Patna Pirates vs Dabang Delhi | Techy Kings


07:30: Hello and welcome to Khel Now Live Update of PKL Season 9 Day 13.

U Mumba vs Haryana Steelers

U Mumba will play Haryana Steelers and are coming off a loss to Poneri Paltans in PKL 9 with just two points separating the two sides. Goman Singh once again stood tall scoring seven raids and getting good support from Jai Bhagwan. Substitutes arrived at a time when key players were struggling to show good bench strength.

Haryana Steelers like U Mumba are suffering defeat against Dabang Delhi KC (36-38). The Northern side fought very hard against the reigning champions and gave their all but the opposition was stronger. Manjeet Dahiya was at his usual best to score a super 10.

Face it

Haryana Steelers and U Mumba have faced each other in 11 matches in Pro Kabaddi League, out of which Haryana Steelers have won 4 matches while U Mumba have won 6 occasions and one match ended in a tie.

The key to success

In the last match, U Mumba’s defense was very poor against Poneri Platoon. Apart from Rinko at right corner, none of the starting 7 defenders scored a single tackle point to hurt U Mumba. Surinder Singh looks the captain of color and needs to return to form.

Mito has been inconsistent in PKL Season 9. Both Manjeet Dahiya and Meetu have not performed well in a single match but have performed well on various occasions. Both need to complement each other well and score points regularly. Joginder Narwal and Ameer Bastami will now pair with Joginder Narwal who has not performed well and the combination needs to get off to a good start.

Puneri Paltan vs Bengal Warriors

Poneri Paltan has returned to form with wins in the last two matches after back-to-back defeats in the opening matches. The Pune team will face Bengal Warriors in the 31st match of PKL 9. The presence of Iranian duo Fazil Atrachali and Mohammad Nabi Bakhsh has helped the defense to return to form and the youngsters have also been able to learn from them. Poneri was ranked 12th a few days ago but is currently back in the top 6.

Bengal Warriors lost their previous match against Jaipur Pink Panthers by a margin of 13 points. Before their previous encounter, Bengal Warriors were on a three-match winning streak and the last match was an off-color encounter. Maninder Singh could score only two raid points.

Face it

Bengal Warriors and Puneri Paltan have faced each other in 16 matches in Pro Kabaddi League out of which Bengal Warriors have won 8 while Puneri Paltan have won 7 occasions which ended in a tie.

The key to success

The trio of Maninder Singh, Shrikant Jadhav and Deepak Hooda did not fire simultaneously in a single encounter. Maninder could only score two points in the previous match which hurt the Bengal team badly and Jadhav top scored with six raid points against Jaipur Pink Panthers.

Puneri Platoon’s defense looks strong but apart from Aslam Inamdar, Mohit Goit, the raiders have not scored consistently. In the last match, Aslam could only score five raid points but won by one point against Telugu Titans. Pankaj Mohate needs more raids to get good playing time and experience.

Patna Pirates vs Dabang Delhi

Defending champions Dabang Delhi are causing a stir in PKL Season 9 as well. They top the points table with five wins from five games while last season’s final rivals Patna Pirates are still looking for their first win.

Patna came close to winning their last game against Tamil Thalaivas but lost the game in the last 30 seconds and thus remained winless in the competition. Their defense has struggled this season and the team will hope that they return to form against Delhi otherwise Patna will have to wait longer for their first win.

Face it

Dabang Delhi KC and Patna Pirates have faced each other in 15 Pro Kabaddi matches. Dabang Delhi KC have won seven of these fifteen games, while Patna Pirates have won seven times. 1 match ended in a tie.

The key to success

Patna’s defense will have to play well to win. Sachin and Rohit Gulya are doing their bit in raiding so if Patna’s defense has a good day, they can challenge Delhi.

Delhi will just have to play the way they have been playing to win. Both their defense and their raiding unit have played well as a unit so far.
