Ever since their ascendancy in the land of Pro Kabaddi League last season, one which saw them make the qualifiers for the first time, Dabang Delhi K.C. have emerged as one of the most complete teams in the showpiece league. Bestowed with a well-rounded unit, Delhi made an advent into PKL 7 retaining their main bunch of players, something which has ended up serving them extremely fruitfully in this edition.
Winning their first three matches, the side fell to a defeat against Gujarat Fortunegiants but were quick to get back to winning ways. They ended up curtailing Jaipur Pink Panther’s unbeaten spree in the previous leg, coming out with a clinical 35-24 win to consolidate their position at top of the ranks, a win they’ll be looking to emanate when they take on a hungry Puneri Paltan outfit today.
After losing three successive matches, a torrid spree of results which saw them slumped in the dearth of the points tally, Puneri Paltan have managed to win two matches on the bounce. And it’s not just the wins but the manner in which they have come about which has infuse fresh life into the outfit, a resurgence the side will look to continue with when they take on the table toppers today.

A major reason for Puneri Paltan’s rejuvenation has been their defence with Surjeet Singh and Girish Ernak finally showcasing the exuberant abilities they posses as defenders. It saw them register two emphatic wins over Patna Pirates and Gujarat Fortunegiants and the side will be turning to their defensive facet to help them triumph over Delhi as well.
