Two more games remain in the league season of the Pro Kabaddi League 2015. The last leg sees the matches taking place at the Kormangala Indoor Stadium in Bengaluru, before shifting base to the IGI Indoor Stadium in the national capital for the playoffs.
Home side Bengaluru Yodhas take on Dilli Veer on Wednesday. There is a stark contrast between the two teams. While the Bengaluru side has four points so far, the Delhi side is yet to open its campaign in the competition this time.
In their final league game tonight, Yodhas, who have already confirmed their spot in the playoffs, will be looking to increase their points tally as well as their team morale, while Dilli Veer will be looking to bowing out from the tournament with a win.
The biggest star for Bengaluru Yodhas has been Narsingh Yadhav, who is yet to lose any bout in the Men's 74kg category this year. "My performance in this competition has been very encouraging and has helped boost my confidence," the bronze medal winner at the 2015 World Wrestling Championship in Las Vegas said.
"I have wrestled against some of the top domestic contenders in the 74kg category and also against a seasoned foreign wrestler. I believe I can continue this run and drive my team towards victory," he added.
For Delhi, their star player has been Vinesh Phogat. The team may not have won any of their games this season, but Vinesh, a gold medal winner at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, has posted wins in every single bout in the competition in the women's 48kg category.
Narsingh is aware of that, and has urged his team not to be complacent in tonight's clash. "Yes, they (Dilli Veer) have not had the best of tournaments. However, they are still a dangerous team. They have wrestlers in their ranks who can hurt us and we need to be on our guard against them," Narsingh said.
Bengaluru Yodhas vs Dilli Veer is scheduled for a 7 pm IST start.
