The action from vivo Pro Kabaddi Season 9 at the Shree Shivchhatrapati Sports Complex, Balewadi comes to an end with the final two games of the Pune leg slated to take place on Wednesday. It will be Patna Pirates against Tamil Thalaivas in the first game and Dabang Delhi K.C. against U.P. Yoddhas in the second.

Here are the previews for Day 35.

Match 82: Patna Pirates vs Tamil Thalaivas

Patna Pirates will be eager to return to winning ways after a loss in their last outing. The three-time champions have won six, lost five and tied two matches this season. Apart from their defeat last time around, the Pirates are in good form and will be hoping that their raiding duo of Sachin (117 raid points) and Rohit Gulia (85 raid points) can once again shine for them in attack come Wednesday. Defensively, Sunil with 36 tackle points has been their top performer, while Mohammadreza Chiyaneh and Neeraj Kumar have also contributed 33 and 23 tackle points respectively.

Tamil Thalaivas also head into this game on the back of a defeat despite enjoying a good Pune leg in Season 9 for the most part. The Thalaivas have five wins, six losses and two ties to their name so far. They will be hoping for another win when they face the Pirates and will need their lead raider Narender, who has scored 134 raid points this season, to fire. That said, Narender will need the likes of Ajinkya Pawar (46 raid points) and Himanshu Singh (29 raid points) to help him in attack. In defence, skipper Sagar with 37 tackle points has been their best performer, while Sahil Gulia and M. Abishek have bagged 30 and 26 tackle points respectively.

Patna Pirates have clashed with Tamil Thalaivas on 11 occasions with the former winning six times while the latter have won thrice. Two games ended in ties.

Match 83: Dabang Delhi K.C. vs U.P. Yoddhas

Needless to say, Dabang Delhi K.C. find themselves in an underwhelming run of form and require a change in direction soon for a successful title defence in Season 9. They have six wins and seven losses to their name this season. To beat a confident Yoddhas team, they will need their talisman Naveen Kumar (149 raid points) to be on top of his game, while the likes of Ashu Malik (93 raid points) and Manjeet (54 raid points) need to support him in attack. On the defensive front, Vishal (31 tackle points) and Krishan (30 tackle points) have been their best tacklers this season, while Ravi Kumar and Vijay Kumar have also chipped in with 20 and 17 tackle points respectively.

The Yoddhas, on the other hand, are unbeaten in their last four games having won their previous two matches. They have six wins, five losses and two ties so far. U.P. Yoddhas will head into their upcoming clash with confidence and will fancy their chances of a win with Surender Gill (129 raid points) and Pardeep Narwal (111 raid points) in good form. Rohit Tomar with 35 raid points this season has also looked good lately. As far as the defence is concerned, Ashu Singh (37 tackle points) has been their top performer, while Sumit and Nitesh Kumar have also looked good for 36 and 23 tackle points respectively.

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

Dabang Delhi K.C. and U.P. Yoddhas have squared off eight times with the former thrice and the latter winning on five occasions.
