Lights! Camera! Action! Pro Kabaddi 2022 has reached it's last leg and the action has moved to the Dome @ NSCI, Sardar Vallabhai Patel Stadium in Mumbai for the Playoffs! And what an encounter we have to kick-off the proceedings! It will be Bengaluru Bulls locking horns with Dabang Delhi K.C.! 

It has been quite the season for the Bulls after what was a decent auction for them. They had a terrific campaign in the league stages of the tournament and just about made it to the top-two. However, some hurdles towards the end of the tournament meant that they had to settle for the third spot. Bharat in himself is an unstoppable force and it will be interesting to see how he can perform in the pressure situations in the playoffs. Vikash Kandola is a seasoned campaigner and can be the X-factor in the pressure situations. Their defense has been rock-solid over the past few games and they will be hoping to suppress the Delhi raiders. 

Delhi's topsy-turvy campaign was a roller-coaster ride surely, with the side getting winning streaks under their belt followed by a massive losing streak. Just when it seemed like the side would not be able to make a comeback, the side's defense managed to hold their nerve. Vijay's return also bolstered the all-round capabilities of the side. Delhi have a bit of momentum going into the playoffs but will need to be wary of the rampaging Bulls side. 

We have a mouth-watering contest on our hands and it promises to be an absolute edge-of-the-seat thriller! Sit back, relax and enjoy as I, Maanas Upadhyay, take you through all that unfolds over the course of this contest!
