Dabang Delhi K.C. 40-35 Bengaluru Bulls

A comprehensive showing from Delhi in the second half and they set up a date with the Patna Pirates in the Final of the Pro Kabaddi League on Friday. After the game seemed to be tilted just a tad in Bengaluru's favour, Delhi completely turned the tables in the second half of the contest. They kept Pawan Sehrawat quiet, who did the bulk of the scoring for the Bulls. Pressure of a big match and the relatively inexperienced Bulls have failed to hold their nerves in crunch situations. Naveen Kumar played with a niggle but took his side to victory as they will get another shot at redemption and the trophy on Friday.

Completely contrary to the first semi-final, this has been an absolute nail-biter so far, with it being an evenly-fought contest. Bulls ahead by a whisker as they have a 1-point lead going into the second half. It has been Pawan once again who has done the bulk of the scoring for them, notching up 11 points already. The corners are in good form while the Bulls will be hoping for more from the support raiders. Delhi too have replied on their raiding department as Naveen and Vijay have distributed duties amongst them. A cracking second half is on the cards. Which side will join the Pirates in the final?

Right then, the Dabang Delhi K.C. have had quite a terrific run in this tournament so far. Despite missing the services of Naveen Kumar for a brief period, the Delhi outfit has brought all its experience to the fore to negate the effect of their star raider's loss and rake in the wins. Delhi have one of the most experienced defense departments who can single-handedly take the game away from their opponent on their day. Delhi will be hoping for another top-performance from the Naveen Express as they look to plough their way into the finals. 

The Bengaluru Bulls, on the other hand, did not have the best of seasons in absence of their star raider, Pawan Sehrawat. The Hi-Flyer has single-handedly taken his team to wins initially before the emergence of Bharat as an all-rounder along with the defense coming to the party in the subsequent games, which has significantly reduced the time that Pawan spends on the bench. The Bulls qualified for the playoffs when Pune beat the Pink Panthers and thereafter, secured a massive win against the Gujarat Giants in the Second Eliminator. The Bulls will hope to come out all guns blazing tonight and charge their way into the final.
