Patna from Zone B will play against Delhi K.C. Zone A in the Inter-zone challenge week at the Dome NSCI in Mumbai tonight at 8PM.
The Patna unit had a fantastic 20 point win against a solid Bengal side and would be high on trust in their match against Delhi. The raiders of Patna were in prime shape as two of them, Pardeep and Deepak, got a Super-10 in a match where the raiding unit scored 28 raid points for the Patna team. The defense, driven by the left corner player Jaideep, was likewise capable as they choked the Bengal’s attack and in the process scored 15 tackle points.
Delhi likewise had a win against the Jaipur team, thanks to a fantastic performance by their raiding unit. While Naveen Kumar got another Super-10, it was Meraj Sheykh’s performance that was the differentiator in the win against the Jaipur squad. With their ongoing performances, Delhi resembles a balanced favored team with a nimble attack and a solid defensive unit driven by their corners, Joginder Narwal, and Ravinder Pahal. The absence of the form of the cover defenders – Vishal Mane and Rajesh Narwal, is the main significant reason of worry for them, which could be enhanced with better settings with the corners.
Tentative 7 players aligned for each team
Patna Team: (Captain) Pardeep Narwal, Deepak Narwal, Ravinder Kumar, Vikas Kale, Kuldeep Singh, Vijay, Jaideep
Delhi Team: (Captain) Joginder Narwal, Meraj Sheykh, Vishal Mane, Ravinder Pahal, Naveen Kumar, Chandran Ranjit, Rajesh Narwal
Chandran Ranjit, Naveen Kumar, and Pardeep Narwal
Pardeep Narwal has maintained his consistency and would be liked to feature a similar life at the night’s go ahead match. Chandran Ranjit from Delhi has kept up his shape paying little respect to their team’s conflicting performances in the past matches. Naveen Kumar has similarly been a regarded extension to the Delhi’s raiding unit as he scored well in troublesome conditions.
Jaideep and Joginder Narwal
Joginder Narwal has always been a risk from the left corner with his unprecedented lower leg and would be relied on to demonstrate the relative performance in tonight’s match too. Jaideep, the left corner defender for Patna should assume control over his adversaries protectively tonight realizing that he was the best defender in the last season freely.
Vijay has done fairly well both in the striking and defending fronts and would be expected to do well in tonight’s match too on behalf of Patna.
Match Prediction – Patna vs Delhi
Although both the teams are highly spirited as of now, in our per se, Delhi looks more promising of being the evening match’s winner.
