DEL vs HYD Dream11 Team: Dabang Delhi KC look to get their PKL 7 season off with a start with they take on a dwindling Titans side.
When you play your first league matches at home, the expectations accorded to your are momentous. And unfortunately for their boisterous support, Telugu Titans have completely failed to step up to the mantle, losing both their opening encounters in the showpiece league.
What has been for a bigger cause of worry for the side is the manner in which those defeats have come about for the side. The most expensive signing this season, Titans’ raider Siddharth Desai as been lacklustre at best, failing to come up with successful raids at important junctures in both the matches.
Paired with a paper thin defensive setup as the Titans shifted all their focus and resources on strengthening the raiding department and Telugu Titans have made for abysmal viewing. Be it in the raiding or defending department, there has been sign of the determination or resolve needed to win matches with the Titans having no one but themselves to blame for their misdemeanour.
And this calamitous form is exactly what last year’s top 4 side, Dabang Delhi K.C. would be looking to capitalise come today. Enjoying their best campaign in the land of Pro Kabaddi League in season 6, the side went all the way to the qualifiers before eventually losing against U.P. Yoddha in eliminator 3.
Ahead of PKL 7, the gameplan for the side representing the capital was pretty apparent. They ended up retaining their main foundation, with the side making for a seamless blend of skilled, experienced players along with some exceptional upcoming young performers. With Vishal, Ravinder Anil Kumar, Saeid Ghaffari and Sombir in defence and Meraj Sheykh (all-rounder), Vijay (all-rounder), Naveen Goyat and Chandran Ranjit taking charge of the raiding facet, the Delhi side is a complete unit, encapsulating some of the finest names in the marquee league.
Telugu Titans Vs Dabang Delhi KC Match Prediction
Although Telugu Titans have already gotten a taste of the league and this being the first test for Delhi, we see Delhi coming out of this with a win. Given the flabbergasting form of Telegu Titans coupled with Delhi having managed to retain their instrumental players, there is one winner who emerges from this.
This match will be closely contested though with both the defences needing to rise to the occasion and help imbed a successful platform for the side. Delhi should just about manage to scamper through to a win today.
Defenders for DEL vs HYD Dream11
In a defence which has bitterly disappointed, Vishal Bhardwaj has managed to wage a lone battle for Telugu Titans. He’s looked the most resolute player from his side, someone who has managed to deliver on a consistent basis and will play another pivotal role for his side today.
Elsewhere from Delhi, their captain and one of their most bankable players, Joginder Narwal has been selected by us. Given the sordid state of Telugu Titans’ defence over the course of the last two matches paired with the resilient nature of Delhi’s defence, this could be a match where Narwal emerges as one of the highest points amasser.
All-Rounders for DEL vs HYD Dream11
Newcomer Meraj Sheykh is included as the first player by us in this facet. Dabang Delhi have reposed massive faith in an all-rounder who is revered for his raiding abilities, someone who uses his fast arm touches and toe touches to dash past the baulk line with ease and indulge in successful raids on a persistent basis.
Coming in from Telugu Titans is also the one player with Farhad Milaghardan being opted by for us in this match.
Raiders for DEL vs HYD Dream11
One of the main reasons Delhi managed to imbed such a successful journey the last time around was owing to their raiding department, one which saw Chandran Ranjit liaison alongside the rest of the names to ensure that Delhi were on the end of a majority of successful raids. And Delhi will be looking forward to a fruitful partnership between him and Meraj this season to help lead to the side’s consulate ascendancy in PKL 7.
We are also opting for Neeraj Narwal for this one with his 11 price tag justifying the minutes he’s bound to get as a substitute in this one. Coming in from the Titans is Siddharth Desai to complete our Dream 11 side.

We have picked out Meraj to be the captain of our side while Narwal Ranjit is picked up as the vice-captain.
