Dabang Delhi K.C.
Q. Can you give us your thoughts on the team’s performance?
Krishan Kumar Hooda: I said before the match, that we’ll make Delhi proud. And today I feel we’ve done that. This win is a gift to all our supporters.
Q. You’ve gone above Puneri Paltan in the table now…
Krishan Kumar Hooda: I don’t think there is a team in this league we haven’t beaten yet. I’ve always believed we are as good as any team in VIVO Pro Kabaddi. We’ve played well against every opponent we’ve faced.
Q. Could you provide your view on the Super Tackles that were done in the match?
Joginder Singh Narwal: If you assess the matches, whichever team manages two or more Super Tackles usually comes out on top. Today we managed to get two and also won the game.
Q. How would you rate Vishal Mane’s performance?
Joginder Singh Narwal: The entire country watched his performance tonight. We trusted him with a responsibility and he repaid our faith in him. We’re very happy with him.
Q. You are closing in on a Playoff berth. How do you assess your season so far?
Joginder Singh Narwal: We’ve played well as a team. Our defence has been magnificent and so has our offence. Both our departments are complimenting the other well. Today the coach told us before the match that we had never beaten Telugu Titans. So, we promised him pre-match that today we’ll make history. And we did.
