Pro Kabaddi 2017: In match number 119 of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 5, Dabang Delhi locked horns against the Bengaluru Bulls as a part of the Inter-Zone Wildcard fixture at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. The last time these two teams came head to head during the Kolkata leg, it was the Delhi side that emerged victoriously. They are coming into this match on the back of a one-point win against the Jaipur Pink Panthers last night while the Bengaluru Bulls also won their last match 35-45 against the Tamil Thalaivas. The Iranian duo of Meraj Sheykh and Abolfazl Maghsoudlou were consistent with their raids last night and also got good support from young gun R Sriram. Nilesh Shinde’s return in defence was a major boost for the side in Satpal’s absence. Bengaluru Bulls, on the other hand, will bank majorly on their skipper, Rohit Kumar to go rampant with his raiding like he did in the last match and finished with 17 points to power his team to a big win. The defence will be manned by Ravinder Pahal alongside the two youngsters, Mahender Singh and Kuldeep Singh.
