Kolkata: Dabang Delhi shot into top four after thrashing hosts Bengal Warriors while Bengaluru Bulls scripted a fine comeback in the second half to hand Puneri Paltan their fourth successive loss in the Pro Kabaddi League at the Netaji Indoor Stadium here on Saturday.
Riding some rock solid tackle by stand-in captain Ravinder Singh Pahal and Amit Chhillar, Delhi Dabang pinned down almost every effort of the home side en route to capping a comprehensive 32-21 win.
Delhi also were menacing with their raids with Kashiling Adake and Rohit Chaudary scoring six each to hand them a commanding 10-point lead with two minutes left. Chaudary was adjudged Best Raider, while Pahal who led the side in absence of Jasmer Singh, was adjudged 'Best Defender'.
Having returned to winning ways against Puneri Paltan, Delhi (10) thus displaced Bengal Warriors from fourth place with second successive win here. Backed by cheering fans, Bengal Warriors on the other hand cut a sorry figure, ending their home stretch on a disappointing note.
U Mumba (25 points) lead the eight-team standings with an all win record, 10 points clear of Telugu Titans and Bengaluru Bulls after the conclusion of Kolkata leg.
