Dabang Delhi K.C. 36-30 U Mumba

No Naveen Kumar? No problem say the Dabang Delhi K.C! They have secured a win and how! The game hung in balance right until the final few minutes of the match, where an all-out was inflicted on U Mumba, which put their opponents in the driver's seat. Far too many errors in the defence from U Mumba and credit must be given to Delhi. They capitalised in the absence of Fazel and Abhishek on the mat to fetch themselves a commanding lead. Vijay starred with a Super 10 to his name but Neeraj Narwal stole the limelight with his swift and enticing raiding, which fetched him 6 points after coming in as a substitute raider. U Mumba tapered off in the second half and were unable to hold their nerves when it mattered the most. Their four-match unbeaten streak has been broken and they will certainly be hoping to make a stronger comeback in their next encounter.

A brilliant comeback from U Mumba after they were trailing for a majority of the first half. A couple of Super Tackles combined with some eclectic and energetic raiding from substitute raider Shivam has pulled things back for the Mumbai outfit. As for Delhi, they made a strong start to this contest and seemed to be running away with the encounter but errors in both departments have allowed their rivals to get back in the contest. Vijay and Ashu Malik sharing the raiding responsibilities while the corner defenders will need to have a better half. As for U Mumba, it has been a joint effort from the players and with the Delhi side down to two men, they will be looking to inflict the all out as soon as possible in the second half. It is even-stevens going into the second half. Which side will emerge on top? Stick around to find out!

Right then, Dabang Delhi K.C. will be provided with the opportunity of fortifying their position at the top of the table when they take on U Mumba tonight. With eight wins, two ties and four losses from fourteen games, the Delhi outfit is arguably one of the best sides in this tournament so far. Despite injury concerns to Naveen Kumar and the debate surrounding the supporting raider, the Delhi side has managed to snare wins. Their recent form has been pretty topsy-turvy, winning three and losing three games in their last six encounters. However, they come into this match on the back of a dominating win against the Gujarat Giants and will be looking to carry on the momentum. 

U Mumba, on the other hand, have played only thirteen encounters so far and will be looking to ascend into the top two in the coming few days. They have five wins, the same number or ties and three losses thus far but are on a four-match unbeaten streak, one which they will definitely want to extend in this encounter. In their previous outing against Delhi, it was the latter who had claimed the match and the Mumba side will be hungry for revenge. Fazel & Co. will need to come out all guns blazing if they are to put a stop to the men from the capital city of India.
