Puneri Paltan, on the other hand, ran it close but failed to bag at least a draw as Manjeet self-outed himself in the final raid. Nitin Tomar was their top raider with eight points while Girish Ernak was the best defender with four tackle points.
Puneri Paltan were looking to make it a hat-trick of wins while Dabang Delhi were aiming to retain top spot in the standings. At the end of the day, it were Delhi who were able to fulfill their mission and stayed on top of the table.
Puneri Paltan had enjoyed a tremendous change in fortune over their past two matches, beating Patna Pirates and Gujarat Fortunegiants but then came up against a formidable Delhi team.
Apart from their blip against Gujarat Fortunegiants, Dabang Delhi have been in tremendous form this season and sit atop the Pro Kabaddi standings with 26 points. They ended the Jaipur Pink Panthers' unbeaten start to the campaign in their previous encounter with an impressive 35-24 victory in Patna.
