Key battles

Maninder singh vs Delhi’s experienced defensive trio

Maninder Singh has a dominant record against Delhi’s Right Cover Vishal Mane and this season he has been perfect against him.

Maninder vs Vishal Mane

PKL Overall: 21-5
PKL 2019: 5-0

But Delhi have a big weapon to use against Maninder if he is fit to play in the form of Ravinder Pahal. The Delhi Right Corner has a 13-11 edge over Maninder though Maninder leads their season battle 4-2.


The Bonus Battle

Dabang Delhi are experts in collecting the bonus point. Both Naveen and Ranjit are very efficient in picking the Bonus. Delhi score 5.8 Bonus Points per game on average, the 2nd highest mark among all teams while Bengal concede 5.4 Bonus Points per game which is the 2nd highest among all teams.

With Bengal not the best at guarding the Bonus line, this could be an area that Delhi will look to exploit.
