For those of you who have just tuned in, Telugu Titans have shrugged off Puneri Paltan to claim a 32-29 win. Rahul Chaudhari and Sandeep Narwal were the destroyers in chief as the former got to 400 raid points in Pro Kabaddi history. But our focus is now on the game between Bengaluru Bulls and Dabang Delhi. We are nearing to the start of the game. Stay with us.
Hello and welcome to the second match of the day, which is going to see a North South clash as Bengaluru Bulls will take on the Dabang Delhi in their last home game. The teams are in desperate need for wins as they languish at 6th and 7th position in the league table. Bulls are running out of time as they are going to play their 11th game today and the last of their home fixture.
They have dented their chances significantly by losing the first three of their home games and are desperate need of pulling things back with a big win. They couldn’t have got a better opposition for that than the team from the capital who have looked woefully out of form in the first half of the season 4. The stats tell the story for Delhi who have won just 2 contests and lost two more than that to have never managed to climb to the top 4 of the table. If the team continues playing the way they did in the first half, the bottom half is where they are likely to end their season at as well.
Much of Delhi’s poor run has been caused by Kashiling Adake’s lost form this season. The management made a huge mistake by handling the best performing player of the team the captaincy armband and have paid for it by seeing him fail to conjure up any sort of form whatsoever in the first seven contests. The management might have repeated the mistake once again as Meraj Sheykh, who has looked a cut above the rest in the Delhi outfit, has been handed captaincy duties.
It will be interesting to see whether the Iranian can lift the team on his shoulders, something Kashiling Adake found difficult to. Besides, how long will Delhi have to wait for Kashiling Adake’s return to form? Will it be the night for one of the most accomplished raider of Pro Kabaddi?
Bengaluru Bulls, playing their 4th match in 4 days won’t have a lot of energy left in them but they know they can’t afford to lose today if they have to stay in the hunt for a place in the
first four on the place. The team’s problem of over reliance on Rohit Kumar hasn’t found any solution. Oppositions have figured it out that once Kumar is sent to the bench, the threat of the Bulls’ is reduced to less than half. The defence has come a cropper despite the presence of names like Surender Nada and Mohit Chhillar.
Both the teams, despite their dismal season have seen two youngsters grow in the 4th edition. Sachin Shingade for Dabang Delhi and Ashish Kumar for the Bulls have performed out of their skins and both the teams will be looking towards them to inspiration as the action unfolds in front of us in the next few minutes. Don’t go anywhere.
KEY TALKING POINTS
Bulls would like to end their horrible home leg on a winning note. Tonight, their captain, Surender Nada at the left corner will be the key man for them as Delhi have two quality right side raiders in Kashiling Adake and Meraj Sheykh. Bengaluru's cover defenders has let their team down so far but their best defender Mohit Chillar has lived up to his expectations as he is leading the charts for Best Defenders.
Delhi's left cover defender, Sachin Shingade has been the only bright spark for them this season. Bengaluru have 2 right plank raiders, Rohit Kumar and Deepak Dahiya that is, their right cover D. Suresh Kumar and left corner Anil Kumar should take the responsibilities of tackling tonight.
