Naveen Kumar, the talented raider picked up another Super 10 (his 17th consecutive) as Delhi produced a near-flawless performance to end Paltan's campaign in the league.

Delhi, as expected, started on the front foot, with their raider-in-chief Naveen Kumar looking unstoppable. The 19-year-old raider picked points at will, pulling out the acrobatic moves in the process, as the Delhi side inflicting an all-out on Pune in the seveth minute of the match.

Pune badly missed the services of their raider Pankaj Mohite, who sat out due to fever. Their raiders struggled as Ravinder Pahal, who completed 50 tackle points this season, and Joginder Narwal, the corners for Delhi, also got into the game with successful tackles.

Naveen kept adding to his points tally as he clinched a personal record of becoming the fastest player to secure 400 raid points in the PKL history.

The Delhi side secured their second All-Out with seven minutes remaining to half time to open up a 14-point lead.

Manjeet was once again the only positive player on the mat for Pune and his valiant efforts in the raids allowed the side to cling on to the hope of coming back into the match. The first half ended 30-16 with Delhi on top.

The second half turned out to be much of the same with Delhi dominating in all departments.
