Pro Kabaddi League 2017 Season 5: Five player battles to watch out for in the Delhi leg
Season 5 of the Pro Kabaddi League has been action-packed and we head into the Delhi leg of the tournament as teams look to seize momentum going into the playoffs.
Dabang Delhi have had a tough season so far and would be looking to capitalise on their home leg to string some wins together as they look to salvage their season.
Meraj Sheykh is Delhi's main man and as an all-rounder, he will have responsibilities on both sides of the mat if the Eagles are to achieve good results at home.
With six matches for the home side in the next week, here are five of the most entertaining player battles to watch out for:
#1 Surinder Singh (U Mumba) vs Meraj Sheykh (Dabang Delhi)
The defensive strongman for Mumbai, Surinder has been immense in helping hold the defense together. With 39 tackle points from 15 matches, Singh has used his physical strength and athleticism to great effect.
Faced against Meraj Sheykh, the Mumba man will have to be on the top of his game to ensure that his side secure the win they need to keep themselves in contention for the playoffs.
Sheykh has been Delhi's raiding star, having scored 69 points in his 14 matches. His ability to combine his defensive duties with his raiding responsibilities has seen him become the team's star.
The Iranian's physical style of play will make him an important player in this match as Delhi look to get their season on track.
