points this season which is the second-highest behind the Telegu Titans.
They have inflicted 19 all-outs while conceding 18. This leakage is a result of their performance in their last 6 games. Dabang Delhi lost to the Jaipur Pink Panthers by 5 points in their last meeting. They will have to tighten their defense as they take them on again. Dabang Delhi cannot afford to lose any games from here as they need valuable points to move up the points table and keep themselves in the hunt for the play-off.
Jaipur Pink Panthers defeated Dabang Delhi in their last match. Since then there has been a considerable change in the fortunes of both teams. Dabang Delhi has gone down the spiral while the Pink Panthers have been consistent.
Naveen Kumar will once again earn handsomely for his team. Raiders Ashu Malik and Manjeet will support him well. Right cover Ravi Kumar and left cover Vishal will handle the defense with care and target Rahul Chaudhary and Ajith. Defenders Krishnan Dhull and Vijay Kumar will come up with innovative moves to reduce Arjun Deshwal’s efficiency. Dabang Delhi will try and exploit the fact that the Pink Panthers will be playing their second game in 2 days.
Jaipur raiders Rahul Chaudhary and Ajith will work together to help increase the raiding income. Arjun Deshwal will score another Super 10. Captain Sunil Kumar and left corner Ankush will target Naveen Kumar and Ashu Malik. Defenders Abishekh and Sahul Kumar will have to avoid unforced errors and advanced tackles.
Jaipur may find it difficult to repeat their winning performance against the defending champions.
Dabang Delhi will win.
