Pro Kabaddi League 2018, Match 93: Dabang Delhi K.C. vs Puneri Paltan | Match Preview and Predicted Lineups
The home side, Dabang Delhi take on the Puneri Paltan in a Zone A clash of Pro Kabaddi 2018 at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex in Delhi today, Sunday at 9 pm IST.
Dabang Delhi is coming off a 7-point defeat (34-41) against U Mumba in yesterday evening's encounter. Their defense was inadequate on the occasion as they failed to stop the raiding exploits of Siddharth Desai, as he managed to run away with crucial raid points which cost the Dabangs the match.
The raiding unit of the Dabangs was much more sorted and efficient with Naveen Kumar scoring 12 raid points, and Chandran Ranjit contributing with 7 points. But, it was their defence, especially Ravinder Pahal who looked tentative on the night and could manage to score just a single tackle point.
Puneri Paltan is coming off a heavy defeat, by 15 points (20-35), at the hands of the Gujarat Fortunegiants. Pune's players, with the exception of Sandeep Narwal and Girish Ernak, looked clueless on the night as they were inefficient and ineffective in their performance.
Sandeep Narwal scored 7 points, one raid, and six tackle points, whereas Girish Ernak contributed with 4 tackle points whereas the rest of their side crumbled before their eyes.
Delhi has won one (Match 12: 41-36) and lost one (Match 41: 27-31) against the Puneri Paltan this season and would look to tilt the win-loss ratio in their favor after tonight's encounter.
