DEL vs PAT Dream11 : Dabang Delhi K.C. look to become the first side to win all their home leg encounters in PKL 7 when locks heads against last placed Patna Pirates
After becoming the first side to win three successive home leg clashes in Pro Kabaddi League 7, an unstoppable Dabang Delhi K.C. make an advent in today’s clash scouring for a new record. Wrapping up a highly successfully Delhi leg for themselves, the table toppers will be looking to make it four wins from four at home when they square off against Patna Pirates today.
The culminating encounter of what has been a thoroughly action filled and enjoyable leg of the showpiece league with the capital immersing in a riveting brand of kabaddi backed by vociferous support for Dabang Delhi sees the hosts take on their easiest opponents till date. In last placed Patna Pirates, the home side are up against an outfit who have failed miserably in the defensive side of their game with the raiding unit standing on the sole support of Pardeep Narwal.
With just 3 wins from 10 matches, the difference between the qualities of the two outfits is palpable. Both not just occupy positions on the opposite ends of the points tally but are separated by a massive 26 points, a figure which epitomises the huge gap in the two sides this season.
Delhi are making an advent into today’s clash having defeated Bengaluru Bulls, U.P. Yoddha and U Mumba in their home leg with their raiding unit decimating their opponents with relative ease. Elsewhere Patna saw their last win come on 9 August, a win against U.P. Yoddha, following which the side are winless in the league.
What also adds to the intrigue of today’s clash is the narrative of Delhi’s Naveen Kumar looking to move past Pardeep Narwal’s 8 successive super 10s in the land of the Pro Kabaddi League. With both of these players facing off against each other today, this script only goes onto add the extra needed bit to ensure this clash is a riveting affair.
Probable Playing 7

Pardeep Narwal, Jang Kun Lee, Monu, Jaideep, Neeraj Kumar, Hadi Oshtorak, Vikash Jaglan
DEL vs PAT Match Prediction
With Delhi’s raiding facet obliterating the strongest and most well disciplined of defensive units in the league, this encounter should be an extremely easy one for them. They are up against a Patna Pirates outfit which has failed to unlock its true potential with its faltering backline emerging as the main source of the team’s dejection.
Delhi not only win this one but end up trashing their opponents to further consolidate their status as firm favourites for the trophy.

DEL vs PAT Dream11 Defenders
While Delhi have one of the most useful raiding units in the league, the side know they wouldn’t have tasted such resounding success if it wasn’t for the impeccable defensive displays of the formidable duo of Ravinder Pahal and Joginder Narwal. The two defenders have complimented each other perfectly, intertwined their skill set to perfection to encapsulate everything needed of a successful backline.
With 30 points we have Ravinder come into our side while Joginder Narwal befittingly accompanies him with the 25 tackles in 10 matches. From Patna Pirates we have opted for the services of Jaideep, their most successful defender till now in the showpiece league.
DEL vs PAT Dream11 All-Rounders
With their not really being a viable option to choose from with the all-rounders’ facet lined up with names who either don’t find a main role in their side’s gameplan or have failed to impress, we have decided to rope in Delhi’s Balram. He got his first outing in the previous clash, coming on as a substitute and we envision him getting time out in the middle today as well with Delhi testing him out yet again.
DEL vs PAT Dream11 Raiders
Delhi’s most successful raider, Naveen Kumar comes in straightaway for us over here. Not only does he have 8 successive super 10s to see him get 115 raid points but he’s up against a defence which has struggled to scramble together successful showings.
With 51 raid points we have Chandran Ranjit come in as well for us from the home side while Patna Pirates have their best player come in over here. With 86 successful raids, Pardeep Narwal has yet again shone his exemplary skill set as a raider, amassing points at will despite getting zero assistance from his counterparts.
DEL vs PAT Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
We have opted for Ravinder as our captain for today while Naveen is the vice-captain.
