PKL: Dabang Delhi KC, Bengal Warriors seal direct entry into semifinals


Six teams are in the fray for the top prize of ₹3 crore.

Dabang Delhi KC and Bengal Warriors sealed a direct entry into the semifinals of Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) season seven. These top-two finishers in the league await the winners in the eliminators to take place on Monday at the EKA Arena TransStadia, Ahmedabad.

Six teams are in the fray for the top prize of ₹3 crore. In case of a tie in the play-offs, the game will extend to a seven-minute tie-breaker (two halves of 3.5 minutes each), followed by a golden raid if the tie-breaker scores are level.

Dabang will play the eliminator 1 winner — UP Yoddha vs Bengaluru Bulls on Oct. 16 — while Bengal will take on the eliminator 2 winner — U Mumba vs Haryana Steelers — in another semifinal on the same night to determine the two finalists.

Steelers replaced Gujarat FortuneGiants among the six sides which had booked a play-off berth last time in season six. The latter, hosting the Ahmedabad leg, ended ninth out of 12 teams competing in the 2019 season.
