Rahul Chaudhari vs Sachin Shingade is going to be the battle that will decide the game tonight in my opinion.

The start is just 15 minutes away. You do not want to miss anything!!
Good evening friends and welcome to the live coverage of the Pro Kabaddi 2016 Season 4 game between Dabang Delhi and Telugu Titans at the Patliputra Sports Complex in Patna. The way this tournament has progresses is quite unbelievable and what we saw last night was quite amazing and shocking at the same time. Dabang Delhi, a team lurking at the bottom of the points table, absolutely demolished Patna Pirates, condemning them to a thumping 33-15 defeat.
After yesterday’s action and stunning victory, Dabang Delhi take on Telugu Titans in a clash that they would love to win and move upwards in the Pro Kabaddi 4 points table. However, we do not know what can happen, given last night’s developments and results. From what is on hand, any team, on a given day, can beat any opponent and that too quite comfortably.
Dabang Delhi will go into today’s match with a lot of confidence due to yesterday’s win and somehow, they looked in cruise control mode yesterday. Coach Sagar Badekar had said in one of the early matches that he would like to have more time with Meraj Sheykh and that would help the do wonders. Last night’s game showed exactly what he was talking about as Meraj led the team from front and took it upon him to take his team through.
However, the real star of the match for Dabang Delhi was Sachin Shingade, who is perhaps the best defender in Pro Kabaddi 4 alongside Manjeet Chhillar and Mohit Chillar. His partner in crime, Sanket Chavan, is not half bad either and the way those two combined last night to curtail Pardeep Narwal, it would take one tough raider to get touch points off them. They might have defended well but Delhi’s exceptional attacking prowess was the reason behind them winning the game.
Meraj Sheykh and T Selvamani were stunning on the night and continuously tormented the likes of Dharmaraj Cheralathan and Kuldeep, who had been in stunning form up until last night’s match. The biggest talking point of the night was Sagar Bandekar dropping captain and star raider Kashiling Adake, who was out of form and could not handle the pressure of leading the team. Will that happen tonight again? We will have to wait and see.
Sagar Bandekar’s men will be up against Telugu Titans, who have had a mixed tournament up till now and need to get their tournament back on track with a win. They have played six matches till now, winning two, losing the other four. The team from Hyderabad began their campaign by losing three games on the trot but have managed to win two games out of their last three.
The way they defeated Bengal Warriors by a gap of 17 points and that victory was quite stunning, showing what they were actually capable of doing. Following that, their victory over U Mumba, preceded by their loss to Bengaluru Bulls, depicted the kind of character the team possesses. Rahul Chaudhari and Sandeep Narwal have been at the helm of things for Telugu Titans and the former’s duel against Sachin Shingade would be quite interesting to witness.
