Player to watch

Siddharth Desai after a poor start in the first two matches looked good in the last encounter against the Patna Pirates scoring seven raid points. With good height, Siddharth can take more bonus points to increase his confidence and momentum.

Manjeeth has been supporting Naveen Kumar as a secondary raider in the absence of Vijay Malik. In their previous encounter against UP Yoddhas Manjeeth scored 12 raid points equivalent to Naven who scored 13 points. 

Key to Success

Dabang Delhi overall has a good team getting equal contributions from both the raiders and the defenders. The Northern team need to continue the same form and consistency.

The raiders after the injury to Rajnish have stepped up with Siddharth Desai scoring 7 points and Monu Goyat scoring 10 raid points respectively. Surjeet Singh has taken over the captaincy from Ravinder Pahal and has performed well scoring 4 tackle points. Overall it will be experienced Monu and Siddharth Desai to come good.
