Dabang Delhi K.C. 32-29 Patna Pirates

Well what a game we have been treated to! After all seemed to have gone awry for the Pirates, they staged a massive comeback to level the score in the thirtieth minute as they inflicted an all-out upon Delhi. However, the experienced Delhi side was quick to recover from the loss and minted a lead, albeit a short one, for the rest of the contest. in the end, it proved far too much for the Pirates as they are handed a narrow 3-point defeat. Vijay was sensational with 9 raid points while we saw Sandeep Narwal in a new avatar today, raiding his heart out and picking up 7 raid and a tackle point.

Who would have possibly imagined that Delhi would have a 9-point lead over the Pirates in a game that Naveen Kumar is not playing! Nonetheless, that is the scenario and it has been a sublime show from the Delhi outfit tonight! The defence has come to the fore, with skipper Manjeet Chhillar taking responsibility and leading from the front. Sandeep Narwal has been used in the raiding department more often and it has proved to be a masterstroke, with Narwal picking up 5 raid points. As for the Pirates, the defence has not been upto the mark tonight and far too many errors in the defence has played a major part in conceding the lead to Delhi.

Right then, we have a top-of-the-table clash on our hands tonight! On one hand, the Dabang Delhi K.C. who have acquired 37 points in their ten matches and are placed third while on the other, the Patna Pirates sit second in the points table with a superior 39 points from the ten fixtures that they have been a part of so far. It has been a brilliant campaign for both sides in this tournament thus far and we can certainly expect them to come out all guns blazing to secure yet another win, which will propel the winner to the numero uno spot. 

Dabang Delhi, after suffering a humiliating 39-point defeat against the Bulls, were re-enforced with the return of Naveen Kumar as they edged past the Steelers by a bare margin of 3 points. However, it was not smooth sailing for the Delhi outfit as Naveen was sent to the bench on multiple occasions. Would it not have been for Vijay's belligerent Super 10, Delhi were staring at another loss on the trot after remaining loss-less till before their encounter against the Bulls. Nonetheless, Delhi will be hoping for similar contributions from their support raiders and will expect Naveen to run through the Pirates' defence. 

The Patna Pirates, meanwhile, have three wins, one loss and one tie from their previous five games. They come into this match on the back of an emphatic 7-point win against the Bulls. In the absence of star raider Monu Goyat, Sachin and the defence stepped up. Right corner defender Sunil stole the show with 9 tackle points to his name while the rest of the defence was on point. They will look to replicate a similar performance as they hope to stop a rampaging Naveen Kumar. We are in for a high-scoring thriller and expect raiders to wreak havoc in this contest.
