The return of Naveen Kumar helped defeat the much stronger Bengal Warriors in the last match. Dabang Delhi got back to winning ways as they have moved to the 9th place in the points table. The Jaipur Pink Panthers survived the Tamil Thalaiva in their last match. Jaipur won the low scoring game by a margin of just 1 point. It was a tactical blunder from the Thalaiva that helped Jaipur go past the finish line. 

Jaipur Pink Panthers are placed 3rd in the points table after playing 7 matches. Their rivalry with Dabang Delhi is well known. This will be a face-off between young gun Arjun Deshwal and Naveen Kumar. This will also be a direct contest between Jaipur defender Ankush and Delhi custodians Ashish and Yogesh. Jaipur Pink Panthers have a success rate of about 38% in team tackles while Dabang Delhi’s efficiency is around 35%. Dabang Delhi needs to win this match. They desperately require points to move up the points table. Unfortunately, Delhi has not defeated the Pink Panthers since season 7.

Jaipur Pink Panthers Preview

The defending champions have had a lukewarm season 10. They are placed 3rd in the points table after winning 4 out of their 7 matches. They may not have been ruthless or dominant, but the Pink Panthers are on course. MVP of season 9, Arjun Deshwal is their trump card. He has scored 64 raid points which includes 3 Super 10’s. He will be expected to improve this efficiency as the season progresses. 

Jaipur Pink Panthers have multiple options in their raiding department. Veteran Ajith has performed as usual while youngster Bhavani Rajput has been used as the 3rd raider. Jaipur have been generally defensive in their approach. This almost cost them their last match against the Tamil Thalaiva. In a low scoring encounter, the Pink Panthers escaped with a 1 point victory courtesy a tactical blunder by their opponents. 

Fortunately Captain Sunil Kumar and Iranian defender Reza Mirbagheri saved the day. Reza who scored a Hi 5 in the last match. Jaipur will be expecting left corner Ankush to improve his sharpness at the earliest. He was one of the top defenders of season 9, but Ankush has executed just 13 successful tackles in 7 matches. He is not in the top 10 defenders. Jaipur Pink Panthers have had nervous moments in some of the matches. Captain Sunil Kumar has saved them on these occasions with Super tackles. The Pink Panthers have conceded 8 all-outs in 7 matches and most of these have come early in the first half. Hence Jaipur is always in recovery mode till half-time. This forces them to play safe instead of dominating their opponents. Due to these issues, the Pink Panthers have come close to losing matches. They defeated the Patna Pirates by 1 point last week. They had a similar experience against the Tamil Thaialva in the last match. These situations are too close for comfort as Jaipur also lags in scoring which affects their overall score difference. 

The defending champions will be up against a resurgent Dabang Delhi. With Naveen Kumar back in action, Jaipur defenders will have to work overtime to tame him. Jaipur Pink Panthers need to change their strategy so that they can register a big win over the former champions.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Fans of the former champions were elated to see superstar Naveen Kumar back on the mat against the Bengal Warriors in the last match. Naveen not only guided them to a well-deserved victory but he also scored a memorable Super 10. This helped Delhi score its 3rd victory of the season. Dabang Delhi has be blowing hot and cold in the initial part of season 10. With Naveen not available against the Puneri Paltan, the former champions were routed. But Delhi came back in style by defeating the strong Bengal Warriors to keep their hope alive. 

Naveen Kumar surpassed 1000 PKL points as he scored 11 points in the last match. He is one of the legends of the league. Dabang Delhi were aggressive since the first raid and this paid off as they took an early lead. Delhi inflicted an all-out in the first 10 minutes and led by 7 points at half-time. The former champions scored 8 tackle points in the first 20 minutes of the match, making sure that the Bengal Warriors were done and dusted. The Delhi defense was hot and spicy as they trapped Bengal captain Maninder. Though Nitin Kumar kept up the pressure by scoring 9 raid points for the Warriors, Delhi defenders Yogesh and Ashish were up to the mark as both of them scored a Hi 5 each. Such was the dominance of the Dabang defense that Bengal Warriors could not survive the onslaught. 

Dabang Delhi needs to be consistent with their strategy. Though they have plans to adapt as per their opponents, but Delhi seems to go on the defensive very often. This almost hurt them against the Patna Pirates and the Tamil Thalaiva. Naveen Kumar is very essential to their scheme of things. But youngster Ashu Malik has also impressed in some games. Dabang Delhi has some concerns regarding their third raiding option. 

But the former champions will be very happy with the performance of defenders Yogesh and Ashish. Both have punched above their weight. Ashish replaced veteran Vishal Bharadwaj as the left corner and this move has been beneficial. Dabang does not have a great record against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Delhi has won just 7 out of their 20 encounters and they have not defeated the defending champions since season 7. This will be the toughest match for Dabang Delhi as they plan to script a huge upset.

Battle of former champions is expected to be explosive. Dabang Delhi have won a couple of matches which were too close to comfort. But they will be relieved to see Captain Naveen Kumar back on the mat. He will be aggressive against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Ashu Malik will support him effectively. But Dabang Delhi may not be able to score heavily. Dabang defense will be under tremendous pressure. They may be able to trap Arjun Deshwal but Delhi will find it tough to rein in the other Jaipur raiders. This will induce a lot of unforced errors from Dabang Delhi.

Jaipur will unleash Arjun Deshwal who will score a Super 10. He will match Naveen Kumar in every move and both young raiders will entertain their respective fans. The Jaipur defense will trouble Delhi through the match. The first half will be explosive but the second half will see consolidation from both teams. The match may witness a few all-outs from both teams but Jaipur will have an upper hand in the second half. This will be a tough match for Dabang Delhi.

Jaipur Pink Panthers will win.
