Hello folks, and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Dabang Delhi vs Tamil Thalaivas game!

Delhi are yet to lose a single match in this season of Pro Kabaddi 2021, with three wins and one tie that sees them occupy top spot on the points table. The Thalaivas, on the other hand, have failed to grab opportunities that have come their way, and as a result, they have two ties to their name apart from one loss and a win out of 4 matches. 

Today's encounter will undoubtedly be the Thalaivas' biggest test, with the threat of Naveen Kumar looming large. However, the relatively young Thalaivas' defensive unit has produced a few moments of brilliance, and that could well be the difference between a win and a loss for the Surjeet Singh-led side.
