Pro Kabaddi 2019 Final HIGHLIGHTS, Dabang Delhi vs Bengal Warriors: Catch all the live updates from the Pro Kabaddi 2019 Final match between Dabang Delhi and Bengal Warriors through News18 Sports’ live blog. Bengal Warriors beat Dabang Delhi 39-34 in the final at the EKA Arena by TransStadia in Ahmedabad on Saturday to lift their maiden title. The first half was extremely pacy with Delhi getting off to a flying start but were then struck hard by an inspired Mohammad Nabibakhsh, who single-handedly brought Bengal back into this. Bengal Warriors inflicted two all-outs on Dabang Delhi as their defence wilted under pressure. Naveen Kumar got his 21st consecutive Super 10 but his defence won only three tackle points and Bengal made the best of the chance.

Dabang Delhi and Bengal Warriors were both in the Pro Kabaddi final for the first time in their history and were looking to get their hands on the elusive trophy for the very first time. While Dabang Delhi finished as the best team in the league stage and even got a better win in the semi-finals, Bengal Warriors and Mohammad Nabibakhsh rose to the occasion in the final and beat Dabang Delhi for their maiden title.

Both Dabang Delhi and Bengal Warriors were the two best teams throughout the league phase and rightfully set up the final. However, Dabang Delhi have not been able to beat Bengal Warriors in the season so far with one of their matches ending in a 30-30 tie while the second in Panchkula was won by Bengal Warriors 42-33 against a second-string Delhi side. Delhi will now be looking to get their first win against Bengal and get the trophy along with it.

Dabang Delhi have had a brilliant season where they have won 16 matches, lose just four and drawn three. Their raider Naveen Kumar has been the breakout star of the season and 56 per cent of the raids points scored by Delhi have been his. While they are a cohesive unit and work well in tandem, Naveen has played a huge part in their remarkable journey in season 7.

Bengal Warriors, on the other hand, have won 15 matches this season, losing five and drawing three. Their captain Maninder Singh has been their star raider even as he has been well supported by K Prapanjan. Bengal are known for their exceptional raiding abilities even as they have a solid defence, which knows when to step up.
