Last two days have been tough for Dabang Delhi. They played well and were certain to win a game on each day, before the defence crumbled at the last moment, giving away crucial points. Yesterday’s loss against Puneri Paltan means that the Delhi side is now only playing for pride. Tonight, they are up against an extremely talented Haryana side which currently sits on the second spot in the points table in Zone A but even that doesn’t guarantee a playoff spot. With the likes of U Mumba and Jaipur Pink Panthers on their heels, Haryana will have to win tonight’s game. In the last, Haryana introduced some new faces on the court and the strategy worked in their favour. They have enough quality to trouble the Delhi defence which hasn’t let the side down on many occasions. If they slack off tonight, Haryana will show no mercy and could easily dismantle them within a matter of minutes.
