Pune: A solid game in the second half saw Dabang Delhi edge past U Mumba 36-27 after both teams were separated by just two points at half time, in the Star Sports Pro Kabaddi league. Table toppers U Mumba suffered their second successive defeat but still lead the league standings by seven points. In what was a very tightly fought contest in the first 20 minutes of the game at the Balewadi Sports Complex, it ultimately was the Delhi team that emerged victorious. The second half saw Dabang Delhi rise to prominence, thanks to the invigorated gameplay of their defence, with UMumba trailing nine points behind. The game started off with an equal display of talent from both teams. Mumbai’s Anup Kumar and Delhi’s Surjeet Narwal were scoring the majority of the points, but the rest of their teammates were no slouches either. The teams carried on with their raids, but after failing to make up for a lost player through an empty raid, Mumbai found itself left with only four players to Delhi’s six. Unable to persevere with the lesser numbers, the Delhi team took them to their knees with the match’s first all out, bringing the score to 23–17.
