Dabang Delhi had a mild scare before they took on the Patna Pirates yesterday. They had to win to game or they would have slipped down further in the points table. But in a low scoring game, Dabang Delhi beat the Pirates by 3 points. The Pirates too introduced 4 new players in their team as they had already qualified for the next stage. They take on the Telegu Titans in their last league game. The Titans have already bowed out of the league with just 1 victory in 21 games. This will be their last league game too and they would like to win this for their fans. But Dabang Delhi has to sort out a few issues as they move ahead. Naveen Express could earn just 1 point against a second string Patna Pirates. It was the efforts of defenders Manjit Chillar and Krishnan Dhull that they were able to win this low scoring game. Dabang will try out younger players against the Titans as this will also give some well deserved rest to Naveen Kumar. The Titans will also look forward to beating Dabang Delhi and give a consolation win to their fans.
A stock which has great fundamentals but has not performed in the market, that has been the story of the Titans. Super Raider Siddharth Desai could not get into rhythm quickly and got injured very soon. The Titans were never able to take charge of the situation and they kept losing matches regularly. They occupied the last position in the points table very early in the season and continue to stay there. After playing 21 games, they could win only 1 while they were able to TIE 4 games. As this will be their last game, they could try out their bench which has some Korean and Kenyan players. Raiders Rajneesh and Ankit Beniwal served them well but the Titans could not get much out of their defence. Veteran Rohit Kumar also fizzled out mid-season and the Titans were left to fend for themselves.
But the Titans have entertained everyone this season. They came close to beating top sides but could not deliver the killer blow.
Raider Rajneesh still has the highest average individual raid point score of 8.75. He will be proud of his performance and a lot of franchisees will be interested in him for the next season. In the 21 matches that they played, the Titans executed 309 successful team raids out of their 864 raids. They also executed 183 successful team tackles. They conceded 811 points in all along with 33 all-outs, both highest in their category.
As this is their last match, they would like to forget all these statistics and enjoy their mat time. They can still give their best and win the game for their fans.
Dabang Delhi has had a dream run his season. They have been one of the best teams in the tournament. They suffered some injury issues mid-season with Naveen and Joginder out for a few games but they came back in style. In their last few games they looked a bit fatigued which forced them down the points table. Naveen Kumar was able to win just 2 points in his last 2 games and this is a big worry for Dabang. They beat a second string Patna Pirate side yesterday to qualify for the play-off and this came as a big relief for them.
They will feel more secure as they take on the Telegu Titans in their last game. But a lot of thought has to be given to a few chronic problems. Dabang need to revitalize their team as they move into the knock outs. They could give their younger players an opportunity to play today as they have already qualified. This will give much needed rest to the seniors and veterans.
All rounder Vijay has been a blessing in disguise as he has performed beyond expectations in raids. Though Ajay Thakur is off colour, veterans Manjit Chillar, Joginder Narwal and Jeeva Kumar have formed a solid impregnable wall in the defence.
Jeeva and Manjit have executed some daring successful advanced tackles in earlier matches.
Telegu Titans may not be able to trouble this fearless combination too much as the Dabang’s will look forward to win their final league game.
This will be a match where Dabang Delhi will try out new players while the Telegu Titans will give their best for their fans. Both teams could play second string sides as Patna Pirates did yesterday. This will allow us to enjoy some carefree and comic moves as both teams know their fate in the tournament. The Titans could try our players like Galla Raju, Ramakrishna, Akash Arsul as well as some international players like Mohamed Shihas, Japanese Abe Tetsuro and Korean Hyunsu Park. Dabang can try out youngsters like Iranian Malak and Emad. This will be a high scoring game as both teams will rush in with quick raids and entertaining moves. This could be the second victory of the season for Telegu Titans.
Telegu Titans will win.
