After an exciting week of vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9 action, Friday brings us another exciting triple header at the Shree Shivchhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi in Pune. The first match of the evening will witness Patna Pirates facing U Mumba, while Dabang Delhi K.C. take on Jaipur Pink Panthers in the second and U.P. Yoddhas go up against Puneri Paltan in the third game.

Here are our previews for Day 24.

Match 56: Patna Pirates vs U Mumba

After a slow start to the season, Patna Pirates have come into their own of late and are currently on a four-match unbeaten streak. They’ve won three, lost four and tied two games so far, giving them 23 points after nine matches. They will be confident about getting another win against U Mumba and will hope that their main raiders Sachin and Rohit Gulia can add to their 79 and 69 raid points respectively this season. On the defensive front, Sunil has been the Pirates’ best defender with 22 tackle points, while Mohammadreza Chiyaneh and Neeraj Kumar have managed 17 and 14 tackle points respectively.

U Mumba are also in good form with six wins and three losses putting them third in the Season 9 standings. Guman Singh has been the Season 2 champions’ lead raider and has scored 61 raid points for them at this stage. He has been supported in attack by the likes of Ashish and Jai Bhagwan, who have managed 42 and 32 raid points respectively so far. Defensively, skipper Surinder Singh has led by example for U Mumba with 29 tackle points, while Rinku (22 tackle points) and Mohit (20 tackle points) have been their next best defenders.

Patna Pirates vs U Mumba head-to-head

Patna Pirates have clashed with U Mumba 16 times. The three-times champions have won six of these games, while the Season 2 champions have won nine times. One match between the teams ended in a tie.

Match 57: Dabang Delhi K.C. vs Jaipur Pink Panthers



After a great start to the season that saw them win their first five games, Dabang Delhi K.C. have gone on to endure a poor run of results that’s seen them suffer five successive losses. The defending champions will be desperate to snap their losing run and will need their defence to back up the attack having failed to do so in the last couple of games. Naveen Kumar has been the team’s talisman with 126 raid points this season, while Ashu Malik and Manjeet have supported him in attack with 65 and 47 raid points respectively. As far as their defence goes, Krishan and Vishal have been the team’s top defenders with 25 and 22 tackle points respectively, while Ravi Kumar has also contributed 18 tackle points.

Similar to Dabang Delhi K.C., Jaipur Pink Panthers also find themselves in the middle of a slump after a good start to their campaign. The Panthers have won five times while losing four games and three of those defeats have come in their last three outings. They will head into Friday’s contest with the aim of winning and will need their lead raider Arjun Deshwal to be at his best. Deshwal has scored 91 raid points this season and he’s been aided in attack by the likes of Rahul Chaudhari (26 raid points) and V Ajith Kumar (25 raid points), both of whom will want to produce more for their team. In defence, skipper Sunil Kumar has led by example with 31 tackle points and he’s had good support in the form of Ankush (29 tackle points) and Sahul Kumar (14 tackle points).

Dabang Delhi K.C. vs Jaipur Pink Panthers head-to-head

Dabang Delhi K.C. and Jaipur Pink Panthers have met 18 times with the former winning on seven occasions and the latter winning nine times. Two games between the teams ended in ties.

Match 58: U.P. Yoddhas vs Puneri Paltan



One of the more inconsistent teams in vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9, U.P. Yoddhas have won four and lost four games so far. The Yoddhas will be keen to string together some wins as they look to climb up the points table and progress beyond the league phase. They certainly have the personnel in their team to go on a winning run, especially in their attack which features Surender Gill and Pardeep Narwal who have scored 82 and 77 raid points respectively so far. On the defensive side            of things, Ashu Singh has been their best defender with 26 tackle points, while their renowned pairing of Sumit and Nitesh Kumar have chipped in with 20 and 16 tackle points respectively.

Puneri Paltan, meanwhile, find themselves in a rich vein of form and have won five, lost two and tied two games in Season 9. Aslam Inamdar has been the team’s go-to raider and has scored 71 raid points, while Mohit Goyat and Akash Shinde have also contributed for the team in attack with 67 and 32 raid points respectively. From the defensive point of view, skipper Fazel Atrachali has been a standout performer for them with 22 tackle points. The likes of Sombir and Gaurav Khatri have also made their presence felt in defence by backing up their captain when needed. While Sombir has scored 17 tackle points, Khatri has managed 10 tackle points.

U.P. Yoddhas vs Puneri Paltan head-to-head

U.P. Yoddhas and Puneri Paltan have squared off eight times with the former winning five times and the latter winning thrice.
