The defending champions Dabang Delhi KC take on UP Yoddhas in the final match of the Pune leg of Vivo Pro Kabaddi 2022 on Wednesday, November 16, at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex.
After making a cracking start, the wheels have fallen off Delhi’s wagon as they find themselves stranded in ninth on the points table. A crippling 57-32 defeat was their latest, and they’ll be itching to get back out there and make up for the loss. The good thing for Delhi is that a win here should take them back into the top half of the table and Naveen Kumar and Co. will be keen to do just that.
Yoddhas seem to have come together as a unit in recent matches, and their latest game saw them beat the Telugu Titans 41-30. While Pardeep Narwal’s form has kept fluctuating, Surender Gill has been in fine flow. The defense has also stepped up.

DEL vs UP Dream11 Team Prediction Top Picks, Pro Kabaddi 2022, Match 83
Raider – Surender Gill
Based on current form, Surender Gill seems like a slightly better pick than Naveen Kumar. Yoddhas’ lead raider has picked up back-to-back Super 10s and there’s a good chance he will keep that up against an out-of-form Delhi defense.
Defender – Sumit
Fresh off a seven-point haul against the Titans, Sumit should be brimming with confidence heading into this game. The left corner has slowly moved up the rankings and is now No. 10 on the tackle point charts.
All-Rounder – Vijay Malik
Vijay Malik made a long-awaited comeback and picked up a Super 10 on his return to the side. While most of it was negated by Delhi’s poor result, he does become an interesting option, especially with how his inclusion affects Ashu Malik’s game.

Dabang Delhi KC vs UP Yoddhas Expert tips for Pro Kabaddi 2022
It’s really hard to fit the three top raiders into one side, let alone accommodate the defense. While it is possible to have a team consisting of Naveen, Pardeep, and Surender, it will become very lopsided, as I’ve shown in the Head to Head suggestion. There’s a good chance of missing plenty of point hauls from the defense and I wouldn’t suggest that.
