Dabang Delhi KC finished second in the Pro Kabaddi standings with 75 points from 22 encounters. They have 12 wins and six losses so far in the ongoing edition of the Pro Kabaddi League, with their remaining four games ending in draws.
Having finished second in the PKL points table, the Delhi-based club secured a direct entry into the semi-finals.
The Bulls, on the other hand, finished fifth in the PKL points table. They met the Gujarat Giants in Eliminator 2 and comfortably won the match 49-29. Pawan Sehrawat top-scored for his side with 13 for the Bulls. A few other players also picked up a few points to guide the Bangalore-based club to an easy victory.
Dabang Delhi KC are strong favorites to win this encounter. However, one cannot rule out the Bengaluru Bulls as they have the experience of winning the title in Season 6.
Pawan is flying high this season as he led the charts after the injury to Naveen and has not looked back since.
He was once again in top form against Giants as he scored yet another super 10 to take his tally to 286 points for this season with 17 super 10 highest in the league.
Naveen Kumar will be the difference-maker in this tie his presence alone sent ripples in the defense. Naveen had played 7 fewer matches from all the top raiders and still made it into the top 5 raider list with 180 points.
Vijay is the perfect all-rounder capable of leading his side in dire need. Even if Naveen goes out of the mat, he will be there to bring it back. He has scored 140 raid points despite being the support raider.
The left corner from Bulls, Aman and cover in Mahender will look to provide another solid performance.
Mahender was especially solid in the last game where he saved his team from 2 all-out and scored his 2nd high five of the season, while Aman has crossed the 50 tackle points mark now.
Young Krishan and Joginder will be on their toes against the High flyer. Krishan ended the league stage well with a 67% strike rate in his last two games while Joginder has scored 30 tackle points with Krishan just behind with 24 points.
The match will be live telecast on Star Sports and Disney+ Hotstar
