Puneri Paltan vs Dabang Delhi Match Prediction: Who will win today's Pro Kabaddi 2017 match?
In the second match on Sunday evening in the Pro Kabaddi League Season 5, it will Puneri Paltan clashing against Dabang Delhi in the Zone A encounter at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune.
While Pune has already qualified for the Super-Playoffs, Dabang Delhi will be playing for glory and to end the season on a positive note particularly post the dismal outings throughout the fifth edition.
Puneri Paltan is coming into this match on the back of a win against U Mumba in the Maharashtra derby last night while the Delhi side slumped to a defeat against the Bengaluru Bulls in their last fixture back in Jaipur.
The head-to-head between these two teams stand 2-0 in favour of Puneri Paltan and they will be eager to hammer the final nail in the coffin with the third win tonight.
Deepak Hooda will lead the attacking charge of the team particularly post the 15 raid points he amassed last night and will look to increase his personal tally. He will be assisted by Rajesh Mondal and Monu, who will come into the equation as alternate raiders. Girish Ernak was stellar in the defence last night with 8 tackle points to his credit and he is supported by the brute Sandeep Narwal on the other end in the corner position. The covers are manned by Ziaur Rehman and Ravi Kumar while Dharmaraj Cheralathan may make his presence felt, coming on as a substitute.
Dabang Delhi, on the other hand, will majorly rely on the Iranian duo of Meraj Sheykh and Abolfazl Maghsoudlou alongside Rohit Baliyan to fetch the raid points in heaps and thus keep the scoreboard ticking. R Sriram might come onto the mat if the raid points are to be amassed quickly as has been evident with the young gun's skills over the last few matches. The defence will be taken care of by the experienced Nilesh Shinde, Swapnil Shinde, Satpal and Viraj Landge, all of whom will work in tandem to keep the rival attack at bay.
