Dabang Delhi has revitalized itself after it dominated the Gujarat Giants in their last match. Delhi has been having issues as Naveen Kuamr was not available for some games. His absence did not bother Delhi as captain Ashu Malik scored a Super 10. With the help of young raider Manjeet, they made sure that Dabang was able to dominate the Giants as they won the match quite comfortably. The Patna Pirates too saw a resurgence of their fortunes as they defeated the UP Yodha in an entertaining match. 

Though Pardeep Narwal scored 21 points, the Pirates exploited the weak UP defense to win the match by a margin of 7 points. The Patna raiders had a field day as Sachin scored a Super 10 while Manjeet scored 9 raid points. Captain Neeraj Kumar was lethal with his tackles as he earned a Hi 5. Can the Pirates script a similar coup against Dabang Delhi who are without Naveen Kumar? Both teams have been consistently inconsistent. Both teams have recovered from a bad phase to push themselves in the top 5. Hence this will be a tough match for both teams.

Patna Pirates Preview

Blowing hot and cold through the season, the Pirates have somehow been able to keep their head above the water. The Pirates are placed 5th in the points table with back to back victories. But they have won just 5 out of their 9 matches. This inconsistency keeps them moving up and down the points table. They look unbeatable on a day while they are looted by the weakest teams on other occasions. They had a decent outing in their last match as they defeated the UP Yodha by 7 points. Before this match, they got the better of Haryana Steelers. These consecutive victories have given some solace to their fans. 

Raiders Manjeet and Sachin are back to their old ways. They are earning raid points consistently and that has helped the Pirates bounce back. Sachin scored a Super 10 against the UP Yodha while Manjeet scored a Super 10 against the Haryana Steelers. Defender Krishnan has scored 9 tackle points in these 2 matches which has lifted the spirits of the Pirates. All-rounder Ankit and captain Neeraj Kumar have improved their hunting in the last few matches. 

Because of the improved raiding, the Pirates have a success rate of almost 43% in team raids which is next to U Mumba. Their efficiency in team tackles is just about 36% which is a cause of concern. This sudden breakdown in their defense has resulted in 4 losses out of 9 matches. They have inflicted 15 all-outs on their opponents while conceding 11 in 9 matches. This has nullified the efforts of their raiders leading the Pirates to lose close matches. 

They will be up against a strong Dabang Delhi who are looking lethal without Naveen Kumar. This will be one of the biggest challenge for the Patna defenders. If Naveen is back, then it will be a mammoth task for Patna Pirate. They have always given a tough fight to Dabang Delhi. Patna has won 8 out of their 17 encounters with Delhi. The Pirates have lost 8 matches too. Hence this match will be very significant for Patna as they will be looking forward to win this match and jump into the top 3 of the points table.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Former champions are back in cruise control post a few blunders. The absence of Naveen Kumar left them shocked in the last few matches but Dabang has recovered. They defeated the Gujarat Giants in tough encounter to claim the 4th spot in the points table. The recovery was initiated by captain Ashu Malik along with young raider Manjeet. Both earned 20 raid points between them. Along with the help of their defense, Delhi was able to overcome the challenge posed by Gujarat. Dabang Delhi was slow to start was they suffered an all-out very early in the first half. But they maintained composure to bounce back in the second half. With 12 raid points, 6 tackle points and an all-out they scripted a heist to shock the Gujarat Giants. 

All this in the absence of Naveen Kumar is commendable. Delhi has not lost a match in their last 4 outings. They did settle for a TIE against the defending champions but it was worth it. The absence of Naveen opens a pandora’s box for Dabang Delhi. Not only they are under pressure during raids, their defense too crumbles under pressure. Delhi does not have any of its defenders in the top 10. Bulk of their scoring was done by Naveen. But Captain Ashu Malik has been punching above his weight. He has scored 29 raid points in his last 3 matches which includes 2 Super 10’s. Defenders Yogesh and Ashish have been consistent while Mohit and left cover Vikrant need to improve their efficiency. 

Delhi has a success rate of 42% in team raids while their efficiency in team tackles is just about 39%. Champion side have this success rate above 40% in both departments. 

Dabang Delhi will hope that Naveen Kumar returns for this match. They have got their act together in his absence, but Delhi cannot continue this without Superstar Naveen. They will have a tough time against the Patna Pirates who are peaking at the right time. Dabang has won 8 out of their 17 matches against the Pirates. They have lost 8 matches too. Delhi had a whitewash over Patna in season 7 and 8. But last year the Patna Pirates defeated them in one of the league matches. Dabang Delhi will be concerned about its defense as it gets ready to lock horns with the Pirates.

Welcome to Mumbai for the clash between the Patna Pirates and Dabang Delhi. Both teams have gone through rough patches. Both teams have recharged themselves with consecutive victories. This will be a face-off between the young raiders of both teams. Patna raiders Sachin and Manjeet will pose a threat to the fragile Delhi defense. Patna Captain Neeraj Kumar will have to complement defenders Krishnan and Ankit’s efforts. One of them will score a Hi 5. But the same defense leaked a lot of points against UP Yodha in the last match.

Dabang Delhi will sincerely hope that Naveen Kumar returns back for this match. In his absence, Ashu Malik and Manjeet Sharma will do the needful. One of them will score a Super 10. Manjeet will trouble the Patna defense with his agility and flexibility. Though the Delhi defense too have a few cracks, they may just survive the Pirates onslaught. Defenders Yogesh and Ashish will complement the earnings of the raiders. One of them will score a Hi 5. The second half of the match will be very entertaining as both teams will go for the kill.

This will be a TIE.
