  • Action from the game between Telegu Titans and Dabang Delhi

Vizag side Telegu Titans maintained their 100 percent win record at home as they beat Dabang Delhi 45-26 at the Port Trust Indoor Stadium on Tuesday. The win was their third on the trot at home and takes them to fourth in the league standings with 24 points from 11 games. With this win the Vizag leg comes to an end with the next round of matches shifting to the city of Jaipur.

After proving their mettle winning the previous two games, the home side faced yet another team who wanted a hat trick of victories as well. Dabang Delhi determined to deny them their third victory in a row.

Having dominated the first half, the Titans increased their stranglehold towards the end of the game with the Delhi side visibly falling apart as the home side increased their lead by 17 points, ousting Delhi's prized raiders, Kashiling and Surjeet. Deepak Niwas Hooda added to the damage inflicted on Delhi as he claimed two points off them, leaving Delhi with only two men. As Jasmer Singh's tackle on Rahul Chaudhari failed, the inevitable LONA points were awarded to the home team. Content with the points in their kitty, the Telegu Titans kept the final five minutes a low-key affair and emerged victorious by 19 points.

The first match of the Jaipur leg sees home side Pink Panthers take on the Bengaluru Bulls at the Kanteerava Indoor Stadium on Tuesday.
