FT: Puneri Paltan win 42-24 over Dabang Delhi K.C.

Delhi's sorry show in Naveen's absence continues, while Puneri Paltan have picked up an important win to continue their recent resurgence. Manjeet Chhillar's poor form and the poor show from Delhi's defensive unit did enough to fit perfectly in Puneri Paltan's strategy, which was to go on the offensive early on and dent their opponents quickly at the start. Delhi manage to stay in 2nd place on the points table, but with the business end of Pro Kabaddi 2022 quickly approaching, they will need to find a way to halt their degression and pick up some important points.

Hello folks, and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of Match 76 of Pro Kabaddi 2022, between the Puneri Paltan and Dabang Delhi K.C! 

Dabang Delhi's campaign, one that looked unstoppable at one point, has hit quite a few roadblocks in recent times. From their last 5 games, Delhi have ended up on the losing side thrice, and in Naveen Kumar's absence from an injury, they've often been undone in crucial situations.  Sandeep Narwal's famous raiding calibre has come to the fore in a bid to camouflage Naveen's absence, but he's not done enough to win games for Delhi. Neither have Vijay Malik or young Ashu, which is where Delhi have been hit hard. 

The opposite can be said about the Paltan, who have added some life to their faltering campaign with 3 wins from their last 5 matches. Dependency on the young duo of Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat has served them well, and with the defenders also showing glimpses of their potential, they've just done enough to pull through and pick up important wins. 

However, they still find themselves languishing in second-last position on the points table, with a win today having a lot in stake for Pune than Delhi, with the latter in with a chance of jumping to the top of the pack with a victory today.
