Dabang Delhi is a tale of two contrasting fortunes in the Pro Kabaddi League. For the first five seasons, they could not manage to make it to the playoffs even once, but in the sixth and the seventh, they emerged as the runners-up of the tournament, making them a force to reckon with.

What happened in 2019

With 15 wins in 22 matches, Dabang Delhi topped the points table in the last season. Naveen Kumar emerged as their main player, who secured 303 points throughout the season and took them to the final, where they lost to Bengal Warriors

Auctions 2021

A lot of credit must be given to the team management for retaining the younger lot -- Vijay Kumar, Neeraj Narwal, Naveen Kumar, Balram, Sumit, Mohit. While at the auctions, they went for the experienced players and bagged Sandeep Narwal (60L), Ajay Thakur (46L), Jeeva Kumar (44L), Manjeet Chillar and Joginder Narwal. 

Expectations

Just like the last two seasons, Delhi once again have the team to deliver the goods. On paper, the team looks one of the strongest in the tournament, and oppositions would be wary of their strengths. If they do not make it to the playoffs, it will be a big upset in the tournament. In fact, just looking at the team, they are contenders to lift the trophy.
