One win away from sealing a place in the playoffs, hosts UP Yoddha (sixth, 58 points) will be confident of their chances against Dabang Delhi (first, 82 points). This match #122 of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) season 7 will be played on Saturday in Greater Noida.
UP are the last team to play at home and are coming off a win over Haryana Steelers. Another win will be enough for them to seal the last available berth. Dabang are coming off a loss, having seen their six-game unbeaten run snapped by Bengal. With the all-important playoffs approaching, Delhi will look to get back to winning ways.
UP Yoddha Preview
As the hosts go in search of a win, all eyes will be on the UP’s raiders. Shrikant Jadhav with a total of 114 raid points in 18 games will be a very good fantasy pick. Rishank Devadiga might have just 46 points, but he is very valuable to UP’s charge.
Defence is led by Sumit, who has 61 tackle points this season. Closely following him is the Yoddha captain Nitesh Kumar with 50 tackle points. Overall, it has been a balanced effort from the Yoddha. They have picked up seven wins in their last ten matches and will be a confident unit.
Dabang Delhi Preview
Delhi have been the team to beat for most of the season. The table-toppers have already consolidated their playoffs’ place, but will look to bounce back from the loss. Star raider Naveen Kumar will continue to lead the show, as Dabang search for a win.
Chandran Ranjit has 110 raid points in 19 games which is not bad at all. However, with Naveen stealing the show, Ranjit has played a back-up role. Joginder Narwal and Ravinder Pahal have tallied 103 tackle points between themselves and will once again be crucial.
