The wounded Dabang Delhi side is up against the Haryana Steelers in match number 55 of PKL 2021 after suffering back to back losses in their last two games. So let's have a look at the detailed preview of the anticipating clash between two neighbouring hubs of Kabaddi.

Strategic Takeaways

Coach Krishan Kumar Hooda would want to forget their previous fixture quickly to focus on a future campaign. The capital-based franchise was thrashed by Bengaluru Bulls in the absence of raiding sensation Naveen Kumar Goyat. We are unsure about Naveen's participation today as his injury seems a serious one. On the other hand, Haryana coach Rakesh Kumar would want his Dhakad Boys to utilise this golden opportunity.

Head to Head

Head-to-head record and recent form, both are in favour of Haryana. Although Rakesh won't make a mistake by going easy on Delhi's experienced roster. In their previous face-off, Steelers from the land of Kabaddi registered a 22-point thumping win over Dabangs. Where Haryana's current captain Vikash Kandola scored a marvellous Super 10 in a one-sided victory.

Key Battle

Vikash Kandola vs Manjeet Chhillar

Vikash Kandola was the standout performer for Steelers in their comeback against UP in the dying moments of the game. His tally of 17 raid points was almost half of the team total. Vikash's valuable two-pointer strike in Haryana's last raid of the game levelled the scoreline. The Haryana captain will be summoned by the most successful defender in the history of PKL, Manjeet Chhillar. With 17 tackle points from nine games, Manjeet has been the best Delhi defender this season so far.

356 - Tackle points

2 - Super 10s

23 - High 5s
