Dabang Delhi vs Telugu Titans: The Eagles hope for a winning start at home
Previewing the Eagles' encounter against Telugu Titans
Delhi-based franchise Dabang Delhi KC will take on Telugu Titans in their first home game of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi season 3. With just 1 win under their belt so far, the Eagles will be hoping to turn their fortunes around in their home leg. With just 5 matches remaining, they will need to give it their all to ensure they get maximum points to end the league on a high note.
The two teams met earlier in the season at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Vizag where the home side came out victorious 45-34 with Rahul Chaudhari and Rohit Baliyan scoring 11 points each to take the match away from the visitors. The Eagles’ Kashling Adake and Surjeet Singh scored 12 and 10 points respectively but were not able to stop the Titans from registering their 2nd win of the campaign.
For the Eagles, a lot would depend on how do they approach the game. They would be playing 4 straight matches in front of their home crowd for which they need to gain some momentum from the word go and give something to the home crowd to cheer about.
Their 2 in-form players, Selvamani K and Ravinder Pahal would have to play a huge a role if they are hoping to get something out of the tie. It would be an interesting battle to watch between star defender Ravinder Pahal and star raider Rahul Chaudhari, who has not been performing well since he has come back from national team duty.
Kashiling, on the other hand, would be hoping to repeat the heroics he managed against the same opposition in the last edition of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi. Kashi went on to make an individual record of scoring most points (24) by a single player in one match, a record which is destined to be there in the record books for a long long time.
The organisers could not have picked a better match-up to kick start the Delhi leg and the LIVE telecast of the match will start at 20:00 IST.
