Dabang Delhi has been a team that has created a platform for the players to show their skills but they have not been able to maintain their performance consistently in order to win the game. Here, we will discuss about Team Delhi players in detail, whom Dabang Delhi has purchased during the Pro Kabaddi Auction 2018.
Since the inaugural season, Delhi’s best performance has been in sixth place, while in the second and third editions, they finished their journey at seventh place.
However, before the auction, they have tried to maintain their talented skipper and make a dangerous team with him and have decided to join this season with mixed talent. Dabang Delhi is hoping to see a change in fortune soon.
Dabang Delhi has invested a lot in the Pro Kabaddi 2018 auction to buy a composite squad. They bought seven riders in total. This list includes Shabir Bapu, who had earlier played for teams such as U Mumba and Jaipur Pink Panthers.
He is one of the most successful riders in the league with 200 points in 54 matches. Although he failed to show his best game for Mumbai in Season 5, this time Delhi fans are very much expecting him.
Pawan Kadian, played for Jaipur in last season, will play for Delhi in six sessions. Pawan Kumar (₹ 20 lakhs) was taken for his calibre during the auction. His records show that he can help a lot with the lineup. Khomsan Thongkham ₹ 8 lacs were their only foreign purchase.
Let’s now extensively analyze the total team players bought by Dabang Delhi in 2018 auction and see what opportunities are going on in Season 6 for Delhi.
However, for this season, they added big names Vishal Mane (₹ 45 lakhs) who was a part of Patna Pirates last time and Joginder Narwal (₹ 33 lakhs) two big names for the strengthening of the squad for this season, which has been performing well in the last few seasons.
A high bid was made for Chandran Ranjit (₹ 61.25), who had performed better for U Mumba in the previous season after that Shabeer Bapu (₹ 15.5) has been an exceptionally aggressive force for the acquiring teams.
Delhi Dabang has some experienced defenders like Pahal and Mane, but their form was not consistent in the entire session last year.
Overall, the attacking side is not so good and can cause problems for the team. Their team lacks a deadly rider, so in this way, riders and all-rounder also need to adjust to each other well. If this coordination is successful, then there can be good prospects for Delhi.
The Delhi franchise has bought five all-rounders. Meraj Sheykh was maintained by them. He is one of the most skilled all-rounders in the league.
Rajesh Narwal has also been included in the lineup of Delhi this time. He is one of the best players of the pro kabaddi league. His game was not enough in the last season because he did not get enough possibilities in the UP Yuddhas.
The cost of buying the players in Pro Kabaddi auction will be beneficial for Delhi, it can be estimated only after the start of the season 6.
