Delhiites will be roaring at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex tonight as Dabang Delhi plays their last match on home ground against Bengal Warriors. This is the second match the team will play against Bengal Warriors and they are well prepared after their first match in Netaji Indoor Stadium, Kolkata.
Bengal Warriors had a very close win in the former game where they had to hold their nerves in the closing minutes to the most important part with Dabang Delhi by two minutes to score. Bengal Warriors had the upper hand leading 28-14 at the half-time but the Delhi team made a spectacular comeback through Kashiling Adake (10 raid points) and Surjeet Narwal (8) as they made it 38-38 in 36 minutes. Bengal Warriors however made it count as they held Adake in the dying minutes to almost tilt the match in Bengal’s favour before they coasted to a 42-40 win.
Tonight’s game will be a lot different with Delhi’s boisterous crowd cheering for Dabang Delhi. The team has changed its game plan and has made some amendments in their strategies too.
Coach Arjun Singh is positive about the team’s performance in their upcoming match against the Bengal Warriors. Both the teams are charged up for the game that promises to be high on the thrill factor and amazing crowd.
Speaking ahead of the match, team owner, Ms Radha Kapoor said, “It’s been a testing last three days with our team kneeling with injuries and Surjeet fighting a viral fever, however with the inclusion of two replacements in Rakesh Kumar (all rounder) and Ravinder Singh (defender), our team is confident to leave Delhi on a winning note.”
The team’s upcoming matches after tonight’s Delhi match will be in Patna, Vizag and Jaipur and two matches each in Pune and Bangalore. Since it’s the last match in Delhi, the capital is anxiously waiting to witness their team play tonight.
