...
FULL TIME Jaypee Punjab Warriors 1-6 Delhi Waveriders
...
Punjab Warriors look defeated and frustrated. This match cannot end sooner for them
...
The attacks from Delhi have been relentless and they force yet another save from Jugraj, who clears his lines
...
SAVED!! Jugraj prevents the score from becoming 7-1 as Rupinder hits his drag flick straight into the keeper. He smiles and jogs back. Two minutes remain
...
Surender tries to run down the clock and is pushed in the back. Referee awards a penalty corner
...
Scintillating hockey from Delhi yet again as Mandeep plays a scoop and the ball reaches Talwinder eventually. He takes a shot and then calls for a referral but it is turned down. 
...
Sardar Singh has not had a good night today, failing to control midfield, receiving card and constantly chatting with referees for some reason or the other. Four minutes remain. Delhi Waveriders lead 6-1
...
Jaypee Punjab Warriors have been really disintegrated in attack and there is absolutely no shape to the way they are playing. Having said that, Delhi Waveriders defenders have been stellar
...
Halfway through the final quarter and Punjab have removed Clemons to bring in Jugraj and keep 5 foreign players on the field
...
Lewers injects and CLEMONS Saves Rupinder's drag flick
...
Delhi break on the counter and Mandeep, who sees Talwinder near the goal, drills it in and wins a PC
...
Just as we say that, Punjab win a penalty corner but it goes to waste as the control is quite poor
...
Delhi are controlling possession and the shape of their midfield is superlative. Punjab have no answer at the moment
...
You have to laud the way Delhi Waveriders are playing at the moment and it would not be a surprise if they score yet again
...
Fourth Quarter is underway!
...
The third quarter comes to an end and it has been all Delhi in this segment of play. Can Warriors make a come back? 
...
Delhi Waveriders are flying here and they have, in all likelihood, sealed the game
...
GOOOOOOOALLLLLLL Ian Lewers scores. 6-1
...
PENALTY STROKE!! Delhi score on the break but referee does not allow and gives a penalty stroke
...
MISS!!! Pruyser should have scored there for Jaypee Punjab Warriors as he receives a good pass in front of goal but misses it completely. Makes a hash of it. 
...
Yet again! It is that man Mandeep Singh, who has come good for Delhi Waveriders in a crucial contest. 
...
This is beautiful hockey from Delhi Waveriders as they combine beautifully to score a goal that is worth its weight in gold. Parwinder receives a ball in the circle and controls it well to scoop it up for Mandeep, who turns it in. Beautiful beautiful
...
GOOOOOOOALLLLLLLL Mandeep Singh scores for Delhi Waveriders!!!  4-1 
...
NEARLYYY!!! Reid-Ross delivers another rocket like drag flick but it is a little too uppish and goes above the goal. Punjab survive
...
STUNNING HOCKEY FROM Delhi Waveriders!! Harjeet Singh steals the ball from a Punjab player in his own half and then makes an excellent run forward, eventually passing to Mandeep, who passes to Talwinder. Referee gives a free hit but Delhi refer and win a PC
...
Exciting passage of play here as Punjab press high up the pitch and look to attack but Delhi break on the counter through Knowles, who is blocked by Varun Kumar. Great hockey on both ends
...
Punjab are looking a little more energetic at the outset and are pressing higher up the pitch. This is good hockey from Punjab and they need to provide width and space to Armaan Qureshi and SV Sunil
...
We are underway in the second half and Delhi Waveriders are attacking from right to left
...
Jaypee Punjab Warriors have pulled back a bit of momentum here in Chandigarh and they are just one field goal away from being in the lead. 
...
HALF TIME Jaypee Punjab Warriors 1-2 Delhi Waveriders
...
Lovely injection from Knowles and Gleghorne produces a stunning drag flick to reduce the deficit to one goal
...
Penalty Corner to Punjab and GOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLLLLLL They are back in the game
...
About 2 minutes remain in the half here and Barry Dancer's men are not looking comfortable on the turf. They have not managed to enjoy a lot of possession or create concrete chances
...
NEARLY!!! Delhi Waveriders should have been 3-0 up there. A fumble from Varun Kumar hands the ball to Reid-Ross and his shot is saved by Vincent Vanasch
...
Another reason why Punjab have been wary of Delhi is the constant danger of Mandeep SIngh, who has been really dangerous on the break and is lethal. He won them the penalty corner as well
...
Interestingly, SV Sunil and Armaan Qureshi have been stifled by the Delhi midfield and they have got no space whatsoever to make runs
...
Punjab Warriors need to find an answer and they need to find it quick because Delhi are set up formidably and they do not look to be in any danger
...
Just when you thought Reid Ross is going to take the PC, Rupinder Pal SIngh shows you why he is such a dangerous customer. 
...
GOOOOOOOALLLLLLLLLLLLLL Rupinder Pal Singh scores from the Penalty Corner for Delhi Waveriders 2-0
...
Quarter 2 begins and Delhi Waveriders win the ball straight away. They have set themselves up brilliantly to negate the pace possessed by Punjab in attack. 
...
QUARTER 1 comes to an end and it is 1-0 to Delhi Waveriders 
...
Three minutes remain in the first quarter and Punjab have been a little active after conceding that early penalty corner. 
...
NEARLY!!!! SV Sunil takes a lovely push into the circle and it is received by Sardar, whose shot goes just wide
...
The players are really busy in the game at the moment but a lot of it is being played in irrelevant areas. 
...
Delhi break again on the counter but this time Punjab are up to it and the ball is well defended. 
...
Ross-Reid has taken over drag flick responsibilities from Rupinder Pal Sigh and has delivered
...
Justin Reid-Ross with an absolute belter of a drag flick has given the lead to Delhi Waveriders and Punjab pay the price of Mark Knowles' stupid error
...
Delhi win another penalty corner and GOOOOOOOOOOOALLLLLL Delhi Waveriders lead 1-0
...
SAVED!!! Clemons produces a stunning save as the drag flick is coming at a speed of knots. Delhi call for a referral
...
COUNTER and PENALTY CORNER!! Mandeep Singh breaks on the counter for Delhi Waveriders and is fouled by Knowles
...
SAVED!! Clemons brought into action as he is forced to make a good save
...
Sardar Singh makes a good interception to prevent forward movement from Delhi and then barks instructions to his teammates. The former India captain is going to be key if the home team are to win today. 
...
Jaypee Punjab Warriors, attacking from right to left, get us underway and they straight away look to create an incision in the opposition circle but the Delhi defence is up to it. 
...
PEEEEPPPP
...
The players are out on the turf and we are nearing the start of what could be an exciting contest of hockey. 
...
We are inching closer to the start of this crucial contest. Well, to be honest, all contests in Hockey India League are going to be important from a tournament perspective, given that this is the business end of the competition. 
...
...
Delhi Waveriders are currently sitting on 16 points from 7 games and a win would take them to third position, above Uttar Pradesh Wizards. Mandeep Singh has been stunning in front of goal, scoring and both creating chances regularly. However, they have been profligate throughout the tournament and goals have been concentrated in a few games. They will need to take their game to the next level in a game that is likely to be really tight as Jaypee Punjab Warriors keep their shape really well. 
...
Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the 2017 Hockey India League and we have for you the contest between Jaypee Punjab Warriors and Delhi Waveriders. The league is moving towards its business end and both teams are languishing at the bottom of the table in 6th and 7th positions, respectively. However, a win for either could put them as high third today and winning would be imperative. Both teams have been pretty patchy throughout the tournament and good performances have come sparsely, something they would be looking to change today.
