Dabang Delhi thrashed Jaipur Pink Panthers 40-29 in their first meeting of the Vivo ProKabaddi Season 6. With this win, the Eagles have continued their recent record over Jaipur as they've now won 3 out of the last 4 meetings.
Jaipur got off to a flying start in the first half and were leading 9-3 in the 8th minute. It was all down to Joginder Narwal and Vishal Mane to pull off something special. The Captain didn't disappoint and rose to the occasion to pull off a Super Tackle over Deepak Hooda and saved Dabang Delhi from getting ALL OUT.
The show wasn't over from our Captain yet. In the 12th minute, with only Ravinder Pahal left as another defender, Joginder Narwal forced another Super Tackle over the star raider from Jaipur to reduce the gap from 10-5 to 10-7. It was perhaps the match-defining moment and an inspiring one for rest of the Eagles.
Our Dabangs didn't look back and our previous match hero Meraj Sheykh brought the score to 10-all with a Super Raid. By the end of the first half, our raiders changed the gears and helped the Eagles take a comfortable lead of four points, as the scoreboard read 20-16.
Our boys didn't look back in the second half and at the back of some brilliant raiding from the deadly trio of Meraj Sheykh, Chandran Ranjit and Naveen Kumar, the Eagles managed to win the game with 11 points difference - their biggest of the season and best ever over Jaipur Pink Panthers.
Joginder Narwal-led Dabang Delhi will next face the reigning Champions Patna Pirates on November 15th in Mumbai. The team will look to triple their successful run against a much strong team on paper led by Pardeep Narwal. But as they say, Kabaddi is played on the mat and not on paper, and our Dabangs will take any challenge with more Dabanggiri.
