UP Yodha gave their fans a pre new-year gift as they defeated the Bengaluru Bulls by just 1 point. They came back from the brink to fox the Bulls into submission. This was one of the most exciting performance by the UP Yodha. They will certainly aim at repeating this against Dabang Delhi. UP is placed 8th in the points table after playing 8 matches. They won a match after losing 2 consecutive games. Hence they will feel relieved as they take on former champions Delhi on their home turf at Noida. 

Dabang Dehi have had an average season. They have won just 3 out of their 7 matches. They settled for a TIE in their last match against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Dabang led by half-time with some exciting tackles in low scoring match. But they ran out of steam in the second half as Naveen Kumar was kept out for at least 15 minutes. Delhi will be happy that they could force a TIE as the Pink Panthers almost stole the match from them. Both teams are at a critical position in the league. Both need to win as many games as possible and that too with better margins. The Northern derby will be an entertaining match as both teams will attack relentlessly. Expect fireworks this winter.

U.P. Yoddha Preview

The UP Yodha displayed class and tenacity in their last match against the Bengaluru Bulls. This was an important moment in the league for the Yodha as they came back in style to steal the show. Both teams began cautiously as the Bulls trapped Pardeep Narwal consistently. Bengaluru Bulls defender Vishal was all over Pardeep with his wrestling style waist locks. But the Yodha got a slender lead at half-time as they reduced the Bulls to just 1 player after 20 minutes. Pardeep Narwal bounced back in the second half to register a Super 10 while defender Sumit was lethal with his tackles as the Yodha inflicted 2 all-outs in the last 10 minutes of the match. This spirited performance will surely help UP as they need a boost to jump into the top 5 in the points table. 

The Yodha defense hunted in style. This is one of their assets apart from raiders Pardeep and Surender Gill. UP Yodha needs to maintain the momentum in every match. They had a string of below average performances last week as they lost 3 out of their 4 matches. They were forced to settle for a TIE against the Bengal Warriors. Hence a victory after 4 matches is a blessing in disguise for the Yodha. UP has also accepted the fact that Pardeep Narwal will be targeted by every team and he may not be able to score big. But Surender Gill has turned out to be the perfect partner for Pardeep as both end up scoring enough raid points. Left corner Sumit has been phenomenal with his ankle holds and blocks. He has executed 21 successful tackles in 8 matches. He was also the player of the match against the Benglauru Bulls. Defender Nitesh Kumar and all-rounder Gurdeep have contributed in style and hence this trio of defenders make UP Yodha invincible.

Still the Yodha finds itself at the 8th spot in the points table with only 3 victories this season. They need to revitalize themselves so as to put in some consistent performances. UP Yodha has a decent record against Dabang Delhi. UP has won 6 out of their 9 matches. Though UP used to dominate Delhi till season 6, Dabang has given them a run for their money off-late. Hence this will be an interesting northern derby as it will be a face-off between 2 legends of the game, viz Pardeep Narwal and Naveen Kumar.

Dabang Delhi K.C. Preview

Former champions had a lukewarm start to the season as they fumbled in their first match. Dabang Delhi were outwitted by Tamil Thalaiva. Though Dabang Delhi has won a few matches post a false start, they haven’t set the mat on fire. Dabang is placed 9th in the points table after playing 7 matches. They have won just 3 games in the season. Dabang Delhi is heavily dependent on Naveen Kumar. He was not available in one of the games and Delhi was hammered in that match. 

Delhi settled for a TIE in their last match against the Jaipur Pink Panthers. Naveen Kumar was decoded by the opponents as he could score just 4 raid points. Raider Ashu Malik did score 7 raid points, but with none of their raiders scoring a Super 10, it was a burden on the Delhi defenders. Fortunately they resonated to force a TIE. Veteran defender Vishal Bharadwaj scored 4 tackle points while right cover Mohit scored 3 tackle points. It was surprising that Delhi did not use their in-form defender Himmat Antil in this match. 

Major concern with Dabang Delhi is their third raider. If in case Naveen is not able to score, they have the option of Ashu Malik, but nothing beyond him. Dabang has tried raiders Manjeet and Meetu Sharma but none of them have fired. Hence Delhi becomes a defense heavy team. Their success rate in team tackles is just about 37%. Fortunately, Dabang has inflicted 10 all-outs in their matches while conceding 9. This has nullified the advantage of 10 all-outs. But defense seems to be their strength as left cover Himmat Antil has been impressive. Veteran Vishal Bharadwaj was scratchy in the first match but he made amends in the second game by scoring 4 tackle points. He is crucial at the left corner position but he is also prone to regular unforced errors. He did pick up a yellow card in the last game due to his aggressive antics. 

Dabang Delhi have given a tough fight to the UP Yodha in the last few seasons. Both teams have their weaknesses and form issues. But this will be an ultimate face-off between Naveen Kumar and his idol, the “dubki king” Pardeep Narwal.

Welcome to the contest of legends. Pardeep Narwal with over 1600 PKL raid points will be up against young Naveen Kumar who has just completed 1000 PKL raid points. This will be an epic battle between two fine Indian kabaddi players. Dabang Delhi has a few issues to be sorted. If Naveen is targeted by the UP defenders, Delhi does not have a back-up plan. Naveen will score a Super 10 but the Delhi defenders may not be able to rein in Pardeep or Surender Gill. Hence this will be a slippery issue for Dabang Delhi. They need to win this match desperately.

UP Yodha will be rejuvenated by their victory over the Bengaluru Bulls. Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill will exploit the fragile Delhi defense. UP will race to a big lead by half-time. Defenders Nitesh Kumar and Sumit will regulate the Delhi earning with some precise tackles. This match is very crucial for the UP Yodha too as a win will help them catapult into the top 5. Since the match is being played at Noida, the fans will have the best time as Pardeep will be up against the young vibes of Naveen Kumar. This match will be a celebration of the beautiful festival called “Kabaddi”.
