This is an encounter that should light up the eyes of the fans. Match 56 of Pro Kabaddi Season 7 will see Naveen Kumar’s Dabang Delhi KC in action against Pawan Kumar’s Bengaluru Bulls.

Dabang Delhi have played the fewest matches (7) so far and still find themselves comfortably positioned at number 3 in the points table. It speaks a lot about their performance this season.

Naveen Kumar, their rising young raider, has been exceptional so far. He has scored 6 Super 10s in 7 matches. He also has an average of 10.7 raid points per match and there has hardly been any game where he hasn’t been up to the mark.

Chandran Ranjit has 43 raid points this season and has played the supporting role to perfection. His performance has ensured that he makes his way into the team before Meraj Sheykh - the superstar from Iran, who hasn’t been at his usual best.

Captain Joginder Narwal and right corner Ravinder Pahal make this Delhi defense tougher to breach. Cover defenders Vishal Mane and Vijay have executed some well-timed dashes. So overall this team has looked in fine touch.

Bengaluru Bulls are 5th in the points table and the reason for their rise has been Pawan’s brilliant show on the field. He just doesn’t seem to stop. 103 raid points, 5 Super 10s and a jaw-dropping average of 11.44 - Pawan has got it all and will be the key for Bengaluru against Delhi.

The Bulls captain Rohit Kumar has had a below average season by his standards but he’ll hope to make it better. Defenders Saurabh Nandal and Ankit were very good in the last game but it’s not the most intimidating defensive front in the game, especially against the likes of Naveen Kumar. But Delhi cannot take these sturdy defenders lightly.

Predicted Starting 7s

Dabang Delhi KC: Naveen Kumar, Chandran Ranjit, Meraj Sheykh, Vishal Mane, Vijay, Joginder Narwal, Ravinder Pahal

Bengaluru Bulls: Pawan Sehrawat, Rohit Kumar (C), Sumit Singh, Ankit, Saurabh Nandal, Amit Sheoran, Vijay Kumar

Match Prediction

Dabang Delhi have ticked all the boxes so far. But their defenders will be under some pressure to survive the ‘Pawan storm’

Bengaluru are highly dependent on Pawan’s performance and if he stays off the field for a longer time, they will be in trouble. Their defense is decent but a little inexperienced.

Dabang Delhi could beat Bengaluru Bulls in Delhi tonight.
