Both teams slowed down the match and started playing in DO-Or_die raids at the starting of 2nd half. Dabang Delhi failed to support Naveen and Naveen spent most of the time on the bench when Warriors inflicted one more All-Out on Dabang Delhi in just 8 minutes of 2nd half. Naveen scored 21st Super 10 of the season after the All-Out, but Rinku tackled Naveen and sent him back to the bench again which lead to one more All-Out on Dabang Delhi.

Match Preview: Dabang Delhi takes on Bengal Warriors in the finals of Pro Kabaddi season 7
Dabang and Warriors have squared off against each other in a total of 14 times across PKL1 and PKL7, where both the teams have equal wins under their belt with 2 draws. Over the last 5 encounters, Delhi had an upper hand with 3 wins and a draw, but in the last encounter, Warriors had a win with a huge lead.
Finals will be a challenging match for Warriors as Maninder was unfit and was out of the mat in an important match like semi-finals, Will Maninder be fit enough to be a part of the team as Warriors will want a leader to be on the mat to reduced unnecessary advance tackles. Will BC Ramesh's Karnataka raiders K. Prapanjan and Sukesh Hegde be able to thrash Ravinder Pahal??
Dabang Delhi is looking like they have been studying important players very closely, the way they put all their strategies against Pawan Sehrawat in semis to keeping him off the mat for most of the time. Will Dabang Delhi have plans against Sukesh, Prapanjan, and Nabibaksh?
