The Eagles came from behind to register another comfortable win (39-28) over Bengal Warriors at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Kochi. Our Dabangs will next face UP Yoddha tomorrow in the third eliminator.
Team Dabang Delhi made just one change in the Playing 7. Vishal Lather came in for Viraj Landge. In a slow start to the first half, our boys took the initial lead with 5-3 on the board after eight minutes of the first half.
The match was quite neck-to-neck till the last two minutes of the first half as Bengal Warriors took a slight lead at the end of the first-half with the score reading 13-17 in favour of Bengal Warriors.
Dabang Delhi were a changed unit in the second half. Inside the first eight minutes of the second half, the Eagles took some giant steps and kept the scorecard ticking. Bengal Warriors were just clueless in the second half. Even with the likes of Maninder Singh in their unit, Bengal Warriors could only score 11 points in the last 20 minutes, compared to the 26 points fetched by our boys.
Naveen Kumar stole the show with yet another Super 10 and was well supported by Chandran Ranjit. In defence, the hawk Ravinder Pahal scored 4 points and made his presence felt in defence.
It has been a great run for our Dabangs this season. Joginder Narwal led side can't afford to let go of the momentum. Every match in the playoffs is a do-or-die for us and we are assured of the fact that we still have a long way to go.
