Fazel Atrachali’s return to U Mumba has already borne fruit for the side. The Iranian is the leading defender this season with 62 tackle points. Atrachali will be up against an in-form Dabang Delhi K.C. raiding unit consisting of rookie Naveen Kumar, Chandran Ranjit and Meraj Sheykh. The Left Corner, however, returned with four tackle points against Dabang Delhi K.C. in their previous encounter and will be raring to go again and ensure victory for his side, enabling them to reclaim top spot in Zone A.
Dec 1, 2018 7:56 pm (IST)
Veteran Ravinder Pahal has been Dabang Delhi K.C.’s leading defender this season with 42 tackle points. The Right-Corner was limited to just one point in their previous encounter against U Mumba but came back strongly following that performance with a High 5 against Haryana Steelers. He also scored a High 5 in the team’s first home game against Jaipur Pink Panthers. The experience of Pahal will be up against the energy of Siddharth Desai and he will have his task cut out for him if Dabang Delhi K.C. are to notch up a win.

Kumar’s average of 7.93 raid points per match is ninth in the season while Desai averages more than a Super 10 every game and sits second in that category. Speaking of Super 10s, Desai has nine while Kumar has managed to cross the landmark five times. Dabang Delhi K.C. have the advantage of a second raider in good form in the form of Chandran Ranjit. U Mumba, though, heavily rely on Desai as their next highest raid point scorer sits almost 100 raid points off Desai’s mark. The duel between the two rookies will be keenly watched as they hold the key for their teams.

Naveen Kumar vs Siddharth Desai
Both rookies have been magnificent for their respective sides and are their sides’ top scorers so far this season. While Naveen Kumar has managed 111 raid points in 14 matches to stand eighth in the list of Best Raiders, Siddharth Desai has racked up 153 raid points from 14 matches, the fourth best tally in the league.
