U.P. Yoddha 33-37 Dabang Delhi K.C.

U.P. Yoddha have squandered a lead as the Dabang Delhi K.C. extend their unbeaten lead! It is all courtesy of The Naveen Express, who after having a quiet first half, staged a grand comeback in the second. Came back with a vengeance and finished with 18 points from the contest, after he had only three to his name at the end of the first half. The defence was choppy in the second half as well but Naveen's sheer brilliance has carried the Delhi outfit over the line! It is yet another loss for UP Yoddha and they will go back to the drawing board. However, Pardeep's return to form will certainly be something they will be happy with.

U.P. Yoddha 18-13 Dabang Delhi K.C.

It would not be wrong to say that the defence prowess of both sides has been on display in this half. However, it is the UP Yoddha who have performed better and the scoreline rightly suggests that. Shades of the old Pardeep Narwal were seen again as he has scored 7 points thus far. Every member of the UP Yoddha side has chipped in with points and has put them in the lead. 

The same cannot be said for the Dabang Delhi K.C. They have had an under-par game and have reeled under the pressure. With Naveen Kumar being tackled constantly, Vijay has been forced to do the bulk of the scoring in the raiding department. He has picked up 6 points so far and will be hoping to contribute with more for a winning cause. Too many unnecessary errors from the Delhi defence and they will need to correct that if they are to make a comeback in this match.

Right then, it is the Naveen Express back in action again as the Dabang Delhi K.C. lock horns with U.P. Yoddha. Both sides have had quite contrasting campaigns so far this season and it is the latter who will be desperate to turn it around with a win against a formidable Delhi side. However, it will be easier said than done for the Yoddha outfit as they will be going up against Naveen Kumar, who has been absolutely unstoppable this season. 

All eyes will be on Pardeep Narwal as the 'Record Breaker' will attempt to put a halt to the Dabang Delhi K.C's rampant unbeaten run. It will be upto the defenders to figure out and execute a plan to stop Naveen in this contest. On the other hand, the experienced Delhi defence will look to be at the top of their game in a bid to pick up another win and reclaim the top position in the points table. Lots to play for and it promises to be a cracker of a contest!
