PKL 9 stats: Undefeated Dabang Delhi, Patna Pirates' struggles headline Week 2

Dabang Delhi captain Naveen Kumar PKL

Patna Pirates - the Pro Kabaddi League's most successful team - are yet to win a game, Dabang Delhi can't stop winning games and UP Yoddhas' defensive troubles continue.

Here's the second week of PKL 9 summed up in numbers:


Marks to the sections of the crowd that ran chants of "RCB, RCB" when Bengaluru Bulls were playing. Not over the IPL, are we?


Seconds left when Telugu Titans' Siddharth Desai inadvertently crossed the midline. Siddharth had gotten two crucial points to all but ensure his side a win, but alas he went over the line a second too soon. Aslam Inamdar went in and notched up two points to steer Puneri Paltan to a last-gasp win.


Reigning champions Dabang Delhi remain undefeated in all five of their opening games. They remain the only team to have only wins against their name thus far.


Total points Patna Pirates have managed in as many games. No wins to show. Not a good look for PKL's most successful team.


Patna Pirates raider Sachin Tanwar and Gujarat Giants' Rakesh have scored the most do-or-die raid points.


Dabang Delhi captain Naveen Kumar averages 13.59 points each game. He's got 58 raid points and five Super 10s to his name.


Girish Maruti Ernak continues to be PKL9's most successful defender with 20 points. Girish, who plays in the left corner position for Bengal Warriors, is also the only defender to register two High 5s.


The biggest win margin in PKL9 so far as Bengal Warriors thrashed Patna Pirates 54-26. The Pirates could not manage a single All Out and only scored seven tackle points.


Gujarat Giants captain Chandran Ranjit scored 20 points - 39% of the team's total points - in his side's morale-boosting win over UP Yoddhas.


Dabang Delhi's point difference after first five games. They won two of their games by a 20-point margin.


Points scored between Gujarat Giants and UP Yoddhas. The Giants walked away with a 51-45 win in what has been PKL9's highest-scoring game so far.


For a side that's known for its defensive prowess, UP Yoddhas' backline has been faulty this season, conceding 194 points. The defence managed just three tackle points in Wednesday's loss to Gujarat Giants.
