There couldn’t have been a better way to open up the newest leg of Pro Kabaddi League 7 then today’s intriguing clash between Bengal Warriors and Dabang Delhi K.C.. It’s a clash in the annuls of the league standings, an encounter which could see the winner move all the way to first place and reaffirm their credentials as firm favourites for the glistening trophy.
With just the one defeat in 6 encounters, Dabang Delhi K.C. have been one of the most well-rounded, astute and articulate sides in the frontier league this edition. Ever since making it to the qualifiers for the first time in PKL 6, Delhi have gone onto build on the platform of their rampant success, cleaning apart sides with will.
Coming into today’s encounter with a long hiatus, Dabang Delhi K.C. will be looking to pick up from right where they had left. Ravinder Pahal, Vishal Mane and Saeid Ghaffari have built out an extremely stringent defence for the side, one which is a seamless blend of tackles and experience, stifling attacks at will to help the side go on a sensational spree in the league.
And up against the Warriors today, delhi will be quietly confident of winning this one and moving back up to first place, one they were displaced by an equally impressive Jaipur side. While the Warriors are third in the league standings, their wins have been far from convincing, just about surviving a slew of super tackles from Gujarat in their previous match to win.
