PKL 2019, Match 46: Bengal Warriors vs Dabang Delhi K.C. - Predicting each team's playing 7
With 5 wins in 6 matches, Joginder Narwal's Dabang Delhi K.C. have silenced all its critics and defied pre-season expectations. The trio of Naveen Kumar, Chandran Ranjit, and Saeid Ghaffari have done well for the team. However, they will have to continue their fine form when they meet Maninder Singh's Bengal Warriors in the next game.
Bengal Warriors have just one point lesser than Dabang Delhi K.C. which shows how evenly matched the two teams are. For the Warriors, Mohammad Nabibakhsh and Baldev Singh have been the X-factors who have contributed to the team's success.
When the two teams locked horns the last time, Dabang Delhi defeated the Kolkata-based franchise by 6 points. Thus, the Bengal Warriors will try to avenge their loss in the upcoming encounter. Here's how both the teams may line up for this clash -
While the raiding department of the team featuring K. Prapanjan, Maninder Singh and Mohammad Nabibakhsh has been a strong point, the same cannot be said of the team's defence.
The quartet of Viraj Vishnu Landge, Rinku Narwal, Baldev Singh and Vijin Thangadurai will have to step up and deliver the goods against Dabang Delhi K.C. because even the smallest of mistakes may cost Bengal the game.
