On the other hand, Naveen Kumar also had a great game as the raider bagged 15 points but it wasn't enough to stop Delhi from receiving their fifth loss this season.
The first four minutes saw successful raid and tackle attempts by both the sides with the score 3-3 before Naveen's one-point raid and Pardeep's attempt saw Delhi take a 5-3 lead.
Patna then saw some terrific effort from both their raiders and defenders as they not only cut the deficit but also took a 12-8 lead by the 11th minute.
Pardeep led Patna with an excellent raiding performance as he scored 16 points and was ably supported by Manjeet (8 points). For Dabang Delhi, Naveen Kumar was the star performer as he scored 15 raid points and almost led his team to a victory.
But Dabang Delhi would rue the missed opportunities as they were in control for most part of the match. Narwal opened Patna Pirates' account in the second minute with a successful raid. It was an evenly contested affair in the first 10 minutes with both the teams trading raid and tackle points.
