The Dabang Delhi and Tamil Thalaivas are in the two opposite ends of the spectrum in PKL 2021 saw far. While the Dabangs have not lost a single contest this season, the Thalaivas registered their first win yesterday night. Here, we take a look at how the two teams shape up ahead of this crucial encounter.

Strategic Takeaways

Dabang Delhi has not had to face many difficulties in the four matches they have played in the season. They have been led admirably well in the raiding department by Naveen Goyat and Vijay Malik, while the struggling defensive duo of Manjeet Chillar and Jeeva Kumar showed glimpses of form in their last encounter against the Bengal Warriors.

The Thalaivas, on the other hand, started on a shaky note by drawing two and losing one despite taking massive leads in all those matches. They however made amends against the Puneri Paltan on the second last match of 2021, thanks to Ajinkya Pawar and will be eyeing to continue this momentum.

Head to Head

Having made their PKL debut in the year 2017 – a season that saw the emergence of Dabang Delhi as a force to reckon with, the Thalaivas are yet to register a single win over the capital-based franchise.

Key Battle

Naveen v/s Surjeet

Naveen Goyat has, as usual, been absolutely unstoppable this season. The 21-year-old has already pocketed 66 raid points in just 4 matches. With the Thalaivas defence looking a bit shaky in their previous game, the onus will face on their captain Surjeet to ensure that the 'Naveen Express' spends most of his time off the mat.
