Pro Kabaddi League 2018, Match 58: Jaipur Pink Panthers vs Dabang Delhi K.C. | Match Preview and Predicted Lineups
The Jaipur Pink Panthers take on the Dabang Delhi tonight at 8 pm IST at the NSCI Dome in Mumbai.
Forced to the bottom of the Zone A standings, the Jaipur Pink Panthers failed both in offense and defense against an inspired U Mumba, as they succumbed to a disheartening 24-point loss in the opening match of the Mumbai leg.
Jaipur have been struggling in their attack throughout the season with none of their raiders able to create an impact like the raiders of the other teams. The injury to Nitin Rawal, one of the Panthers' mainstays this season, has added to Jaipur's misery.
Jaipur need to figure out a strategy and fast before the season slips out of their hands.
The Dabang, on the other hand, are coming off a 6-point win against the Haryana Steelers with an all-round display led by their defensive mainstay, Ravinder 'the Hawk' Pahal who was outstanding on the evening with his 6 tackle points.
Although not prolific, Dabang are slowly turning into a well-rounded side with significant contributions from both their defense and attack in almost every match. The only thing they lack is consistency, and if they manage to acquire that then there's no stopping them from getting into this season's playoffs.
