After two months of pulsating action, Pro Kabaddi is nearing towards the end of another nerve-wracking season. Dabang Delhi KC has surprised everyone with their clinical performances leading the table on the back of their young raider Naveen Kumar and have been facing a stiff challenge from teams such as Haryana Steelers and Bengal Warriors.
WATCH OUT FOR: Naveen Kumar
He turned up this season with the sole agenda of breaking every record. Having already outclassed Pardeep Narwal’s record of most consecutive Super 10’s, Naveen Kumar has been leading the charts for total points in the ongoing season. Naveen will hope to end the season with a few insurmountable records to his name and the upcoming battle with UP Yoddhas will be nothing short of enticing for the 19-year-old to score big points before the playoffs begin.
For now, let’s settle the debate with this bit of stat – Naveen Kumar has completed 213 raids this season in 20 encounters racking up a record 256 raid points. He’s unstoppable at the moment and keeping him quite will be task worth boasting about.
Jaipur Pink Panthers are in between a rock and a hard place
Jaipur has been one of the most unpredictable side so far and have landed up in an unfavourable position to qualify for the playoffs. The Pink Panthers have just one priority - win all their remaining games to trouble the four teams above them. If they win their two matches against Bengaluru Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas, they must hope U Mumba, UP Yoddha and Bengaluru Bulls don’t win a single match from hereon. A victory each for these three teams would completely eliminate all chances that Jaipur can envision if they win all their games.
WATCH OUT FOR: Sandeep Kumar Dhull
The star defender for Jaipur has been one consistent factor that has been working wonders in crux situations. With the scenario for Jaipur looking extremely difficult to qualify for the playoffs, Sandeep Kumar can surely rise up to the occasion and pull off match winning feats for his team. He is leading the pack with 67 tackle points this season and is tipped to end his campaign as one of the most successful defenders.
