After several thrilling matches already in vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9, Day 6 promises to give us more exciting action. Wednesday offers us a doubleheader at the Shree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in Bengaluru and the first game will be played between Bengaluru Bulls and Bengal Warriors, while Season 8 champions Dabang Delhi K.C. will face U.P. Yoddhas in the second match.

Here are our previews for Day 6.

Match 14: Bengaluru Bulls vs Bengal Warriors

Bengaluru Bulls will be eager to maintain their perfect start to vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9 when they face Bengal Warriors on Wednesday. The Bulls have won both their matches in the ongoing campaign and will be aiming for a third successive victory. Their attack has been led by Vikash Kandola and Bharat in Season 9 with the former scoring 17 raid points and the latter amassing 16 raid points so far. Neeraj Narwal has chipped in with eight raid points as well. Their defence, meanwhile, has seen familiar faces in Saurabh Nandal and Mahender Singh leading the way with seven and six tackle points respectively. Aman is another defender from the Bulls who has made his presence felt with four tackle points so far.

Bengal Warriors, on the other hand, will be confident about their chances of getting the better of Bengaluru Bulls after winning their last match against Telugu Titans. After a loss in their first encounter of the season, the Warriors found form in their second game to register a comprehensive 20-point win. Their captain Maninder Singh was back to his best and registered a Super 10. He’s scored a total of 18 raid points this season and has been helped in attack by all-rounder Deepak Hooda, who has a total of nine raid points to his name so far. Another all-rounder that’s been helped in attack for the Warriors is Manoj Gowda, who has scored eight raid points. Defensively, Bengal Warriors have seen Girish Maruti Ernak leading by example and his nine tackle points in two games make him one of the most dominant defenders in Season 9. That said, he’ll be hoping for more support from the rest of his teammates since the likes of Shubham Shinde, Balaji D and Vaibhav Garje haven’t accounted for many tackle points.

Bengaluru Bulls vs Bengal Warriors head-to-head

Bengaluru Bulls and Bengal Warriors have squared off in 18 matches. Both teams have won nine games each.

Match 15: U.P. Yoddhas vs Dabang Delhi K.C.

After a win in their season opener, U.P. Yoddhas suffered a loss in their last match and they will be eager to return to winning ways when they take on Dabang Delhi K.C. in Match 15 of vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9. The Yoddhas’ main raiders Pardeep Narwal and Surender Gill couldn’t quite get going in their last game and have scored 12 raid points each from their two matches this season. Pardeep and Gill playing at their best is crucial to the Yoddhas’ title prospects and they will be looking to deliver much-improved displays when they square off against the defending champions. On the defensive front, they possess several solid options like Sumit, Nitesh Kumar and Shubham Kumar. However, one of their best defenders this season has been Ashu Singh, who has scored eight tackle points, and he’ll be someone to watch out for.

Dabang Delhi K.C., though, will be a tough opponent for U.P. Yoddhas to overcome. The Season 8 champions are unbeaten after two games and will be brimming with confidence heading into their match on Wednesday. They have registered big wins in their first two games and will back themselves to get a third successive win, especially with captain Naveen Kumar looking in menacing form. He’s scored 28 raid points so far and will be a cause of concern for opposition defenders. One teammate that has supported Naveen Kumar while raiding for Dabang Delhi K.C. is Ashu Malik, who has 11 raid points from two games. The Season 8 champions’ defence, meanwhile, has looked formidable with Sandeep Dhull, Vishal and Ravi Kumar all chipping in. However, their best defender this season has been young Krishan, who has 11 tackle points to his name.

U.P. Yoddhas vs Dabang Delhi K.C. head-to-head

U.P. Yoddhas and Dabang Delhi K.C. have faced each other in seven encounters. U.P. Yoddhas have won five matches while Dabang Delhi K.C. have won twice.
