 Initial Analysis

While on paper both teams appear to be strong, Delhi Smashers might have the edge over Pune Pistons. Here are some of the reasons:

  1. Mens Singles 1: Wing Ki Wong from Delhi Smashers will have to fight it out with Tin Min Nyugen if he plays him. If Delhi smartly escapes this one, he might win this hands down – but of course Delhi will lose the second one also very easy.
  2. Mens Singles 2: Sai Praneeth from Delhi Smashers might have to battle it out and carve this one, as it appears to be a close call here.
  3. Womens Singles: Juliane Schenk from Pune Pistons is going to have it her way, unless someone from the Delhi Smashers team spring up with a surprise (Arundhati?). So this point appears to be a foregone conclusion for Pune Pistons in this match.
  4. Mens Doubles: Tan Boon Heong and Koo Kien Keat are undoubtedly the best pair in IBL 2013 and hence will be able to win their Mens Doubles match hands down.
  5. Mixed Doubles: Diju and Jwala have already played together for many years and might be quite formidable to defeat, unless Pune Pistons come up with an idea of playing Ashwini along with Joachim. This is a close one and hence no clear winner here.

Prediction Conclusion

With two sure wins (Mens Singles 1 and Mens Doubles), Delhi Smashers just have to work hard enough to win either the second Mens Singles match or the Mixed Doubles match, which appears to be quite a possibility. Hence the thought is Delhi Smashers are going to win this one 3-2 over Pune Pistons. Lets wait and watch :-)
