Pune have to win this match if they need to keep their flickering playoff chances alive. They are coming off a 34-43 loss to the Jaipur Pink Panthers, however. Delhi, on the other hand, are going very strong. They have a 43-39 win against the Patna Pirates in their previous game. With the tournament getting to the business end, expect a tight encounter.
Puneri Paltan Preview
Wins are paramount for Puneri, as they chase an elusive playoff place. Thankfully for them, seasoned veteran Nitin Tomar is looking back at his best. Also looking good has been their star raider Pankaj Mohite. He has 110 raid points already and is a must pick for your team.
Manjeet is another player who has been among the points for Puneri. The raider has 99 points from 19 games and will be a good choice. With just six wins so far, Puneri haven’t really clicked as a unit. Defeating the table toppers looks a very difficult proposition as of now.
Dabang Delhi Preview
Delhi defeated Puneri 32-30 earlier in the season and will be confident of their chances here. The capital side has 14 wins out of 18 matches and have lost just twice. With the playoffs in sight, managing the momentum will be vital for the Dabang side.
Raider Naveen Kumar has been the star player for Delhi. With 222 raid points to his kitty, he is almost a one-man army. All-rounder Vijay with 47 points has been another good performer. Among others, captain Joginder Narwal has 44 tackle points. Ravinder Pahal, with 49 points has also been rewinding the clock.
