Dabang Delhi face Jaipur Pink Panthers in first of the Pro Kabaddi League Sunday doubleheader.
Dabang Delhi’s season has been a disappointment so far. After 8 matches, they have come out on top on only three occasions. However, they staged a dramatic comeback in the last outing and would look to take the momentum further. They would be banking on young raider Naveen Kumar who has been prolific for the side. Ravinder Pahal and Joginder Narwal have also been the stand out players for the franchise.
Likewise, Jaipur Pink Panthers have been dismal since the start. They have only managed a single win so far. It is the lacklustre form of captain and raider Anup Kumar (34 points from 8 matches) that is hurting Pink Panthers. However, the defence has done their bit. For them to do well here, the attack should be better.
When – 11 November, 8 PM IST
