Q: You had promised your raiders would perform better than last game and it happened!

Dabang Delhi K.C.
Q: You had avoided an early All-Out and then you made a superb comeback with Super Tackle...
Joginder Singh Narwal: It turned out very well... but then later (Vikash) Khandola took it away from us. Otherwise it was a close match, we were leading by some two points with just over 10 minutes left in the match. But this is nature of the game.
Q: What was the turning point of the match?
Krishan Kumar Hooda: We had the match in our hands. But Khandola got away from our defence and took those three points, that steered the match away from us.
