Dabang Delhi Coach hails Narwal as the ‘Take Down Tiger’

The Chief coach of the Dabang Delhi KC, Krishan Kumar Hooda talked about his expectations from the captain and asserted, “Joginder Nawal is an asset for us in the upcoming season, and I am pretty confident of his leadership skills. He is a versatile player who knows how to defend and take down the opposition. He is our Take Down Tiger.”

He takes the baton from Iranian all-rounder Meraj Sheykh as the Delhi captain who led the team during the season 4 and season 5 of the franchise-based Kabaddi League. Although he was Delhi’s best foreign performer with One hundred and four points to his name, he failed to guide the team to a top-four finish.

Joginder Narwal has also represented Bengaluru Bulls, U Mumba and Puneri Paltan in the league in previous editions and he would want to capitalize on his experience and lead his team to glory.

Moreover, Narwal might prove to be a strong defender for the side, an area which has a loophole for the Dabangs in the previous editions.
