Match 27: Dabang Delhi vs Jaipur Pink Panthers
Match 27 of Pro Kabaddi Season 7 will see Dabang Delhi take on unbeaten Jaipur Pink Panthers. We look at the factors that might decide the outcome of the match.
Clash Between Delhi’s strong raiding vs Jaipur’s strong defence
The match between Jaipur Pink Panthers and Dabang Delhi will see a clash between Dabang Delhi’s strong raiding vs Jaipur’s outstanding defence. Dabang Delhi have an average raid points of 17.75 the 3rd best in the league while Jaipur Pink Panthers have an average tackle points of 13 which is the bests in the league. The match also sets up a tantalizing clash of Naveen who is the 2nd highest raid point scorer this season versus left corner Sandeep Dhull who is the top defender this season, Chandran Ranjith vs Amit Hooda which will be a big deciding factor of the match.
Delhi’s defence apart from Joginder needs to step up
Dabang Delhi have won 3 out of their 4 matches but a big area of concern is the performance of their defence. Delhi’s average tackle points of 8.50 is the 2ndworst by a team in Pro Kabaddi Season 7. Joginder Narwal has done well scoring 13 tackle points, Iranian Seeed Ghaffari has also impressed since his introduction in the starting 7 scoring 7 tackle points but the form of experienced campaigners Vishal Mane and especially Ravinder Pahal is concerning. With Delhi next facing the likes Deepak Hooda, Deepak Narwal and Ajinkya Pawar their defence needs to support the raiders.
