Delhi struggled to get going against a robust opposition and none of its players managed to create an impact. Meraj Sheykh had a match to forget as he failed to register a single point. Despite the defeat, Dabang Delhi remains in the hunt for a spot in the playoffs.

Rohit got U Mumba off to a quick start with two raids in two minutes to see the side lead 4-1. The first half saw Chandran Ranjit pick up a couple of raid points, but no other Dabang Delhi raider impresed.
