Jaipur Pink Panthers vs Dabang Delhi Match Prediction: Who will win today's Pro Kabaddi 2017 match?
In Match No. 83 of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 5, the Jaipur Pink Panthers will clash against the Dabangs from Delhi at the Harivansh Tana Bhagat Indoor Stadium in Ranchi, Jharkhand.
The first match that these two teams played against each other at the start of the season in the Hyderabad leg ended 26-30 in favour of Dabang Delhi and hence Jaipur will be eager to reverse the result this time around.
Jaipur Pink Panthers is coming into this match on the back of a tie against the Haryana Steelers while Dabang Delhi, in their last clash, succumbed to a defeat against the Steelers.
Jaipur Pink Panthers will now be bolstered by the presence of skipper Manjeet Chhillar who made his comeback in the last match post a long injury lay-off while Jasvir Singh also returned to the playing fold after missing one match due to a slight niggle. Alongside them, Tushar Patil, the high-flying raider also featured in the starting seven but was not able to contribute in a great measure to the attack. Pawan Kumar and Nitin Rawal led the attack for the team and the latter even picked up a Super-10. The defence was manned by the likes of Somvir Shekhar and Santhapanaselvam and there are most likely to continue in today's encounter as well.
Dabang Delhi, on the other hand, missed the services of their key man, skipper Meraj Sheykh and defender Nilesh Shinde in the last match and as per the statement of the coach, they will not take to the mat against Jaipur as well since they're recovering from injuries prior to their home leg which will commence on Friday.
Thus, Delhi will have Abolfazl Maghsoudlou, Rohit Baliyan and Anand Patil leading the attack for the side with their raids. With Bajirao Hodage being rested, the defence will be manned by Sunil and Satpal along with Viraj Landge and Swapnil Shinde who will look to keep the Jaipur attack at bay.
Jaipur Pink Panthers vs Dabang Delhi match prediction
The advantage will tilt in favour of the Pink Panthers with their elite players in the likes of Jasvir and Manjeet leading the team of young guns. Dabang Delhi is likely to struggle owing to the fact that they will feature a depleted force in the absence of Meraj and Nilesh Shinde. Thus, the Jaipur raiders particularly will look to bank on this and fetch more points against the considerably weaker defence of their rivals.
