Pro Kabaddi 2019 Playoffs: Ranking the 6 teams based on their previous playoffs record
- All the six teams have featured in the knockout stages earlier and here's a look at their records in the playoffs so far:
#4 Dabang Delhi K.C.
Matches - 2, Won - 1, Lost - 1
The table-toppers of this season, Dabang Delhi K.C. had qualified for the playoffs last year as well, where they conquered the challenge from Bengal Warriors in the Eliminator 2 match but they could not defeat U.P. Yoddha in the Eliminator 3 match.
Though they have been a part of the tournament since Season 1, Dabang Delhi K.C. have never featured in the final. This year, Naveen Kumar and Co. will try to pull off an epic performance in the semi-finals to break the jinx.
#3 U.P. Yoddha
Matches - 4, Won - 2, Lost - 2
U.P. Yoddha had made a late entry into the Pro Kabaddi League but they have played some fantastic kabaddi ever since their debut. The Lucknow-based franchise had qualified for the playoffs in Season 5 where they suffered a loss to Puneri Paltan in Eliminator 1.
In 2018, they made a heroic comeback in the zonal matches to qualify for the playoffs and Rishank Devadiga’s side even made it to the Qualifier 2 match after recording victories in Eliminator 1 and Eliminator 3. Though they lost to the Gujarat Fortune Giants in that match; they had won the hearts of the fans with their stellar performances.
With Nitesh Kumar leading the team this season, expect them to repeat the same performances once again.Published 14 Oct 2019, 16:45 IST
