A host stuttering to find their feet and a visitor playing their first game of the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) season 7. The match #8 between Telugu Titans and Dabang Delhi KC couldn’t have been more important.
The Titans have already picked up two losses under its belt. Losses to U Mumba and Tamil Thalaivas highlighted the fact that they have a lot of ground to cover. For Delhi, this is a chance to build on their first playoffs performance last season and do better.
Telugu Titans Preview
Improvements are needed in both the raiding and defensive units of the Titans. Top signing Siddharth ‘Bahubali’ Desai failed to live up to his standards so far. The backup raiding unit has also failed, putting pressure on the side.
The Titans have a good defensive unit on paper. Abozar Mighani and Vishal Bharadwaj will hope to pick up rhythm as the Titans get desperate to pick their first win of PKL Season 7. It will be a big challenge, though, as Dabang will provide a stern test.
Dabang Delhi KC Preview
Delhi managed to make it to the playoffs last season, the first in their PKL history. With a strong raiding unit led by the mercurial Iranian Meraj Sheykh, Dabang will hope to build up on that success. The dynamic raiding unit of Delhi make them a spectacle to watch on the mat.
Captain Joginder Narwal and Ravinder Pahal provide strength to Delhi’s defence. Vishal Mane’s addition gives them muscle and experience. Chandran Ranjit and Naveen Kumar provide valuable support. Overall, Delhi look a better balanced side than the Titans.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Siddharth Desai has failed to live up to his heavy price tag so far. The raider, however, has the talent to bounce back. ‘Bahubali’ Desai could fetch you a good fantasy point tally.
Meraj Sheykh is an excellent all-rounder for Delhi. His presence will boost their raiding options and will give them strong defensive cover.
Joginder Narwal is a very experienced left-corner specialist. Delhi’s captain will look to keep the Titans’ attack quiet and pick up a win.
